Sony instroduced eink the year before, but I never noticed and I imagine most other people missed it as well. Amazon already had a huge base of customers to market to directly, many of whom were already buying books.
Thank-you. But it's too late now. The problem was I was writing under a deadline. I needed answers quickly. What I *wanted* to do was come here and ask somebody (and as you have proven, that would have worked), but I just didn't have the time.

Oh, and then someone posted a comment under the article saying I sounded like I didn't know what I was talking about. Which would have been fine except they insinuated that I'm 13 years old (I'm 42).
