Sony Pocket-Size E-Reader Close, No Cigar

- - 1 Comment

Sony is feeding on scraps at the e-reader table, and their compact PRS-350 is not going to change anything about that. What they were going for was a travel-sized idiot-proof e-reader to win over people who don’t already own one. What they ended up with was a device that gets...

Colorware iPad Grip

ColorWare’s Grip For the iPad Is Awesome (video)


ColorWare is doing a good thing for iPad users. If given the choice to enshrine my iPad in a strong, light, and barely noticeable aircraft-grade aluminum wireframe briefcase handle, I would do it in a heartbeat. And that’s the thing, now I can do it, and ColorWare’s site for their...

Booq iPad Trapper Keeper Case

Oh the 90s and how I don’t miss them.  But if you do and own an iPad here is a throw back: the Boa Folio iPad case.  In short order it’s like a trapper keeper, hence my 90s remark. The front has an iPhone pocket, while the case itself provides...

New Kobo From Borders Stalking The Kindle Wi-Fi


Borders is going head to head with Amazon in the e-reader segment without making any excuses. The new version of its Kobo e-reader is priced exactly as much as Amazon’s Wi-fi-only Kindle – $140, and just like the entry-level Kindle, it has been blessed with Wi-Fi. The original Kobo could...


iControlPad iPhone Gaming Mod Looks Awesome


I wonder why nobody’s come up with this gadget until now, and why a design like this – a console-like control environment addition to the iPhone – hasn’t been found on people’s wish lists more often. No matter now, the iControlPad is near completion, and it will bring a Nintendo’s...
