Kindle 2 Review after a few days of use

The Kindle 2 As just about everyone knows, the latest generation of Kindle was released this week. All hail our new robotic voiced overlord, the Kindle 2 (K2). Of course, I bought one.

She is fairly attractive overall...

Don’t get me wrong, some 2 year old’s can punch very decently for their age, but that’s nothing compared to a grown man, not to mention a professional boxer. Dell is a respectable company in the computer industry, well know for its customization (in fact that was...

Blu-Ray vs DVD

or: Did I really just pay $10 extra for that movie? In general the price difference between a Blu-Ray Disc and a DVD is $5-$15 (though currently on Amazon, Iron Man on Blu-Ray is $1 more than the normal DVD and actually costs less than the Special Edition DVD). The question most people ask though is, “is it worth it to pay an extra $x for the Blu-Ray version?” Often...
