Amazon Kindle Review: Purchase the Best Ebook Reader in the Market

Useful Links

Amazon Kindle, Wireless Reading Device
I was amazed by the picture clarity of this device, the first and foremost electronic gadget for reading electronic version of printed materials, the Amazon Kindle. Amazon, which started off as an online book seller in 1995 and soon enough branched out to be the biggest online retailer, always had a greater love for books. This amazing device is their effort to show how much they love the printed books. [Amazon Kindle was News but not anymore. Now, the news is that the information on the latest product, Amazon Kindle 2.0 has been leaked.]
Clarity of Amazon Kindle


I am a little skeptical of the image clarity I see for ebooks. They are never as good as printed books. But Kindle scores pretty well in this. I must say, the difference it has from a printed book page is quite unnoticeable. It looks like a printed page placed below a glass layer.

Kindle is completely wireless, requiring no cables, PC access, or synchronization. It uses the EVDO technology similar to cell phones, so that you never need to access a hotspot for getting online. This enables you to shop online at the Amazon store for any books or magazines you wish to read with this device. The material you purchase is directly delivered to your Kindle within a minute. Now, nearly 200,000 books, including current best sellers are available for purchase through Kindle.

Another great feature is that you can actually download a sample of the book with the first chapter before actually purchasing it.

The newspapers available include the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, etc. Also, there are magazines like Time, the Atlantic, and Forbes. Users from other countries can subscribe to their local newspapers and magazines as well. In their language.

There are more than 800 of top blogs on business, technology, entertainment, sports, politics, etc., available for subscription on Kindle. This includes, the Huffington Post, TechCrunch, etc.

The power saving of Kindle is remarkable. Without wireless, it can last for a week or more with one time charging of about 2 hours.

Now you need to read any other document through Kindle? Easy. Email the document to Kindle so that you can view it while you are traveling.

There is more to Kindle. To know its true power, get hold of one. Here is the Amazon Store links for Kindle and accessories:

What Is the Difference Between Hardcover and Paperback?

Today, my reader, Rahman contacted me with a doubt:

Dear Lenin, would you explain why there are two types of books: hardcover and paperback?
This is quite a simple affair and there are explanatory articles to be found at various places on the Net. Here is my addition.

Hardcover

A hardcover aka hardback is a book bound with thick protective cover, with usually a paper or leather dust jacket over the main cover. The aim of hardcover is protection and durability. These books are mainly for long-term use and collectors’ editions. Hardcover books last far longer than the corresponding paperbacks. They do not get damaged easily thus making them perfect for reference guides, great literary works, etc.

In addition, there is a difference in the type of paper used to print hardcover books. The paper used is long-lasting acid-free type. Acid-free paper has a pH value of 7 (neutral) which makes it highly durable. The papers are stitched and glued to the spine.

Hardbacks are prepared for commercial …

En Dash, Em Dash, and Hyphen

We have three types of dashes in use: The hyphen, En Dash, and the Em Dash. In this post, we will see how to use them all correctly.

Hyphen (-)

The hyphen is the minus key in Windows-based keyboards. This is a widely used punctuation mark. Hyphen should not be mistaken for a dash. Dash is different and has different function than a hyphen.

A hyphen is used to separate the words in a compound adjective, verb, or adverb. For instance:

The T-rex has a movement-based vision.
My blog is blogger-powered.
John’s idea was pooh-poohed.


The hyphen can be used generally for all kinds of wordbreaks.

En Dash (–)

En Dash gets its name from its length. It is one ‘N’ long (En is a typographical unit that is almost as wide as 'N'). En Dash is used to express a range of values or a distance:

People of age 55–80 are more prone to hypertension.
Delhi–Sidney flight was late by three hours.


In MS Word, you can put an En Dash either from the menu, clicking Insert->Symbol or by the key-combination, Ctrl + Num…

What Is the Meaning of the Word 'Ghajini'? Story and Trivia of Aamir Khan's New Film [Special]

[Special Entry]



Aamir Khan's latest film is titled a little weirdly for the taste of Hindi filmgoers. 'Ghajini': They have never heard of such a name, and such a word never existed in Hindi or in any other Indian language.

The name Ghajini is the name of the villain of the film. In Tamil version, the name of the villain was Laxman.

As a Tamil moviegoer, I have already watched Ghajini and know the story in full.

So, What Does the Title Mean?

In Tamil, the title of the film is inspired by the story of Mahmud of Ghazni, an ancient invader of India. This person was so persistent in invading India that he continued trying after several failures. In the film too, the protagonist is such persistent in finding out and killing the villain of the film, who had killed his girlfriend, Kalpana (played by Asin). Aamir's Character (named Sanjay Ramaswamy in Tamil), is a short-term amnesiac, who cannot remember anything more than fifteen minutes.

You may ask then how the Ghazni became…
