One of those might appeal to hundreds of users, the other perhaps millions.
Hey it's a value judgement, if you find doing that is worth $10 or whatever amazon charges you, that's your call. But, I for one am tired of people being afraid of computers. I mean come one, switching on a computer, connecting a reader, launching an app and clicking a button, really isn't that hard.
And the "little bit of scripting skill" is only needed if you want to automate launching the app and clicking the button when the reader is connected.
