E-Books test take 1

If you have read some of my previous posts, I am a big fan of the idea and potential of e-books.  My experience has shown that reality does not yet jive with the idea.  E-books are simply not easy to use or read (unless you have a Kindle/Sony e-book reader).  The DRM that I have encountered destroys the entire experience (not being able to print is ridiculous).

The venerable David Pogue of the NYTimes has written extensively on the subject.  He is doing a test.  Read about it here. David, I hope it works out for you.  It is a noble and brave test but as a lover of the future, I am glad to seeing you taking the ultimate plunge.  Much luck.

When the Kindle 2 comes out, I hope someone might buy me one (*hint hint*).
