This is absolutely true. Admittedly I may be a bit biased but the reading experience on dedicated readers is far better than tablets for immersive reading.
With diversions like e-mail, Twitter, YouTube and games a few taps away, the book-reading experience on a tablet is more like a 21st-century cacophony than a traditional solitary activity.

Good article about what went on behind the scenes during the creation of The Verge. Hope the attention to presentation (news technology?) branches out beyond tech-focused news. The "story stream" feature, for instance, is elegantly presented and incredibly powerful - could see it being especially useful in coverage of the 2012 elections, for example.

So I picked up the Steve Jobs bio. Not entirely sure why since 90% of it has seemingly been posted online already as "excerpts"...

Yeah, that would have been good. We should grab drinks soon though.

“If Samsung truly believed that Google’s takeover of Motorola Mobility was going to be helpful to the entire Android eco-system at large, it would have waited until that deal was closed before concluding the license agreement with Microsoft.

Samsung knows it can’t rely on Google. We’ve decided to address Android IP issues on our own.’’ - Samsung Officials

Yikes. This is going to be interesting to watch unfold.

Hey, don't shoot the messenger! I didn't write the article or make the remarks!

That said, I also didn't care much for Android when I played around with it - it felt really unpolished. Probably ranks above Blackberry but below Windows Phone 7, iPhone and (the now deceased) Palm WebOS for me.

2011 was not a good year to be a dictator.

Sad day for tech. Been reading a bunch of obits over the last few hours. Not helping my productivity (not like it's a good day for pitching anyways) but it's hard to avoid them. Enjoyed BLam's (http://bit.ly/qLl57B), Levy's (http://bit.ly/qbIEBF) and Mossberg's (http://dthin.gs/p7tFMy) quite a bit.

One of the recurring themes is the idea of "who's next?" which is something I've been thinking about a bunch about over the past few months (albeit indirectly). Tech has changed a great deal since Apple was founded in Steve's garage. The tech world is so platform and app centric now that even if you were to create a stunning OS you still face the considerable hurdle of winning over consumers without developers (or vice-versa). Even companies with a history like Palm couldn't pull it off. What chance would three kids in a garage have?

Maybe I'm wrong.

I hope I am.

Do you know who's next?
I met Steve Jobs while I worked at Gizmodo. He was always a gentleman. Steve liked me and he liked Gizmodo. And I liked him back. Some of my friends who I use

After 2 exhausting weeks of pretending to like baseball I bet Tampa's fans are looking forward to the 50 week break.
