The Entourage Edge is technically supposed to be written as the enTourage eDGe, but typing it out that way is really annoying. The Edge is the world's first dualbook, a device which combines the functionality of an e-reader, tablet netbook, notepad, and media player into one, two-screened device. Think the Courier, but slightly less awesome and 100% more real.
One of the Edge's sides is a 9.7" E-Ink display, while the other is an LCD screen that acts like a traditional 10.1" tablet PC. The LCD screen also includes a keyboard, and both screens are connected to the other. If you open up a link in one of the E-Books you are reading, it will open on the LCD screen. You can also select, drag, and drop names from the E-Ink side into a search engine over on the LCD side. Pretty awesome for students.Entourage Systems is working on putting out their own E-Book store, which currently has over 200,000 trade books and one million free public domain books, in addition to magazines and other periodicals. The Edge will be available in February, 2010 for $490.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
