It's a nice day for a White Kindle

Whitekindles

You can finally buy a Kindle, or a Kindle Paperwhite, in white (again). I'm not sure why you'd want a white Kindle since I think the gray/black helps the Kindle fade into the background when you're reading but I'm not the boss of you.

Also of note, the new base level Kindle ($79) has Bluetooth; the first Kindle to sport this. Generally I tell people NOT to buy the base level Kindle since the Paperwhite is so much better and not that much more expensive, however, if your vision is impaired, or you like your Kindles to read to you, you should totally get the base level Kindle. You can pair it with some Bluetooth headphones and listen away to your books.

Of course, my Kindle of choice is the crazy expensive Oasis. You can hear me ramble on about it on episode 87 of Upgrade.


Trump Supporters should read this article


I'm sure they will think it is bunk because it is from the New York Times, but it is really shocking. How Donald Trump Bankrupted His Atlantic City Casinos, but Still Earned Millions:

‘Trump crawled his way to the top on the back of little guys, one of them being my father,’ said Ms. Rosser, who runs Triad today. ‘He had no regard for thousands of men and women who worked on those projects. He says he’ll make America great again, but his past shows the complete opposite of that.’

I side with... Hillary

I side 98 with Hillary Clinton

I took the quiz at ISideWith.com and found out that Hillary is for me (which I knew already). I am mostly surprised that I agree with Trump on 9% of the issues. Seems high.

I used to consider myself a Republican, though really a Rockefeller Republican which is now being a Democrat.

Why did I even consider myself a Republican? Well, I'm fiscally conservative (generally I don't think anyone should spend more than they have, and that State and Local folks probably have a better understanding of where the funds should go) and socially liberal (I don't think the government has any business telling people what to do with their bodies, who they should marry, and other things along those lines).

I have no idea who Jill Stein is, but it would seem I agree with her a lot too. And I'm not surprised to find that I agree with about a third of Gary Johnson's views. Libertarian platforms always seem like ALMOST a good idea to me, but then you get to the point where they want to abolish the Department of Education and they lose me.

Anyway, the big thing to remember is this: Donald Trump should not be president.
