iPad and iPhone joy! Mouse use, better speech rec and fonts from app store ap...
by David Rothman
4 Jun 2019 at 9:57am
An iPad or iPhone will never be a true writer’s-device—at least when you’re working with an external monitor and keyboard—without the ability to add a mouse. But the just-revealed iPadOS preview page tells us that mouse capability might be ahead even though it apparently won’t work with external screens. A coming attraction if it isn’t […]

Amazon introduces new Fire 7 model with 16 GB storage
by Chris Meadows
16 May 2019 at 12:28pm
Amazon’s just refreshed its basic Fire 7 (and basic Fire 7 Kids Edition) tablet to the 8th generation, bringing some much-needed improvements to the still-$50 device ($100 for the Kids Edition). It changed up the quad-core processor, so it will be faster even though the clock speed is still 1.3GHz. Storage options are now doubled—instead […]

Is there really any point to a 21:9 smartphone?
by Chris Meadows
15 May 2019 at 8:00pm
What’s the “right” aspect ratio for a phone or tablet? Apple and Amazon have two very different ideas about that, as I indicated in an answer on Quora last night. iPads have a 4:3 (1.33:1) aspect ratio, which is great for displaying 8.5″ x 11″ pages in their proper proportion (albeit usually smaller than that […]

Supreme Court finds iPhone users can sue Apple over app store fees
by Chris Meadows
14 May 2019 at 2:23pm
Apple’s 30% vig may yet come home to roost. Yesterday, the Supreme Court reached a decision in Apple, Inc. vs. Pepper, a 2011 case concerning whether a group of iPhone owners led by Robert Pepper had standing to sue Apple over its practice of restricting iOS devices to apps sold in its own store. Apple […]

Georgia and archivist activist Carl Malamud ask the Supreme Court to hear the...
by Chris Meadows
13 May 2019 at 7:06pm
Archivist Carl Malamud continues to struggle with Georgia over the right to publish Georgia’s laws for free on the Internet. In July, 2015, Georgia filed suit, accusing Malamud and his organization Public.Resource.Org of using a “strategy of terrorism” to try to force states to publish laws freely themselves. Though the circuit court found for Georgia, […]

Apple Books still rejecting ebooks for mentioning Amazon, author Sharon Lee r...
by Chris Meadows
8 May 2019 at 4:56pm
Today, author Sharon Lee wrote on Facebook that Apple has rejected some of the ebooks that she and her husband Steve Miller publish through their small press, Pinbeam Books. These books, Lee writes, commit the cardinal sin of mentioning, which seems to be verboten for ebooks published via the Apple Books Store. She adds: […]

Amazon blocks Fire launcher-switching tool LauncherHijack?ineffectively
by Chris Meadows
2 May 2019 at 12:32pm
On the WordPress control panel’s statistics display, a few particular TeleRead posts are, without fail, listed among the top-five most-visited day in and day out. Those posts are the ones explaining how to tweak Amazon’s inexpensive Fire tablets to work more like plain-vanilla Android tablets—adding the Google Play utilities and changing the launcher away from […]

Review: The Mueller Report: Get commercial version of official PDF (too hard ...
by Chris Meadows
25 Apr 2019 at 5:24pm
It’s not the crime, but the cover-up. This is the lesson that came out of Watergate: when it comes to criminal investigations of a scandal, it’s not usually the thing being investigated that gets people into trouble—it’s what they do to try to keep the facts of the matter from coming out. The lesson is […]

Mueller Report ebook news roundup
by Chris Meadows
20 Apr 2019 at 12:51pm
The Mueller Report’s been out for a couple of days—long enough to have produced a number of stories of interest to TeleRead readers. The major news sites have done a pretty good job of covering the contents of the report, but that’s not really what this site is about. I’m more interested in the stories […]

For a couple more days, Tor’s monthly ebook club will be giving away free copies of Cory Doctorow’s ebook Walkaway. Walkaway tells the story of a youth culture which has broken away from the constraints of traditional society to build their own post-scarcity society in wilderness areas, making use of advanced fabrication technology descended from […]

by Chris Meadows
16 Apr 2019 at 4:31pm
On the Internet Archive’s blog on April 10, Office Manager Chris Butler wrote that over the previous week, the Archive had received a series of email notices from a French government agency erroneously identifying over 550 URLs as “terrorist propaganda.” The blog post has an extensive list, but they included a number of major […]

Scary legalese and the content clause: Don?t be afraid of the license grant!
by Chris Meadows
11 Apr 2019 at 9:30pm
Just a reminder: As Chris makes clear, he is not a lawyer. I myself would suggest checking with one if you have the slightest doubt. – D.R. Legalese. Sometimes it seems as though we can’t escape it—even though we try. When we add new software or services, we’re deluged with dozens of pages of end-user […]

by Chris Meadows
7 Apr 2019 at 6:08pm
Today, I got a notification (PDF link) of an impending class action settlement involving Amazon’s audiobook subsidiary, Audible.The lawsuit being settled had to do with Audible’s $15 audiobook “credits,” which customers would subscribe to buy one per month. These credits expired after six months if not used, and were lost altogether upon canceling the subscription […]
