Recommend an ePub3 using Bootstrap?

This is probably a dumb question, but can anyone point me towards an ePub3 using Bootstrap? If you type "Bootstrap" into Amazon's search box, you get books with Bootstrap in the title. I'd like to find an ePub that actually uses Bootstrap. I'd simply like to see what you can do with Bootstrap in an ePub, plus it would be nice to have a book that I can use as a model if I decided to go for it. I asked a question about Bootstrap about a year ago, and it looks like the situation hasn't changed mu...

can i have *both* syncing across android/kindle paperwhite AND bold/font weight?

Hi: So I primarily read on my kindle. I use calibre and the KFX output plugin to get weighted fonts there. But I also like the ability to read on my phone and android tablet. I get most of my books from public domain and not from the Amazon ecosystem. Right now I'm using Moon Reader+ on my phone/tablet and the paperwhite to read. I also like having the option to do font weighting on paperwhite. So it seems like my options are: 1) Send all files to my @kindle email. This would achieve syn...

‘Homecoming’ Season 2 Will Not Feature Julia Roberts

If you were hoping to see Julia Roberts in Homecoming season 2, I have some bad news. While Roberts will remain an executive producer on the fantastic Amazon series from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, she won’t be returning to play her season 1 character Heidi Bergman. This is a bit disappointing, as Roberts turned in a wonderful performance in season 1. THR is reporting that Julia Roberts isn’t coming back for Homecoming season 2, and I’m sad about that. Per their story, “Roberts’ initial de...

Argument analysis: Justices weigh text and history of 21st Amendment in challenge to state residency requirement for liquor licenses

Ratified in 1933, the 21st Amendment ended Prohibition – which (fun fact!) was established by the 18th Amendment, ratified 100 years ago today. It also gave states broad power to regulate alcoholic beverages. At today’s oral argument in Tennessee Wine and Spirits Retailers Association v. Blair, the justices considered exactly how expansive that regulatory power is. In particular, does the 21st Amendment allow Tennessee to impose a two-year residency requirement for anyone who wants a retail lice...

Great deal on LED light bulbs

For some reason, Amazon won't ship these super-inexpensive Sylvania LED bulbs to California. I was able to get a box of 24 by having it delivered out of the state and picking it up on a road trip. They're excellent bulbs, and the soft-white style is nice and warm, the way I like my illumination.

A deep dive into the technical feasibility of Bloomberg's controversial "Chinese backdoored servers" story

Last October, Bloomberg published what seemed to be the tech story of the year: a claim that Supermicro, the leading supplier of servers to clients from the Pentagon and Congress to Amazon, Apple and NASA, had been targeted by Chinese spies who'd inserted devastating, virtually undetectable hardware backdoors into their motherboards by subverting a small subcontractor in China. But the story didn't quite add up. After it was published, the tech giants implicated in it released detailed, une...
