The Growing Popularity Of E-Singles & When Is A Library Book Not A Dewey Book?

The Growing Popularity Of E-Singles & When Is  A Library Book Not A Dewey Book?

Library Books That Are Not Dewey Books – They are Fiction!

The Growing Popularity Of E-Singles: E-Singles are a popular e-book format that is growing. Singles are shorter works than novels but longer works than articles. Singles are typically of a length that allows readers to sit down and read the work in one sitting. And the Singles format is growing in popularity because of the shortness of the works – it is easier to fit the time into the busy schedule to read a short book if you can read it in one sitting, because of their price – most singles are priced around $3.00 and because Singles are usually only issued in the digital e-book format so you can’t buy a printed copy of a Singles title. Additionally of note is the fact that although Singles can be put out by self-published independent authors they also being published by mainstream authors like Nelson DeMille, Lee Child and Diana Gabaldon and there is a growing trend for large media companies like the New York Times to publish the works of their journalists, particularly works in a series, as Shorts. Amazon and Barnes & Noble both sell Shorts. Amazon actually calls them “Shorts” (they used to call them Kindle Singles) and Barnes & Noble calls them “Nook Snaps” but by whatever name you chose to give them they are short, inexpensive works that can by quickly read when ever a reader as an hour or two to spare!

There are several articles listed online regarding this subject today and one of them is from the PaidContent site. It is titled Why 2012 Was The Year Of The E-Single­ – here’s the link to the article:

When Is A Library Book Not A Dewey Book? And a library book is not a Dewey book when it is not a non-fiction book! The Dewey Decimal Classification scheme is for non-fiction works only. Fiction titles can of course be found in all public libraries. And in our library fiction titles (in the adult reading level section) are broken down into eight subsections and they are:  Large Print (for general large print fiction), Large Print Mysteries, Large Print Westerns, Fiction (for general fiction titles), Mysteries (for all those stories where things go bump in the night!), Westerns (if  you like stories where cowboys and horses dot the terrain!), Short Story collections (these are all shelved by title and are just that – popular short stories housed in single volumes) and the combined Science Fiction and Fantasy section (these works include futuristic science based tales and tales of other dimensions and realities). And the accompanying photo shows you the spine labels of our non-Dewey fiction books – for each our seven fiction sections (adult reading level fiction sections that is – the children’s fiction sections we’ll leave for discussion another time!).

Have a great day!

Assorted Tech News For The Weekend Before Christmas

Hi everyone, I’m running out of Friday! And since I am not working at the library this weekend (although we are open our regular hours on both Saturday and Sunday!) and the library is closed on Monday and Tuesday in observance of Christmas Eve & Christmas Day…I thought I should at least alert library tech fans to a few interesting tech news articles.

This first article is titled Streaming Forward: Where Streaming Content Industry is Headed in 2013 and Beyond and discusses how the streaming of TV shows and movies over the Internet to a variety of portable devices and also to large screen HDTVs – is increasing – which is cool! Here is the link:

The second article is another streaming related article. This one, titled TV Everywhere, for Real, for Now: Nimble TV Start a New York Trial Run, discusses the new Nimble TV service. This new streaming video service will, theoretically, allow people to stream video content to all their streaming devices. And I say “theoretically” because this emerging way of accessing video, via the internet and on demand as compared to via cable companies, because more popular…Well…it rather upsets the status quo for cable TV companies so I wouldn’t be surprised to see a law suit launched against Nimble TV by one of the big cable or media companies. Here’s a link to an All Things D article on the subject:

The third article, from 9To5Mac, is titled Redbox Instant by Verizon iOS app live on App Store as $8/month streaming service launches and it is about – just that! The new Redbox service which might just give Netflix and Amazon a run for the streaming video money! Here’s the link:

And the fourth article is surprise! Yet again about streaming video! This time it is about the Hisense Pulse media streaming player with Google TV – and finally we are seeing some Google TV devices that are under $100. And even though the artilce states that the Hisense Pulse Google TV box is priced at $100 – as of right now (6:15 PM EST on Friday, December 21, 2012) the price on Amazon has gone down to $94.99. The artilce is from the Endgadget site and is called  Hisense Pulse With Google TV Priced At $100. Now Available From Amazon here’s the link:

Have a great holiday everyone!

And remember although the library is closed on 12/24, 12/25 and 1/1 – we are open our regular hours the rest of the time so if you’re in the mood to read some new books or watch some new DVDs this weekend or next stop on in! Linda R.

P.S. I found a review of the Hisense Pulse with Google TV on the Digital Trends site (they like it!)– here’s the link:

Tongue In Cheek Article On Tech Supplies You Should Have On Hand For The End Of Mayan Calendar Apocalypse & ALA Joins The Owners’ Rights Initiative

Tongue In Cheek Article On Tech Supplies You Should Have On Hand For The End Of Mayan Calendar Apocalypse: I came across a humorous article in the New York Times titled Be Ready for the End of the World, or an Emergency of a Lesser Sort. And in the article the author, Nick Bilton, manages to be both humorous and serious at the same time. He discusses the tech gadgets you should have on hand just in case the end of the Mayan calendar – which occurs tomorrow Friday, December 21, 2012 – should…well…bring about the end of the world. And then the author makes suggestions of tech items that would be helpful to keep on hand in case a natural disaster strikes your area. His suggestions include the usual items one would expect like extra battries, portable generators and a supply of canned foods but also some items I wouldn’t have thought of like a solar lamp, portable water filtration systems, Mylar thermal blankets and a wad of cash for the times when the power is out and you can’t use a credit or debit card to pay for items.

Here’s the link to the article:

ALA Joins The Owners’ Rights Initiative: The American Library Association (ALA) has joined forces with the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), The American Free Trade Association, eBay, Redbox, The Computer and Communications Industry Association, The American Association of Law Libraries and other groups to work toward the goal of allowing consumers to actual be able to buy digital content in the form of e-books, digital movies, digital television shows and music. The organization logo appears on their website and loudly proclaims their ideals on a bright red banner “You bought it. You own it. You have a right to re-sell it;” and that sums up the crux of the matter nicely! Because that is of course what happens with physical materials that you buy – you buy them, you own them and you can sell them or give them away as you wish. And right now you don’t actually own any digital content that you “buy.” Instead, as I’ve mentioned in previous blog postings, when you click that buy button on Amazon or iTunes to purchase a movie, television show or song you’re not actually buying the item itself you’re buying a license to access the content – it is as if the digital items are all software – say versions of Microsoft Word. And member of The Owners’ Rights initiative believe that digital content should be treated just like its physical counterparts; so just as you really own a printed book, DVD or CD that you purchase you should be able to really buy and own digital content and then give it to someone else or sell it later if you wish to.

Just to reiterate the point (and I’ll only step up on my soap box for a minute – I promise!) media companies have a current business model that supposes that digital content should be treated like software and thus consumers pay to access the content but they don’t own it and can’t sell it, give it away or easily loan it to someone else. ORI is working to change that business model and of course this entire issue is a gray one legal wise because the technology has changed so fast the copyright laws haven’t kept up with those changes. So the issue of the rights of owners of digital content is a huge one that you’ll be hearing a great deal about in the near future.

And ORI has a website where you can go and access a list of all the members of the ORI, sign up to receive the ORI newsletter or just see what the entire issue is all about in a more in-depth way. Here’s the link:

The 005s

The 005s

Dewey Decimal Favorites The 005s!

Among my favorite Dewey Decimal System numbers are the ones for those books in the 005.44 section – the ones that are categorized under the umbrella category of what OCLC*1 defines as “Operating systems for specific types of computers.” These are the books on how to use a specific operating system (i.e. Windows 7 or 8 or Mac OS). And going further down the shelves in the 005 section you come across the books on specific software applications (i.e. how to use Microsoft Word 2013, Microsoft Excel, Apple’s Pages software etc.).

Of course it is no big surprise that I like books about technology! And should I ever be interested in finding out more about an operating system (an “os” for short); I know I can go to that section and find easy to read books like “Teach Yourself Visually iPad,” “Teach Yourself Visually Office 2010” or even bigger kahuna books like David Pogue’s “Windows 7 The Missing Manual*2” or “Mac OS 10 Mountain Lion.” So I like the books in the 005 section!

And you can request any of those 005 books, or indeed any other books or materials from the library – 24/7/365 through StarCat – the library system’s online catalog! To access the catalog simply go to the SSCL website located at SSCLIBRARY.ORG, click on the Library Catalog link at the top of our home page and away you’ll go – surfing the titles available in all the libraries within the Southern Tier Library System.

Have a great day!

YouTube iOS App Debuts, Hulu Had A Great 2012 & Consumer Digital Content Rights (or the lack thereof):

YouTube iOS App Debuts: YouTube is debuting an iOS app today called YouTube Capture. So if you have an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad you’ll be able to take videos and gently edit them via the app and then easily upload them to YouTube.

Here’s the link to a MASHABLE article on the subject:

Hulu Had A Great 2012: Hulu had a great 2012 closing out the year with profits of $695 million dollars! Hulu’s streaming video service, Hulu Plus, has become increasingly popular and you can see why. The service costs $7.99 per month and offers unlimited streaming of catalog shows and streaming of episodes of series currently on the air for a limited time.

Here’s a link to a brief SlashGear article on the subject:

Consumer Digital Content Rights (or the lack thereof): The tech site PaidContent put out a cool article over the weekend titled The Right To Re-Sell: A Ticking Time Bomb Over Digital Goods. The article discusses the ramifications of the fact that consumers (and public libraries) cannot purchase digital content. When consumers (and public libraries) purchase a printed book, a DVD or music CD – those consumers own that physical item. They can re-sell it, loan it to a friend, use it to prop a window open or give it away and they need never lose access to it.

In contrast, with digital books, music and video you are only purchasing a license to access the content. You don’t own the e-books, digital music or videos you “buy.” You can’t legally sell those items nor give them to someone else and, at least in theory, the owning media/publishing company (or the vendor who sold you the access to the digital content) can electronically delete items you’ve purchased from them remotely as long as your tech device is connected to the Internet.

The reason for the difference in the rights between physical books, DVDs and music CDs and digital versions of those same items is because with printed works there is this cool thing called “The First Sale Doctrine” which allows you the purchaser of a printed book to own that book, loan it to someone else and/or sell it to someone else – and basically we need a Digital First Sale Doctrine to grant ownership rights to consumers for digital content. The PaidContent article offers a solid introduction to this subject; here’s the link:

Have a great day!

U.N. Communications Treaty, Kid’s Tablets, More On E-Books & New Apple Apps for A&E, The History Channel and The Lifetime Channel

U.N. Communications Treaty: The United Nations Telecommunications Committee has been meeting in Dubai this week and working on a new international communications treaty – the old one is really outdated having been agreed upon in the pre-Internet year of 1988. The largest bone of content is between countries like the United States, U.K. and Canada who are apposed to censoring Internet content and countries like China and Iran whose governments would prefer to have more control over the Internet. There are numerous articles online regarding this treaty and the subject of debate – whether or not to have a free, open and uncensored Internet across the globe – pasted below are links to two of them the first, from the New York Times, is titled U.S. Rejects Telecommunications Treaty and the second is from The Associated Press and is titled U.S. leads Western snub of U.N. telecoms treat. Here are the links:

Kid’s Tablets: The New York Times offers a short and nice article on the subject of which tablet you should buy for a kid on your holiday gift list. The categories discussed include Android Tablets, game console options, mainstream tablets and toy tablet options. Just FYI in case anyone is shopping for a tablet for children during this busy time of year! The article is titled A Trove of Tablets For Young Hands. Here’s the link:

MacObserver on E-Books (Part 4): And this particular link is to the fourth part of the MacObserver’s in-depth article on all the ins and outs of e-reading devices. And this article discusses, appropriately titled Everything About eBooks & eReaders, Pt 4: B&N Nook HD, offers practical information on the new Nook HD reading tablet. Here’s the link:

New Apple Apps for A&E, The History Channel and The Lifetime Channel: iPad, iPod and iPhone users will find some great new video apps in Apple’s App Store today. The new apps are companion apps for the television networks A&E, The History Channel and Lifetime. And viewers will be able to stream some full-length programs from each network and watch them on their mobile devices, or their TVs via the Apple TV media streaming player. Also of note, if you are an Xfinity TV you can access extra video content. Here’s a link to a 9 to 5 Mac article on the subject titled A&E, HISTORY, and Lifetime launch iPad apps with full episodes, additional content for Xfinity TV users:

Have a great weekend!

Amazon Instant Video App Now Available For iPhone & iPod Touch, Google Maps App Appears in Apple’s App Store & In Appreciation of Ravi Shankar

Amazon Instant Video App For iPhone & iPod Touch: Apple’s App Store now offers the Amazon Instant Video App for iPhone and iPod Touch. The iPad app has been available since the summer and now you can stream any movies or TV shows you purchase, or have previously purchased, from Amazon to your iPhone or iPod Touch. And if you’re an Amazon Prime member you can also stream and watch TV shows and movies from the Prime Library. Endgadget offers a brief article on this subject today titled Amazon Instant Video streaming app now available for iPhone and iPod Touch. And just a related note, the author of the article notes that if you own an Apple TV box you cannot currently use AirPlay to stream movies or TV shows from your iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone to your TV; and that is true. However, you can purchase a Roku media streaming player (they start at $49.99) and the Roku has a native app for the Amazon Instant Video Store – The Apple TV doesn’t although both have Netflix apps. So just FYI if anyone is out there is shopping for media streaming players! And here’s the link to the article:

Google Maps App Appears in Apple’s App Store: The TechCrunch article title says it all! It is titled “Shocker: Google Maps Surges To Top Free App In The App Store In Just One Night.” And considering the inaccuracy of the Apple maps app that replaced the Google Maps app as an out-of-the-box app on new iPads, iPods and iPhones one can understand why people are so pleased to have that very accurate Google Maps app back! The app is currently available in an iPhone/iPod Touch version only and not yet in an iPad version. So iPad owners can either use the iPhone app until the iPad app is ready or simply create a short cut app for the Google Maps webpage and place it on their iPad Start Screens.

Here’s the link to the TechCrunch article:

In Appreciation of Ravi Shankar: The great musician Ravi Shankar, who brought sitar music to the attention of western music fans with a little help initially from The Beatles, died yesterday at age 92. And NPR offers a nice overview of his life and work and access to several of his songs in an article titled 5 Essential Ravi Shankar Recordings, From ‘West Meets East’ to ‘West Eats Meat’ from the NPR Music site.

Microsoft Surface Tablet For Sale @ Best Buy & Staples, E-Book Sharing, Redbox Verizon Streaming Video Service & Apple TV Again!

Microsoft Surface Tablet For Sale @ Best Buy & Staples: The Microsoft Surface tablet will be available for purchase at Staples and Best Buy this week according to a ZDNet report. It is a good idea for Microsoft to sell the tablet through major retailers, other than the Microsoft Stores, because of course, there are many more Best Buy & Staples stores across the United States than Microsoft stores; and many people looking to purchase tech items do like to have the chance to check those tech times out in stores before they purchase them!

Here’s the link to the ZDNet article:

E-Book Sharing: Ownshelf is a new and free web service that launched in beta last Friday. This new service offers users cloud storage and the ability to easily share e-books with family and friends. The Mashable site offers an article on the subject that discusses the ease of using the service and the ways you can social network and share e-books via the service through Facebook. Rick Marazzani, the creator of the service says he is filling a need in people’s high tech reading lives. Specifically he says of e-books: “We don’t see what people read anymore because it’s not piled up on their coffee table, or on their bookshelf or their night stand,”” and “”Our goal is to replace that with something virtual, where you can get recommendations and say ‘Hey, try it, read it.'””

And of course no doubt the big publishing companies will object to this latest attempt at essentially an ownership of an e-book item – that is offering e-book fans the unrestricted ability to easily share e-books with friends and family members. The big publishing and e-book vendors have shown through their business model that they believe in licensing e-books to consumers instead of selling them those same e-books. And the difference seems to be just in the format as if you buy a print book you own it! And not surprisingly, being a librarian I happen to believe that you should actually be able to own the e-books you purchase, read them on any and all tech devices you own and lend them to whomever you wish just like you would with a paper book. And having gotten up on the consumer e-book rights (or lack thereof) soapbox – I’ll now get off it! Here’s the link to the Mashable article:

Redbox Verizon Streaming Video Service: Netflix will shortly have a new competitor! The new Redbox streaming service (co-hosted by Verizon) will debut in beta form this month with a wide launch of the service planned for early next year. So who knows 2013 may be the year that the video streaming flood gates burst open.

Here’s a link to a an All Things D article, titled The Redbox Verizon movie service is almost ready to take on Netflix  which offers more information on the subject:

Apple TV Again! The Wall Street Journal All Things D blog has reported that words has come from electronics manufacturers in China that Apple is indeed testing a television set. Speculation is that this new set, if it actually comes to market, may transform the way people watch television. Of course, until Apple actually announces that it is going to sell a television set we all have to take the rumors with a pinch of salt just because Apple is testing a TV design does not mean it will actually be a product that gets made and sold. But still…Tim Cook did mention that the television was an area of interest to Apple now in the recent interview he gave to NBC’s Brian Williams. So it is something tech to ponder!

Here’s a link to the Wall Street Journal All Things D article on the subject titled Apple Tests Designs for TV:

NY Times Tech Gift Suggestions, Pope To Tweet And Photoshop & Illustrated Updated For Retina Displays

New York Times Tech Gift Suggestions: New York Times tech columnist David Pogue is offering up twelve gift suggestions for the tech fan on your holiday shopping list. His list is titled David Pogue’s 12 Days of Gadgets and the list includes gift suggestions that are all priced under $100; because as Pogue says how many people really have unlimited funds to buy all the tech fans on their gift list $500 iPads! And just because the tech items are less expensive does not mean they are not cool! Consider the first suggested gift — a “Zapped” version of Monopoly, which costs $25 and which requires the use of an iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone. This version of the game does away with paper money altogether and instead has the Apple device be the bank and allows players to use plastic Monopoly credit cards to pay for properties by passing them in front of the iPod, iPhone or iPad.

Here’s the link to the New York Times article:

Pope To Tweet: Pope Benedict now has an official Twitter handle @pontifex and will begin offering regular Twitter comments tomorrow, Wednesday, December 12, 2012.

There are a number of articles online regarding the Pope using Twitter and all the followers he has amassed (to his Twitter handle); the USA Today offers one article titled Twitter Faithful Await Pope Benedict’s Words. Here’s the link:

Photoshop & Illustrated Updated For Retina Displays: Adobe has updated its Photoshop and Illustrator software to work with Retina displays. So if you have a new MacBook Pro with a Retina Display the photos and graphics you create using Photoshop and Illustrator should be even more stunning! And that fact is cool! However, I must admit my favorite part of the MASHABLE! article on the subject,  Adobe Updates Photoshop and Illustrator For Retina Displays, is the photo they show of the cat playing with the candy canes! Cat fan that I am –that is cool too! Here’s the link to the article:

Join Us For Our Reinventing The Slideshow Program, Smartphones Instead Of Wallets & New HD TV Cams

Join Us For Our Reinventing the Slideshow Program: On Wednesday we’re hosting our Reinventing The Slideshow program. Our tech wizard Jenn Gaylor will show attendees how to can create a slideshow on a PC with their favorite photos and music. Just in time for the holiday season! Registration is required. To register for the program stop by the library or call 936-3713 ext. 502.

Smart Phones Instead of Wallets: I came across a neat article on the New York Times Disruptions blog today. The article is titled How My Smartphone Emptied My Pockets. And despite the title the author, Nick Bilton, isn’t discussing how you can spend money by using your smartphone (although you certainly can!); instead he is discussing how you can use a cell phone to do things that previously would have required you to carry a thick wallet or billfold and possible another gadget or two.

The “things” you would previously have carried  include printed pictures, membership cards, portable music players, cameras, business cards, sound recorders, address books, membership cards and even in some instances cash. Today you can keep an address book, photos, business cards and membership cards on your smartphone. And you can also use your smartphone to pay for items in some stores (like coffee at Starbucks), house your IDs digitally (sans your driver’s license) and even to purchase movie tickets.

I thought the article was really interesting because it shows how the advancing technology is changing how we live. The author comments on how his father had to carry a wallet with stuff in it and that his wallet got larger and larger as the years went by and he needed to carry more and more stuff. Now the author carries one debit card, his driver’s license and his smartphone and that is all.

Here’s the link:

New HD TV Cams: Just in time for the holiday season The Red Ferret tech site is reviewing two new HD webcams that you can attach to your TV and then Skype away with family and friends and see those family members and friends on your TV. The TV cams are the Logitech TV Cam HD and the Tely Labs TelyHD Skype Camera. Just because I was curious I looked up the price of the TV cams and found Amazon & Best Buy both carry the TV Cams. And as of 12/10 the Logitech TV Cam HD is priced at $209.99 from Amazon and $199.99 from Best Buy and the Tely Labs TelyHD is priced at $229.98 from both Amazon and Best Buy.

And here’s the link to the Red Ferret review page:
