And yeah, I think dedicated readers will eventually die out,
Maybe so, but I certainly hope not. Multi-function = multi-glitch. I won't be making the leap to a Tablet (or anything like a Tablet) anytime soon--if ever. And I'm certainly not going to read on a device with a backlit screen less than 6" like a cell-phone. As for who might eventually win the format war... I just don't care.
