TECH KNOW HOW WITH LUCY HEDGES: 30TH OCTOBER 2012

Jon Teamlaverne Jon Teamlaverne | 11:09 UK time, Tuesday, 30 October 2012

Gadget of the Week - Kindle Paperwhite

Prefer real books to e-readers? Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite is a good reason to think again. Unlike earlier Kindles's with grey screens, the Paperwhite has a white, front-lit, e-ink screen with greatly increased contrast, so it comes much closer to the ideal of black ink on white paper and makes for a much easier reading experience. Can also read in bed without needing lamp.

 

App of the Week - Fontly, Free, Android and iOS

Bit of a niche app for fans of Vintage typography. Essentially discover, collect, track and share vintage typography from across the world by location.

 

Website of the Week - Reelizer.com

Reelizer is a website dedicated to the fine art of film posters - essentially old and current film posters rehashed by several different artists. Great if you're bored of generic looking movie posters or just appreciate a good doodle.
