Virtual Bubble Wrap Destruction

Sometimes we miss stupid things when we move into a more green lifestyle. Yes, one of the fast shipping viagra things I most miss is http://www.wowgraphicdesigns.com/levitra-pill the easily-reusable, but non-biodegradable, petro-chemical-based packing material, bubble wrap.

I don't miss using it...no...I miss destroying it. Turning it from a useful product into a sheet of pure trash. And while I know that popping bubble wrap is no good for anyone, that doesn't stop me from wanting to do it.

Which is why I'm so happy that I've found a way to artificially pop bubble wrap in the virtual world. Check it out, and don't forget to go into manic mode.

 

Sony's 3rd Generation EBook Reader


I'm a huge ebook dork. I've had Sony's first and visit our site cheapest prices for cialis second generation e-readers and loved them both. I started out with the Japan-only Librie, and after being initially frustrated with the DRM, eventually managed to crack the firmware and fell in love with the device.... Until the unit stopped booting one day.

And then came the PRS-500 reader, with its instant boot, better refresh rate, English operating system and DRMless firmware. The gigantic improvement has kept me reading from the viagra tablets for sale PRS-500 for over a year now. I've been through dozens of cialis generic india novels since purchasing it.

Now Sony is hitting us with yet another generation, so though I'm too happy with my 500 to upgrade, the 505 does have some useful qualities that will make it more appealing to buy viagra cheapest some. First, the contrast ratio is better, as good as a modern paper back. The whites are whiter, the blacks are blacker. Also, a doubling of intermediate grayscale shades (from four to eight) makes images and text even more crisp.

 

Amazon's eBook Reader Launch Imminent


I have an eBook reader, the Sony Reader, which I'll be doing a review of soon. I love it, for many reasons, but the worst part of the Sony Reader is that it is difficult to find the book you want to buy with their store, and then it's not as easy as it should be to get the book into the cialis canada illegal buy thing.

Well, a year ago, Amazon filed an eBook device called the Kindle with the FCC that would be very much like my Sony Reader (high-resolution, low-power, paperback-sized, etc) but has the added advantage of Amazon.com's entire inventory.

Even cooler, the device contains a wifi card that allows direct download to the book. Frikkin' awesome. So WHERE IS IT!

Well, Engadget just discovered that links have been showing up on Amazon.com for Kindle downloads. Currently, the links are dead ends, but this little slip seems would lead us to believe that Amazon.com is viagra prices on the cusp of releasing its Kindle to order generic cialis online the public.

Downloadable Everything

Bruce Sterling has been tracking the future as a SciFi author for years. Now, he's working on creating the future. He's postulating the possibility of a fully downloadable world. Raw materials would be manufactured into whatever you want (in this case, a chair) based on downloadable designs. You pay for the design, not the chair. When you're done, you give the overnight tramadol material back to the manufacturer, and they turn it into something else.

The process would eventually expand beyond simple items, like furniture, allowing appliances and electronics to be manufactured in a similar local, sustainable, not-being-shipped-from-China kind of webstuff.nl way. Of course, Sterling's "Spimes" are a ways off, but that doesn't mean we aren't hanging on every word.

Another interesting development in downloadableness...TreeHugger has started up it's first Niche blog, which seems to be largely paid for by Absolut Vodka. The subject...downloadable everything. It's worth a read, if you can get past the fact that every third word is "Absolut."

 

Karl Schroeder Follow Up


Last week we had the second in our series of EcoGeek science-fiction author interviews with Karl Schroeder. It was a great, thoughtful and wide-ranging interview, and if you haven't read it yet, you should go back and how to buy viagra take a look.

"I've released this book under a Creative Commons license, which means you can read it and distribute it freely, but not make derivative works or sell it. At the moment it's available in PDF, MS Reader and zipped HTML formats."
He is also looking to make it available in Palm reader and Mobipocket versions, so those are likely to be made available before long, too.

Remember, too, that our first EcoGeek science-fiction author interviewee, Tobias Buckell, also had the first third of his two novels available to read online, as well.
