Hi-tech Tome Takes on Paperbacks

Jonathan Fildes, BBC News, Aug 25, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It's like this thing that never dies: the e-book returns with a new brand (Hewlett Packard) and a new sales pitch (it can hold a whole library) but it's still the same single-function device it always was. If you want to do anything with text other than read it, this device is not for you. Then again, if you want something reasonable portable and with cute page-turning graphics, then you might be convinced to fork over for this latest in the e-book line. Chances are, though, the minute you want to clip an excerpt for a friend you will realize what a mistake you've made.
