I just tried the Sony reader and, checked out the kindle yesterday. I have to say that the Sony one is easier to use, but amazon's kindle has
something that I'd say gives me more appeal. It is white and so is the background, so it just looks more like a book, also, I found it to be easier
on my eyes, in terms of font aesthetics, just nicer. The Sony e-reader was used by just clicking with your finger on the screen to select a title.
There were ten titles on one reader! Anyways, the kindle did too. But the kindle had a built in 'keyboard' where you could type with your thumbs
or fingers- if you have little fingers.
I noticed that an old guy at the library commented to me as I was browsing the digital stacks, that he wanted to get one of those for his wall street
journal, so that he didn't have to wait at the end of his driveway at five in the morning to get his news. Ugg, some people just want the print,
right, why download it to one of these at five am when you just get the paper copy.
