E-books lack the magic of the real thing - National Times - Sydney Morning Herald

Quote:
Online sales giant Amazon brags that it sold more e-books on Christmas Day than the physical variety. Amazon's own version of the e-book, the dubiously named Kindle, had become “the most gifted item ever in our history”. So said chief executive Jeff Bezos, displaying a disturbing disregard for the English language. The most gifted item ever? I can only shake my head in dismay, look lovingly at my friends sitting nobly on my shelves and promise that I will not betray them.

Don't worry, it's our favorite latter-day Luddite Gabriella. If she had a whit of intelligence, she might be dangerous - but I doubt it!
