Second Generation E-Ink. Faster, Brighter, Cheaper.

While the first round of $300 e-books were impressive (I enjoyed my Sony Librie until it's firmware went all nuts and I couldn't get support from Japan), there's a new bunch of e-readers on theglobalobservatory.org the horizon that might make life quite a bit more awesome for all of us.

{mosimage}

Some more encouraging news on the digitization front. Since it turns out that it's so much easier to move electrons (and photons) than atoms (wires vs trucks...wires always win) we're very excited whenever companies start offering formerly physical products in purely digital form.
