I’ve been looking at e-readers and have it down to the upcoming Foxit eSlick and Sony PRS505. I simply ruled out Amazon.com’s Kindle due to the potential vendor lock on my reading material. Really what I want is a portable PDF viewer, other formats would be nice but not required. If I can just connect the device to the computer, have it recognized as a USB mass storage device, then copy my PDFs over that would be just swell. The readers at iRex look good also but expensive.

Conclusion (for me): Mercurial (hg)
The killer application for managing my projects is Trac and Hg worked fairly well with it. I installed Trac 0.12dev with Multiple Repository Support and the mercurial-plugin-0.12, converted my Subversion repository, and it pretty much worked as expected. A Bazaar plugin exists trac-bzr, but it appears that it doesn’t work with bzr >= 1.6, suffers performance issues, and isn’t supported by the experimental Trac 0.12dev with multiple repository support. Therefore, the choice become obvious pretty quickly.
