Kobo’s Aura H20 Makes The High-Res E-Reader Waterproof

Kobo has a new e-reader out that actually could shake up the market, since it offers waterproofing as a standard factory feature on a $179.99 e-reader, with a high-res, 265 DPI 6.8-inch e-ink display. The Kobo Aura H20 basically takes the already-impressive Aura HD, makes the design thinner and lighter, and adds IP67 environmental resistance--which is a tough package to beat.

Tech Trends-England Statues Speaks 08-26-14

the biggest shifts in technology, software and devices that affect our lives. for centuries, they have been standing silent. but this week... some of england's historic statues will be given a voice. c-n-n's jim boulden went to hear what they had to say. they stand in our parks. in our train stations. on our streets. often ignored. and silent. "if you've walked along the thames here on blackfriars bridge you might have walked right past queen victoria but now you can tap, type or scan ... and get a phone call from queen victoria." "hello...victoria here. queen of england for 63 years, seven months and two days but who's counting." read by actors, 35 statues across london and manchester now have a voice. "i think that in a world where we feel increasingly separate from our public spaces, how can we make people feel a sense of belonging and a sense of ownership and a sense of fun. we can stop people from looking in their phones to looking out at the world around them." at paddington station, voicing great engineer isambard brunel is downton abbey's hugh bonneville. "...my whole life was about trying to get somewhere..." patrick stewart becomes the unknown soldier. "come on, stand a while..." and in manchester, lending his voice to conductor barbirolli is actor, timothy west. "do you notice statues much? are you somebody who stops and takes a look? even if you don't know who the person is?" "yes i do and i say 'oh yeah, i must remember to google him when i get home,' and i forget. so that's what's good about this you get a little tiny thumbnail sketch of somebody that you can listen to." but it's not just people, it's animals too. "good morrow to you dear passer by..." helen lederer voices whittington's cat, who was the feline friend of the 15th century london mayor dick whittington. "these statues have existed at a time when now celebrity is so usual and common place, these were the celebrities of the time, the icons, and we just don't notice them but they must all have done something quite important." as these statues make their voices heard in the u-k, there are plans to expand this to american and european cities. so you never know who you might get a call from next. jim boulden c-n-n london. once again, someone has been messing with the sony playstation network. and this time the infiltrators have even disrupted the travel plans of a top company official. the hacker or hackers went on twitter to suggest that there was a bomb on his american airlines plane. that forced the airline to cut short the sony executive's flight on sunday and bring the plane down for an unplanned landing in phoenix. a twitter account called lizard squad tweeted to american airlines that there might be explosives on the plane carrying john smedley, the president of sony online entertainment, which makes video games. the same account also claimed responsibility for the playstation network outage. we want to remind you to "like" the wdef news 12 the morning facebook page. just search for us on facebook to find us. when you do, you can converse with us in our question of the day. this morning we ask chart topper brad paisley returns today with a new album! moonshine in the trunk includes the hit "river bank." the video features twiggy the water skiing squirrel! paisley hopes the song will become his 23rd chart topper... and the album will be his eighth release to hit number-one. to celebrate paisley's return, he autographed this guitar for us... which we'll be giving away to one lucky viewer. visit our facebook page to find out how you can enter friday's big drawing
