Amazon.com came out with a electronic book reading device called the Kindle a few years ago priced at $300. It started to sell and then Barnes and Noble made one called the Nook, and it sold. Now Apple has recently unveiled the Ipad $899 and the Applites are going bananas. Basically it is a Kindle with color and the ability to play games and look at pictures. I see the advantages to having an electronic reader versus a library of actual books, but I still don't think I need one. Final analysis Kindle good idea from Amazon, Ipad updated version from Apple. I will not be purchasing either one anytime soon. This technology does change the way to purchase and sell information and pushes for e-delivery which is interesting.
