I ran across one a few days ago though that has the potential to completely change my mobile lifestyle, and that’s definitely worth a mention. The PowerQube [...]

It looks like the wait for official Harry Potter ebooks will soon come to an end. I somehow missed this news when it first came out a couple of weeks ago, but I stumbled across the ebook listings for the series while I was looking for something new to check out from my local public [...]
