Loose-leaf South African legal textbooks looking for a new home

I have a number of loose-leaf legal textbooks which I don’t need anymore and I would like to sell them as quickly as possible. None of these volumes are up to date and while I have a couple piles of updates, they may not be complete and certainly are not the most recent ones either. […]

Correlation between being gay and being a computer user?

I noticed this odd book section placement at Exclusive Books in Rosebank The Zone. Is this a trend?

20 things you can learn about browsers and the Web … from an ebook

I just came across this awesome ebook from the Google Chrome team titled “20 Things I Learned About Browsers and the Web“. One of the cool things about the book is that it is not downloadable but is rather coded in HTML 5. I haven’t read it yet but it looks like a goodie!

Amazon’s Kindle service […]

Want an eReader? The iPad probably isn't for you.

I have been resisting the urge to speculate about the iPad since it was announced. I have a history of seizing upon the latest Apple/Nokia gear and proclaiming it to be the next best thing since the printed word (or the last Apple/Nokia gear). I have generally been wrong about just how awesome the device […]

Getting some more focus with OmniFocus

I really like the “Getting Things Done” methodology and while I am still reading the book I think I have picked up enough of the methodology to create a fairly workable productivity workflow.
