Ready Player One: The book and the movie
by Chris Meadows
30 Mar 2018 at 7:06pm
Easter weekend is here, and perhaps not entirely coincidentally, the movie adaptation of a book about a multi-billion dollar Easter Egg hunt has just hit the big screen. That’s where I saw Steven Spielberg’s take on Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One last night, on a full-sized museum IMAX theater in 3D—and saw it again tonight, […]


Google blocks uncertified Android devices from the Play Store?and how to work...
by Chris Meadows
27 Mar 2018 at 7:59pm
If you’ve been using Android tablets for a while, you’re probably a fan of the way they’ve been effectively the opposite of Apple’s walled garden. Based on open-source software, effectively anybody could make an Android phone tablet, and any Android device could have the Play Store sideloaded onto it—even the Amazon Fire. But some Android […]


Review: Onyx Boox Max 2 13.3? e-ink Android tablet
by Chris Meadows
25 Mar 2018 at 5:05pm
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been trying out the Onyx Boox Max 2 e-ink Android tablet. A quite capable little device, this $800 tablet offers a 13.3″ e-ink screen about four times the size of my 6″ Kindles, with both capacitive touchscreen and WACOM pen layers, coupled with 32 GB of onboard storage, […]


Issue #1 in Gutenberg-Holtzbrinck case: Push for max copyright everywhere, no...
by A TeleRead Contributor
21 Mar 2018 at 11:21am
Editor-Publisher’snote: Why aren’t library leaders and educators everywhere caring more about the legal assault on Project Gutenberg? Listen to Eric Hellman, an ex-OCLC director and master techie! The threat isn’t just to PG.D.R. By Eric Hellman, president of the Free Ebook Foundation Reproduced from Go To Hellman under the equivalent of CC BY SA(read to […]

by David Rothman
21 Mar 2018 at 8:28am
iPad and iPhone owners using recent versions of iOS can now scroll through Kindle books, not just turn pages. Props to Amazon for heeding pleas from TeleRead and others.In another welcome move, Version 6.5 will let you resize your Kindle window in split view—so you can more easily use other apps at the same timewhile […]


Toys R Us bankruptcy: Partly ?Cyberbooks? plot in reverse
by Chris Meadows
18 Mar 2018 at 10:44pm
Those Toys R Us kids who didn’t want to grow up are now going to outlive their favorite store. The latest news isn’t good for the beleagured retailer—its pre-Christmas hopes of reorganizing to continue operation didn’t hold up after a much weaker-than-expected holiday season. It’s tempting to blame the big, bad Amazon for driving it […]


Refurbished 32 GB Kindle Paperwhite ?Manga Model? now $89.99 at Woot
by Chris Meadows
12 Mar 2018 at 8:00pm
Here’s the kind of deal that only comes along once in a very great while. Do you like your Kindle Paperwhite but think 4 GB of onboard storage just isn’t enough? Woot has the refurbished “Paperwhite Manga Model” available for $89.99. Available in both black and white, this 6″ Paperwhite contains a whopping 32 GB […]


A Wrinkle in Time: The book and the movie
by Chris Meadows
10 Mar 2018 at 9:24am
To celebrate my birthday last night, I used my MoviePass subscription to take in the Disney movie adaptation of one of the best-loved children’s books of the last fifty years or so, A Wrinkle in Time. How was it, and how did it compare to the book? Part of the answer to that involves looking […]


Amazon runs big Kindle sale to kick off National Reading Month
by Chris Meadows
4 Mar 2018 at 6:26pm
To celebrate National Reading Month, Amazon is running a big sale on its Kindle e-ink devices this week. The sale knocks $20 off the Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite models but doesn’t include the more expensive Voyage and Oasis (except for one refurbished Voyage that appears to be an older model). It also includes a number […]


Project Gutenberg blocks German users after court rules in favor of Holtzbrin...
by Chris Meadows
3 Mar 2018 at 12:55pm
The global Internet and highly territorial real world have had a number of collisions, especially where ebook rights are concerned. The most recent such dispute involves Project Gutenberg, a well-respected public domain ebook provider—in fact, the oldest. It concerns 18 German-language books by three German authors. As a result of a German lawsuit, Project Gutenberg […]


Facebook, fake news, and false positives
by Chris Meadows
2 Mar 2018 at 7:08pm
The proliferation of fake news on the Internet has been a problem for a while, and not just because that’s what Donald Trump likes to call any news story he disagrees with. Some sites exist simply to post any half-truth or outright falsehood that will get enough people angry to drive traffic to their advertisers. […]


Serial Box serial e-publisher snags $1.65 million investment
by Chris Meadows
1 Mar 2018 at 6:55pm
I hadn’t heard much about serial e-publisher Serial Box since it was founded in late 2015 and inked a deal with Simon & Schuster to publish completed serials in print in early 2016. But a recent piece in Publishers Weekly reveals the service is still alive and kicking. PW reports that the start-up has secured […]


Is the e-ink reader dead? And does it matter?
by Chris Meadows
25 Feb 2018 at 5:05pm
On Tom’s Guide, writer Marshall Honorof has an interesting, lengthy report looking at the apparent fate of the e-ink e-reading device. Honorof begins by noting that the ebook format is doing just fine, but use of the dedicated reader device itself seems to be dwindling. Why could this be? Honorof observes that people don’t necessarily […]


Disney vs Redbox decision may have profound implications for bundling
by Chris Meadows
23 Feb 2018 at 5:10pm
Remember the case I covered in December, about Disney suing Redbox for breaking up retail Star Wars DVDs and selling the bundled digital copy codes separately while it rented the discs? The separate sales violated the shrink-wrap license of the digital copies, which were intended to be tied to ownership of the disc versions with […]
