Ebooks Have Taken Over all my electronics!


http://picasaweb.google.com/flushing...eat=directlink
they are everywhere!.

My PSP (CFW and BOOKr)
My Nintendo DS (Flashcart and Moonshell)
My 42" TV (just plugged into my PC)
My At&t Tilt (MobiPocket Reader for PPC)
My MP3 Player (Iaudio X5, its Old, but it was better than Ipods at the time)
And Last, but Not least my PRS 700.

Note, I ran out of Electronics, I did not find a single device of mine i couldnt put an ebook on!

That pic of the NDS made me think why a device with two back-lighted color LCD, one of them touch sensitive, last so many hours, with sound...

...while the ereaders with touch screen see such a decrease in battery life. Maybe they should check out Nintendo's touch screen technology

then NDS Lithium ion battery delivering five to 19 hours of play on up to a three-hour charge. though I Ussully get close to 3 with max backlight.

An Irex lasts over 10 i think.

Battery life drops significantly as the backlight and sound are increased. That's why I usually leave my DSL at the lowest possible setting. (which is fine for playing indoors with the curtains closed)

Also consider that, even when combined, screen area is a lot smaller than is typical for dedicated ebook devices.

On a slightly related note, my sister is letting me have her old DS so I can get that cool cooking game (not cooking mama, the one that actually tells you what to cook).
