- I'm a little behind the times, and I have yet to jump on the tablet bandwagon. I love to read, and was thinking about getting a Kindle Paperwhite. My android phone is good for most things but I don't like reading on the relatively little screen, and I think it would be much more pleasant to read on the Paperwhite.

- Does it have any impact on warranty coverage if you upgrade RAM on your own? I've seen how high the repair costs can be on a Mac Pro, and I don't want an unpleasant surprise later if something goes wrong with it.

- I updated the Kindle app earlier this week, and when I was getting ready to do a little bedtime reading last night all of my books were gone, my bookmarks were erased, and the settings were changed! What's going on, was Amazon hacked, was I hacked, or was the update corrupted? Any ideas on what happened?

- JOiseau answers Re: What's the best alternative to Apple's Maps on the iPhone 5 until Apple gets things sorted out?I've never used Navigon, but it sounds like a good alternative. TomTom would be my first choice, in part because I used TomTom GPS navigation for years before there were smartphones, and it has always served me well. It updates maps automatically, and is very similar in use to the GPS devices that are built into cars.

- I got a mass email from one of our vendors warning that their WordPress blog had been compromised using the "Blackhole exploit" and that they apologized for any spam that may have been sent as a result. It didn't go into any details beyond that. We have a WordPress blog as well and I'm not sure how the Blackhole exploit works.

- JOiseau answers Re: What's the point of Jelly Bean when there are relatively few Android devices even running Ice Cream Sandwich?I see your point, but on the other hand, I guess I embrace a little bit of the Field of Dreams approach, i.e. if you build it they will come. This hasn't exactly turned out to be a truism for Android OS devices, though. I just did a little search online, and there are still NEW devices being sold that are running 2.2 Froyo!
