With a 25% discount on buildings, I’ve finally “finished” We Rule by getting to level 35 and building the Red Dragon Lair. I’m sure there will be more levels and even more expensive buildings, but for now … I RULE!

All buildings are shown here, except for the Prison in my South Realm along with my massive plantation of Ruby Groves.

I ordered an iPad with the 3G chip a few weeks ago. I was excited when Apple informed me that a package was on the way via FedEx. However, it only weighed 1 lb, and when I took it home, I was rather disappointed:

Come on Apple, send me my iPad ASAP!!!

Panic Grips Amazon.com

Amazon.com is in full-on panic mode as the anticipated announcement of the Apple JesusTablet draws near. First, they reduced the royalty split from 70/30 in Amazon’s favor to 70/30 in the publishers favor. Then they announce a beta version of a Kindle Development Environment to get third party applications. Finally, they announce a money-back guarantee for selected Kindle customers, as long as they buy their Kindle by January 26th.

These developments wouldn’t be bad if they were spread out over months and or announced earlier in the Kindle’s life in response to customer complaints, but the timing and spacing of these events indicates that Amazon is greatly worried about their ability to compete with an unannounced Apple product, and rightfully so – their pricing and the fiasco over copies of Orwell’s “1984” deleted from their customers Kindles has earned them the distrust of many users, including myself.

Sorry Amazon, I’ll be waiting until January 27th to decide if I want an ebook reader.
