[picappgallerysingle id="3470167"] With a number of people having (or looking for) new mobile phones for Christmas or in the January sales, and people reflecting on the technological advances of the last decade (ignoring the debate about whether or not we're actually in a new decade!), I've read a few blog posts recently about the great features of mobile devices and how useful they are. All this talk about mobile devices reminded me of a blog post I've been intending to write for a while so here it is. Regular readers of the blog will know that I splashed out on an iPod...

This is the second of a series of posts about the iPhone/iPod Touch. With the recent announcement of the Kindle 2 from Amazon, I thought it was a good time to talk about e-books.

When I bought my iPod Touch in December I was keen to integrate that to help increase my productivity which it did to an extent but it had the distinct disadvantage of requiring wifi to do most things. The release of the iPod Touch software 2.0 and the App Store has changed all that though...
