Daily Links and Deals: Tablets Are Dead

daily_links_1Daily Links for Thursday, February 25, 2016:

President Obama Will Nominate Dr. Carla Hayden as Next Librarian of Congress (Infodocket)

Google wants us to change our name from 9to5Google (Update: We’re back!) (9 to 5 Google) –  Running afoul of trademark law: the fallout…. Anybody remember when Amazon made everybody take the work Kindle out of their domain names?  Yeah, it’s like that.

The why’s and what’s of 5G (USA Today) – This is where wireless networks are going – and why it’s a good idea.

Tablets Are Dead (Techcrunch) – Not a single new tablet revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The Open eBooks Program Brings eBooks to Students Who Need it Most (The Digital Reader) – Ebooks going where they are desperately needed, but could the government manage the program for less?

Deals of the Day:

Amazon’s Kindle Daily Deals includes The Dead Play On (Cafferty & Quinn Novels Book 3) by Heather Graham for 99 cents.

The Barnes and Noble Nook Daily Find is  A Night In With Audrey Hepburn by Lucy Holliday for $1.99. The Romance Daily Find is Safe at Last (Slow Burn Series #3) by Maya Banks for $1.99.

Kobo’s Daily Deal is Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig for $2.99.

iTunes’ Weekly Bestsellers Under $4 includes The Kill Box by Nicole Christoff for 99 cents.

Google is offering a selection of Limited Time Deals that includes Mockingbird (Sequel to Blackbirds) by Chuck Wendig for $2.99.

(A note on Daily Deals: All prices current at the time of posting and subject to change. Most items marked Daily Deals are good for only the day posted.

Many large promotions have discount pricing that is set by the publisher. This usually means that titles can be found at a discount price across most platforms (with iTunes sometimes being the exception). If you have a favorite retailer you like to patronize, check the title on that website. There is a good chance that they will be matching the sale price.)

Daily Links are interesting links I discover as I go about my online day. The frequency and number of links posted depend upon the daily news. I also post other, different links of interest on Twitter and on the Google Plus eBook Evangelist Page.
