I'm sure most of you remember last year's Kindle debacle, when Amazon deleted copies of 1984 from users' machines. Now I've heard that Amazon can also track the highlight function, and stores the information of how users read. Is this true? Are there other Kindle-spylike things that Amazon can do/is doing?

Three kids, two weeks, one car: Toronto to San Francisco vacation, or "if you like it so much then quit your job!"
Late-March roadtrip from Toronto to San Francisco, or wherever we end up by the time we have to head back. We've got two weeks, or sixteen days if we really need it. There's three of us. We currently have no plan and only vague notions of freedom on the road and driving into podunk towns to see giant balls of twine. As such, we have tons of logistics questions, which I will attempt to summarize: [more inside]

What books and movies feature fantasy or adventure in a nomadic culture? I just watched the movie Mongol, and it really reminded me of how much I enjoyed the enjoyed the Daenerys chapters in the Song of Ice and Fire series.

Looking for suggestions on how to sync documents between an iPhone and a laptop without an internet connection
Next week, I'm hitting the road with a laptop and an iPhone, but without any other means of internet access. I want to be able to create a formatted text document on my laptop, say for instance in Word, transfer it to my iPhone, and then use my iPhone to send it to my boss from the road. I don't want to have to rely on finding wireless. Does anyone know an app or non-Jailbreak workaround that'll let me sync documents using the iPhone's usb cord? It'd be great if there were a free solution to this, but I'd be ok with paying for a very cheap app that did it. I'm also hoping for something that's reliable! I know that's a bit of a tall order, but has anybody got suggestions?
Around 1984-85, about the time that "19" and "World Destruction" came out, MTV put in strong rotation a similar themed song.
