I found the video below through a tweet from @newspaperman and it got me thinking of the advance of technology. I recently bought a Sony Reader (PRS 505) and have been following the reviews and critiques. I’ve been reading eboks for years, started on a Palm Pilot black and white, then a Zire71 and just graduated to the Sony Reader. I love it, I love the portability of ebooks, and am fascinated with the technology. There is, and always has been, a segment of readers, writers, reviewers, who say that ebooks and the readers will never take a significant, important place in people’s world. I disagree. To wit, I offer this video on cell phones. They said it would never take. Too clunky. Too difficult to use. Ha.
I love the geeky-looking computer user at the end. Those either weren’t supposed to take.
