Ekspo Buku Islam Putrajaya 2012

After coming to know of this Islamic Book Fair 2012 in Putrajaya which ends tomorrow, I’ve decided that I might drop by just to take a peek. That is, assuming if I have the time to do so. I have been extremely busy these days, so much so that I do not even have the time to update this blog!

Amazon Kindle 3 video review

After watching the above Amazon Kindle 3 video review from Mobile Tech Review on YouTube, I’ve made up my mind to get the Kindle 3 once I have the sufficient funds to do so. At the same time, it so happens I came across this Malaysian online store which directly sells the Kindle 3 for RM675 (WiFi-only version). Add the leather case (RM80) and the total would come up to a whooping RM755. Personally I feel that anything above RM500 for an e-book reader is overpriced, but considering the current difficult state of getting a Kindle locally, I guess this cannot be helped.

I am going to purchase the Amazon Kindle 3 (WiFi-only version) as soon as I have the cash to do so.

Never mind the critics who accuse Google of getting a “significant competitive advantage”. It is not like these same critics are unable to do what Google is planning to do and ready to start implementing when it is possible.
