Barnes and Noble needs to talk up this Nook Tablet feature! - Nook’s Advertising Is Corrected - NYTimes.com
Read the short piece; it’ll make you realize that the Kindle Fire is junk…
Second, I compared the Kindle Fire and the Nook Tablet. Side by side, identical movie playing in perfect sync from the same Netflix stream.
There’s not a shred of doubt: The Nook Tablet’s Netflix video looks a lot better.
Now, without the side-by-side comparison, you wouldn’t complain about the Fire’s video. But face-to-face with the Nook — forget it. The sharper, better detail of the Nook’s Netflix picture is immediately apparent. (You don’t see that clarity difference when the source material starts out at standard definition, like Hulu stuff.)
Did the Internet community peak at bookmarks? Asked in a different and perhaps more complete way: just as technologies like RSS and email in their purest forms are hard to beat even as technology marches forward, what better technology exists to keep track of information on the ever-expanding Internet than bookmarks? Taken a step further, what better way to share the bookmarked information than a site of your own? As such, I‘ve been reading, which is why I write now.
Working in and having a passion for libraries, I am struck by the fact that the way bookmarks work in the physical world is not directly analogous to bookmarks in the digital world. Bookmarks in the digital world are instead like dog-eared pages or highlighted passages; if you think of the Internet as a single tome, that is. In any case, anything that moves you to deface a book should probably be shared or become immortalized in some other way than just a reference for a future version of yourself.
