I still don't have an iPhone. But I'm pretty sure I would have one if my cellphone provider would offer one. But now I have time to debate with myself about life without an iPhone. I can ask myself how much better my life could/would be if I would have an iPhone; or how my life sucks without an iPhone; or what opportunities I miss by not having an iPhone; or what great new friends I would have if I would have an iPhone; or what cool places I could visit/map out if I would own an iPhone; or how much more I could know about the inner workings of the world if I would have an iPhone; or how I could waste a ton of time in a more fashionable way .. if I just would have an iPhone.

Happy New Year to Everyone and welcome to my first weekly update!

Have you ever experienced "Hyper-Browsing"? I'm pretty sure you have. It just happened to me this morning. I opened my web-browser to look up some book reviews. I opened the Amazon website and immediately got side-tracked checking out some camera shown on their front page. What followed was a somehow chaotic 1 hours click, check, google, watch, think, heart-rate-rising browsing experience; which ended in a bad "what was I originally looking for?" feeling. Yes, that is what I call "Hyper-Browsing", and I'm sure you have experienced that too. Now what is my point? I really like my Nook, and I really like its limited set of functionality. That limited set helps me to stay focused on what I want to do; I just want to read a book.
