Suppose I'm thinking of purchasing an e-book reader (or an iPad/tablet), and my primary hesitation is that I don't want to buy a bunch of e-books in a format that (1) will someday be useless or unreadable or (2) will lock me into a specific brand of hardware forever. What do I need to know? [more inside]

Offline Blog Reader?

Offline blog reader? I've backed up my blog into an XML file. I'd like to read it offline. Open Office has XML support but this is not an efficient solution. There are online solutions--importing the xml file into a new blog, for example--but I'd just like to read while offline from the xml file. Is there a program that will permit this?

DVD transplant

The DVD writer in my laptop seems to be dying. Although it can still read pre-written DVDs and CDs, it has problems reading home-burnt DVDs. Am I right in thinking that if I buy an external (USB) DVD writer, I can open the enclosure, swap over the mechanisms and effectively end up with: 1. A new writer installed in my laptop, and 2. A slightly dodgy external DVD reader?

Help me Read AskMeFi in Google Reader

Is there a keyboard shortcut that opens a Google reader item in a new firefox tab without shifting the focus (with os x, if that matters)? The list of Google Reader shortcuts is here, and none of them seem to be able to open up an item in a new tab or window without also shifting the focus away from the reader. If this doesn't come standard, does anyone know of a plugin or extension that would add this functionality? Googling turned up nothing. Thanks!
