Sony e-Book with electronic paper
The Sony Reader also works with PDFs and plain text. In the last few years I have more frequently offered both static and dynamically generated PDFs of content on web portals that I work on. The ability to have a watch list of web sites, automatically gather material for a device like a Sony Reader sounds like a winner. Not counting play time on Slashdot, Reddit, etc., I usually have to spend several hours a week reading papers and other technical information from the web. The Sony Reader looks like a better alternative to balancing a laptop or (what I often do) print material in draft mode for offline reading.
