    I, for one, welcome our robot overlords

    And the robot overlords pop up in a new location while we're not watching: Siri is the iPhone's voice-responsive, virtual assistant.

    Read any good books lately?

    There's actually a BUSINESS reason why this occurs. Imagine, that the author had a story they wanted to tell, which ran roughly 230K words. Now, consider that there's a 'sweet spot' of words to cost which makes the difference between a HC version of the book being profitable and being...

    Read any good books lately?

    Two sites that may interest you. The first is eReaderIq ( it shows not only the free books available for the Kindle, but also allows you to plug in a list and your email address and it will inform you when they drop in price. The second is Baen's
