Kindle and iPod Shuffle act out Bladerunner scene

E-reader voices read a scene from a screenplay.

Kindle's "Tom" voice is Bladerunner's "Holden" and the iPod Shuffle is "Leon."  The Kindle's voice is definitely more suited (relatively speaking) to the 'human' talker, and the iPod's to the replicant.  What a kick.

  See some background info if not familiar with Bladerunner but are interested in what they're doing here.

  I've moved the inline videoclip to my Kindle2 photos set at pbase because it holds up this page too much otherwise.  You can click on the opening small image or click here to play it with a small explanation there also. Below are ways to Share this post if you'd like others to see it.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
