The Amazon Kindle Comes To The UK

to-scale-turing-sm._V244132757_ It's finally here. The Amazon Kindle is now available to order through Amazon.com. According to the Amazon website it will use the 3G  network but without any mobile phone contracts. With access to 250, 000 books and newspapers such as New York Times and The Daily Mail this is looking extremely tempting even to the owner of a Sony E-Reader like myself. The device will cost $279 and can be bought here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0015T963C//ref=amb_link_84995193_2?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=gateway-center-column&pf_rd_r=054RKV5NH0EYVHGTZHTH&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=472917413&pf_rd_i=468294.

Is anyone thinking of getting it? Let me know if you are and why.

While the UK Government recognises and highlights the role this gas plays in causing lung cancer the EPA in the U.S. goes further adding numbers and additional facts such as : 1. 21,000 deaths a year are linked to Radon gas in the U.S.  2. It's the second biggest cause of lung cancer after smoking 3. Radon can enter the home through the water supply as well as the soil 4. There is a risk of stomach cancer from ingesting water containing Radon and lung cancer from inhaling the gas carried in the water.
To help protect and educate the population it's time the c…

XBox Live Dashboard Update Tomorrow!

I just logged into XBox Live for the first time in a while today and I've mail informing me that XBox live is going to be offline tomorrow for about 24 hours. This must be the big update that was announced at E3. The blades will soon be gone and we'll have the more modern interface. I liked the blades but I'm very excited about new interface. I'll post about the new look once i get a look at it hopefully on Tuesday.
