At the 2008 Consumer Electronics show, we got ahold of the Kindle: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device, for a quick overview on G4 TV. It is much lighter and thinner than I expected and while some people miss the fact that it has no power-hungry WiFi, I like that it is always connected over a cellular network (in the USA only) for e-books and RSS feeds. It even has capabilities to get e-copies of the NYT and WSJ!

Here are Olivia Munn and the Gadget Guy going over the Kindle and figuring out how she would use it in her home...

Fake Steve Jobs - Daniel Lyons @ Web2.0

It looks as if all of my stories covering the O'Reilly Web 2.0 conference have been posted to the PC Magazine world... Here's a recap:

Marc Andreessen talks about what it was like in the early days of creating the browser at the University of Illinois then Netscape and what he is currently doing with the white label social networking site Ning.,1759,2288828,00.asp

Gear Log picked my story on Dash, the in-car GPS with WiFi and cellular wide area networking connectivity. It's got the whole "crowdsourcing" automatic web2.0 thing figured out!

Finally, my buddy David Spark did a little Q&A with yours truly and I pontificate on what the future of social networking will become. Hint, it is already a time-waster, but does not let you play scrabulous, but spamulous...

P.S. I need a hair cut.
