Amazon releases Kindle iPhone application and ebook readers rejoice!

Amazon releases Kindle iPhone application and ebook readers rejoice!

I was reading my Twitter feed and stumbled upon a post by Rene announcing the new Kindle for iPhone application that you can now download for free (iTunes link) from the Apple App Store. Folks, this is BIG news for the ebook industry and came MUCH faster than I ever anticipated given that the Amazon Kindle 2 (check out my review) just started shipping last week. My Kindle 1 is now up for sale on ebay and it looks like my iPhone will now be a regular part of my gear. With the Kindle 2 and Whispersync technology the iPhone and Kindle 2 will make a perfect pair.

What Waterfield Designs SleeveCases fit the Fujitsu U810 and Celio REDFLY?

What Waterfield Designs SleeveCases fit the Fujitsu U810 and Celio REDFLY?

I bought a Fujitsu U810 UMPC a couple of months ago and while the device closes like a laptop to protect the display I wanted a case to protect the entire device. I searched online and the only case I found that was really made for the Fujitsu U810 was the Fujitsu leather portfolio case, but I was really just interested in a slip case design and didn't think I wanted the Fujitsu model. I have a Waterfield Designs cargo bag that I have been using for a couple of years and it looks as good as the first day it arrived. I contacted Waterfield Designs directly since I could not find a case size for the U810 on their site. I thought the Asus EeePC case looked about the closest in size, but my contact at Waterfield Designs recommended taking a look at the Amazon Kindle slip case. I purchased the Amazon Kindle one and after it arrived I ordered the Asus EeePC one so I could compare them directly and it turns out that I will be keeping both cases. Read my review to find out why.
