Late Friday Nite Tidbits

It's late Friday night and I don't have the gumption for a long post, so instead I'll just plop several little tidbits for you to enjoy.

First, PalmAddict's Sammual McLoughlin has been featured in Manchester Online, a local Manchester newspaper, discussing his New York style loft he's put together in Manchester. It was great to read a little about Sammy that's not Palm-oriented; I think this helps me gain a richer view of him as a person, which is very cool.

Looks like bad news for e-books from the Frankfurt book fair... apparently some research reveals that people still prefer the dead tree versions of books. I admit there is something nice about a traditional book, but I also do love e-books as well. I guess for me it's a toss up -- I like both. However for the mainstream, it might be more of a long-term option, once the reading experience is closer to paper and cheaper than needing a Palm or specialized e-book reader.

Lastly, if you happen to be a British Airways traveller like me, then this BA Palm electronic timetable application for their schedules might be a great little tool. The app is separated from the actual timetable data, so you can download the app once and from then on, just get the data. Thanks to Shaun at PDANews24 for the heads up!

Ok, I'm outa here. Have a nice weekend all and we'll see you next week. :-)
