I wandered into Waterstone's today and they had a Sony e-reader you could play with.
1: It is UGLY.
2: When you "turn a page" the screen kind of fades to black and then comes back again on the next page. That would really bug me after a while.
3: The second page I read had two words joinedtogether like so...That's just shoddy.
I left feeling fully vindicated in our dismissal of this ridiculous toy, a classic example of a pointless technology.
If it ain't broke and has been around for thousands of years...
