This is it. You heard it first here. Print is dead. Close down the bookstores and libraries. This newest Kindle will change the world. OK, maybe not, but  Amazon has still outdone itself again, releasing two new Kindle versions with new features and a smaller form factor.

As is Amazonian tradition, the newest Kindle fails to have a version number associated with it, but in case you are counting, this is generation three. Kindle 3 is 21 percent smaller but still maintains the 6-inch reading area of generation 2. It is also 17 percent lighter (in weight that is), and introduces a new E-Ink screen that displays 50 percent better contrast.  In addition, the Kindle 3 has double the storage capacity and a new experimental Webkit-based web browser, which further allows you to read just about anything not found in a book (in black and white, of course).

This generation of the Kindle has two versions: 1) the Wi-Fi only version for $139, and 2) the Wi-Fi plus 3G version for $189.  Among the benefits of the Wi-Fi only version is that it can get 3 weeks of battery life with the wireless on.

The newest Kindle will go on sale at Amazon.com on August 27th, but eager readers can now pre-order their book killers (or tree savers, depending on your perspective). This Kindle comes in two colors: the traditional white and the new graphite, for all those who left dirty fingerprints on their old Kindle

The days of only watching video on the television and listening to music only on the radio are over. Even devices as small as mobile phones can play live television. But living room entertainment is far from dead, and with the increase in the amount of Internet content (both free and premium), the need for methods of streaming that content to the television has increased.

Fortunately, there are a variety ways to get Internet content, from movies to the latest songs, playing on your home theater. Some methods are easy as purchasing a box, while others are more complex but offer a wider range of customizable options. This list should help you decide which is best for you.

The Set-top Box

This is the easy, pre-packaged method of getting Internet content on your television. The name comes from cable boxes that used to sit on top of CRT televisions. Despite the name, most of these small devices are now found under or next to flat-screen TVs rather than on top of them.

They usually come with a variety of connection options: coax, component video, hdmi, etc.  The features, such as HD playback and the amount of customization allowed, depend on the software. Some allow you to stream content from your desktop computer to the TV. They may also support direct streaming from content providers like Netflix or Amazon.

Apple’s murder of Lala.com has left many former Lala users searching for a new service, or wishing they never used a service in the first place. Although there is nothing quite like the now deceased Lala, there are alternatives that are not iTunes.

In no particular order, here is a general list of some Internet radio and music streaming services with a brief description of their features. We have not included every service, so feel free to add additional suggestions (including links) in the comment section.

This is a sticky post!!! Make sure it sticks!

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

This should then split into another page with images and other things…

Some block quote tests:

Here’s a one line quote.

This part isn’t quoted. Here’s a much longer quote:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. In dapibus. In pretium pede. Donec molestie facilisis ante. Ut a turpis ut ipsum pellentesque tincidunt. Morbi blandit sapien in mauris. Nulla lectus lorem, varius aliquet, auctor vitae, bibendum et, nisl. Fusce pulvinar, risus non euismod varius, ante tortor facilisis lorem, non condimentum diam nisl vel lectus. Nullam vulputate, urna rutrum vulputate molestie, sapien dolor adipiscing nisi, eu malesuada ipsum lectus quis est. Nulla facilisi. Mauris a diam in eros pretium elementum. Vivamus lacinia nisl non orci. Duis ut dolor. Sed sollicitudin cursus libero.

Proin et lorem. Quisque odio. Ut gravida, pede sed convallis facilisis, magna dolor egestas dolor, non pulvinar metus magna in velit. Morbi vitae sem sit amet arcu vehicula gravida. Morbi placerat, est id pulvinar sollicitudin, ante augue vestibulum turpis, eu ultrices pede metus sit amet justo. Suspendisse metus. Mauris convallis mattis risus.
