Link to story on Online Info

Includes news on Stanza Reader for e-books on iPhone

Apparently more downloads that sales of Kindle so far.

So what is an e-book?

Baseball and broadband

It's a silly little metaphor, (but then it is Monday morning) - what's the similarity between baseball and mobile broadband?

More about ePUB and the Sony reader etc. I have done a draft story for OhmyNews as a blog item. Hope to find recent stats on eBooks in Japan and Korea.

an interesting aspect is the claim that the iPhone / iPod is now an eReader because of downloads of Stanza

Should Apple do their own reader for ePub? they seem to think their fans only like music and video, not text.

And will the iPod generation damage their eyes looking at a backlit screen. Maybe they only read for short periods.

Any clues welcome

"I don't know whether to bin the phone, or just forget about PC Suite...
Probably, best to do both."

The first versions of PC Suite that I tried maddened me to the extent that I gave up on both it and Nokia for a few years. However, when I decided to give the E61 a try, I discovered that PC Suite had also come on in leaps and bounds, and had actually become fairly good.

Since then, it's had another major release (v7) and I've acquired an E65, and the two are mostly quite well behaved. (Sometimes the USB connection dies, but it usually comes back to life if I plug the cable into a different USB port - or reboot the PC.)

Perhaps you could try downloading PC Suite 7 from the Nokia website, instead of via its own updater program? Worth a go, anyhow!

PC Suite strangles reporter...

I'm really really fed up with Nokia's PC Suite. It works exactly when it feels like working.

Today, it offered to update itself... and it can't even do that!

OhmyNews have published my story about Online Information

I have included a quote from PCW and also tried to explain why the Mouse should be there next year.

Pterry not well...?

How reliable is "Discworld News" as a source of "horse's mouth" quotes from our favourite comic writer? It's their letter by Pterry which says Alzheimers has struck.

I'm really annoyed. I owe Pterry at least one beer...

couldnt find any pricing information on the site but came accross another bonded adsl solution from a company called xrio - and the spec sheet shows from 2 to 32 internet connection ports.

Sharedband - yes, its for real, as is the as yet unannounced involvement of BT Wholesale. The product is targetted at ISPs to sell to end users and BTw and BT in general could benefit from more ADSL circuits and/or more PSTN lines to carry them. BTw will also be a channel for selling the server software etc required at "the other end" of a Sharedband link.

Information Online is next week.
Do you plan to be there?

I have started a Google doc to become a story for OhmyNews. I hope to find an email address to invite you to edit etc.

Anyone else interested please request.
