NookColor is $250. But it has no cameras and it has to be hacked to become an Android tablet. The hacking can go smoothly — or not. But then when Barnes & Noble pushes out updates, the Sisyphean rock rolls down the hill again.

A $150 premium over the NookColor is, I think, worth it for the Galaxy Tab.

This interests me.

Japan Acts As Usual

They have a history of studying something until being forced to do something.

I saw this happen with the entire Aum Shinrikyo cult threat.

The minute I heard they turned down U.S. aid to cool the reactors, I knew a disaster was inevitable.

Now will come the cover-ups and lies to prevent panic, while tens of thousands, perhaps millions, are exposed to and perhaps even become poisoned by radiation.
