It has been a while since we’ve had a conversation about technology here. At present I use a number of devices that are antiquated if not obsolete, including a laptop which I rarely use because the battery doesn’t charge and the hard drive freezes if it is on for too long. And so I hope to at least take a close look at some more recent developments in the near future, with the aim of eventually replacing items that are bordering on becoming junk with new ones that are at least as useful if not indeed more so.
I’d value input from those who have used various newer devices and have opinions about them. People who have used netbooks or Kindles, for instance, and those who have used an iPod touch for reading ebooks or running Bible-related software. If one gets an iPod touch, would it mean you have no real need for a Kindle? How well does the new Kindle deal with pdfs of various sorts? Can you use it for writing effectively or does it let you down if you use it for anything other than its primary purpose of reading books? And when it comes to software or apps for Hebrew, Greek, Syriac and other Biblical, ancient, and foreign-language texts, which ones have you tried and which have you been most satisfied with?I presume that sharing such experiences can benefit not only me but a wide audience, and so I invite anyone with any knowledge or experience of any technology current or soon-to-appear (like the iPad) to speak their mind. Let’s talk tech!
