eBook Readers and Oh, Yeah, Passion...
Passionate people burn up faster.
That's why when it comes to cooking, using the slow and consistent glow of a blue flame is better at getting the job done than a super nova heated white fire.
It's been 24 days since I last wrote here and my, my, a lot has happened really. I've got a gazillion pictures and hours of videos to edit about what has been happening over at resort ville, but found myself terribly conflicted.
Fate, destiny, calling are some of the most overrated words that have floated about the consciousness of mankind ever since he was able to invent well, words. They don't take into light the myriad of possibilities and alternative instances that each course of action could take.
Anyway, back to Earthly matters, I have set myself with the goal of procuring a wireless electronic reading device for my kid's upcoming birthday. The kindle is a shoo-in but my sister told me that it takes 3 months for anything to ship out from Amazon.com. Come to think about it, the only things that I purchase online are domains.

My daughter's really understanding and didn't persist with suggestions of an iPad or so. She just told me,

I'm a gadget cheapskate and I'm not ashamed of it, but I'm actually contemplating this:
It's an aPad from china-ipad.cn
It's sold by Texas Teknology (or is that Texas Instruments...? LOL)
Sometimes also called an ePad, it is for all intents and purposes an iPad Rip-Off. But who cares? It does what it's supposed to do, I think. So you can finally expect a gadget review from yours truly.
