E-readers

July 21, 2009

Last week I was having a look at what is available on the market to read documents in a more efficient way than on a full laptop (heavy, weak battery, average readability).

I found nothing which was meeting my technical requirements and of reasonable price. The kindle wasn’t in a bad place in the list of readers, but it felt awkward and worrying to have so smart a reader, so tightly integrated to a web service.

Fast forward this week, and I learn that amazon used that tight integration to nuke books on people’s own shelves! I’ll just end that blog post before reaching Godwin’s point…
