E-book writes its 2nd chapter, ITnews AU
Thought this article from ITnews Australia is quite interesting...
I have narrowed the contenders for my first dedicated ereader to the Onyx Boox 60 and the Kindle 2. The Boox does more for only a little extra in cost, so it is edging ahead. But all these new offerings just over the horizon.....

I am with you completely on the "DRM is evil" and this goes for all types not just ebooks. It doesn't actually stop pirating (nor even slows it down). All it does is raise cost on both ends. And adds frustration to honest paying customers who just want to buy and enjoy it. DRM is truly a no win situation. How the majority of these decision makers don't see this I truly have no idea.
