TechCrunch is reporting that Microsoft is trying to buy the Nook ebook and device ecosystem — for $ 1 billion. According to documents TechCrunch has obtained, Redmond hopes to buy the digital assets of Nook Media LLC; that’s the Barnes & Noble subsidiary behind the ebook business, as well as the Nook e-readers and tablets themselves.
The documents also reveal that the current Nook tablets aren’t long for this world. They reportedly state that Nook Media plans to discontinue its Android tablets like the Nook HD by the end of its 2014 fiscal year. The focus would then shift to what is referred to as “third-party partner” devices. It’s not clear what those devices specifically would be, but according to the document they’re scheduled to…
JDate Haggadah is an eBook version of, well, the Haggadah. It also answers the question you never knew you had: what would Moses' online dating profile look like?
JDate Haggadah is an eBook version of the Haggadah, the text containing the story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt and traditionally read at Passover Seder.
The free eBook is meant to be used as a functional, “modern” Haggadah (read, as it were, from a smartphone or tablet), but also provides, as their PR pitch puts it, “a steady stream of punchy jokes.” Mostly this means lamenting the lack of technology present in ancient Egypt (“Look around and appreciate all you have, for we were once Pharaoh’s slaves in Egypt where there was no cell reception and very few taxi cabs.”), but in the middle section, there are also a few pages dedicated to mock-up JDate profiles for the Pharaoh, his daughter, the slavemaster, and Moses himself. (Username: “GunsNMoses.” “You should message me if you: want to get out of Egypt.”)
They're only a little weirder than the type of profile you can currently find on any modern-day dating site on the internet.

“During a recent move, I dumped a dozen boxes of books at goodwill, and have decided to give e-books a try. But what’s the most “open” way to buy them? Me and my wife want to share titles (reasonable enough, given that we wouldn’t buy two copies from a bookstore). As such, we’d like to open an account somewhere that will let us read on our various computers, PlayBook, iPad and Nook. Is there a store that you can suggest?”
Given your humble narrator’s long-held resistance to e-books (and devotion to building a library of their own), this is one we’re going to pass straight over to the Engadget community. So, dear friends, what’s your opinion?

The US Division of Justice may have just reached settlements with three of the five significant publishers it had actually demanded presumably correcting e-book costs, but it’s improving its track record through a brand-new offer with Penguin. Like its peers, the company has accepted end any pacts that avoid it from decreasing e-book prices, whether the plans are with Apple or other shop operator. While Penguin hasn’t right away commented on its change of heart, a company spokesperson made clear to The Guardian that an EU settlement was for “clearing the decks” ahead of a joint venture with Random House– Penguin didn’t want government analysis towering above its union. The truce leaves Macmillan as the last publication giant still slated to go to court in the US, and it could not get much support when Apple belonged to the European arrangement.
Book author Penguin has just settled with the US Division of Justice over an ongoing ebook price-fixing lawsuit. That leaves just Apple and publisher Macmillan from the initial defendants; Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, and Hachette all settled back in September. Like the any other publishers, Penguin will end its contract with Apple and any other ebook retailers and will be constrained for two years from becoming part of any type of arrangements that limit merchants’ abilities to supply promotions or rebates on Penguin’s ebooks.
