i like the idea of digital reading that does not strain the eyes. i wish i could afford an ebook reader.

i wish the amazon kindle was available at wal-mart. wal-mart is the new sanctuary of this young century. does anyone think apple will top the kindle?

what none of them have done well yet is let you see thru them while still being able to put a img on the screen.

To be honest I believe the OLPC XO is already an almost perfect OEPC as well. And I predict that as the costs come down eventually we will see more child-oriented laptops that can double as ebook readers. The advantage of this over a dedicated device is that kids could also use it for their homework... a fact I think is more likely to attract parents, and make them seem like less of a luxury item with low income families (or even developing nations).
