Disappointing draw for Reggae Boyz … Costa Rica hold Jamaica to 1-1 result

first_imgJamaica’s Reggae Boyz were held to a 1-1 draw by Costa Rica in their key CONCACAF semi-final round FIFA World Cup qualifier inside the National Stadium last night. Goals in either half by Jamaican midfielder Je-Vaughn Watson and Costa Rica’s Johnny Acosta has left things interestingly poised in the group. The Jamaicans grabbed a deserved lead in the 16th minute after midfielder Watson went low to meet a teasing Kemar Lawrence cross at the back post, sending his header in the opposite direction. They could have been 2-0 up just before half time, but Clayton Donaldson could not make contact with a low cross by Joel McAnuff as the hosts looked comfortable in possession, while enjoying the better chances. Earlier, McAnuff missed one of several Jamaican opportunities as he wasted a glorious chance to send the Jamaicans ahead in the 8th minute, after he was found unmarked at the back-post after a flicked header, which came from a long throw by full back Lawrence. HALF-CHANCES The visitors ended the first half with a couple half-chances themselves, but were not able to break the Jamaican backline. They did, however, get the breakthrough in the 67th minute when Johnny Acosta latched on to a rebound to make it 1-1 after Joel Campbell’s shot was well saved by Jamaican goalkeeper Andre Blake. Both teams traded chances but neither could add to the scoreline, leaving the Jamaicans to deal with another disappointing result in front of their home crowd. The Jamaicans now sit on four points with the Costa Ricans improving to seven points. Haiti and Panama played out a 0-0 draw in the group’s other game. The Jamaicans will travel to Costa Rica where both teams will meet again on Tuesday.last_img read more

iRex Launches New Wireless eReader – Coming to a Best Buy Near You

first_imgTags:#E-Books#web IRex officially launched its new eReader today. As we reported last month, the iRex DR800SG will feature an 8.1-inch touchscreen with stylus navigation, and have wireless connectivity over Verizon’s network. The device, which will retail for $399, will be closely linked to Barnes & Nobles’ eBook store and users will be able to buy books from there over the wireless connection. Best Buy will carry these devices in its stores and will set aside space in its stores to showcase eReaders from iRex, Sony, and other eReader manufacturers.Who is iRex?As Forrester analyst Sarah Rotman Epps point out, iRex has to overcome some challenges because its brand is relatively unknown in the US. According to the New York Times, iRex wanted to release a Barnes & Noble branded version of the DR800SG, but those negotiations apparently didn’t go very far. At the same time, though, iRex also has some advantages, especially in Europe – a market that other vendors have mostly ignored for now. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts At this point, however, it’s not even really about the launch of yet another eReader anymore – with Amazon, Sony, Asus, iRex, Plastic Logic, Coolreaders, and a growing number of other contenders, the market is now wide open and competition is already bringing prices down. Prices now start at $149 for refurbished 1st generation Kindles and go up to $489 for the Kindle DX, with Amazon’s competitors hitting every price point in between. For most consumers, any price over $99 is still too high for an eReader, but then, hardware prices always come down sooner or later and it is only a matter of time before somebody is going to release a decent $99 eReader.At $399, the new iRex reader is obviously one of the more expensive readers on the market right now, though its price is in line with competing wireless eReaders like the Sony Reader Daily Edition. Sony, however, offers a real touchscreen on some of its high-end readers though, something iRex has disavowed for now because it reduces the contrast of the screen.Getting eReaders Into the MarketplaceAnother important aspect of this announcement is that Best Buy will now set apart some space in its stores to feature eReaders. Until now, Best Buy only sold eReader on its website. Even though public interest in eReaders is high, only a relatively small number of people have actually held one of these devices in their hands.
