November 18, 2011 Leave a comment

Are you looking for a review for the just released $199 Kindle Fire? One of my fave sites to check for reviews is Mobile Tech Review and they’ve got theirs up now from @LisaG! Check out the written review here! (I’ve also embedded the video review)

* This is a great tablet for those who are in the US and are fully enmeshed in the Amazon.Com ecosystem – meaning you buy your books, music, videos, apps from Amazon (and have Prime to boot) and therefore are able to take full advantage of the Amazon cloud. *or you can just root it and enjoy a cheap android tablet!

November 18, 2011 Leave a comment

Well… Barnes & Noble has a new promo — the NOOK Daily Find: Today’s Great Book at a Great Price! So, Nook owners need not be envious of those with Kindles! 😉

And the new deal is…

Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction: Build Implements of Spitball Warfare‘ by John Austin (Chicago Review Press) is now available at the specially discounted price of $3.17 on the B&N Nookbooks site. Hopefully, Amazon will price-match!

Book Description

PopularMechanics.com selection for one of The Best DIY and Home Improvement Books of 2009

We’ve come a long way from the Peashooter Era: with the advent of modern household products and office supplies—binder clips, clothespins, rubber bands, ballpoint pens, toothpicks, paper clips, plastic utensils, and (of course) matches and barbeque lighters—troublemakers of all stripes have the components needed to build an impressive, if somewhat miniaturized, arsenal.

Toy designer John Austin provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for each project, including materials and ammo lists, clear diagrams, and construction tips, for mayhem-loving MacGyvers. The 35 devices include catapults, slingshots, minibombs, darts, and combustion shooters. Build a tiny trebuchet from paper clips and a D-cell battery. Wrap a penny in a string of paper caps to create a surprisingly impressive “bomb.” Several of the projects even include variations where combatants mount laser pointer sights to their shooters to increase their accuracy.

Finally, once you’ve built your armory, the author provides plans for a Top Secret Concealing Book to hide your stash, as well as targets for shooting practice. Never let your personal space go undefended again!

Here’s a new game app for the Kindle!

Jigsaw Words Volume 2 (A Free Word Game for Kindle) ‘ by Amazon Digital Services is available on the Amazon Kindle site for FREE! Just click here to download!

Game Description

Jigsaw Words Volume 2 is a word game that challenges you to combine groups of letters into words that match the clues given.

This update to the popular Jigsaw Words gives you 100 new puzzles and each puzzle has 10 clues to solve. The puzzles are organized into 10 themed categories like A Journey Through the Decades and College 101, and you can use the theme to help you solve the clues.

In each puzzle, you start with a set of 10 clues. You also have a set of randomly arranged puzzle pieces with letters on them. Your goal is to solve the clues in the puzzle by arranging the puzzle pieces so that the letters form the word that matches each clue. Start with the easiest clues first. As you use each puzzle piece, it is removed from play, making it easier to find the more difficult matches. You can also shuffle the grid of puzzle pieces at any time for a different perspective.

If you enjoy working with words and patterns, try Jigsaw Words Volume 2 and test your ability to build words today!
