Sony Daily Edition Reader: 3G, 7-Inch

Posted by EscapeDigitalMedia

It's what we thought; The Sony Daily Edition reader is Sony's first (AT&T) 3G reader with a seven-inch touch widescreen display that you can rotate to view books in landscape. It'll be available in December for $399. Updated.
But yeah, check out how crazy wide that display is. Newspaper content announcement is coming later, unfortunately—as in weeks later, not later today. Also unfortunately, Sony only brought one model and we can't touch it. And while 3G will be free, just like the Kindle, wireless access only gets you access to Sony's book store, none of the other new partnerships announced. Boooo.

One saving grace? The electronic library program: The eBook store will now have a Library Finder page, where you type in your zip and it'll take you to local library, where you can check out books from your library electronically. Books will expire in 21 days. They're taking the "virtual library" concept fairly literally here, so libraries will have to purchase licenses for each individual copy, which is loaned and returned in the same way as a physical one would be. That means a library will have a limited stock of virtual books—weird, I know—all licensed from an outside company called Overdrive. We'll have to see what the selection is like before getting too excited about this, but it's a pretty cool concept. And hey, free books!

Also, anybody else disappointed there's no Barnes & Noble partnership to really fight the Amazon book Borg?

Segway's Little Sister: The eniCycle

Posted by EscapeDigitalMedia

The eniCycle was designed by Aleksander Polutnik and is the lovechild of a Segway and whatever the hell this tihng is. And I, for one, would totally ride it. Without a helmet. I'm bad!

The EniCycle is powered by an electric 1000 watt hub motor that you lean forward to set into motion--just like a Segway. Measuring your vertical angle 100 times a second, the gyroscopes make adjustments to help keep you balanced.

Not only would I ride the hell out of this thing, I would do it juggling bears. And not just because I'm hardcore, but because I'm classically trained for the circus. Just sayin', I can eat fire (now booking birthday parties).

Q: What did the snail riding the turtle say?
