Been looking at the Kindle book reader from Amazon, and I think they may well have produced the 'killer app' for the reading public; much like what the 'iPod' for music listeners.
It's not perfect; formatting is somewhat of a bear. For example, tables --a basic formatting tool of HTML-- are not supported, which makes me think that this is not going to go over big in academic circles (though many publishers will probably just convert their table data into a graphic images; not a solution for me, since most of my tables are generated dynamically by the programs that I write).
However, once you get the hang of things, publishing eBooks is pretty straightforward. Which is great, since I see my own future as an author veering ultimately into the realm of self-publishing, with its lack of editorial constraints. I also like the idea of a small gadget that can hold two hundred books means to the vertebrae of my two daughters, who seem to look more and more like a special forces team with their huge backpacks filled with very heavy paper books.
So... here is little gift for you all who either have a Kindle or a Blackberry or whatever. It is the Recipe Index from the www.dadamo.com website. Now you can shop by using your PDA or Blackberry or Kindle.
Save it to your hard drive and upload it to your Kindle. If you have a Blackberry you need mobipocket to be able to read this file on a blackberry. You can download it free from here* just follow the simple directions. For other gadgets, just google you gadget with the keywords 'mobipocket' and 'prc file.' Most PDA and phone have some way of reading these files.
Enjoy, and let me know what you think of this first effort if you get it to work
* Thanks to C-sharp and Dr. Natalie, who let me know that the earlier link was no longer working.
Thanks for this info and feedback on the Kindle. The vertebrae saving function for your daughters is another plus. Amazing to see this tech come into existence. Next: a device that you hold to your temple and it records your thoughts. Not as far away as it may seem, if we just knew what thoughts actually were...and not what we "think" they are.
I'll leave a comment once I use it.
I am really happy to hear this.
Imagine someone pushing just a few buttons on an iPhone after each meal or snack to report what was eaten, having this data compiled real-time and compared to demographic and health data provided at regular intervals. The compliance should be very high compared to surveys that rely on total recall of foods eaten days or months earlier! This potential to learn about how Western Diets are really affecting people is unprecedented.
I tried to leave question on Ask Dr Adamo - but it ain't a happening thing. Do hope you see this!
Question: When is the right time to put an infant on Blood Type diet? My daughter is currently 20 months old and is Blood Type O negative, as am I. She has alot of dairy as recommended to do so and I'm getting worried as I have a SEVERE reaction to dairy and am worried it may contributing to her constant ear infections.
colorized kindle he said is in the works)....
Have you checked out the TypeBase4 link on this site:
It lists individual foods and shows the ones that are most appropriate for infants.
Also Dr. D'Adamo's Eat Right 4 Baby book should answer all your questions. I was able to get it from my local library.
One fact that sticks with me is that most types are best avoiding wheat gluten. It seems that rice and carrots are pretty universal once the baby is eating real food. I hope that helps.
I don't believe Dr. D is likely to answer many questions on this page, though he answers the rare question on the message boards. You can imagine the sheer quantity of messages on this and the Genotype site.
