The Kindle Goes Global

Today is the long awaited day that Amazon's Kindle begins to ship to over 100 countries throughout the world.

The cost is $279 plus some shipping and customs fees depending on where it ships.  Amazon is hoping the Kindle will revolutionize the way we read books, similar to what the iPod did for music.  The Kindle has already a growing following in The States and I think it may even be more popular in other parts of the world.

The fact that there are many other e-book readers either launching or getting ready to launch, it was important for Amazon to get it's Kindle in front of Europeans, Asians, and Australians as quickly as possible and just in time for the holidays.

One note, the international Kindle will not have the experimental browser and free wireless through Sprint Whispernet that the U.S. version will have.  International Kindle's that will have wireless download of a book will allow that only, and not Google searching and Wikipedia checking that we all love.

Brady with a Huge First Half

The score has The Patriots leading The Titans 45-0 at half-time.  You would think Tom Brady had a big half and he did.  5 TD's in one quarter.  The Titans look dazed and confused.  Brady is back.

Here is the Fantasy Football grid for Brady for the 1st half.

Verizon's Droid to go after iPhone

 

Many have tried, not one has succeeded; going after Apple's iPhone appears to be a futile excersise.

Now Verizon is taking its turn with a new release upcoming in the Droid.  The Droid will have a horizontal QWERTY keyboard in addition to a touch screen.  No pictures have been officially released by Verizon at this point, but a few have leaked.

Like its name the phone will be Android based, with tie-ins to all of Google's applications.  A nice feature is the 5 mexapixel phone it comes with and GPS functions also will be able to be activated.  The phone is thin and is to have a very nice vibrant screen.

TV ads are running on the internet and during Major League Baseball Playoff Games. The ads go right at the iPhone.

Go to DroidDoes.com for the page set up for the Droid.

Five weeks of NFL and fantasy football are now in the books and whether you are 5-0, 0-5 or somewhere in between it is important to stay focused and continue to put your best possible lineup out there each and every week. It usually takes seven wins to get in the playoffs in a standard 13-week fantasy league that allows six playoff teams. So, if you are winless at this point of the season, you have a tough road ahead of you, but all is not lost, you can right this ship.

We are approaching a crucial point in the fantasy football season. This is the stretch of the season that can make or break a fantasy football team, making it very important not to make any mistakes in your starting lineup. You need to start the right players at each and every position and that includes tight end. So, as you search for the tight end that can be a difference maker in your line-up this week, please enjoy the Bruno Boys Fantasy Football Week 6 Tight End Rankings.


1. Antonio Gates (San Diego Chargers) vs. Denver

In the Chargers’ last game in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Antonio Gates had the monster game fantasy owners have been waiting for. He had nine catches for 124 yards with two touchdowns, giving him 24 receptions for 349 yards with two touchdowns through four games. Gates is a must-start fantasy tight end this week against the division rival Denver Broncos.
Point Projection: 13 points


2. Owen Daniels (Houston Texans) @ Cincinnati

Owen Daniels had eight catches for 94 yards in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 5. With 39 fantasy points through five games this season, he is emerging into a weekly must-start TE1. Look for another good performance from Daniels this week against the 4-1 Cincinnati Bengals.
Point Projection: 12 points

Hurricane Rick a "Dangerous Category 5"

MIAMI – Hurricane Rick has become an "extremely dangerous" Category 5 storm off Mexico's Pacific coast.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm is now packing sustained winds of 160 mph (260 kph) and it could threaten  Baja California next week.

Authorities in the resort city of Acapulco closed the port to small craft after Rick kicked up heavy waves and gusts of wind.

Rick was centered about 290 miles (470 kilometers) south of the port of Manzanillo, west of Acapulco, on Saturday afternoon and was moving northwest near 15 mph (24 kph).

Forecasters expect it to stay well off the coast for several days before bending east over cooler waters and hitting the peninsula as possibly a Category 2 hurricane sometime Wednesday.

I always wanted a big hurricane to be "Hurricane Rick".
