POP-UP BOOKS!

Now seriously, THAT would be astounding! Happy

P.S. - I think the Kindle is a clever device (especially with the wireless access), but probably only for the avid reader. now...how long before someone hacks it to do wild and crazy things?...

Oh Shalin... :)

I would so love a Kindle - or even a Sony Reader. Why they haven't been released in Canada is beyond me. I mean, we can read you know!

I do think the whole EVDO idea is brilliant - in theory. Having a device to read newspapers on etc. really feels like the future. But paying 14 bucks to subscribe to the New York Times that updates once a day? That's definitely less cool.

my idea of the "e-pop-up book" feature was supposed to be mostly a whimsical yet progressive-entertaining idea. for all those amused...my job is done, for now... Wink

2 or 3 color laser holograms, nanotech, etc - comic books...

I think the whole pop-up or illusion of pop-up feature would be great for comic books. However, pushing the visual envelope also detracts a bit from literary works and doesn't exercise one's visual imagination if an image is just given to you...hmmm... so goes the evolution of content...

I'm not so sure it would help the Kindle. Then again...that angle might.
