Terrible. I just made a donation myself, figured I'd post here and bump this back to the top for anyone that may have missed it.

I just read a positive review of the new Incredible. My wife has the original and really likes...

I live just outside a 4g market so I'll probably get it soon. One complaint is the lack of a dual-core processor, but I'm not a gamer. The huge amount of memory is nice though. Apparently, the phone has already been rooted too. Thoughts from others? Pros or cons...
+1 for Hostgator. I've been using them for my site for a while and never had a problem. Their support has been top notch, they even helped me troubleshoot a Wordpress issue that clearly was not up to them to solve. Pretty inexpensive too.

The contrast ratio between the background and the text was very low and made the words more difficult to pick out than when using a tablet. In fact, the sickly grey colour of the background is just plain ugly. The lack of colour is also a major drawback when reading a text that contains photos or maps where colour can be important; for example, you could never read a book about art history or...

I don't see a long term future for the kindle in a future filled with tablets. $200 is already too much to spend for something that can only fulfill one of the dozens of functions of an iPad or other slate. Actually I was not making any assumptions about your knowledge or lack of knowledge on e-readers. I was simply...

I'm starting to cigar review for my blog and I don't have a camera (the BB 3.2 MP camera just isn't cutting it anymore) so I'm excited to finally have something good to p&s with. I'm excited for it to come. You might also want to look into a photo tent. I purchased the one below to take pictures for my blog on office supplies. ...
Quote: Originally Posted by Ataturk I haven't played with these things much, but I'm curious as to how fast they load books, turn pages, load files, etc. I've heard some of them can be pretty slow. If I get some time tonight or tomorrow, I can try and take a video of the whole purchase, download, page flip experience on one of the books I'm planning on buying. Also in addition to the places listed above, Staples also carries them and has some...
Quote: Originally Posted by holymadness ^^ Hmm no, that is a poor analogy. BryanHarig has got it right. Its one advantage is its price. No I think the analogy was dead on, what was lacking might have been a better explanation of what I mean. Basically, it is similar in that both a Prius and a Kindle are both a one trick pony (not in a negative sense) be it getting good gas mileage or significantly improving the reading experience. Neither...
