It was the only way to choose something not "silo". Regarding
hardware quality, people mostly take kindle. I'm not sure if it's
so superior, but in stores, with similar price tag, hands go for
<guess_what>. Strategy for small company would be to have
personal contact with customers, run forums and irc channels,
debug device to user's taste.
I'm positive I'll read books via ereader for the rest of my life. It
is something that cannot be set back. What ereader? The one
that has good screen and that follows the way I use device. No
frills in that wish. I did not make decision for the next reader
yet and will do at the point when time comes. I have done my
part, I saved money to get it.
