Sony lent me a Daily Edition

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up. I got the PRS-900 at a private dinner with Sony Thursday night. They gave them out as party favors.

I've been using it and I think I've already formed an opinion. I think I'm going to let the review wait for a while so I can reevaluate.

As it stands, I don't like the Daily Edition.

Uh-oh. Did they "lend" it to you or "give" it to you?

Love it or not, you have to admit, it was a great party favor. Much better than a balloon and a horn.

I have to return it. But you have to admit, that was a good line.

A most excellent line! Can you return it in.... oh say... a year? (so that we all get to play with it... shhhh)

I sure wish I'd been at that dinner party!! I'd slip my 8-gig card in it real fast.
I'm sure I'd rather crash that dinner party than the one at the White House.

Try to keep in mind as you re-evaluate that it's a large(r anyway) format device that allows annotations with handwriting, that is quite a bit cheaper than the Que is or the Skiff is likely to be. My Mazda 5 has been a great car for me, but I probably wouldn't think much of it if I had been given it to review after getting to test drive something a lot "sexier" (and more expensive).

So can you expand on your dislike for the Daily Edition? Has your view changed at all?

He may be traveling home today (hope he doesn't get stuck in some snow place). Maybe we'll get his report later today or tomorrow.

I am going to expand on my opinion. After all, I was given the Daily Edition so I could write a review. I just want to wait until I have more energy. I'm still recovering from CES.

BTW, I just noticed that you can tell how worn out I am by plotting the length of the news stories I've written in the last few days. The length decreases with my energy level.

OT but we love our Mazda 5. Its a fantastic little car. I drive the much sexier RX-8 most of the time and still enjoy our 5

Now when you say "given" are we talking loan-given or given-given? Im still a little unclear on the term "Party Favor"
