The Sony Reader made an appearance on Jeopardy! tonight.

I don't know how many people watched tonight's show, but the Sony Reader made an appearance in one of the "clue crew" answers. I thought it was pretty cool.

Unfortunately it was one of the older model. Still pretty neat to see the Reader on it.

Did you get the answer? What is gray-scale.

Is "Jeopardy" a television programme?

It is a very popular game show here in the US.

Is it that one where they tell you the "answer" and the contestant has to supply the "question"? I've never seen it myself, but it appears a lot as "background" to other American TV shows which we get here in the UK.

I saw it, too. I don't remember the question, because I was too busy telling my husband to look at the reader on the screen!
