Kindle For Textbooks

May 5th, 2009 3 comments

Most people I know, when I mention the new Kindle, are like “yeah, that’s cool but whatever.”  I suspect that is because they don’t read nearly as much as I do.  Seriously, I’m running out of space for my ever growing book collection and can’t wait to get a Kindle of my own.

Kindle 2: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device

This fall Amazon is going to be testing a new version of it’s Kindle on 6 university campuses.  No word on how much digital textbooks could potentially cost, but if I were a student I’d be jumping up and down with glee for the simple fact that I wouldn’t be toting around 50 pounds of books in my ratty punk rock Jansport anymore.

Some have commented that this would take a bite out of the thriving used book market.  It’s been about 8 years since I sold my last text book.  I bought it for $150 and sold it for $5.  If the digital versions are cheaper than the paper ones (which logically they should be), I think most people would give up the hassle of text book selling.  And the trees… could somebody please think about the trees!?!?

There aren’t many good things in life that are available for free (legitimately). Except for maybe 773 Free MP3s from Amazon. There are surprisingly a lot of good songs here. If you do like the artist, I would advise you to buy more from them to support the artist community.

Shower Light

Is your shower getting a little boring? This Shower Light adds some colorful fun to your daily routine. It shines light to the water head depending on the temperature. This can help you know when the water is too hot or too cold. Even better, the Shower Light does not require an additional power source. It uses an internal turbine that drives the LED lights.

Product Features

  • Lets you know when the water is hot! Fun for the entire family.
  • Never have a surprise cold shower again! Turn the water on and a flood of blue light shines down through the shower stream– cool blue and refreshing.
  • As the water heats up (89 degrees Fahrenheit / 32 degrees Celsius), the LED light changes to red, letting you know that the water is hot and ready.
  • Item measures 4-inches tall x 4-inches wide x 4 1/2-inches long.
  • You’ll never be surprised by a too-hot or too-cold shower again!
