A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

Apple's iBooks v1.5

Apple has updated its e-reader app, iBooks. The changes, in a word, brilliant! Better would be two words, non-brilliant.

You see, they implemented a night time reading theme, which works wonders. No longer does the iPad's backlight bathe you, and anyone near you, in its glow. The change, in essence, reverses the image: white type on a black backdrop rather than black type on a white (and ultra-bright) backdrop.

A few other changes: full screen and a greater variety of fonts.

I like the update. Download, and see for yourself.
