The Legend of Korra: Book Four Review - IGN

By Max Nicholson Warning: Full spoilers from The Legend of Korra: Book Four to follow. Watching The Legend of Korra's series finale last week was a bittersweet moment for me, as I'm sure it was for many of you. Having reviewed the show from the very beginning (almost three years ago now!), it's hard to believe the show's finally ended. But now that it has, I can safely say that Korra is one of my all-time favorite shows, even rivaling Avatar: The Last Airbender. Strong characters, compelling storylines, heartfelt humor, gorgeous animation -- this show had it all.

Sony Reader Digital Book PRS-505 review

Editor's note: As of September 2009, the PRS-505 reviewed here has been been replaced by the Reader Pocket Edition PRS-300 and the Reader Touch Edition PRS-600. In early 2007, Sony put out the PRS-500 Portable Reader System, which most people know as the Sony Reader. While Sony got a lot right with the PRS-500, critics--this one included--noted a handful of shortcomings that made the potentially groundbreaking e-book reader less appealing than it should have been. Now, less than year since the PRS-500's release, Sony has released the PRS-505 "Reader Digital Book," which also retails for $300.
