Jeff Berg [1], in his IBM intranet blog [2], commented days ago on having used a Sony Reader: 'astounded at how much it looked like paper'. Like a book, it is not back-lit: comfortable to read for long periods, but requiring external light.

It was the first time that I heard about Sony Reader, but now both my back and my brain would love to own this gadget.

[1] I don't know how to link to Jeff. Here you have a link to his Beginning ActionScript 2.0 book and to his wondeful video of a Chicago building being teared down.

[2] Jeff's "Fight For The User" blog is, by far, the most visually interesting in our intranet. And it's not just pretty: lots of good posts on usability and information design. He does indeed fight for the user.
