Audio book sales soar in Europe and a gadget that is so Dick Tracy!

According to a story on ZDNet, Europeans are purchasing so many digital audio books that sales are predicted to soar by 20% this year. Some of the factors involved in this growth are the availability of bestsellers like the Harry Potter books and the prevalence of iPods and MP3 players. The United Kingdom is the biggest market for audio books with Germany coming in second. German bookstores are looking into adding download stations so that customers can purchase and download a book at these locations.

I came across a gadget that reminds me of the old Dick Tracy comic strips. The Walkie Talkie Watch is approved for use in most of Europe. It transmits up to 164 ft. in buildings and 1.5 miles in the open.
