Interesting Ebook Tidbit

A comment from http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/reviews/2011/11/kindle-fire-vs-nook-tablet-which-one-should-you-buy.ars?comments=1#comment-22325811

I found my Nook Tablet's web browser can play Amazon Prime video just fine. Add in the fact that you don't even need to do anything special to side-load the Amazon App Store, it seems to be the more inclusive 7" tablet. The Kindle Android reader installs just fine...

(Note: I've found installing applications from the Amazon App Store on the Nooks require a microSDHC card to be installed.)

Anne McCaffrey has passed away

Anne McCaffrey passed away Monday November 21, 2011.

My condolences to her family, friends, and fans.

Pern was a world I longed to escape to when I was a young unhappy teenager.

You will be missed deeply Anne McCaffrey.
