Will the New E-Book Readers Replace Paper and Ink Media?

Will the New E-Book Readers Replace Paper and Ink Media?
By Cindy Rupp



E-book readers (or digital readers as they are also called) are all the rage today. It seems that every time we turn around another major player is releasing, or planning on releasing a new electronic reading device. At the present time Amazon's Kindle reader is the top choice among consumers.

Today, the average price of the e-book readers on the market is about $300. The average price had been closer to $400 until recently when Amazon dropped the Kindle price down some.
Many consumers, unfamiliar with e-book readers, refuse to spend that much money on a device that many have never even held before, let alone use. It is expected however, that sometime in 2010, the prices may drop again due to many more electronics companies promising to release new digital readers before year's end.



Electronics company Acer announced in January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas that it plans on releasing a family of readers before the end of this year. While Acer is not one of the world's favorite electronics manufacturers compared to say, Sony or Samsung, it does deserve recognition for making the mini laptop wildly popular. Its micro laptops did indeed sell like lemonade on a hot summer day and they are still doing well today. The interesting aspect of the Acer announcement is the fact that these devices will most certainly be priced well below that of the current average price, which will undoubtedly drive down the costs of all of the readers being sold-which is great news for the consumer!

Talk to anyone who owns a Kindle reader (or any brand name e-book reader for that matter) and they will surely sing the praises of reading electronically. The portability factor and the fact that you can load an entire personal library onto one, small and thin device is pretty impressive. They will also surely tell you that e-book readers are eco-friendly

The next question on the minds of many is this: Will e-book readers replace books, newspapers and magazines in the very near future? They are fun to use, are extremely practical and allow you to take all of your books with you, no matter where you go. Already a few colleges in the United States are testing e-book readers in their classrooms as a possible replacement for costly textbooks. Are we willing to give up the joys of opening a new book, smelling the fresh scent of ink on paper for an electronic gadget? Who knows? Maybe and maybe not.

One of the central flower cultivation which is widely used in wedding bouquets, and other ceremonial events, it is in the village of Poncokusumo, District Poncokusumo Malang.

According to one of the pioneers flower cultivation with the Latin name is Chrysanthemum indicum L, Andry, market demand at home and abroad is quite good. In fact, on certain days such as when the big day, the demand can be increased two-to three-fold. "For local consumption (Malang) are still lacking, especially for big cities like Jakarta, Bandung and Denpasar. So also overseas markets, like Singapore, is still lacking," said Andrew who is also Chairman of the Farmers Paguyupan Poncokusumo Apples. These flowers will be on sale to existing Florist in the area.



For now, Malang, indeed including the four major cities after Jakarta, Bandung, and Denpasar, which absorb a lot of cut flower products, especially the Chrysanthemum.

Pretty Easy

When the flowers began to appear, the light should be reduced to 8 hours a day for the flower color is perfect. "Cuacalah the most affect the growth of chrysanthemum petals. Suppose that in Malang, a decrease in the fog,''explained Andrew.

The fall in the fog, he added, could make the harvest due to less perfect retreat during the expansion. In addition, the fog and the weather is less conducive to the growth of fungus. "This is what I anticipated" he explained.

Compared with other areas, ways of planting chrysanthemums this Poncokusumo different from the others. Suppose in Batu. In the town of Batu, Chrysanthemum widely planted in dry (open garden) and can bloom more than once. Characteristics of the soil allows the plants can be more than one piece. While Chrysanthemum Poncokusumo, once cut. That is, once the planting, after harvest, the plants should be removed and replaced again with the crop / new seedlings. Planting until the harvest period ranges from three to four months. Thus, on average, farmers could harvest his garden chrysanthemum from three to four times a year.

2011 Champions League Winners Barcelona Celebration Pictures

Are you looking for pictures of Champions League winners Barcelona as they pick up the trophy and parade around Wembley? If so you can find them here.

Barcelona have beaten Manchester United by 3 goals to 1 at Wembley. Truth be told they could have won the match by a larger margin as they outclassed the Red Devils. It is hard to predict who could actually beat Barcelona as they are one of the best football teams around at the minute. They opened the scoring through Pedro, and it looked curtains at dawn. Manchester United pulled one back through Wayne Rooney, and at half time it was all square. But the second half was a different story with Barca giving Manchester United a masterclass. They scored twice; once through the ever impressive Messi, who was starting to have more and more of a say in the game. There was no way back for United, and Alex Ferguson even looked as if he had given up at 80 minutes.

We also recommend reviewing your docket to identify renewals and foreign filing deadlines that are coming due within the next year. Next, we recommend reviewing the portfolio to determine whether assignment data is correct. Lastly, we recommend you review your organization's portfolio to determine whether all marks are correctly labeled as a registered mark (®) or a common law mark (™). Patent Portfolio
With respect to patent portfolios, we recommend similar action items as discussed with respect to trademark portfolios. First, we recommend reviewing your docket for any outstanding office actions and identify any upcoming foreign filing deadlines. Decisions regarding responding to office actions and foreign filing will help plan the patent budget of your organization. Similarly, we recommend a review of upcoming maintenance fees to make decisions on whether patents should be maintained.
We also recommend reviewing assignment information recorded with the respective patent offices and updating such information as necessary.
Conclusion
The above-mentioned suggestions are meant as a starting point in a regular review of an IP portfolio. There are additional factors that should be considered and reviewed, including citation of prior art in pending patent applications, follow-up with decision makers regarding filing trademark and patent applications, and reviewing employment contracts to make sure confidentiality and IP assignment clauses are included therein.

Amazon Kindle – Great Dad’s Gift Idea
Nowadays everything goes online, from selling to buying, from trading to exchange. Amazon Kindle – Great Dad’s Gift Idea
Nowadays everything goes online, from selling to buying, from trading to exchange. In this fast moving world nobody have time to go to shop to buy books, as everything is available online. Seeing this United States prominent online bookseller Amazon.com launched an e-book reader which has an embedded system to read online books. This is how Amazon kindle was launched.
The best part of Amazon Kindle is it lets you buy media- books and periodicals without your pc. It has a high contrast display screen which does a great job of simulating a printed page. It also has a built in free wireless “whispernet” data network, built in keyboard, SD card expansion slot; compatible with both windows and MAC.

The Amazon Kindle is an e-book reader developed by Amazon.com subsidiary Lab126 which uses wireless connectivity to enable users to shop for, download, browse, and read e-books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, and other digital media.[1] The Kindle hardware devices use an E Ink electronic paper display that shows up to 16 shades of gray, minimizes power use and simulates reading on paper.

Several hardware devices support this platform, including a main "Kindle" line and a parallel "Kindle DX" line. The most recent Kindle device is the third incarnation of the main line, officially named "Kindle", but usually referred to as "Kindle 3".[2][3][4] Kindle 3 was released on August 27, 2010.[5] User reports indicate that the new display on the Kindle 3, with E Ink Pearl technology, is noticeably superior to that of prior generations.[original research?]

The Kindle DX line features larger screens than the main Kindle line and is marketed as more suitable for displaying newspaper and textbook content.[6] Amazon has also introduced Kindle software for use on various devices and platforms, including Microsoft Windows, iOS, BlackBerry, Mac OS X (at least 10.5 Leopard), Android and Windows Phone 7.[7]

Content for the Kindle can be purchased online and downloaded wirelessly in some countries, using either standard Wi-Fi or Amazon's 3G "Whispernet" network.[8] Whispernet is accessible without any monthly fee or wireless subscription,[9] although fees can be incurred for the delivery of periodicals and other content when roaming internationally beyond the customer's home country. Through a service called "Whispersync", customers can synchronize reading progress, bookmarks and other information across Kindle hardware devices and other mobile devices.[10][11]

UEFA Champions League Final Preview: Manchester United vs. Barcelona

Barcelona vc manchester united preview
By Alex Groberman
As good as Manchester United has been both this year and historically, the tear that Barcelona is on as of late is unprecedented. The biggest and brightest star for Manchester United remains the oft-controversial Wayne Rooney, who despite his ups and downs is a world class athlete capable of playing the game at any level. He, above all other players amongst the Manchester United ranks can go head to head with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez and come out on the other end unmoved.
Players like Javier Hernandez and Luis Antonio Valencia and Manchester United will also be key.
Still, the one thorn in Manchester United’s side all year has been a strangely inexplicable lack of consistency when playing away from home, outside of the comfort that Old Trafford provides. The team’s loss to Arsenal provided a perfect case in point example of the way this seemingly top of the line Manchester United club folds to good, but not better than them groups just because they are mildly out of their comfort zones.
Obviously Manchester United is an amazing strong club, but whether they have the guns to hang with opponents of this caliber still remains to be seen.

Promotional Clothing - Unique Mobile Advertising

Saturday, May 21, 2011

By Chris R Stevenson
The usual advertising standbys still work though, and the more adventurous businesses may use a care to drive around town with an ad plastered on the side. Using promotional clothing can get your business name out there while also creating a bit of a buzz surrounding your products-especially if your products are the clothing themselves.
It goes without saying that word of mouth is a very strong form of advertising. Referrals from other people bring foot traffic through the door like nothing else, and if friends tell their friends, the number of customers could increase dramatically. Promotional clothing is your built-in "hook." The design of the promotional t shirt is important. Hopefully your logo is attractive enough to catch someone's eye. Colour is also a key. While a simple t-shirt isn't indicative of the products you actually sell at your business, promotional clothing acts as both a moving billboard and word of mouth all wrapped up in one. In fact, think of a person wearing one of your promotional t shirts as a talking billboard, a human advertisement, if you will. If they enjoy shopping at your business, they'll be far more willing to wear a t shirt promoting it. Rhinestone transfers are a fabulous way of 'blinging up' apparel such as t shirts, jackets, caps and even wine coolers! Rhinestones transfers can be custom made for children's names, birthdays, bride and hen's nights, sporting groups, promotional products, business logos... the list is almost endless.
For great Custom Logos and further details on Promotional Clothing in fabulous iron on rhinestones, why not visit blingworks to make you stand out from the crowd.

What Is Mobile Advertising?

By Chris Carol
In the marketing world, mobile advertising is the way of the future. In 2009, the number of mobile phones in the world totaled over 4.6 billion. Currently the amount spent on mobile advertising is only around 1% of total advertising budgets. Media for mobile phones is quickly evolving. Mobile advertising has really taken off in countries like Spain, France and Japan. In Japan, 44% of mobile phone users click on ads they receive via their phones. There are several forms of mobile ads from web banners to SMS advertising to advertising within applications and games. You can get free instant access to the best mobile marketing newsletter.
According to Mashable, an online guide to social media and one of the top ten blogs worldwide, trends to watch in mobile advertising include:
- Innovations through SMS
- Advancements with rich forms of media like sound, gaming and video
- Mobile applications or mobile websites
- Geo-location as an advertising tool
- The role of mobile video
Of the available mobile phone models, 98% are capable of short message service, or text messaging. Text messaging is easy to use with a low-cost. Service providers offer a range of options from unlimited plans to plans that give up to 250 messages per month. Statistics show that in late 2008, the average American user sent 357 text messages per month. Advancements with Rich Media
With the number of smartphones saturating the market, rich media will begin to have a stronger foothold in the mobile advertising industry. Consumers prefer engaging, interactive ads, designed through rich media like gaming, sound and video. A drawback to this form of mobile advertising is that skills and time are necessary to create ads. Mobile Applications or Mobile Websites In Advertising
Advertisers have to decide if they are going to create a mobile application or a mobile website. Certain factors like operating systems, types of devices, and screen size all play a role in how they will present mobile marketing. Internet giant Google is taking the mobile web road while Apple is going the application route. In an April 2010 survey conducted by eROI, trends in mobile marketing, less than a third of marketers in the United States consider the mobile marketing experience important to their customers. Only 23% of the respondents reported having an optimized website for a mobile device. Advertising with Geo-Location
Geo-Location is one of the newer trends in mobile advertising. Some concerns with geo-location based mobile advertising centers around privacy issues. When companies customize ads, they use personal behavioral data, user profiles, and other data mind information. This consent will override many privacy issues. The Role of Mobile Video
Internet video consumption has experienced a huge growth with today's internet users. Because of this trend with internet video, marketers assume that mobile video will also experience a huge growth. Mobile advertising has definitely caught marketers attention and the amount spent on advertising is growing. Swedish analyst, Berg Insight predicts that by 2014, mobile marketing will represent 11.7% of the total digital advertising market.
Your business can flourish by getting some information on mobile advertising.

La Liga Preview: Almeria - Real Madrid
Both the Andalucians and los Blancos took a step towards the Copa del Rey semis in midweek, but now they face-off in the league...
Oltra wasn’t pleased that his side failed to turn their midweek domination into goals. Simply winning any game is a reason for cheer at the Estadio del Mediterraneo at present. Firmly anchored in the relegation zone, it would be astounding if they were to pick up maximum points at the weekend.

Win By Big Margins

It was business as usual for Real Madrid in the Cope del Rey against city rivals Atletico Madrid on Thursday evening. Jose Mourinho’s men may have fallen behind to an early Diego Forlan strike, but they controlled the vast majority of the game and deservedly take a 3-1 advantage into next week’s second leg.

Madrid’s lead is certainly not decisive, but los Blancos were given some valuable extra breathing space thanks to a goal from Mesut Oezil in the last minute of normal time.

“I always tell my players that it is important to win, but it is also paramount to win by big margins,” Mourinho explained. “I liked winning 3-1, but thought we could have tried a little harder and done more to score another goal.”

Famed during stints with Chelsea and Inter as a coach who likes to settle for 1-0 victories, Mourinho’s Madrid have perhaps been a little more pragmatic than their fans might appreciate. Still commanding a perfect record at home this season, los Merengues’ form away from the Bernabeu has been a little more vulnerable.

First Impressions: RIM BlackBerry PlayBook Not Ready For Prime Time

First Impressions: RIM BlackBerry PlayBook Not Ready For Prime Time
By Vernon Chan

Research in Motion's (RIM) PlayBook promises so much. Sexiness, speed, chic. As witnessed during a recent media preview, the PlayBook certainly entices, at least hardware-wise. Hardware - Solid effort, Impressive Specs
Powered by a dual-core 1Ghz processor with a generous 1GB RAM, the PlayBook boasts symmetrical multi-processing, something not seen in other tablets thus far. The highly-responsive 7" multi-touch capacitative display supports 1024 x 600 screen resolution. Colours are bright and text crisp. Connectivity-wise, the PlayBook comes with WIFI (a/b/g/n) and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR with LTE/WIMAX/HSPA options over various models. The PlayBook offers 'best-in-class' media and RIM makes no secret about this - dual cameras supporting still and video capture - 5MP HD at the rear and class-leading 3MP HD front-facing. Nice. May be slightly optimistic with its multitasking prowess. Design & Aesthetics - Sexy Chic
At first glance, the PlayBook looks and feels smaller than expected. Visually it looks smaller than a Samsung Galaxy Tab and HTC Flyer. Overall, the build quality is excellent.

Performance - A Whole Lotta "Hmmmm..."Rim Blackberry Apps
While the PlayBook excels in every possible way in terms of hardware, the software side of things and how that translates to overall real world experience leaves much to be desired. QNX, the OS that powers the PlayBook is a robust, UNIX-like realtime operating system for embedded systems. Its true multitasking ability is pretty amazing to behold. Performance is responsive and snappy. Without a hardware button for 'Home' or 'Back' which we're accustomed to, users merely need to swipe the bezel to exit an application, or side swipe to bring up a dashboard of running applications. Pretty nifty though a slight learning curve for the unfamiliar. The cameras work well and captures are pretty good. Video playback is impressive, too. The WebKit-powered browser works well.

While RIM is quick to admit that the PlayBook software is still 'pre-release', some glaring exclusions and myriad errors left some frustrated. I encountered numerous errors while attempting to play media - both videos and audio on one of the test devices. The lack of a dedicated email, calendaring and contacts clients is a surprising exclusion. The only way to manage this is via BlackBerry Bridge - the app suite that allows your Bluetooth-tethered BlackBerry device to manage your Messages, Calendar, and BBM. No luck if you're NOT a BlackBerry phone user. Hmmmm.Rim Blackberry Apps

I fired up the native game Need For Speed Underground. Boo. Different test devices with different levels of experience. Hmmmm.Rim Blackberry Apps

Whilst Android and iOS enjoy tens of thousands of apps, BlackBerry has a mere few hundred. Yes, BlackBerry will support Android apps via a runtime environment and this satisfies certain camps, but strategy remains muddied and execution untested. Hmmmm...

Lookin' At the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G

Lookin' At the RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G
By John Parks


The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 offered by Verizon is an affordable gorgeous device for email, text messaging, and applications. Also on the front of the Curve 3G is a precise optical trackpad for navigating the display. On the right side, you'll find a camera button, and two buttons for volume. The resolution of the 2.4" display screen of the Curve 3G is only 320x240. When you consider that the current generation of smart-phones carries display resolutions in the 480x360 range, the resolution of the Curve 3G may seem a bit low. Pictures look OK when comparing the Curve 3G display to those higher resolution smart phones, which, admittedly, do cost around $150. Text on the Curve 3G may appear a bit fuzzy.
One drawback for the Curve 3G is that it now comes with only the BlackBerry OS 5 instead of the OS 6. Verizon has announced that the OS 6 will be available "soon" for the Curve 3G. The model previous to the Curve 3G, the Curve 8530, had a 528-MHz processor and 256 MB of RAM; the Curve 3G has a much faster 624-MHz processor and 512 MB of RAM, all of which means better performance for the Curve 3G. You switch between apps appreciably faster, typing messages is easier and quicker, and navigation is very responsive. One negative, though, is the Web browser on the Curve 3G -- it feels a bit sluggish.
Import of settings, phone numbers, and email contacts from Gmail is no problem at all. You can set up and use your BlackBerry email account plus ten other Web email accounts on the Curve 3G. Text messaging is supported for BlackBerry Messenger, AIM, Windows Live, Google Talk, and Yahoo.

Smartphone Application Development Outlook

By Brent Gairy


Mobile usage and more specifically smartphone usage, represents a unique opportunity for application developers and brand owners alike to generate new revenue and brand awareness. Unlike open platforms such as the Internet, smartphones are separated by a range of operating systems, handsets and carrier support.
Market share Trends
The mobile operating systems to target are Apple's iPhone OS 3.0, RIM's Blackberry 4.6+ and Google's Android. These are the largest growing mobile OS platforms; others such as Symbian and Windows Mobile are experiencing slower growth in market share and also suffer from platform "fragmentation", further lowering their effective market share. Of all the competing operating systems, only the iPhone/iPod Touch allows for near universal application development.
The Risk of Fragmentation
There is significant platform fragmentation with non Apple devices, notably the Blackberry OS, with a large roster of legacy devices such as the blackberry 8100, 8700 and 8800 families. Each manufacturer can build a totally unique Android phone running on a variety of OS versions, ranging from Android 1.5, 1.6, 2.0, 2.0.1,and 2.1.
The iPhone line can be drawn into three main groupings; the original iPhone, the iPod Touch and the iPhone 3GS. The iPod Touch does not have a camera, so any app that needs a camera will not function. The iphone 3GS is the newest model and is becoming the baseline model for app developers, especially those utilizing live video and location based services.
When developing native apps for the Blackberry, the largest pool of compatible devices are the Blackberry Curve 8300, 8900 and the 8500 series, followed by the Bold 9000, Bold 9700 and the Blackberry Tour.
HTC's customized Android devices are also popular; these include the HTC Hero and the Verizon Droid Eris.
App development tools
Native iPhone apps are built with Apple's Objective C language using Xcode and then submitted to the "App Store" for distribution to the general public. There are several third party tools that allow development with other languages such as Actionscipt (Flash CS5), Lua, and Javascript. Other features such as GPS location and the camera may be limited until these tools mature.
Blackberry apps can be built with the Blackberry JDE plug-in for Eclipse using the Java language. Applications can also be built with the Javascript based Phonegap, which may lower the level of developer experience needed to begin development. Blackberry apps can be sold via the official app store known as Blackberry App World or they can be sold through 3rd party providers such as Mobihand.com. Android is also based on Java, and it too uses Eclipse IDE with the Android Development Tools plugin. There is no oversight by Google on the types of apps that can be built for Android, Google, however does reserve the right to remove malicious apps.

Types of apps to create

On the iPhone, the majority of apps currently available are games; they can range from Adobe Flash games ported with minimal functionality to full 3d games using Unity 3d. Outside of games, many iPhone apps are mobile extensions of websites utilizing open API's. The majority of non gaming apps are complex widgets that communicate with 3rd party API's and follow Apple interface guidelines reducing the need for graphic artists.Android roughly parallels the iphone in with games being the most popular downloads followed by general interest apps. Blackberry apps are primarily business applications such as Poynt, with fewer games on the platform compared to Apple and Google's offerings.

Currently, web developers have been on the sidelines waiting for tools to mature and leverage their web based skills.Blackberry OS 8100


The Champions League Final 2011: Manchester United V Barcelona, Wembley Stadium, 28th May 2011


By Ian Worthington

On May 28th 2011 the World's 'best' team, Barcelona, travel to Wembley Stadium in London to take on the power of Manchester United. After destroying Real Madrid and Schalke in their semi-finals, these two giants of World football will do battle for the premier prize in club football. On display will be some of the planet's most talented players in Xavi, Iniesta, Pique, Villa, Bojan, Mascherano, Alves, Rooney, Vidic, Ferdinand, Hernandez, Berbatov, Van der Saar, Evra, and, of course, the very best of all in the Argentinean genius Lionel Messi.
Lionel Messi has scored 52 goals so far this season in all competitions - that, by anyone's standards is amazing and will be giving Alex Ferguson and his players countless sleepless nights.
Manchester United's form has gathered pace as the season has progressed. After a slow start, with a number of draws against lower table sides, they have established themselves at the summit of the Premier League table going into the remaining 3 games of the season. They face a massive test against title rivals Chelsea on Sunday 08th May at Old Trafford. Should they win or draw that match they will be highly likely to win the Premier League title, which would see them surpass Liverpool's record for the most league titles.
In Wayne Rooney and Hernandez United have two strikers in red hot form. It will be interesting to see how Alex Ferguson addresses Barcelona's midfield masters in the final. Take part in football skill and fitness challenges against players from all over the World

Added to that is Barcelona proving to be such a hit as a city break destination - it is therefore little wonder that so many visitors reserve Barcelona football tickets in advance. Tickets are available from the official website, although the seats are often spread about and not next to each other. However, official ticket agents offer tickets at a higher price and can supply continuous blocks of tickets for most matches.

While Laporta had promised to bring David Beckham to the club, the English player had other ideas and signed with Barcelona's arch-rival instead - Real Madrid. In place of Beckham, Laporta's team of directors brought in Ronaldinho, who stunned fans with his exciting and enthusiastic style of play. Other notable players of the period included Iniesta, Deco and Samuel Eto'o, while Victor Valdes and Carles Puyol remain popular local lads.
