Heading up PCMag's consumer electronics and mobile products reviews coverage, Wendy Sheehan Donnell is lucky enough to spend her days working with words and drooling over shiny gadgets. She can typically be found neck-deep in HDTVs, digital cameras, tablets, mobile phones, and various other random gizmos. She's had a serious crush on Apple for more than 25 years, but a tumultuous love/hate affair with her iPhone has caused her to reevaluate this potentially unhealthy relationship. Still, she can't quite bring herself to break up with her many Apple products. Before joining PCMag.com, Wendy served as the managing editor of Computer Shopper. She earned her MA in magazine journalism from New York University.

Review: My 20 minutes with Amazon's latest Kindle

August 3rd, 2010

Summary:
Is the next-gen Kindle evolutionary or revolutionary? It may not matter at Amazon’s price points. The new Kindle is smaller, faster and cheaper. That’s a good holiday combo.

Extract:
"When playing with the new Kindle a few things jump out at you. First, it’s all screen since the frame around the device is much smaller (actually 21 percent) than its predecessor. It’s also light—a critical point for those of us that haven’t found any way to truly consolidate our devices. And the pages turn quickly. Is that enough to warrant a purchase? It is at Amazon’s price points.

Overall, the new Kindle swung me back on to the side of e-readers in this never-ending debate about multifunction (think iPad) vs. mostly single function devices (e-readers). The latest Kindle (in white and graphite) is a handy extra gadget to carry around. For me, the e-reader vs. iPad debate doesn’t necessarily apply since it’s not a zero sum affair. There will be iPad/Kindle households depending on the family. Simply put, I’m looking to consolidate devices, but I’m also looking to consolidate paper."

Kindle 3: Is There Still a Place for Dedicated e-Readers?

August 3rd, 2010

Source: Article by Jason Hiner Editor in Chief

Amazon launched the Kindle 3 this week with a few minor improvements and a much better price tag. It looks great and works better, but the question everyone seem to be asking is whether people still want dedicated e-readers, or if they’ll just read electronic books on existing mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) instead.

So we’d like to pose that question to the TechRepublic audience in today’s poll. But first, I’ll give you my quick take on it.

Apple iPad is Already Breaking Through in the Enterprise

August 3rd, 2010

Source: Article by Jason Hiner Editor in Chief

Last month at the CEA’s mid-year trade show in New York, I had an interesting conversation about the Apple iPad with Jeremy Toeman, one of the smartest guys in the tech space. Jeremy and I were talking about the report that Apple had sold three million iPads in the product’s first 80 days.

Like most analysts and observers, we were both a surprised at how quickly the iPad was hitting critical mass, but not surprised that people were responding well to the device itself. After all, we’d both traveled to the conference with an iPad in tow. Jeremy brought his iPad in place of a laptop and used it as his primary computing device throughout the trip. I brought my iPad in addition to my laptop and used it during my flight to New York to prepare my notes for the panel that I moderated at the event.
