I was a bit disappointed when I came across the news regarding a judge’s judgement to reject Google’s plan to release millions of scanned digitised books to the world.

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.
From the looks of it, the Amazon Kindle 3 really looks amazing! Maybe I will get the Kindle after all.
I bought a new Acer laptop two days ago, but until today I still cannot make up my mind on which e-book reader to buy. With so many choices in the market today, I am frankly at loss on which e-reader to plunk my money into.
