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'll have to check out his review. It should be good for a few laughs.
