Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight gets US price

Barnes & Noble has announced the official US pricing for the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight eReader. This eReader is notable because it has an integrated backlight allowing users to read in the dark without an external light source. Traditionally the inability to read in the dark has been the big downside to E Ink displays.

Barnes & Noble is selling the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight $119 in the US. The tablet weighs under 7 ounces and despite the backlight is one of the lightest tablets on the market.

What Business Schools Don’t Get About MOOCs

Source: Tom Davenport

There’s trouble in business-education paradise. Recent news stories have described significant dissension at Harvard Business School about MOOCs (massive open online courses).  For the uninitiated, MOOCs are courses that are taught over the internet, and which are usually open to all comers.  In the spirit of full disclosure, I recently taught a MOOC for IESE Business School on the Coursera platform.  I’m also a graduate of ...

About the Geek Mind

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.
