FYI for anyone that wants it here is a partial translation:

Quote:
The introduction: “a firm related to Philips” … “invented epaper, which might make all this superfluous.” [points at printing presses]

[Explanation of how the electronic paper works; click the image of a newspaper article, and the article will be displayed. The device uses only very little electricity.]

Voice over: “Are regular paper readers as enthusiastic as the reporter?”

Lady behind the register: “Sure, looks OK.”

Blond lady: “I often go to the beach, and a big newspaper is clumsy to hold there, whereas this,” [she accidentally drops a 650 US$ Irex Iliad to the floor] “does not flap in the wind.”

Older man: “That’s not for me, I cannot read it.”

Sitting smoker: “I prefer regular paper.”

Interviewer: “Why is that?”

Sitting smoker: “Well, because I can take it whenever … er, OK, I can also take this,” [points to the Iliad] “whenever I want of course … er, I think it is just a matter of habit.”

The reporter then has to wrap up with an obligatory conclusion: “But a regular paper, on a Saturday morning, at the breakfast table: I would not want to miss that yet.”

My take: I do not see why the breakfast table couldn’t also be the electronic newspaper.
(Translation nicked from Teleread: http://www.teleread.org/blog/?p=4498 )

In all fairness to eeloh, I couldn't fine any record of it over here.

I knew I had seen it before on Teleread, and it's a different link so he wouldn't have known.
