    clever, but pointless imo as I like the "experience" of actually holding a book in my hands.

    just another example of "we've got the answer, now what's the problem". pointless pervasive technology

    Looks like one of those datapad thingys off Star Trek...

    Now if they could come up with a similar device, but make it look, feel, and behave like a proper book... that would be pretty cool.

    Not to my taste as I'd just get distracted. I'd prefer just to read a book.

    Probably the most perfect answer you'll get to your question Asim. Unless you don't have fingers to turn the pages then it's a waste of money.

    Crap. I hate reading off screens - if I need to read something I print it out.

    Will it fall open on the pages with the rude bits, if not then it's of little use is it?
