Harry Potter Kindle In Motion books feature magical MOVING pictures: WATCH this preview

This is my favorite story of the day so far! I love the thought of this – moving picture in e-books, some of them interactive! How cool is that? Imagine what you can do with children’s and Young Adult literature. I hope this really catches on and it’s no surprise that J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter” would be the story to bring this forward to the masses. Can’t wait to get my copy!

Best MP3 Players: TechRadar’s guide to the best portable music players | TechRadar

Yes Virginia, some folks still use an MP3 player 🙂

Gone are the days when the humble MP3 player served as the center for our music-listening needs – these days, the smartphone is the most popular listening device, and for good reason.

Amazon Studios Seeks TV Cord-Cutting Emmy | PYMNTS.com

A quick scan of the nominees list for the major categories turns up a very notable pattern: It is a good year for streaming services and the original content they produce, but not such a great one for traditional network television. HBO is the notable exception, but HBO also boasts a very popular subscription streaming service in HBOGo. HBO racked up an insane 110 nominations, with Netflix tracking fast on its heels at 93. Hulu, it should be noted, put up 18, and many of those are in major categories like Best Drama, Comedy and Leading Actor/Actress performances.

Amazon held steady at 16 nominations, a situation that reportedly has left Jeff Bezos distinctly unsatisfied with the Amazon Studio Team. He’s leveled a pretty clear mandate about what is expected in the future: bring him Game of Thrones. In response, Amazon’s creative schedule is said to be making some major overhauls with aims at appealing to a more mass market — less Man In The High Castle and more Ray Donovan.
