3.0 out of 5 stars Good protection, questions on longetivity, April 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nice case in appearance. Fit is snug but there seem to be little gaps at the top and bottom on the Kindle Voyage. Doesn't hurt anything but looks a little off.

Sadly after using mine for 4 months now, some of the rubbery edge material is peeling off a bit. It protects well but will need replacing every 6 months or so I worry due to this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do it yourself for much less, June 22, 2010
Do yourself a favor and download the "Calibre" software for ebook readers. If you subscribe to the print edition, it will automatically login, download all the content, create an ebook and either email it to you or transfer over the sync cable to your Kindle (or Nook or whatever). Total cost is usually < $100 if you shop online for the print and online (web-based) edition. I'd love to buy this even if it cost a bit more, but why reward their awful product?

5.0 out of 5 stars The web, post-Google, June 2, 2008
Sarah's book does a good job covering a portion of Silicon Valley in the post-Google era. Starting from the lineage of the early PayPal team, the author traces the personalities behind Facebook, Slide, Yelp, LinkedIn, and Digg (among others) to define the growth of the newest entrepreneurs in SF and the Valley.

If you enjoy the inside stories of Valleywag, you'll enjoy the personality-focused style of this book. The author cultivates her access to these personalities to capture much of the personality of each - this keeps the book engaging and does a lot to explain how these companies are run and why, for example, Facebook has walked away from so many buyout offers.

The book is also interesting in that it mostly ignores the current web titans, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft, instead explicitly following this newer generation of entrepreneur who can launch and build huge audiences on the smallest of budgets. This is refreshing to see - there are too many Google/Yahoo/Microsoft books in the market already.

My major complaint with the book is the relative centricity around just a few characters, primarily Jay Adelson, Kevin Rose, Mark Zuckerberg and Max Levchin. The Digg guys in particular really haven't achieve enough to warrant their large focus in the book. The story is weakend by the way too in-depth focus on Adelson in particular, who comes off looking entirely narcissistic and foolish in his time running Digg and that forgettable web video company he runs.

The author's style conjures up a more timely Robert X. Cringely and can certainly deserves spot on the bookshelf next to Accidental Empires or Nudist on the Late Shift.
