Interesting news to start the week...
The move is by far Google's biggest acquisition to date. Google will pay $40 a share, a 63 percent premium to Motorola's closing price on Friday.

This seems like a bad idea, actually. If I were Samsung or HTC, I'd start to get nervous if about whether I'd be getting the newest and best Android features at the same time as, say, Motorola...

No, I'm using Safari. Found the option I'm looking for, not sure if I missed it before or it got added, but there is a "remove" option now in the circles page so I'm good.

eBooks for the loss... Saw that the latest Dresden Files book is out, so went to order a copy. I can get the hardcover cheaper from Amazon than the Kindle edition! Sure, the real value in a book is the content, but really guys...

My tipping point in favor of Kindle was when I started re-reading the Baroque Cycle (3x 1000+ page books). I usually get books from the library; but I'd never finish any one of the three in the 3 weeks I'd be able to take it for (ok, 6w with the renewal). And, the thought trying to balance 5+ lbs of paper on one hand didn't appeal either. I've been happy with this use case ... big mother books easily carried in digital form.

Having said that, anything with maps, charts, pictures, etc; ie graphical detail; IMO Kindle won't cut it. I still intend to get most of the books I'll read from the LIbrary. My intended use for the Kindle is just the big monsters that take a while to read. Alas, Shelby Foote's Civil War series isn't available on Kindle....

I saw some of that game. It was a bit hard for me to see given the glare from the sun shining in the window next to the TV. The US women really dominated.
