Is the Kindle DX the future of Newspaper?


kindle-dx

Amazon has laid a second Kindle giant this time: the
Kindle DX.

This device is basically a journal / e-book. To view content you must first download it.

The specificity of DX is its size: a
screen of 9.7 inches.
You can watch the screen in the direction vertcal or horizontal, the image adjusts automatically.

It costs 100 dollars more than the
Kindle 2
(standard format).

Is the future of paper journals (in full agony) will increase by this gadget? Quite possible but I think at first that it will interest primarily those who already love to read books or newspapers classic.

Because take a passionate surfer, a geek or a blogger: these three there are already spending much time in front of a computer screen. Why buy if the Kindle is about getting out of a screen to be back in another.

I see its usefulness especially for the holidays, then it can be nice. And if in addition there was a function to the Google Reader to save favorite articles, there would be the dream, I could do at night in my bed
 ';-) '

Buy the Amazon Kindle
France,
Canada
or
USA
(when available).


Buy Kindle 2 on Amazon.com


kindle-2

Amazon just released its new Baby Kindle, The Kindle 2.

Better navigation on screen (more accurate) than in first Kindle.

This gadget allows you to download Books, Newspapers and Magazines and read them wherever you are.

Kindle 2 is already available in pre-order on Amazon.com for 359 dollars (still not available on Amazon.ca and amazon.fr).

Specs: 1/3 of an inch, as thin as a magazine, 10.2 ounces, lighter than a typical paperback, 3G wireless, 25% longer battery life, holds over 1,500 books among 230,000 books plus U.S. and international newspapers, magazines, and blogs available.

Rinspeed sQuba: James Bond’s Car


Rinspeed sQuba is the perfect James Bond’s Car. And she is ecologic.

Genius Frank Rinderknecht just created a superb electric Roadster that is the first world submersible car.

Squba has 3.79 m long, 1.94 m width and 1.12 m tall, it weights 920 kg and looks like the Lotus Elise. It goes from 0 to à 80 km/h in 7.1 seconds and max speed is 120 km/h.

sQuba uses lithium-ion batteries.

sQuba can go underwater with two back propellers and two lateral Seabob jet drives, responsible for keeping the car stable. It can goes under a maximum depth of 10 m and speed is 6 km/h above the water and 3 km/h under.

Passengers use oxygen cylinders. “If the car was a hardtop, all the cabin would have to be really strong to cope with the water pressure. This would add lots of extra weight to the car and it would move very slowly out of the water as well”.

Here is the Rinspeed sQuba video and some pictures:
