Because I buy no contract phones that are GSM I am part of the only real competitive network in North America. ATT vs T-Mobile. ATT's 3 billion contribution to my plan now means I pay $50 (1st line) + $30(2nd line) + $10(3rd) all with data, text and talk. Previously 2 lines cost me $175 under contract. Thank you ATT.

The problem is not the Kindle. Publishers (particularly scholarly publishers ) have not adopted epub format. PDFs do not reflow to screen size therefore they will NEVER be useful in devices of variable screen sizing. Sorry. There is no reason you should not be able to get you publications in a format that would be more convenient to read on any eReader. Check put http://elife.elifesciences.org... and down load the epub version of the article. I wish plosone.org had the good sense to provide an epub versions but they are too far behind the times.

Comment: What is so difficult about programing? (Score 1) 299

First programing in itself is not difficult to learn. Evidenced by the massive number of self taught programmers myself included. Second given how rapid technology is accelerating programming as a useful skill could very well be obsolete is 15-20 years. Finally critical thinking, curiosity and a willingness to take risks are timeless. Teach your children well (give them values). They will be better off.
