Reading On E-Paper

Amazon is pushing a new device they call the Kindle. It's wireless, can hold more than 200 titles, is smaller than a hardcover, is as tall as a fresh pencil, and promises a slew of other features that previous electronic-book-readers never carried. Sounds like a good thing to bring with you while traveling (but then you'll probably also be lugging your laptop, your cellphone, your mp3 player, your camera, your vidcam,...so really, it's another thing to carry, if you think about it; but better than carrying around 200 pocketbooks). I think the important thing is that the screen reads like the words are printed on paper. Otherwise, the glare of a back-lit screen can only hurt the eyes.

*covets it*

Now if only it didn't cost as much as around 50 paperbacks XP

I agree, pvc. "Covet" is the word. But at US$400.00?! Sigh... But it's tempting. Gadget-lust is an evil thing.
