It’s time for some new industrial, EBM, and even neue disco

About every 3 months or so I buy a pile of CDs (mostly used) and then that's what lives on my blackberry (in addition to the slowly rotating crop of oldies but goodies). What was life like before cheap, small sdcards? I don't remember too well, but I'm sure it sucked ass.

Oh now I remember. My first MP3 player was the "Rio", I splurged and spent the extra bucks for a whopping 256MB of RAM. It had a unique cable, meaning that I had to keep track of yet another damn cable and drag it between home and work everyday. Why did I need the cable all the time? Because it had a builtin battery that required constant charging. At the time, it was state of the art. I think it's collecting dust in a box of old gadgets in a closet right now. I don't know where the cable is.

The Blackberry 9000 Bold certainly has it's faults as a media player (namely the crappy battery life and primitive equalizer) but considering I get a wireless phone, all my email, contacts/calendar/tasks/memos, a web browser, a video player, a digital book reader, a digital photoalbum, a camera, a audio/video recorder, checkbook, a password keeper, a graphing calculator and a flashcard style learning aid attached to it, I think it's a fair tradeoff.

Anyways, in the interest of full disclosure here are the CDs I just bought this week, in no real order other than grouped by artist:

Review: Mobipocket Reader

Sunday, 15/02/2009 ≅14:53 ©brainycat

I installed the free Mobipocket Reader on my Blackberry 8300/v4.5 a couple of days ago. My first impression was finding books I wanted to read was going to be a real time consuming chore via EDGE, so I went to the mobipocket online bookstore via FireFox. I found several titles I want to read, but [...]
