re:Barnes & Noble reportedly readying 8GB Nook Tablet

B&N steps DOWN in spec to compete with Amazon's Kindle Fire. And Amazon will be stepping up with a color e-ink Kindle to compete with low end Nook Color tablet.

E Ink Holdings (EIH) reportedly has landed orders for 6-inch color e-book reader modules from Amazon with shipments to begin in March, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report.
Shipments of the touched-enabled e-book reader modules are expected to top three million units a month, the paper said.

re:Smartphone survey

»tech.fortune.cnn.com/2012/02/20/···rtphone/

"Whether or not you have a smartphone is closely related to both how old you are and how much money you make," finds a Nielsen survey of 20,000 Americans with mobile phones conducted in January. I quote:

While overall smartphone penetration stood at 48 percent in January, those in the 24-34 age group showed the greatest proportion of smartphone ownership, with 66 percent saying they had a smartphone. In the same age group, 8 of 10 of those that had gotten a new device in the last three months chose a smartphone. Among those who chose a device in the last three months, more than half of those under 65 had chosen a smartphone.

No big surprises there. The twist in the report issued Monday is that when age and income are both taken into account, older subscribers with higher incomes are more likely to pack a smartphone. For example, those 55-64 making over 100K a year are almost as likely to carry a smartphone as those in the 35-44 age bracket making 35-75K per year.

IOW the young and the wealthy, regardless of age, have smartphones.

Re: re:Smartphone survey

Eh, the richest (100k) of the old people (65+) only has 38% of them with smartphones. That is less then every segment from 18-34, beats only 1 segment from 35-44, and beats out 3 segments of 45-54. Still a massive drop.

Reality: The RIAA is collapsing

Yep.. After Whitney Houston's death, the MPAA and the RIAA are showing how massive their douche baggery truly is.

Nothing like making a buck off her death. They even started jacking up the prices on everything minutes after they found out.

Where does this money go? You get one guess. I have no sympathy for the Entertainment Industry. They screwed themselves, plain and simple.
