I hope there'll always be a read-only device -- hopefully, one day hanging bubble-wrapped at the supermarket checkout for thirty bucks. I work all day, every day with all the bells-and-whistles on my PC, laptop and netbook: when I go to bed at night or take a break during the day, I want to leave all that behind and be tempted to do nothing but read a darned good book.
Hmmm ... this post is remarkably like those arguments we hear ad nauseum from stick-in-the-mud treebook readers who won't even try ebook reading because it dents their comfort zone. Sorry. Neil
