On E-Books

I never wanted to jump into this debate, but after recently handling a Kindle and an Ipad I will say the following:

1) Paper books never run out of batteries and are (after a few hours of drying under a fan) to some extent water-resistant.

2) Note to developers: improve the interface! Every time I read an e-book I have to resist the urge to edit and proofread the text.

3) Are these devices really more eco-friendly? Being made out of non-biodegradable plastic?

4)"Woo-hoo! 2000 books to take on vacation/ business trip!" Errm, really? How *long* is your vacation/ trip? You'll spend most of it jetlagged and passed out. Want to read an e-book while lying on the beach? See 1)

Agree! Agree! Agree! Agree! I also love the smell of books too. Ipads don't smell very good. =D
