One of the biggest advantages Barnes & Noble’s Nook has had over the Kindle is that prospective purchasers can fondle one in store—the Kindle, available only online, is a “thing” more than a product. But that’s going to change Sunday when Target starts selling Kindles. The ability to replenish my ever-low supply of Axe Body Wash and buy some of that future readin’ , in one store? I love Target

How To Check Your AT&T Data Usage [At&t]

With today’s new pricing policies regarding AT&T data plans, I’m sure a lot of you are asking, “How can I actually see how much data I’m using?” It’s super simple. MacObserver points out two ways you can check. One involves logging in at AT&T’s site, the other involves an app called AT&T myWireless Mobile that you can download. If you’re planning on sticking with AT&T through the policy changes—a few of us at Giz are not—it’s worth your 5 minutes of research.
