    Kindle is from Amazon, it's basically the book version of an mp3 player. You can download books, mags, newspapers, blogs etc and read them from your Kindle. Here's a link http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00154JDAI/...l_177pa6cuyf_e

    I never got into twitter. I can see useful applications of it, but for keeping in touch with friends and family on a regular basis it's not my thing. It would be good if you have a big event you need to send updates out to lots of people on regularly (birth of a child, someone in surgery, etc). I could also see classmates using it to study, taking turns randomly tossing out info on twitter.

    I don't understand what is so amazing about following what other people are looking at...who cares? I am 22 and I still don't get it. I think people just need their fads.

    Twitter has a purpose, and it isn't a fad. It's a community. A lot use twitter to market their self, website, and or product: you attempt to gain followers, the more the better and then your potential rises market yourself.

    Seems like a lazy persons myspace to me.

    Oh my god. Seriously, I'm not a bird. Resist the brevity, resist it with all your might, people. It leads to leet speak, text speak, and all this unintelligible garbage that apparently now we call "tweet" speak. I mean, ***. No, WTFBBQ. Language used to be so nice, now it's the thing that dates me. That just rofls my copter.

    Twitter isn't about what you had for dinner. That may be what many people think it is or how main stream media portrays it.

    Twitter - if understood - is far more than a fad or ego. In fact, I think the functionality of Twitter (the ability to transmit short bursts of information) can be incredibly useful in healthcare.

    I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss Twitter, especially without actually experiencing it and understanding how useful its API (Application Programming Interface) can be. Microsharing is the next step in the evolution of collaboration. Nurses need collaboration tools that enable them to focus on their patients more than bulky technologies. Twitter (and secure version like Yammer) is something every nurse should be working hard to understand and help deploy in facilities.
