Well, eInk is a trade name, I believe, and is possibly where the foolish construction eBook comes from. I am confident that the mid-stream capital will not survive the forces of everyday usage. Heck, the main reason I give iPad a capital letter is because I am writing this on an iPad and it does it itself. It's not like anyone doesn't understand me if I drop it.

I do feel that eBook was never a correct usage in the UK. Certainly I don't think I've ever seen it like that in print. I'd say it used to be e-book and now it's ebook, just like with email.
