The dating service you’d literally die for – We pretty much hate ghost romances around here. JR Ward’s book with Jane? Disaster. Kresley Cole’s Naomi? Not as good as we’d have liked. Ghosts are better suited as plot protein – something that agitates the characters and heightens tension. But maybe we’re being unfair and discriminatory. GhostSingles.com is here to address the lovelorn wisps who are hanging around, perhaps because of an unresolved romantic conflict. Ghosts need love too.The Daily Dot
Hudl: With Tesco’s tablet, you get a lot of bang for your buck – If you live in the UK, you might want to give Tesco’s Hudl tablet a look. It’s got the interior hardware of a high class tablet and it adds in the convenience of an SD slot and a HDMI port that allows for streaming. “Given the Nexus 7 will set you back £199, you could be forgiven for thinking that the extra £80 you’re paying is going on the aforementioned spec-enhancements, but the Hudl actually has a few tricks of its own up its sleeve. These come in the form of a micro-SD slot that lets you expand the storage up to 48GB in total and – drum roll – a Micro-HDMI slot. Yes, you can hook your Hudl up to your TV and watch movies stored on your device, or stream from Tesco-owned Blinkbox, Google Play or any other similar service.”The Next Web
Apple Files Expected Appeal of E-Book Injunction – Apple filed an appeal against the permanent injunction and verdict filed against it by the District Court. Simon & Schuster and Macmillan also appeal the permanent injunction on the grounds that the ruling against Apple acts to limit agency agreements for five years instead of the two that the parties had agreed to in their settlement. That’s the risk with verdicts – you have the potential for worse odds than in a settlement. The AllThingsD article notes that legal scholars believe that the likelihood of Apple succeeding in appellate (higher) court is low. That’s what we’ve thought here at Dear Author too. Don’t expect a quick ruling. John Paczkowski – News – AllThingsD
