Sony Exits North America eBook Market

Sony Selects Kobo to Bring its World Class eBookstore to Sony Readers in the US and Canada

In a weird twist, both Sony’s eBook division and Kobo are led by Japanese. It used to be, respectively, an American and a Canadian.

What the hell. One last kick in the gut to Sony for botching the tremendous potential of the Reader and for not listening to those who said it needed wireless from the start. Let me link to my original four-part post from 2006:

Sony Reader: Part 1 (of 4)
Sony Reader: Part 2 (of 4)
Sony Reader: Part 3 (of 4)
Sony Reader: Part 4 (of 4)

Tizen Is Dead

Samsung Challenge to Apple and Google Stumbles

Understatement of the year so far:

It was unclear whether Samsung’s recent rapprochement with Google was driven by its struggles with Tizen.

I wondered if Samsung would throw Tizen under the bus in a previous post.

According to the linked report, it turns out Tizen had already been run over by several buses.

Even if Samsung dares to show Tizen at Mobile World Congress later this month, it will be only to save face.

But it’s dead.

Merry Christmas 2013

Don’t wind up like Jacob Marley.

A Christmas Carol Pictures 011

“Business!” cried the Ghost, wringing its hands again. “Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!”
