E-Books On a $20 Cell Phone

Bohnanza Re:Seriously? (116 comments)

Reading e-books two or three lines at a time on a 3.2-inche screen would turn anyone off of reading

I prefer to read on my phone over any other format. I can hold it and turn pages with one hand, and since only one paragraph fits on a page, I never lose my place even if I am distracted. I read MUCH faster on my phone than when reading from a paper book.

My current phone is bigger, but I read many books on my Iphone 3, with a screen size of only 3.5 inches, so I think the experience would be similar with these small phones.

And I am not alone, e-reader apps have always been among the most popular.

I have recently become a heavy user of Songza, and one of the best features is the lack of ad breaks. I expect this to change pretty soon.

60% of Americans Unaware of Looming Incandescent Bulb Phase Out

Bohnanza Wish they'd phased them out in reverse (944 comments)

I can buy fluorescents and LEDs to replace 40 and 60 watt bulbs, but there is still no good replacement for the 100 watt bulb. The "100 watt equivalent" fluorescents are nowhere near as bright, and are so large that they don't properly fit in some fixtures.

Spinning Black Hole's Edge Rotates At Nearly the Speed of Light

Bohnanza Rotation speed limiting density? (227 comments)

TFA mentions a fact that I'd read about before, that the black hole's rate of rotation increases as it collapses due to the conservation of momentum. But since no matter can actually mover faster than the speed of light, is the collapse limited by this maximum rotation rate? Would the black hole cease collapsing when the rotation rate neared the speed of light?

Microsoft Blames PC Makers For Windows Failure

Bohnanza It's not just Windows "8" (913 comments)

"Windows" itself is rapidly becoming meaningless. In a decade or less MS operating systems will be used mainly by businesses and hobbyists. Touchpads and "The Cloud" are much more appealing to regular consumers who are really only interested in using the internet. And there is really no reason to use the MS offerings for these purposes.
