Barnes and Noble e-Reader versus Amazon Kindle for PC

Barnes and Noble e-Reader versus Amazon Kindle for PC

I have both a Barnes and Noble e-reader for PC as well as a Kindle e-reader for PC. I wish I had a Kindle. Once upon a time I wished I had a Barnes and Noble Nook for comparison purposes, but I have to say this is no longer the case. I have an extensive library of Kindle for PC books. It is a collection I've been building for just over a year. Some of the books I purchased for little to nothing, but a great many of them I purchased at a price that wasn't much cheaper than traditionally published books. Considering the current state of affairs with Barnes and Noble and their possible upcoming sale, I wouldn't want to own much more than the hundred or so books I already own on my Nook for PC. I don't want to find myself missing valuable [Read the rest of this article...]

Digital Media Overload

Digital Media Overload

Yet despite the opportunities presented by digital media for the propagation of knowledge and information, it is becoming increasingly evident that a new schema of intellectual disenfranchisement is occurring at a rapid pace. While viewpoints out of the mainstream, once considered 'radical' or 'extremist,' are more widely available than once before, there is a growing perpetuation of what I describe as a regurgitation -- or echo chamber as my colleague said -- of the same hackneyed issues and events that are played out in the internet's version of the '24 hour news cycle.'

Men of Good Fortune…

Men of Good Fortune…

While we indeed have many more options as far as diversity of information and rational ideological discourse is concerned, we are nonetheless still in a mode of reaction at all times. Despite the fact that critique from media outlets once without a voice is readily available, it is drowned out by the vast amount of advertising, infotainment and self-manufactured division by those who are far too busy participating in virtual shouting fests with those who are on the opposite end of the political divide.

Teva Pharmaceuticals and Poor Quality Generic Drugs

Teva Pharmaceuticals and Poor Quality Generic Drugs

With Teva taking over such a large portion of the generic drug market, this could be a scary proposition for those who depend on affordable drugs for treating a variety medical conditions. The FDA, the federal administration responsible for overseeing the safety and effectiveness of these medications has continued to turn a blind eye to the issues of Teva -- and every other drug manufacturer with deep pockets. Considering the FDA's history of corruption and the fact that it is made up largely of former pharmaceutical executives and representatives, their apathy toward consumers in favor of these corporations should come as no surprise.

Farmers: The Modern Serfs of Agribusiness

Farmers: The Modern Serfs of Agribusiness

The domination of global agribusiness continues to spread throughout the world as agriculture is being taken over by American Agricultural Corporations who have the full backing and support of our taxpayer-funded military which continues to train armies in the peripheral world to overthrow any leaders who are not willing to have their natural resources plundered through our system of Corporate Imperialism.

Net Neutrality for the Future of Information

Net Neutrality for the Future of Information

Despite hysterics from those officials in the pockets of the giant telecoms, net neutrality legislation will not hinder nor censor anything on the internet. Quite the opposite as it will guarantee that information WILL NOT be censored through arbitrary bandwidth restrictions and special “high speed channels” for content approved solely by Google. If we fail to stop the telecom industry from squashing net neutrality legislation, we will all be at risk of having only corporate-approved information available to us, much like television – with more ads.
