OverDrive Review: A Free E-Book Lending Service That Requires Some Patience

recode.net — When you think of public libraries, what comes to mind? Maybe memories of the days you used to go there as a kid, or perhaps images of stacks and stacks of musty old books. Whatever the picture might be, I'm guessing that you don't see the age-old institution as a resource for e-books.

Will You Use Skype’s New Messaging App, Qik? Depends on Your Friends.

recode.net — It's a mobile messaging world, and Skype, which claims 300 million users of its VoIP service, has just joined the club. Last week, the company introduced Skype Qik, a mobile app that lets users send videos up to 42 seconds long to a friend or a group of friends.

An E-Reader That ‘Beats Hardcovers’?

hereandnow.wbur.org — Amazon's new e reader, the Kindle Voyage has been getting rave reviews, with The New York Times' Farhad Manjoo saying, "It offers the visual clarity of printed text with the flexibility of an electronic device." But is there still a market for a single-use device?

Kindle Voyage Sets a High Bar for a High Price

recode.net — If someone asked you to describe your ideal reading environment, you might picture a calm, quiet place with soft lighting, few distractions and a cushiony chair. Can you picture your ideal e-reader? Amazon thinks its latest Kindle Voyage is the crème de la crème of electronic reading.

What to Expect From Google Earnings Today

recode.net — It's still about mobile. Google reports its third-quarter financial results after the market closes on Thursday, and since the company doesn't break out its ad sales figures for mobile versus desktop, the important metrics to look for are its cost-per-click rates - what advertisers pay when users click on search ads - and its paid click growth - money Google gets when people click on ads that appear on its sites and its partner sites.

CBS Launches Live and On-Demand Web Video Subscription Service

recode.net — Yesterday, HBO announced plans to sell Web video subscriptions. Today, CBS. CBS? Yup, CBS: The broadcaster is also getting into the digital video subscription business, with an offering that will let users watch almost any show it airs, live or on demand, on a variety of devices.

Moto Hint Bluetooth Earbud Finally Gets It Right

recode.net — If you've ever seen someone talking to himself before realizing he's actually on a phone call using a Bluetooth headset, you ain't seen nothin' yet. I mean that literally: You can't see this thing I'm about to describe - not unless you're standing next to someone and looking in that person's ear.

Google May Ease Limits on Android Customization Over Time

recode.net — Google is taking its versatile Android operating system into new places, into cars and watches and TVs. As part of that process, it's also severely curtailing the degree to which hardware makers can tinker with the core parts of the software.

Can a Virtual Therapist Keep the Peace on the Way to Mars?

recode.net — Take a group of perfectly nice people, squeeze them into a tiny space for a few months and things tend to get a little tense. It's a reliable rule of reality television and space voyages alike.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review: Refined, But Not Radical

recode.net — When Samsung launched its Galaxy Note about two years ago, the smartphone became the butt of many jokes. It was a good idea, in theory - a new style of handset designed to combine a big, tablet-size display with a more portable, smartphone-like form factor - but it was generally dismissed because of its comically large size.
