want a little of everything? go with the ipad

don't car about browsing and just wanna read? get a nook or kindle

i have the ipad right now but am not entirely happy with it so gonna wait a few months to see what the palmpad or slate have to offer and then probably sell the ipad for one of the other machines.

If it's just for reading, I'll go with an E-reader. Sony has some good and affordable ones.

If it's to do more stuff, just get a damn laptop which will allow you to do everything the ipad does and more.

Just get an Evo, its a sweet phone, and reading is a breeze on it too. Its a lot smaller than clumbsy iPad and e-Readers, but plenty big enough to read on.

If you plan on reading in sunlight get a dedicated e-book reader.

I have a kindle and both me and my gf use it all the time. She downloads books and I read the WSJ mostly.


That being said, the Kindle we got was almost $500. We got it before the Ipad came out, so I may have leaned towards an Ipad for that kind of money.

Then he'd just grab the E-reader and walk out. The police would arrive at his home approximately 16 minutes later

But how does Speedy Claxton fit into this scenario? Is he working at the bookstore now?
