http://techcrunch.com – After this past week’s Apple event, one thing stood out to me above all others. And just to make sure, I watched the event again. Same result.

Is a tablet right for me?view story

http://www.mobileread.com – I have a Kindle Keyboard which I use every day, including those times when I wait at a Starbucks, Panera or McDonalds for my wife to shop.
