E-books made Easy with IREX!

I saw this link for a contest about the IREX e-book reader. It compares itself to the Kindle or the Sony ereader. Boy I would love to try it out. I love reading in bed but the lighting leaves alot to be desired. I would love a reader that can be read in bed without bothering anyone. The most important feature in an ereader for me is ability to see it at night to read in bed and ability to get ebooks from different sources (sorry thats two). This sounds like a great reader especially now that all Barnes & Noble ebooks can be used on it. Yahoo. At the website posted below the interview from Kevin Hamilton of IREX discussing the reader is there it is great. WOW competition in the ebook reader market sure can only help us consumers get the best choice for our individual lifestyles. I have been longing for an ebook reader for a long time, maybe soon I will jump into the market after some research to see which one is the best fit for me. Right now a contest is going on at so go check it out and make your own blog entry and enter the link at Mr. Linky for a chance. Its dated September 14, 2009 its down the page toward the bottom. Good luck to all.

Fiber is great for all!

Now I am not talking about the fiber you eat or the fiber you wear sure those are great for all of us but what about fiber technology! I wish fiber technology was available in all areas especially in my area. It is so much faster than standard cable or DSL. The telecom companies should get on-board with this technology because our population is growing and it seems so many people feel the need for instant information and access so this technology is needed to allow the ability to carry so much infomation quickly. If more companies got into this the cost would go down and that makes it easier for consumers in the long run. There are a few companies out there with this technology (Verizon FiOS and AT&T U-Verse) however it isn't available in most areas.

I currently have the lowest end high-speed DSL, but would sure love to get the faster fiber option. My area was one of the last around here to get the DSL service so I expect it will be one of the last areas to get the fiber technology.
