Crave, the Gadget Blog

I, Crave – Crave is Cnet.com’s gadget blog.

Crave says: “The name says it all. Crave is our blog about gorgeous gadgets and other crushworthy stuff.”

Hat Tip Crave for what’s below.

Here’s a current sampling, including information about Sony’s newest electronic book reader. I’ll consider an “EBR” when I can purchase one that smells like an old book in some antiquarian shop in some street with too long a name in Wales. Well … not really. I’ll compromise at Atticus Books so that I can feed the mind within a short walk of the Harbord Bakery. Mens sane in corpore sane, right?

Sony’s new PRS-505 Reader is available in silver and dark blue and retains a $300 price tag.

  2. Which is to say: last week’s Friday Fillip.

  3. OK, I forgot. I was misled by the pretty pictures. But you didn’t mention Atticus Books or Harbord Bakery, both of which are always worth mentioning even if one has to concoct a reason.

  4. Of course the question remains, is the Sony reader really sexier than a librarian?

  5. The Sony reader is sexier than a librarian?

    My apologies to the profession. Someone at Sony obviously caught a gander at my knees during a beach visit this past summer. Seems a shame that I’m taking down the entire profession because of one instance of bad judgment.
