    Are eReaders Robust Enough for Warfighters?

    I have been enjoying learning about the iPad and will have more recommendations to come about apps that I absolutely love.  That said, I want to switch back to the discussion of iPad vs Kindle–not looking at features, and the...

    “Save Boeing” as an argument?

     The alert reader has no doubt heard and read stories about the US Air Force’s selection of the next air refueling aircraft, or “Tanker.”  In what to many was a surprise move, the Air Force selected the Northrup Grumman/AEDS (Airbus)...
