What to look for while buying an e-Book reader

What to look for while buying an e-Book reader

Even if you are not gadgets’ fanatic you must be aware of the wave called e-Book reader cresting the market with potential customers and new device entries every other week. It isn’t something new, but surprisingly enough it has been on the earth for quite a good number of years. Back in 2007 Amazon Kindle(d) the need for a dedicated digital reader to fire the trend today. If you don’t own it still then this short guide may help you to decide on one pretty soon. The most sought after features If you are an ardent reader then this device is bound to find a place in your bag. Yes, you guessed it right. The size of an e-Book reader does matter. The lighter and thinner the better it is for you to carry around anywhere. The most appealing feature of these devices is its crisp, paper-like e-Ink display. If you care for your eyes, and you read for long stretches then stick to an e-Ink display than an LCD one. Headaches and strenuous eyes will be a history for you. With an LCD screen you can’t even think of reading in bright sunlight, but the electronic ink display reads best in bright day-light. Just remember to carry a small light if you are a nocturnal reader. The third most appreciated aspect is the battery life of an e-Book reader. The ones using e-Ink display tend to conserve power, thus providing the reader with battery juice lasting for around a month. Additional features that you need to decide on Do you think an e-Book reader should have an MP3 player? I think it is foolish to have one when there are dedicated MP3 players to soothe your hearing taste. The first generation Kindle had 2GB of storage for 1500 books. Can somebody still read more books in a lifetime? Larger storage capacity is unnecessary unless somebody wants to use it as a storage device! It is necessary for you to check out if the e-Book reader sports text highlighting, notes taking and bookmarking of pages. Such trivial functionalities prove extremely handy while traveling. Attributes such as address book, calendar, a to-do list, and robotic voice reading out text are superficial for an e-Book reader. Now-a-days with an iPhone or Blackberry by your side you really don’t expect an e-Book reader, of all, to have such characteristics. Definitely, an e-Book reader must be ambidextrous, having an accelerometer, wireless enabled, and easy to use. With Amazon, Sony, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Ectaco (thinnest and least priced jetBook Mini), and of course Apple (iPad, which I don’t consider as an e-Book reader) touting...

Buying an MP3 Player? Don’t mistake overlooking some key features

I was excited to listen to my first MP3 music player. I kept it on even while sleeping on the first night. Next day morning I carried it to the gym. Whether jogging or traveling my MP3 Player was an inseparable part of my life for a week. And then suddenly it stopped working while I was on a workout! It was a shock for both of us. I never cared to know the device before and after buying it unless losing it to mishandling. Sharing with you a few facts may help you make wise choices while buying one for yourself. Buy an MP3 Player suiting your lifestyle Believe it or not, but the truth is that MP3 Player needs to be bought to adapt your lifestyle and not the other way round. Keep these few key features in mind before purchasing: Storage medium The MP3 Players are available with two types of storage medium – hard-drive based and flash based. The hard-drive players offer most storage space, tend to be larger in size, and at the same time they are prone to damage as hard disks are fragile. You need to avoid jumping around with it! The flash based players are more durable, smaller in size and lighter which makes them ideal for travelling or workouts. Storage capacity If you are a music aficionado, and you love to carry a wide variety of music collection then hard-drive based player is best for you. It can accommodate nearly 20,000 songs for you with the maximum storage capacity of around 80GB. If music is just to keep you company everywhere then you can opt for a flash-based player which offers nearly 2000 tunes with a storage capacity of 8GB. Battery life MP3 music players generally use rechargeable batteries. If you buy a hard-drive based device then be aware of its power inefficiency. Due to movable parts such devices consume more battery. If you happen to view video then the battery life reduces even further. On the other hand, flash-based devices are energy-efficient and are capable of supporting 20 to 50 hours of battery life. Check out some more features to get the best deal The interface of your digital audio device should be easier to understand and faster to operate to enable faster loading of music on the device. Always buy a player with maximum capacity and one with FM tuner to offer your ears a wider variety of music. Be careful to note whether maximum file formats are supported by the MP3 Player of your choice. Also, it should be software/hardware compatible to sync with your PC without much...
