Iv'e used Amazon some I feel that Amazon wal-mart and other large retailers are cartels 





With paper printed books, you have certain freedoms. You can acquire the book anonymously by paying cash, which is the way I always buy books. I never use a credit card. I don't identify to any database when I buy books. Amazon takes away that freedom. ~Richard Stallman

Is an offline, text-only version of Wikipedia on a mobile device. Its an interesting tool I have used it they have stopped making them a few years ago and the Ideas of this product are great but a lot of the time it would not work.

If you do buy one here is a link to updated software

Alphasmart is a cool typewriter like device that can be connected via USB to a computer such as a Windows or Linux PC or even a MAC. It runs on batteries it wont use data or let you go online but its really simple and neat to use.  

Game Boy Advance SP

The only dedicated gaming system I still have I found it fitting that this would be my 1st post about about technology use and digital sabbath. I also just joined the amazon affiliates program and found out that the GBA SP isn't eligible for the referral. I canceled my Amazon account so I wont buy stuff from them but I will replace the referral codes with bogleheads Amazon links. 
 


I like how the GBA SP has a lithium battery a backlight its fit & from. It only has 1 display so you can focus on it, simple A & B button. the GBA SP cant go online so there is no data cost or distractions with this system.


the 1st game boy came out in 1989 the 1st one I bought was a game boy advance GBA sometime after 2001 but before 2005  it was the AA battery operated system. I love my GBA SP with its light and that it folds in my pocket better is able to be recharged and easier to see whats on the screen. 

cool games for this system 

Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town

The Urbz: Sims in the City
