and Three authors, three hopes for the future of publishing: http://gigaom.com/2011/08/12/three-authors-three-hopes-for-the-future-of-publishing/

I just realized that after 14 months, all of the tablet contenders are finally available in terms of devices and platforms. Since I have (or have had) review devices from each, I thought to gather my thoughts and offer pros/cons of the available choices.

MJ, Kevin just did another piece on either Thursday or Friday on a simple $35 conversion of a Nook Color into an Android tablet. At about half the cost of an entry-level tablet, that might be exactly what you need.

For those of you who will see this more than once, my most humble apologies. For everyone else, I sort of wrote this book. That I self-published. Because Petey needs new dance shoes. (No, really. That's why.) So thank you in advance for even taking a peek to see if it might be your thing. No pressure, though.

I feel like you're pushing cocaine on me, with such an intense sales pitch :)

This post I did over a year ago generated - by a large measure - the most passionate response from a segment of readers I've ever received (gamers are, as you know, a passionate bunch). I slayed a sacred cow in Nintendo, seeing the writing on the wall for dedicated handheld gaming. I stand by it, and the news today that Nintendo is cutting the price of the 3DS by $80 shows I was right.

Wasn't it the best selling console last year? 11.5 million units?

Worth watching for the Noc Kupały video alone. Absolutely gorgeous. I love finding videos I wouldn't otherwise have seen.
