Amazon Kindle Fire vs. iPad 2

Amazon published this Kindle Fire vs. iPad 2 page shortly after its announcement on September 28, 2011. I thought it was just a temporary promo, but it turns out that Amazon is still pushing it heavily.

Marco has put together a dead set brilliant feature-comparison checklist which gives a much truer picture of how the Kindle Fire lines up against the iPad 2.

FWIW I really love my Kindle Keyboard and think that it has the better reading experience when compared to the iPad 2, however for EVERYTHING else the iPad 2 wins hands down. No competition.

★ Scotch Whiskey Review: Laphroaig 10 Year Old

I just got my hands on, read as bought, a bottle of Laphroaig 10 Year Old Scotch Whisky and I figured that it might make a nice first review in the new Scotch Whiskey category on my website.
To say it’s peaty and smokey is an understatement, boy is it smokey! There is also a slight bit of a medicinal smell / taste to it initially, finishing off with a little bit of a hint of an ocean-y, seaweed-y, salt-y taste on the back of the palate.

It’s quite nice indeed. Definitely a good one to keep in the cabinet for random evenings with experienced Scotch Whiskey drinkers.

For the techie types – it’s a 10 year old single malt, from the Islay region of Scotland, weighs in at around 40.0%, and is cork sealed.

Roughly $70.00 a bottle.

★ iTunes Music Match now live in Australia

For $34.99 you can subscribe to iTunes Music Match and upload your library to Apple’s servers allowing you to easily sync stuff between your added computers, it also lets you download higher bit rate versions of your ripped music.

I’ve only got a small library on my MacBook Pro, everything else is on an iTunes ‘server’ at home, so it didn’t take very long for it to scan and upload all my music.
