It’s been over three months that I’ve been living with an Amazon Kindle. For those of you contemplating investing in an Amazon Kindle, this review would come in mighty handy. Amazon was one who practically created a market for eBook readers when they launched Kindle, very successfully way back in 2007. The first model was clunky but the technology was path breaking. The success of Kindle spawned an entire generation of rival products. In keeping with competition, the Kindle2 is a far improved product.

If you are looking to buy the latest iPhone 4 in India through the official channels, you might have to wait until Diwali. An Airtel executive recently confirmed to Reuters that the company is planning to launch iPhone 4 in India but around the September or October timeframe. There’s no mention of price but it will obviously cost you more than a mid-range laptop.
But prior to owing your iphone you definitely need to know the nuance of it. Here is the complete review of iPhone 4 by Mr Kiruba Shankar, who’s spearheaded several key events such as Cerebrate, Proto.in, TEDxChennai, Facebook Developer Garage, Chennai:
According to Apple, iPhone 4 will be more powerful, easier to use and more indispensable than ever. iPhone 4 comes with a new design, screen, processor, and also a new operating system (OS).
Face time: Through iPhone 4, video calling will become much easier. The Retina display on iPhone 4 is the sharpest, most vibrant, highest-resolution phone screen ever, with four times the pixel count of previous iPhone models. This technology makes the text amazingly crisp and images stunningly sharp. No wonder, Steve Jobs joked in the keynote, “Once you go Retina Display, you can’t go back.” In iPhone 4, you can multitask by running your own apps and this will not affect the performance of other apps or drain batteries. Great news for people who are mad about video recording, one of the key features of the camera is the ability to shoot HD (720p) video.
It has taken less than a year for Lufthansa’s popular Facebook channel to reach 100,000 fans. Although the airline launched its profile on the social networking platform only last December, the 100,000th user pressed the “Like” button at www.facebook.com/lufthansa last weekend to activate the ”Lufthansa Slot Machine“ in the hopes of winning an attractive prize. Facebook fans still have until 18 October to try their luck for a chance to win one of ten “jackpot” prizes of 100,000 Miles & More award miles — or other prizes including Rimowa suitcases or iPod nanos.
