Jan. 28, 2011— -- Electronic books may have reached a tipping point.

Amazon says it now sells more Kindle books than paperbacks, a whopping 115 E-Books for every 100 paperbacks. Amazon also sells three times as many Kindle books as hardcover books.

Uncomplicated Bluetooth Headsets

Tired of complicated Bluetooth headsets? Innovative new designs make chatting wirelessly far easier.

USA Today's Ed Baig tried out the Jawbone Era and Plantronics Voyager.

"In the case of the Jawbone, there's an accelerometer that detects motion. And so again, if you tap it, you can answer a call," Baig said.

"In terms of the Plantronics, it too has sensor that can detect what the device is held up to your ear or when it's on a desk." He said both worked as advertised when he tested them.

The Jawbone costs $130 and the Voyager goes for $200.
