While reading Infinite Jest, I looked up a word in the dictionary only to discover that the example sentence in the definition on my Kindle was exactly the same sentence I had just read in the book. [more inside]
I just upgraded to a Pantech Jest 2 from Verizon (prevoiusly had the Jest) and every couple of days I get banner ads on my home screen. My old phone never did this. Am I purse dialing into web access by mistake, or are these sudden ads common/acceptable all of a sudden?
I just bought a B&N Nook Color, on which I'll read the NY Times and some Dickens and Trollope. I'd like to download and read "Infinite Jest" on it too, as I've not been motivated to read my five-pound paperback copy. But what's the simplest, cleanest way to flip back and forth between the IJ narrative and the notes on the Nook? Do you have a system? Can you keep both places marked and flip easily? Or what? (I'm pretty tech-phobic but trying to overcome.) Thanks.
