I guess the Snow White and the seven dwarfs were to be written in modern times and the old mean witch happened to use the iPhone, she would have gone about saying this:
I was up talking to a friend a couple of days on how writing about Facebook was the biggest pain in life and the adverse psychological problems it got me into. But you can’t help not talking about it, given that the third of everyone online is on the social network. Plus Facebook has more to do with simply connecting people, its more to do with their lifestyles and their privacy, which is the biggest concern.

The future of books lies in ebook readers one reason why so many players are stepping in the arena of rolling out devices to read and publish books to. Amazon started it off with its Kindle, Apple has taken it to the next level with the iPad and the battle continues.

Bug, scam go away
When you talk about Apple, and more importantly the wide range of computing devices it has to offer you aren’t just confined to traditional computing. I mean writing codes, editing, playing games or even browsing; anything to do with Apple eventually become a way of life. It revolutionized music with the iPod, the mobile genre with its iPhone and now the next step ahead with their iPad. All these products have almost everything to offer the users out there and while the price me be significantly higher than other similar devices but the products are worth every penny you pay.
When you talk about being a part of the Web 2.0 or the mobile arena, speed and convenience is what should be readily available. Same should be applied to buying books, those academic or general books on any subject. Book.ly is another startup that ensures that a college student finds the books he is looking for at one place at the most convenient of rates.
Here’s the catch, Book.ly promises to assist students by finding their required books and save up to 40% in price. Now that is a huge sum you save given the fact an average college student would spend over $700 on books each year and that saves him $280, which is quite a big amount. Now, this isn’t some random cheap bookstore aggregator that gives you links to external stores where you can buy books, rather it partners with numerous clubs, campus organizations in a university. The partnership is based on profit sharing, where Book.ly shares up to 20% of profits with a charity or even the club itself.
