I wish the reporting was a little more exacting but...

Just way too many discussed topics that were a little disturbing. I really received the feeling that "they" were the "Big" guys looking down/discussing "us" the "little" guys.

..."Big" guys need to get out there quick to find a way to securely control and charge for content before "free" gets to be too expected.

...an eReader that would strive to be a better "Kindle" and especially since you would have to pay for content. (news / etc)

.....trying to find a way to stop free viewing of internet content (news / shows)... maybe if you already pay for home service you could view online for free .... but not if you don't use home subscriptions?

... trying to find a way around Google grabbing content for free viewing...

O.K., I don't know if I interpreted the above correctly but I am having flash-backs to the time when we all laughed about having to actually PAY for television. I am, also, thinking forward to a possibility of paying an additional fee on top of my regular internet connection just to continue what I do now.

Could have more details in the reports, but if anyone can bring EBooks to the masses, it's Murdoch.

I can already see the potential, Fox news simultaneously broadcasted for ebook readers?
I guess Murdoch also wants all of his trashy mags as ebooks.
