Privacy ALERT! If you use ANY internet browser to surf the net, you are tracked by more sites than you actually go to. Mozilla has created an add-on for Firefox that allows you to view what web sites are tracking your browsing habits. A number of companies use this information to target advertising. I'm not sure if there is a fool proof way to stop the tracking but supposedly Google Chrome is the supposedly the most secure browser currently.

Derek Handley, mobile marketing pioneer and the co-founder of recently acquired Hyperfactory has a new startup in process that adds audio tracks to ebooks. Interesting concept. Now you can hear a sound track when reading a book that changes with the text story line in similar process to sound tracks to movies. When a door opens and make a "creaking" noise in the story, you hear a "creaking" noise in the sound track, just like at the movies or on TV.
Whether this is a novel fad or new trend will have to be watched over time. But at least for now, it's a new way to read ebooks. Download a couple samples to hear for yourself.
