The original shot had no context, no real indication how big it was, and the lighting of the shot wasn't very appealing:
When I saw that with the keyboard, I equated "keyboard" with big, which meant a big and bulky device.
But as I said, I'm sure my shots above do worse than better! I'm not a professional photographer; my "expertise" usually ends with photos for e-bay and blogging. But putting it in some sort of context helps, which is why I placed it side-by-side with the Cybook. One of the first shots I saw of the Cybook was it placed on top of looked like a book-club edition soft-cover (book-club editions are usually a little bigger than normally, but not as big as hard-cover), and that helped gain some sort of visual clues about it.

I listen to TWIT and sometimes Cranky Geeks and John is just getting annoying at this point. He hates almost everything - maybe he thinks it helps to promote himself or maybe he is just out of touch with tech reality. He is turning into a old fart luddite to the point that I no longer pay any attention to his opinion.

I didn't realize he did a Kindle review, though I should have expected it. I don't think anyone pays attention to Dvorak as a pundit; he's become the Don Rickles of tech journalism, and people read his invectives for their entertainment value rather than their insight.
I'll have to check out his review. It should be good for a few laughs.
