Great review on the new Kindle 2 out on Engadget. Their take on the Kindle 2, “The buy-in for the unit itself is $359 — not cheap — and everything you put on it is going to cost you a little bit more. After a while, that can start to add up, and we’re not convinced it makes sense for just anyone. Ultimately, it boils down to a question of needs, because — like the first Kindle — the Kindle 2 doesn’t represent such a sea change in technology that we think everyone should run out and buy it.”

Posted this great video in-depth review on the difference of Kindle 1 and 2 from ZDNet Mobile Gadgeteer by Matthew Miller.  Interesting in knowing more? check out his other articles on the Kindle 2 at his blog, link here.

Late Night Out in Wanchai

Met the legendary Expat@Large last night with Spike at Wanchai and had some real fine wine and tapas at Uno Mas, the old Klong down at Lockhart.  Great place serving excellent Spanish food and drinks.  According to Spike, this becomes his new home and he loves it especially when there are seats available out on the balcony.

Had some fine Spanish beer out of a 750ml bottle (forgot the name, will go back and check it out).  The waitress served it out of a champagne ice bucket and we drank it out of these real nifty small cups (reminds me of the Chinese bowls I drank beer out of  down at the food stalls in North Point Market).  Expat@Large actually took a pic of the cups, :).

Loving the place and definitely will be back for more.
