Boldface now in OverDrive?s Libby ebook app for library patrons: How to use it
by David Rothman
18 Jan 2018 at 8:13am
OverDrive‘s nifty Libby app for library patrons is so much easier to use than earlier alternatives. But Libby lacked an all-text boldface option, a “must” for library patrons with contrast sensitivity issues—especially older people. That included me, even after cataract surgery. Now OverDrive has wised up. I’m not sure when it happened, but, yes, boldface […]


20 finalists for Amazon?s HQ2?including my D.C. area and Chris?s Indianapolis
by David Rothman
18 Jan 2018 at 6:48am
Back in September, TeleRead’s Chris Meadows invited Amazon to bring its second headquarters complex to Indianapolis. Lo and behind, Indianapolis is among 20 finalists announced today, along with–get this–Northern Virginia, D.C. and nearby suburban Maryland (news accountshere; more details from Amazonhere). I myself live in Alexandria, Virginia, just across the Potomac from D.C. Ah, the […]


Movie theater fears of MoviePass echo Big Six?s fears of Amazon
by Chris Meadows
3 Jan 2018 at 9:43pm
Happy New Year, everyone! One of my Christmas presents this year was a one-year subscription to MoviePass, the $10-a-month service that pays ticket costs for its subscribers to see up to one movie per day. I’ve used the service twice so far, taking in Pixar’sCoco and the Hugh Jackman/Zac Efron vehicleThe Greatest Showman. And I’ve […]


The Internet Archive?s OpenLibrary project violates copyright, the Authors Gu...
by Chris Meadows
18 Dec 2017 at 9:58pm
Four years ago, on the old site, I wrote about how Archive.org’s OpenLibrary project was systematically violating the copyrights of a number of authors, including Diane Duane and Mercedes Lackey. Archive.org seemed to feel that making digital copies of paper books and loaning them out as if theywere the paper books as long as it […]


Phone Review: The Android One Moto X4
by Chris Meadows
14 Dec 2017 at 10:12pm
Ever since my Nexus 6P bit the dust, I’d had my eye on the new Motorola Moto X4 phone—a nicely inexpensive mid-range phone that cost a good $200 less than one of Google’s new Pixel models, and was one of just a handful of models that would support Google’s Project Fi service. After my bad […]


Hoopla Digital introduces ?Read-Along? children?s books with audio narration
by Chris Meadows
4 Dec 2017 at 5:00am
Starting today, digital library service Hoopla Digital is introducing a new line of “Picture Books with Read-Alongs” for young readers. Unlike Hoopla’s normal ebook titles, which feature traditional reflowable text sized to fit device screens, these Read-Along titles are displayed in specific picture-book layouts, much like PDFs. And they feature an audio player with audio […]


Content duplication issue briefly keeps Sharon Lee and Steve Miller?s latest ...
by Chris Meadows
3 Dec 2017 at 11:24pm
Update: A few hours after I posted this, Sharon Lee posted an update stating that someone from Amazon customer service got the whole thing straightened out for them. Glad that they were able to see reason after all! Authors Sharon Lee and Steve Miller are running into a little static when trying to publish some […]


Micro-USB: A failed port waiting to happen
by Chris Meadows
3 Dec 2017 at 3:44pm
I need to talk to you about an important issue, and one that you will probably have to face sooner or later: the micro-USB port on your phone, e-reader, or other device going bad. I’ve experienced a rash of these port failures lately. My Nexus 6 had it fail (twice!), my Karma Go hotspot did, […]


Bundlers beware? Disney sues Redbox for reselling digital movie codes
by Chris Meadows
1 Dec 2017 at 6:28am
The digital media era, software contracts, and DRM have spawned another first sale lawsuit, this one between Disney and disc-rental kiosk Redbox. And this case has potential implications for book-and-ebook bundling. As large numbers of people have turned to their tablets and phones for viewing media, a number of major studios (especially Disney) have tried […]

by Chris Meadows
24 Nov 2017 at 4:46am
I’m glad I held off on that deal on the Amazon Moto X4 with Special Offers I noticed the other day. Today, Google’s just announced its own Moto X4 Black Friday offer: $100 in Project Fi credit with the purchase and activation of an Android One Moto X direct from Project Fi.The credit is awarded […]


Amazon Black Friday sale sees plenty of e-reading devices marked down
by Chris Meadows
19 Nov 2017 at 3:08pm
You might have seen some of the sales circulars and articles floating around, but I thought I would round up a few of the savings concerning e-reading-related matters. The sales kick in at various times over the holiday season, but at least some of them (such as the Fire HD 10 tablet for $100) started […]


Which Moto X4 should I choose?
by Chris Meadows
8 Nov 2017 at 10:35pm
A couple of months ago, my Nexus 6 disappeared, and I ended up having to pick up an inexpensive used Nexus 6P to replace it. I was happy with the device overall, but after only a couple of months of service, the phone has died. Apparently thanks to faulty soldering by the manufacturer, the phone […]
