As I mentioned a few weeks ago, while we were all listening to Peter Gabriel, I ordered the new $79 Kindle model.

Yesterday, brown trucks across the country began delivering the streamlined Kindle 2 to delighted readers and gadget freaks. I got my hands on one late yesterday and have had some time to play with it. As an owner of the previous Kindle, I had a number of immediate impressions. First off, let me say that the packaging is beautiful as these unboxing photos at Engadget reveal.… Read more
I have written another guest post for MacSparky. It is a review of a task management app called ActionGear. If you are turned off by the complex feature set of Things or OmniFocus, then ActionGear might work for you.
