Barnes and noble announces Nook, with touchscreen

..this time B&N goes for a E-ink screen..

Barnes and noble which have become big players in the e-reader business have just announced their third version of the Nook. This one with a new e-ink screen which will improve the usual, refresh time, and contrast. Also its backside is made of a rubbery material wich should feel great in your hands. You can preorder it on B&n’s website for 139¤.

The new B&N Nook

The new Nook has a redesigned home screen with your current reading list and suggested titles. It also adds a few features like FastPage Zoom forward, which lets you jump to any page in a title, and (finally) displays the number of pages left to go. Inside is Android 2.1 and 2GB of storage, which can be expanded using the microSD slot, and a WiFi radio — but sadly no 3G. You’ll also be able to share quotes, lend books, and update your status on social networks using Nook Friends, which debuted last year with the Nook Color.


Metal iphone 4 backside replacement

The iPhone 4′s glass backing is remarkably fragile—even moreso than the other iPhone models. If you’d like to keep it protected without making the phone bulky with a case, consider replacing the back with this metal back cover instead.

For a mere $12, you can save your iPhone from accidents by replacing the back cover with this nice, beveled metal one. There are, of course, others floating around the net, but tech blog Unplgged recommends this one for its low price, beveled back, and super easy installation—all it takes is a bit of unscrewing (and it looks pretty darn good too). I still wouldn’t be too casual about dropping your iPhone, but if you’re prone to accidents and don’t like big cases, this is another great way to go. Also there are cheaper ones on dealextreme.com, actually there you can order white backsides. If you feels like being the first one to have a white iphone 4.
