I've noticed strange behavior on FB recently. I've requested to be friend of one of my colleagues, he hasn't confirmed it yet (maybe never will), but I can see his posts (on my wall):) I was quite surprised, so I've double checked if maybe he accepted my request and that's why I can see his posts, but no. Weird. Maybe FB is testing some new functionality which is still not complete, but I don't like it.
I love Amazon Kindle. This device is almost perfect. However I’ve found one “flaw” recently. We’ve bought additional Kindle (3G) for my wife’s sister and as it was a gift I’ve de-registered it from my Amazon account. Unfortunately it appears that if Kindle is not registered you can’t use 3G (it’s quite logical, Amazon protects their business), but the fact that it can’t be used even for registration is a little strange.
In one of my posts I’ve complaint that I feel too old for reading King. But now I’ve changed my mind. Stephen King is getting old and he is nothing like wine. I’ve recently read The Long Walk (BTW first book I’ve read on my Kindle:)) and now I’m reading Salem’s Lot, and must say that I’m amazed. These books are really good, so I’m still in mood for good horror book, but my favorite author is not writing them anymore.
Yes, my new Kindle is here! And it’s awesome. Browser is even more functional than I thought, I was able to access any page I’ve wanted, of course no flash. Reading experience is great, but I would be able to tell if it really don’t make your eyes tired after reading little more, now I’m just playing with features generally. Keyboard is alright, but if I would have tried to write this post on it I would definitely gone mental.
Yes, after months of reading about it. After many pros and cons being reviewed in my mind, and after claiming on this blog that I don’t want it anymore:) I’ve finally ordered it from Amazon. Of course 3G option as I would like to have access to Internet anywhere. I must admit that it was mainly the price which made my mind, previously it was horribly expensive (as for me) and wasn’t offering all I want from such device.
I’m now reading Everything’s Eventual by Stephen King and before starting it I’ve read Duma Key (this title was translated into Polish as “Master’s Hand” BTW., sic!). And I must say I wasn’t impressed. Sure Duma is OK, very good story, nice characters and it’s keeping you thrilled, but ending is disappointing. Everything’s Eventual is a pack of short stories, so it’s hard to rate it as a whole, but it’s rather average.
I’ve seen trailer to Virginity Hit the other day and must say that I’ve lost faith in humanity, again. Are teenagers really such stupid now that they’re willing to watch such stuff? For sure in High School I was watching, listening and reading a lot of bullshit, but there are limits. A movie about a guy who is about to loose his virginity, common. It’s supposed to be para-documentary, at least looks like it, but actors are so weak that one must be retarded to find it even partially true.
I'm reading, rather listening as I have an audiobook, "Gottland" by Mariusz Szczygieł. It's about interesting people and facts from Czech Republic. Unfortunately, despite it has been translated into many languages, English is not one of them. Really good read. I've learned about many things from Czech culture I've got no idea before. First story from the book is about Bata's family and begins with description of life of Tomas Bata.
