Initial thoughts? Responsive, clear display, anything?

It arrives tomorrow, I'll let you know. I got tired of reading on my iphone 4 and my laptop. I hate buying physical items like books, dvds and cds so I figured I should get a more long term solution for books.

the Kindle came in today. My only downside is the interface is a little clunky but you don't have to use it that often, just to get new books, or to switch books. You can just use your computer to push books to it too.

E-ink looks really good. It just looks like a professionally printed sheet is sitting on your device. the color is a little different. It's a grey background instead of white, black or sepia. the biggest change is no back light. It's just odd to hold an electronic device with a screen that emits no light. So if it's dark you'll have to turn on a light to read. That's at least a little old fashioned right?

Borders is finally closing down where I live and they got the big sale going on. I also wanted to score Stephenson's Diamond Age, Stevie King's Under the Dome, and one last issue of Bizarre but all that shit was already gone along with their cafeteria.


Pfft, apparently it was all bullshit so they could get rid of all the rare merchandise they weren't selling! the cafeteria's still gone though...

Just got this as a replacement for the "square's keyboard" that came as default on my developer workstation. I was a bit disappointed at the control in the split, as it's currently configured as "zoom" for pages (worthless, in my use case). the configuration app didn't allow for me to change it to scroll (I like the idea of keeping my hands in the home position as much as possible), but I discovered editing a Commands.xml file in C:\Program Files\Mirosoft Intellitype Pro\ folder allows me to map those commands. Hooray! Anyhow:



Also, I got this Logitech Performance MX mouse, for same workstation. One thing I noted as a really nice feature is that the scroll mouse has toggle-able "stops" on it (see button below mouse wheel in pic), and has a bit of mass, so the scroll wheel can act as a flywheel, of sorts, so a flick of the finger can scroll from page top to page bottom. the toggle returns the mouse wheel back to traditional "stops" mode, for switching weapons in gaming more easily, I gather:




And, if anyone's curious why I go for the little-loved, much hated split-key ergonomic keyboards: I had tendinitis at one time, and getting a split-key keyboard at the time, along with certain hand exercises, fixed my issue before too much damage to the carpal tunnel became permanent.

Taking advantage of Borders' demise today, I acquired another copy of Neuromancer. I seem to never get my copies returned to me after lending them out, but hey it's that good! Also I bought Brave New Worlds, a collection of dystopian stories by various authors, edited by John Joseph Adams. He also put together Wastelands Stories of the Apocalypse, which is a must have and by far my favorite compilation of short stories.
My original plan was to find Rewired, but after hunting for the better part of two hours I realized I wasn't going to find it. Sad

Well yeah it is a puzzle game, but you figure out realk quick it's also just another Japanese horror game with Freudian propaganda.
