A coworker came to me recently for advice about buying a tablet for his family, one that he and his wife could use and share with his toddler.

When http://geardiary.com/2012/09/06/nightmares-from-the-deep-the-cursed-heart-collectors-edition-hd-for-ipad-review/">I reviewed Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart Collector’s Edition on the iPad last year I praised the game, saying the “seamless integration of hidden object areas, mixed scenes and puzzles flows better than in most genre games”.

Amazon is not messing around this holiday season! As part of a “limited” promotion, the Kindle Fire HDX price is slashed to $179.99, and the Kindle Fire HD is down to $116! These are jaw-dropping prices on multimedia tablets with great content and app options!

Thanksgiving weekend is famous for a turkey-induced state of lethargy, manic shopping craziness, and most recently an onslaught of digital video game sales. To that end G5 Entertainment is having a huge sale all weekend long on some of their most popular games, and across all platforms! Personal favorites include the ‘Letters from Nowhere’ and ‘Special Enquiry Detail’ games.
When I reviewed Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings HD from G5 Entertainment last year, I praised the interesting story and great visuals, but not the huge download and rather formulaic proceedings after promising start.

It’s no secret that “Amazon” is a dirty word among independent booksellers. They’ve fought against carrying Amazon-published books, railed against Kindles, and fought Amazon’s no-internet-sales-tax stance. But Amazon really wants to win over the indie booksellers, so they’ve rolled out Amazon Source, an affiliate Kindle program for indie booksellers. Because when someone hates you, they’ll totally sell your competing
The FAA just announced the ability to use tablets during takeoff and landing. Yes, no more “please turn off all electronic devices and read the lousy in-flight magazine”.

I usually read books on a dedicated eBook reader, typically my Kindle Paperwhite. But lately I’ve done a fair amount of eBook reading via the Kindle app on my Lumia 928, and I’ve discovered an unusual bug. At random intervals the formatting will become wonky, cutting off sentences during page turns, and requiring an orientation swap to fix it.
It feels like after the initial excitement of eBook readers and eBooks taking off, the market had leveled off. There’s still book growth, but as tablets overtook dedicated readers, and Amazon settled happily into the number one spot, the improvements slowed precipitously. But now that Barnes and Noble is showing a new willingness to enter the market, it looks likeRead more
Nate over at The Digital Reader had a post about installing Google apps on the new Kindle Fire HDX. Since I use GMail and other Google stuff and have the new Kindle Fire HDX, I figured ‘why not’. Turns out there is a basic reason – not all services work correctly and there are no notifications.
As a result, my
