Dell gets a frightful haircut in Q1


Re: Dell's laptops are shingles

well, if you were smart enough to purchase warranty and make use of Dell's ProSupport things would be right on track. So who's at fault here?

Sony PRS-505 Reader e-book



The main point of not having a backlight is so you can save your eyesight for a little longer!!

You can buy an small clip-on light to attach to this device, check out Amazon and eBay.


to the editor of the Register Hardware

If you guys actually started reading manuals of the devices you test your reviews would be so much more accurate...

"Did we say reasonable speed? Well, for moving from one page to the next, yes. But for flipping back from say page 235 to page 45 because you forgot what one character said, or to flip back and forth to any maps you have forgotten to bookmark - vital if The Lord of the Rings ever comes out as an eBook - it's really just a little slow and cumbersome."

Well, those 10 little numbered buttons on the right side of the device are there for a reason - so you can type in any page number and jump right to it without much of a wait! There is also "bookmarks" feature button, can mark pages and revert back to them at a touch of a button (or 2) :P

All I can say - Read The Freaking Manual ! :))))

This is a great little device, I have been using it since April 2008 and it's been a joy all the way, especially during long flights!

Can't wait for the next version due out in October 2008!!!


@Rik Hemsley

Hey, there are plenty of free books published on the web, I have yet to pay for a book since I got the device for $300 from the US.

Watch out for the new 3rd version of Sony Reader coming out in October 2008!

Been using Sony eReader for the last 4 month

This is a great little eReader, beats all other offering on the market by a mile. I got it from US for $300, has 2 memory slots for SD and MemoryStick, plays MP3, does not destroy your eyesight cause no backlight. Plenty off eBooks and audio books available for free on the web and torrent networks.

This is a very nice shareware to use with Sony eReader:


And plenty of ebooks available for free on websites like this one:


Dell hits all the wrong keys – again

Dell swings axe at five per cent of EMEA staff


All makes sense...

Logically thinking experienced people are getting paid the most money.

Customers give Dell the finger over keyboard screw-up


A lot of silly comments here...

"Makes you want to buy an Apple..." - excuse me, what makes you buy an Apple? Two thousand quid burning a hole in your pocket?

Dell is making company leaner and better, which is great! There are plenty of jobs on the market for those who have any IT skills. So stop bitching, if you can't stand the heat - get out of the kitchen.

I would say - "fortunately PRS-505 has no wireless "!

I would say - fortunately PRS-505 has no wireless !

It's the best device I ever used, perfect for storing and reading books.

It serves the purpose just rigth, I really don't want to see RSS feeds or any other internet crap when I am on the road. Plenty of that on my office PC....

If you want colour you will get backlight and glare - no thanks!
