Harry Potter May Be Getting The E-Book Treatment

Filed under: Harry PotterTech Talk

harry potter may be headed to ereaders

After the final Harry Potter film is released, it'll probably be time to re-read all the books AND re-watch all the movies in an effort to cope.

Looks like we may be able to re-experience the Harry Potter series on our iPads and Kindles, because J.K. Rowling is considering releasing the series in e-book format.

Here's what J.K.'s spokeswoman had to say about it:

"The e-book format is now something that is being actively considered."

Make it happen, J.K.! You KNOW all the technologically-savvy Potter fans out there will jump all over this!

Would U re-purchase the Harry Potter series in e-book format?

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

apple dominates online purchases of 2010

As we mentioned before, The Amazon Kindle has become the top-selling item in Amazon history, but it wasn't the ONLY the item that sold like crazy in 2010.

Aside from the Kindle, Amazon's other top selling items included the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and AT&T's Samsung Captivate phone.

As far as eBay is concerned, the hot items that were eBidded for in 2010 included the iPhone 4, Barbie dolls, military jackets, Hot Wheels cars, and the iPad.

According to eBay, they sold 1.63 million iPhone 4-related items, and 631,399 iPad-related items.

Overall, it looks like Apple products dominated in 2010, and we have a feeling they'll continue to do so in 2011.

Did U make any iPurchases in 2010?

And it's a K.O. by the Kindle!

The third generation Kindle has officially beaten out the book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to become the best-selling product in Amazon history.

Maybe U should consider investing in a Kindle too, Harry.

We've seen the size of those monstrous wizard books…wouldn't you prefer to go with the electronic versions? LOLs.

The New York Times Is Giving E-Books Their Own Own Best-Seller List!

Filed under: Tech Talk

the-new-york-times-is-giving-e-books-their-own-best-seller-list

Wow! This is a pretty huge step!

Because of the growing popularity and sales of e-books, The New York Times announced yesterday that they will be publishing a best-seller list in both digitally published fiction and non-fiction!

Janet Elder, the editor of news surveys and election analysis for The New York Times, explains:

“We’ve had our eye on e-book sales since e-books began. It was clear that e-books were taking a greater and greater share of total sales, and we wanted to be able to tell our readers which titles were selling and how they fit together with print sales.”

Sam Tanenhuas, the editor of the Book Review, continues:

“To give the fullest and most accurate possible snapshot of what books are being read at a given moment you have to include as many different formats as possible, and e-books have really grown, there’s no question about it.”

Wow! It's amazing to us that so many people have opted for the iPad and Kindle in lieu of a good ole' hard copy!

We don't know…there's something about actual print on paper that we can't seem to tear ourselves away from!

What do U think?? Do U prefer e-books to regular books?
