Do Readers Absorb Less On Kindles Than On Paper? Not Necessarily

Jabes Something in this? (105 comments)

I think there is something in this. I used to read paper books prolifically, but through change in lifestyle (kids, work pressures) didn't get round to it so much. The kindle has allowed me to read more again because I can take it everywhere with me. But I certainly get much more confused about which book was which and have less association with who the author was as the whole book purchase decision making is so much quicker.

This means I lose track of which books in a particular series I've read, and find myself wondering if I've read a particular title or not

BUT, I am reading more again and enjoying it when I do. So does it really matter?

Ask Slashdot: Best Way To Take Notes In the Modern Classroom?

Jabes Livescribe (364 comments)

I find the livescribe system brilliant. It is pen and paper, but it records audio and you can transfer your scribblings to computer. The audio and your writing are synced up so you can touch on any part of your writing either on the paper or on the computer and jump to the audio at the time you wrote it.

How To Supplement Election Coverage?

Jabes Best listening in UK? (241 comments)

For some reason I am REALLY engergised by these US elections. I am UK resident and full time worker.

I'd like to listen to as much as I can without compromising too much of my work week

Which UK radio can I listen to at which times are going to keep me informed? And what UK time can I expect to keep my eyes opened for key results?
