Yea, just finished "If Chins Could Kill - Confessions of a B Movie Actor" by Bruce Campbell and it was good but more for people wanting to break into hollywood. "Make Love" is more just Bruce talking about the crazy shit he's seen/done in his life. Friggin awesome.

Fuck that. Once we have those super thin 8x10 Star Trek digital tablets that we can carry everywhere, I'll be totally with you... until then, no fucking way.

They HAD a $500 model and no one wanted it. Now they have to enhance the $600 model's storage room, pack in a free game just to sell it for $500. And 10 ot 1 odds are not even this plan will help move this piece of shit. It's not worth $600 or $500. Stop packing in needless peripheral features into these game consoles. I don't need news channels or DVD players installed. They just jack the price up for features no one needs.

1. Who wants to read a book on their computer screen?
2. If you have some sort of digital tablet to read digital books it is probably expensive.
3. And then reading books on an lcd screen hurts your eyes after a while.
4. You are widening the knowledge gap between the poor and rich. If you need digital devices to read books and the poor cannot afford them, then you are making it harder for them to have access to knowledge. Not even mentioning books simply read for entertainment, which you area also taking away.

I do support creating digital backups of librarys, or perhaps the option to buy digital copies of books. But don't get rid of printed material. I enjoy taking vacations to a cabin in the mountains with no TV/Video games/Music/computers. And just hiking and reading books.

I need every single feature, and I bought mine during launch. Just because you're poor doesn't mean other people aren't

look into digital ink screens. Once that takes off, ebooks will be MUCH more common IMHO
