My Son Absolutely Loves the Piano

My wife and I decided on piano lessons for beginners in Singapore after our son expressed interest in learning how to play a musical instrument. The driving force behind finding someone who could teach lessons was actually my son. My wife learned to play when she was young and he loves to watch her sit down at our piano and crank out some beautiful music. I thought he might go for playing the drums, but no he wanted to play the piano. I’m sure our neighbors would appreciate his decision! Nonetheless we needed to find an instructor as my wife felt like she didn’t have enough time to do it.

We found a music centre where they teach lessons for just about any instrument imaginable. They teach kids and they teach adults. If you’ve got an interest in learning how to play an instrument, they’re willing to teach you how to play it. Even better is that he hit it off with the instructor immediately.

Skytex Primer Review

Overview 

The Primer is the purest E-Reader we have seen with the exception of the Kindle, and the Skytex Primer includes some things that have not been streamlined in the Kindle. Its display is color, something attractive to many users, in particularly who want full PDF capabilities or who want to view the color pictures from newspapers faithfully.

It also has great text-to-speech technology — although the Kindle has this as well, the quality isn’t as high. This is what the press release from Skytex had to say.

Regarding its hardware, the Skytex Primer 7″ Color eReader and Media Player shares some similarities with the Ematic “710B eReader. These include cheap plastic casing, a numeric keypad located underneath the screen, and two awkwardly located sets of buttons on the right.

The pixel resolution of 800 X 480 gives it an antiquated display feel. In contrast, the resolution on the seven inch Nook Color is 1024 X 768. The Skytex Primer has a processor (ARM9 400MHz), which is older but is OK for downloading speed, as well as general operations.

The unit contains 2GB internal memory, enough to store up to ten thousand books plus thousands of songs. Inserting a 16GB MicroSD card into the expansion slot, allows you to store all the books, music, and video files you want and take them with you wherever you go.

They claim that the battery will last 10 hours, but really you only get 7 hours of reading and 5 hours if you play music as you read. Power will be depleted more quickly if you browse the Internet or watch videos.

EPUB, HTML, PDF, PRC and TXT format files are all supported by the Skytex Primer Color Reader and Media Player. It has 18 different languages available for display.

Positives 
The Skytex Primer 7″ Color Reader and Media Player is priced very inexpensively. Significant features are offered by this product, considering its price of $99. You can get books from any eBookstore with open format devices like the Skytex Primer. Students who wish to tape lecturers will discover a built-in recording software and microphone a bonus.

Negatives
The Skytex Primer is not for those who want a high quality product with a unique design. Skytex’s hardware appears to come from China, just like the Ematic eReader as well as many other brands of less expensivecolor eReaders.

If you compare these two devices, you will notice that the specs and features are nearly identical. The Skytex Primer battery is the cause of the biggest issue with the unit. It seems like it is never totally charged, even if it is left charging for hours. In addition, the batter life is horrible – it only provides approximately seven hours of reading per a time.

Using folders or directories may prove to be a challenge. For example, the gadget lists the music in the ebook folder, also. Improvements are urgently needed for the zooming feature. While it allows you to zoom in on a page, you must go back to the default page view if you want to turn the page.

Bottom Line
I really enjoyed this device as a $99 e-reader, and it does provide a pleasant reading experience. However, the retail price is now around $129, which is too expensive in my opinion. There was a lot of competition for TBH even when it was available at its original price.

At Meritline.com, the Primer is currently available for $119. This hardware has already been seen on the Australian market as the Big W MiGear.

Hardware and Specs 
The Skytex Primer centered on a 7” LCD screen (800×480), 400 MHz Rockchip CPU, 2GB Flash, as well as a micro SDHC card slot (which supports as much as 16GB). The Primer also has an FM Radio, microphone and a speaker too.

Two sets of page turn buttons are situated on the right side of the screen and a d-pad, number keys, as well as buttons for rotate, back, font size, and play/pause are located below the screen.

Epub, html, FB2, PDF, Mobi, and txt for ebook formats are supported by the Primer, and the specs page claims that it can also play DAT, MP3, FLV, WMA, AAC, APE, VOB, FLAC, RMVB, MP4, and 3GP. I am unable to test it, since I don’t have the majority of those formats. The Primer has about 10 hours of battery life before it needs to be recharged. For an eReader with LCD technology, this is good.

Reading Experience 
Overall, the Skytex Primer has a nice feel. I kept putting the Literati aside so I could read on the Primer instead. Even though there are prettier eReaders available, using this one was enjoyable. It lacks capabilities besides basic bookmarks and page jump, but that is not a big deal.

I discovered one unusual feature. The CPU maker (they created the firmware) stated that they Primer does not work with DRM. This feature is something they were sure they did not add. However, there is an issue with that. Adobe DE didn’t cause any issues when running on my review device. I permitted the Primer and successfully moved many DRMed ebooks onto it.

I’m pretty positive that it doesn’t utilize Adobe Reader Mobile (the reading app on Sony, Nook, etc.) though. Ebooks seem to all look similar whether they are from NookStudy, Sony EReader Library, or Nook4PC.

There are major differences, though, in how the Primer displays ebooks. Combine that with the fact that I have screwed around with my notebook PC so much (my Adobe DE install is probably ruined) and the fact that Skytex does not recognize this feature. Don’t depend on this feature, as I don’t know if yours will come with it.

Sony PRS 950 Review

Overview 

Although the Sony 950 Daily Edition Reader won’t come out until November, Sony has provided the FCC website, via MobileRead, with a few tidbits of information. This device essentially carries forward a lot of features found on the Sony PRS 900. This includes the 7″ screen, 2GB storage and support for either landscape or portrait orientation.

Additionally, you will find the familiar aluminum enclosure and memory stick expansion slots. You still have the ability to borrow books from the library, download books from many different stores, or websites, and have access to literally millions of books from Google.

However, the Sony PRS 950 is aimed at improving readability. It’s fitted with an eInk Pearl screen, and the touch layer from the PRS 300 will be replaced with one that incorporates optical sensing. This optical screen allows for more response in the interface with none of the worsened contrast that previous models exhibited. Both finger and stylus inputs are supported by the unit. In addition, a virtual keyboard supports text input.

In the same way as the Nook, the unit supports internet surfing through WiFi connection only. To get to the Sony Reader Store and download books and periodicals, 3G is used. Upon the wireless radio being turned on, the unit will look for WiFi network first. If unable to locate, the unit will link to the AT&T 3G network, automatically. If you’re trading up from an older Sony device to this device, your Sony Store purchases automatically transfer to your PRS 950.

Positives

Responsive touch screen without glare or bad contrast; 7-inch eInk Pearl display with high-contrast; 3G and Wi-Fi; faster than the device preceding it; works with Sony’s e-book store; long battery life (22 days maximum); support for EPUB standard, meaning users can download e-books from libraries and elsewhere; audio support; SD and Micro-USB charging.

Positives

Costs more than competitors; Sony’s online store pales in comparison to Amazon’s; many platforms don’t support the Sony Reader app; lack of protective cover.

Bottom Line

Of all the eInk eBook readers, the one I like the most is the Sony PRS 950. It’s light and easy to carry, but the display is larger and will show more words per page. This is great for quick readers. The device also handles PDF files better.

The display of the eInk Pearl is a lot better than the former Vizplex eInk. The contrast is higher and doesn’t need as much ambient lighting, so you don’t have to turn on a lot of lights in a room just to see it. Its touch interface feels a good deal more intuitive than that of the eInk devices from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Once you’ve tried the Sony Reader, you won’t want to use the others again.

Design

The little size of the eBook reader was one of its exceptional features. Under half-an-inch thick, it weighs under 10 ounces. It’s small size makes it very portable, so it can be carried in your bag, backpack, or packed in your suitcase when traveling.

The eInk technology incorporated in the Reader Daily Edition PRS-950SC makes the reading experience much like that of print books. The touch-screen functionality of the 7-inch display screen boasts anti-glare technology. While we still had a bit of trouble with glare in direct sunlight, generally we were quite satisfied with the display screen.

You can choose from 6 font sizes on the Daily Edition PRS-950, so it seems a lot more like reading a real book. You can also customize your reading with up to 16 levels of gray scale. Choose whichever one feels most comfortable.

Content

A great deal of content can be accessed from the PRS-950SC. The eBook reader lets you get into the online Reader Store. There is a wide selection available in the online store; however, it’s not as big as the competitor’s stores. Nevertheless, the store can be accessed for free and it lets you download magazines, newspapers as well as books.

Additionally, since the Reader Daily Edition PRS-950SC is able to support more than one format, it can access PDFs and ePub online. Because of this, you can access more online bookstores. You can also download PDF and ePub documents from their sites. We really enjoyed this feature and felt that it gave us a lot more options in reading matter.

Memory/Battery Life 

With the Reader Daily Edition PRS-950SC, you should have a 10-day charge with wireless enabled. Sony asserts the eReader will operate for 22 days with the wireless turned off, but actual battery life varies according to wireless usage.

With 2GB of internal memory, the eReader is okay but could use a bit more. Nonetheless, we were happy the unit provides media expansion slots. The Sony PRS 950 can store up to 50,000 books if memory cards are used.

Added Features 

The Reader Daily Edition PRS-950SC lets you take notes and highlight the text, a feature many appreciate. The capacity for taking notes and highlight was easy, clear and handy.

In addition, this eBook reading device has Wi-Fi and free 3G wireless access. You can download books from the online Reader Store free of charge using the 3G mobile broadband. It also allows you to download documents very easily. We accessed the book and information we desired very quickly and easily. Easy to use, the eBook reader is particularly nice for all of its advanced features.
