As someone else already said, "resent" is too strong a term, but I do resent being tied to one supplier for content on these electronic gadgets. (If you haven't read Jaron Lanier's "You are Not a Gadget" or Jonathan Zittrain's "The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It" you really should!)
I got a non-wireless Sony Reader (actually two of them) specifically because I wanted to have a selection in my sources of books. (Thanks, too, to Apprentice Alf and Calibre!)
I only got a smartphone (Android) when I switched my mobile service to a "bargain brand" that offered unlimited calling to 40 countries plus 3 GB a month for the same price I had been paying for 1 hour of calls-only with no Internet access. And I bought an "entry level" smart phone for about 1/4 the price of an iPhone and only really use the "smart" features for keeping track of my agenda, maintaining a to-do list and running a favorite shopping list program I used to have on my PDA. I have the (free) apps for a couple of magazines I subscribe to, but prefer downloading the content to my reader using Calibre - sure, I have to do so via my PC, but I don't find that a huge inconvenience cause it assures that I've charged the reader, too.
