E-books – Love them? Hate them? They’re here to stay…

Stumbled upon this article that dissects why E-books are so ugly.

This is one of many articles I’ve seen- -the most poignant being the video of Angela St. James – and others – at the Oreilly forum, discussing why hardware should be developed for women. (In a word — pretty it up, Amazon!) and what do they do? They make what might as well be a clay tablet with the BIG DADDY DX. And I was so looking forward to owning a Kindle. My friend Jeannie Ruesch has been flaunting hers with much abandon. See, we love them even when they’re big, and gray and…well…ugly. We’ll bedazle the covers of the Sony Ereader. We’ll add a skin to cover up that blah exterior.

What do YOU want out of an e-reader… say, in ADDITION to some excellent books?  Read on! and leave a comment worthy enough, I might shoot you an e-book of your very own…
