Let the Music Play

With the announcement of the latest round of iPods by Apple, music listening has again become the in thing. With touch screens and no buttons, a built in FM-tuner, better battery life and a slew of other features, the new iPods have generated a lot of excitement.

On the Sunny Side of the Street

This summer was one for the books – the hot weather books, that is. Day after day of hot, sweltering. 40+ degree days, followed by uncomfortable nights – those global warming people went just a little too far this month! Things may have cooled down a bit this week, but we’re not out of the hot water just yet – there’s plenty of sun, if not fun, still on the way.

The Paperless Book

The paperless office may still be a long way off, but the forests of the world have what to celebrate: The paperless living room is here, now, and is coming to an e-book reader near you!
