If you bought the iPad just for its book readin’ capabilities, then Pandigital’s upcoming Novel may have you wishing Apple had a better return policy. The upcoming $200 e-reader isn’t the prettiest or fastest, but it will hold its own for its low price.
With its 7-inch full-color LCD display, Wi-Fi and the ability to run apps, the look and feel of the Novel may have you thinking of Barnes & Noble’s Nook. There’s more to that similarity, in fact — the Novel uses the Barnes & Noble e-book store, too.
What the Novel doesn’t have is the cellular [...]
Kim Jong Il, the “Dear Leader” of North Korea, does not fly when he travels. Instead, he travels around the country in one of six armored trains, stopping at any of the 19 private stations reserved just for him in the country. Not just any trains, either — Kim Jong Il has had them decked out so much that they resemble something like a military command center mixed with a luxury hotel.
From the LA Times:
Kim’s train is equipped with conference rooms, an audience chamber and bedrooms, with a pair of Mercedes-Benzes on standby, not to mention satellite phone connections and flat-screen [...]
