Tags:#Amazon#E-Books#mobile#web sarah perez What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Amazon announced today its Kindle application for Apple mobile devices including the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, now offers embedded video and audio clips within its e-books. At launch time, there are just thirteen titles sporting the new functionality, including a cookbook augmented by video demos and a nature guide called Bird Songs that lets you read about – and hear – various bird calls. But this is only the beginning, says Amazon. “We look forward to seeing what authors and publishers create…using the new functionality,” said Dorothy Nicholls, director of Amazon’s Kindle unit. While seemingly minor, the update gives Amazon an immediate advantage in the race to be the e-reader of choice for digital customers. In Amazon’s world, it’s not necessarily about having the number one hardware device for consuming digital text, it’s about having the number one platform, which is where the iPhone and iPad apps come into play.On the hardware front, Amazon last week dropped prices for the Kindle 3G to $189 from $259, to better compete with Barnes & Noble’s Nook device, now $199 for its 3G version. Now, on the software side, Amazon is ushering in a new era for digital books, with these “augmented editions” that offer more than just text. Beyond the “Accompanying CD-ROM”Of course, the idea to sell multimedia content along with a book is not, in and of itself, a new idea. Over the years, plenty of books have been sold with accompanying CD-ROMs or DVDs with additional material, especially in educational texts where study guides, video tutorials, practice tests and digital references come in handy. But it hasn’t been until the e-reader era that the ability to view these extras has been so seamlessly integrated with the reading experience itself. You no longer have to place the book down, insert a physical disk into a computer and then launch the book’s extras. It’s all blended into one package. Reinventing Reading? Already, the technology is enabling new experiences, such as in the digital guidebook, Rick Steves’ London, which offers five narrated audio tours of famous landmarks like the British Museum and St. Paul’s Cathedral. You can read the book on your iPhone or iPad then pop in your headphones to take a tour. But will these new augmented digital experiences truly usher in a new way to read? It may be too early to tell the broader impact the technology will have on the world at large, but outside Amazon’s universe, there are several publishers who are embracing the new digital format, both in e-books and e-magazines, with innovative offerings. The Alice in Wonderland iPad App, for example, was recently touted as a “reinvention” of reading, with its animations and interactive content. But really it’s just a pop-up book re-imagined for the digital age. There’s also a collection of digital magazines for the iPad, each experimenting with how best to incorporate media like video, audio and music, along with their text-based content. Wired’s iPad edition, for instance, offers video and audio in addition to news articles, leading to initial sales rivaling that of its newsstand counterpart. Entertainment Weekly, on the other hand, pared down its magazine for the iPad, with its launch of the EW “Must List,” a weekly top 10 featuring the best in film, books, TV and music where each item is linked to associated media like song clips or movie trailers. For book publishers, there are numerous possibilities to offer multimedia extras similar to these. But outside of reference books and nonfiction, writers will need to be careful about overindulging in these media bonuses. The point of reading – well, reading fiction at least – is not to see, but see with your mind’s eye. Imagination will always surpass media, no matter how new and glossy it is. Publishers should not fear the technology, though, but implement it thoughtfully and carefully going forward.

The BJP on Saturday appointed Lok Sabha MP Sanjay Jaiswal as its Bihar unit president and Amber MLA Satish Poonia as the chief of the Rajasthan unit.In a statement issued in New Delhi, the party said its president Amit Shah had approved the appointments and also that of Ajay Kumar as the general secretary (organisation) for Uttarakhand.Dr .Jaiswal, 53, is a three-time party MP from the West Champaran Lok Sabha constituency. A doctor by profession, he replaced Nityanand Rai who, earlier, was appointed as Minister of State for Home Affairs in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s the Cabinet.Dr. Jaiswal is also the chief whip of the party in the Lok Sabha. He had first won the Lok Sabha seat in 2009 and then in 2014. He defeated Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) candidate Brijesh Kumar Kushwaha by 2.93 lakh votes in the 2019 poll.Dr. Jaiswal’s father Dr Madan Prasad Jaiswal had also been a three-time party MP from the constituency which, earlier, was known as Bettiah LS seat, in 1996, 1998 and 1999.Dr. Jaiswal had done his MBBS from the Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) while MD (general medicine) from the Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital (DMCH). He expressed his thanks to Mr. Shah for reposing faith in him.“This is an election year and party has entrusted great trust and faith in me…I’ll try my best to come up to the expectations of the top leadership,” he told the media in West Champaran.The appointment of Mr. Poonia, MLA from Jaipur district’s Amber constituency, came two-and-a-half months after the death of State chief Madan Lal Saini on June 24. Hailing from Churu’s Rajgarh town, Mr. Poonia, 55, is considered close to the RSS.An influential Jat leader, Mr. Poonia is known for his organisational skills and served as the State general secretary four times between 2004 and 2014. His appointment was made at a crucial time — just before the local body elections.Mr. Poonia was at present the party State spokesperson and was also looking after its membership drive. The strategy to appoint the Jat leader threw a major challenge before the ruling Congress ahead of the municipal polls, as the latter is under pressure to give a senior position in the party structure to the community.Mr. Poonia told reporters at the party headquarters in Jaipur that his working style would remain the same in his new capacity and the party workers were happy on the selection of a person “from among themselves”. “We will work for progress of all sections of society and strengthen the BJP at the booth level.”He alleged that the Congress had betrayed the farmers and the youth and neglected the law and order, which had led to a sharp increase in crimes. He said the BJP, while playing an effective role as the Opposition, would give a tough fight to the Congress in the local body polls and by-elections in two Assembly seats this year.
Prior to the start of the State of Origin series, the two captains of the men’s open teams Steve Roberts (New South Wales) and Daniel Withers (Queensland) shared their final thoughts.Steve Roberts on…The first game:“The nerves are starting to creep in but there is a good feeling amongst the boys. We are seeking redemption from the last time we played.”The 2012 series loss:“We’ve spoken more so about us and what we can do. I think we are masters of our own destiny. We talked about our attitude and getting that right.”The sky blue of New South Wales:“Whenever you put on a rep jersey, I always wear it with pride. That’s the feeling we are trying to distil in everyone within the team. It is up there with the fastest touch you will play, alongside the Trans-Tasman series. It is really exciting and the skill level out there will be on show.”Daniel Withers on…His team:“We are pumped and are really keen to go. We have got some really young guys who are just enthusiastic and are tearing at the bit to get out there and prove they are more than good enough.”Pressure of being defending champions and playing in Queensland:“At the end of the day you just have to take it as another game. For us it is about coming down tonight, turning up and make sure for 40 minutes we rip and tear, take care of a few things in our game plan and make the scoreboard in our favour.”Team’s preparation:“We had our last session a couple of weeks ago and it was incredibly sharp. I was probably the most sharpest session I’ve ever walked away from in my touch career. We are extremely excited and to see these young boys out there, and if they can bring their A-game, it will just be awesome.”State of Origin series:“You look at the rugby league guys and the New South Wales versus Queensland rivalry, nothing changes. It is probably the fastest game you will ever be involved in and to get out there, play at this level, against some of your mates and the best players in the world, there is no better stage to be running on.”There are plenty of ways to keep up-to-date with all of the latest results, news and information from the 2014 State of Origin.

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Butt insists Man Utd fortunate to have Solskjaer as managerby Freddie Taylor3 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United head of first team development Nicky Butt says the club are fortunate to have Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager.Academy graduates Axel Tuanzebe, James Garner, Angel Gomes, Brandon Williams, Tahith Chong and Mason Greenwood have all featured this season.And Butt says the Norwegian’s experience of working in the academy and being a young player at the club is vitally important in his role.”He’s really approachable, knows the club inside out, what it takes to be a footballer here,” Butt said of Solskjaer.”Even though he wasn’t an academy member, he came as a very young boy and was lost, didn’t know what to do and embraced the club and ended up becoming one of the family.”We’re fortunate at the minute that Ole is in hotseat. He’s coached in the academy, he did his coaching badges with academy players and coaches, so he knows pretty much everybody right down to the Under-12s in the club and that can only be beneficial.”
