Gino, of course there is nothing wrong with changing one's mind.

But if someone claims "e-books are destined for failure", this person needs to have some very good arguments to support his controversial claim. So what were his arguments?
  1. E-books are expensive (hardware costs hundreds of dollars)
  2. Everyone already has alternatives (PC, Tablet PC, notebook, PDA)
  3. People love paper books (it's their "human nature", they love to touch paper, to escape from the electronic screens they look at all day, to give books as gifts, they don't want to curl up with a battery-operated plastic screen)

Now we got the Kindle. But what has really changed in respect to his arguments?

When I talk about journalistic integrity, I talk about common journalistic standards which include objectivity and a balanced point of view.
