PaidContent: Amazon Has Sold Over Two Million Kindle Singles.

In that way, Kindle Singles allows Amazon to draw in authors who deem the program low-risk because it’s not in conflict with other publisher relationships they may have. Those authors may then stick around, especially if they believe that doing a full-length project with Amazon has the potential to be as lucrative as Kindle Singles have been for many of them.” I suspect Kindle Singles are poised to explode with additional and ancillary works from leading modern authors.

Macworld: Six ways to give an old iPad new life.

Hmmph. My iPad 1 is still perfectly suitable. The only thing I want that I’m locked out of is playing with Adobe’s new app. If more apps go iPad-2-or-newer, then I’ll think about retiring it.

IRA Analyst: Facebook ‘Jumps the Shark’ Interview with Michael Whalen.

The media seems to believe that the valuation of the company is based on the “personal data” of the 800 million + subscribers of Facebook. I disagree — the valuation of the company MUST be based on their ability to actually MAKE MONEY inside of the paradigm and the environment they invented. So far, I am not impressed.Via JY on FB.

Globe and Mail.CA: Indigo joins growing boycott of books published by Amazon.com.

Although Barnes & Noble claims to sell 300 million books a year, Amazon surpassed the traditional chain’s share of book, e-book and media sales in North America five years ago. The online retailer’s current annual revenue of almost $50-billion dwarfs the $7-billion in sales made by Barnes & Noble, which continues to lose money despite the collapse last year of the Borders chain, formerly its main competitor.

And B&N;is thinking of spinning off Nook? Good lord. I suppose I’m not surprised - the software’s dreadful.
