Forbes: Are Apps The Future of Book Publishing?

Probably. But they will be ephemeral, which will pose a problem for archivists - if not our wallets.

Anil Dash: Readability, Instapaper, the Network and the Price we Pay.

As usual, a great read from Anil. These apps are exactly why I stopped fooling around with ‘artsy’ sized fonts, and changed everything over to ‘Readability’ style text at least a year ago.

CNet: T-Mobile will cut 1,900 jobs by closing 7 call centers.

Alas, they’re all English-as-first-language call centers. When we recently switched our landline to mobile and upgraded our phones and plan, dealing with the overseas call centers was a terrible penance. Days, we spent clearing things up. Things only moved properly when we got a native English speaker on the line. I’m not being racist or prejudiced - it’s just a plain fact of what I experienced.

ReadWriteWeb: Are We On The Brink Of The Great Social Media Bubble?

Every company out there is saying ‘Like us on Facebook.’ But why? Why would I like a gasket company?” Signal to noise ratio on the social media is reaching saturation point for me. I’m fast losing interest, when I can’t control the flow efficiently. I want to block certain things, rout others into readable layouts. A new paradigm-busting interface needs to be developed.

CNet: Caution - Streaming video will chew through your 4G iPad data.

Verizon’s online tool calculates that one hour of 4G HD video streaming use — and nothing else — will cost you 2GB; so, 2.5 hours of streaming HD video will use up 5GB of 4G data.” Don’t do a streaming LOTR marathon when you’re roaming, then.

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.
