MultiIE version 3.0 available

The long awaited update to Southway’s MultiIE utility has been released.

I’ve been playing with the demo of MultiIE 3.0 for the last few days and I’m really impressed. As a desktop Opera user, I’m hopelessly dependant on multiple windows and tabbed browsing. MIE delivers this, as well as the instant Google searching that Opera does, and a true fullscreen mode. Also new in this version, MultiIE integrates with NYDITOT Virtual Display to provide seamless, no-reset portrait landscape switching, integrates with GreenLight Wireless’ Skweezer reformatting service, and a whole nest of other new features. It seems a little bit slow at some points, but it’s still nice.

Project Gutenberg celebrates 10,000 free books

Okay, late and tenuously handheld-related at best. Sue me. On the 16th, Project Gutenberg, a loosely affiliated independant group that scans public domain books into computerized texts, celebrated the posting of their 10,000th free book. Interestingly, it took PG 31 years, from 1971 to 2002, to build a base of 5000 ebooks, but only another 18 months to produce 5000 more. Of those, 3800 were within the last 12 months. What to make of this sudden upswing? Good question. But it certainly seems like there is an increased interest and enthusiasm for PG’s work, and possibly ebooks in general.
