Holy crap. I just called my local Apple store and they have the updated MacBook Air in stock! I’m leaving work a little early to get there and buy one. Unfortunately, they said they couldn’t hold one for me, so I’ll have to hope that they still have at least one left by the time I get there (wish me luck!), though the salesperson I talked to said they haven’t sold any of them all day so far. Woo hoo!
I became hooked on ebooks shortly after I procured the electronic device that started my gadget obsession, a Palm V PDA. I found eReader.com, started purchasing books, and never looked back, buying new books in electronic format more often than not. I’d always had a Palm OS device since that fabulous Palm V, at least until the iPhone came along and I ditched my Treo 680.
Without a native ebook reader on the iPhone available from the start, I pined silently for ebooks, trying out an Amazon Kindle for a little while. Then the App Store opened.
If you follow me on Twitter, you probably already know that I have ordered another case for my iPhone. To be honest, I’m a bit surprised by this turn of events myself – I have been 100% satisfied with my current case, the Incase Slider. It perfectly suits how I use my iPhone and offers the protection I want. But the wily and talented leather devils at Vaja came up with a case similar to the Slider in functionality, the iVolution Dockable. It’s a fitted leather case that covers only the back and outer edges of the iPhone, and the bottom portion rotates backward to reveal the dock connector for charging or docking. I’ve had many Vaja cases over the years and I’ve always loved them. Look for my review of this case in about a month – it will take about 20 days to make and then I’ll take some time use it and break it in…
(I’d ad a link to the case or a picture of it on Vaja’s site, but everything there is Flash. Grrr. Fix your site, Vaja! You used to have HTML links for each product!)
My blog is meant to be more tech-oriented, but I’ve found a song that I’ve been playing in single repeat mode quite often lately, and thought anyone who is interested in electronic/ambient might like it as well. It’s a song called Four Letter Words by Pete Samples – clicking on this button will open iTunes –>
I have quite a few favorites in this genre – I’ve been meaning to create an iMix to share them…
