Amazon just released a version of Kindle for the iPhone. So now I can read all those eBooks that are only available in Kindle format without shelling out the extra money for a 3rd device (who really needs a Pocket PC, iPhone, and a dedicated eBook reader like the Kindle even if they do read as many eBooks as I have recently?). Everyone is reporting on this - see sources at: Techdirt, VentureBeat, ZDNet, PC World, NY Times, CNet Crave, CNet Fully Equiped, and SFGate.

Spectrum 16 awards
have been announced for art.

Blood Ties is finally coming to dvd
this June.

Random House is launching a free eBook library with 5 pdf books by Naomi Novik, Robin Hobb, Harry Turtledove, Kim Stanley Robinson, and T.A. Pratt. (Now that I have Red Mars as a hardcover, an audiobook, and an ebook, will I finally get around to moving it off the To Be Read pile and actually reading it?) Per's article, they will make the books available on their site, through Stanza (for the iPhone), and other content portals.

Brian Fuller has expressed an interest in making a new Star Trek TV series in the campy 60s style.

Another device is being developed to play internet-sourced TV on the TV. I wonder if they will have the same rights problems that Hulu has had.
