starwarsrogueone

The official release of upcoming feature film Star Wars: Rogue One is still 2 1/2 months away, but if you want to add to your vast collection of new-in-box collectibles, based on the new flick, you can get on board right away. In fact, Amazon.ca is having an early celebration with a preemptive strike of an entirely new line of products based on Lucasfilm’s first stand-alone Star Wars feature.

The movie isn’t even out yet but you can still get more stuff to put on your shelf. There isn’t five or 10 or even 20 new products, there are actually over 80, consisting of toys, games and even books based on the new movie, story and all of its characters. Some of them include Jyn Erso, K-2SO, and the new Imperial Death Trooper (shown above with Rebel Commando Pao). Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

Review: Latest Kindle Paperwhite right for you?

As an avid iPad user, I never thought I’d ever have a need for an e-reader until I actually spent some time with one. I love books, all kinds of books, physical print books and e-books and when I need to read the latter, I always have an iPad or iPhone within arms reach.

The new incarnation still features a 6-inch greyscale display with e-ink, but it’s now 300 ppi (pixels per inch), up from 212 ppi with a resolution of 1430 x 1080, twice the number of pixels than before. They’ve also doubled the storage memory to 4GB.  [Read more…]

How to apply the Easy Rule of Life, Review of Look Ma Life’s Easy

EDMONTON, AB, Dec. 1, 2012/ Troy Media/ – As an avid fan of Ernie Zelinski since his original release of the The Joy Of Not Working through toHow to Retire Happy Wild and Free and having read and re-read many of Ernie’s books over the years, I eagerly awaited the arrival of Look Ma, Life’s Easy.

 

While virtually all of Zelinski’s books have had his signature style – offering inspiring and thought provoking nuggets of wisdom and life lessons – this one is different. It’s written in a story style, in the form of a parable, a fable in some ways reminiscent of Robin Sharma’s, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, but still uniquely Zelinski.
