We've also built another clock that is already available and should please Slashdot fans as it shows the time as a 32-bit binary representation of Unix Epoch Time.
No period between the sentences... that's what is being [sic]'d out.
To your answers to #1 and 2... I could bring the latest Stephen King 1000+ page hard cover novel, which weighs significantly more than a Kindle, and read it through the whole safety briefing, take off, climb to 10,000 ft, yet if I wanted to do the same with a Kindle, I'd be branded a terrorist.
Why not go directly to his website (when it's not slashdotted, of course), click on "Songs" at the top, and have a listen, for free, to his whole catalog (minus a few songs he wrote for other people). No need to pirate when he gives it away for free.
Perhaps you've missed "I Crush Everything"? That's the only song I know of about giant squids. From any artist.
TMBG's Apollo 18 had a giant squid on the cover, but no songs about one.
That's why we should get rid of income tax entirely, and move to a consumption tax. The forklift driver gets to take home ALL of his pay, doesn't have to shuffle it into stock options, and only pays taxes when he buys goods above the povertly level. Same thing with the CEO making $1MM. He only gets taxed when he spends that million dollars at the retail level, buying his new jet. If he invests it all, it isn't touched by the taxman until he pulls it out to spend.
Reply: Nope. Y'umpto?
You know who else liked invoking laws?
First off, it's "Grammar Nazis". Sorry.
Second off, you missed the word "Pay" in the headline.
Who is adding something? Google.
What are they adding? Pay.
Why are they adding pay? To cover a tax.
What tax? A tax for being gay.
As long as you read all the words, you can break it down to make sense of it.

Maybe you should verify before you blame... but you're an anonymous coward, so how much can I really expect?
Professional troll, is my guess.
Yup, I don't remember a single long episode arc in Enterprise...
Oh wait, the entire bloody third season!!
(which all sucked, btw) The 4th season two-parters were much better.
Who are you, and what have you done with the real geekoid? This is the worst typing I've ever seen from you here... are you typing under duress? is the BSA at your company right now? Do we need to call 911 on your behalf?
Points 2 and 3 are valid, and yes, hilighting and navigating are slower than a paper book. Point one, however, you're way off base about. "Locations" in Kindle books are absolute, down to the word. It doesn't matter what text size you're looking at, location 500 will be the same on each device. So rather than Page 20, the Kindle-enabled teacher would say navigate to location 232... the students would hit menu, go to location, and type 232... just as fast, if not faster, than trying to flip to a new page in a textbook.
And the new DX is a native pdf reader, where each page is a separate item. If the book is in pdf format, the teacher can say "Go to page 20" and it will be meaningful. The screenshots on amazon.com show page numbers at the bottom of the screen where it describes pdf reading.
Hope that helps.

True, but have any Europeans died from it? Forgetting for the moment that the GP was a troll, he might actually be on to something. Create a disease that anyone can catch and then show symptoms and spread, but only kills one particular population set. It would rapidly spread globally, infecting nearly everyone, but only wipe out one population...
