My Reading Setup on the E-book Readers

Previously I have written about both my T1 and my Glo. Now, I’m writing about my reading setup: files, settings, and whatnots to create e-book articles from non-books and for reading. There are a lot of setups and tutorials available (especially in mobileread), but these are I use the most/ most comfortable in. (not really into using them wirelessly, syncing and stuff)

(warning: the usual I’m in Windows(!!))

A Review of the Graphing Calculator by Mathlab

Nowadays, the smartphone plays such an important role in our lives because it is practical in many areas. It improves efficiency for whatever I need it for. It is with me wherever I go. Out of all the functions my phone can do, being a calculator is one of the best!

I tutor science to students privately and I also teach Olympiad preparation in my high school, both of them need a lot of calculations that require calculators. The problem is that my students I teach don’t have a calculator. Weirdly enough however, they all have phones, Android phones to be exact, ah… these kids.

The normal calculator in your phone is okay for basic calculation. For complex math and physics however, a scientific calculator is a must. From all of the calculators available in the market, I definitely recommend Graphing Calculator by Mathlab. Since its size is only 1.39 MB, it doesn’t even take a minute to download.

Sony PRS-T1 (aka My Ebook Reader)

I spend 5-8 hours a day on my smartphone and my computer, mostly for reading. It is disruptive to my eyes and sleep cycle so, it was a long wish of mine to have a dedicated ebook reader or e-ink device. In Indonesia though, it does not even have a niche, I’ve never seen anybody with one until I saw one of my upperclassman with 2nd gen Kindle Basic. There is some seller selling ebook readers here, but they sell with very high-profit margin so no, no.
