Electronic Paper Takes a Bow

Is this the pocket book of the future? It's still a bit small, too thick, and pricey to my mind, but we are getting there. Maybe a few more years and bookshelves will be replaced with stacks of DVDs. What I would really like to see is the free availability of some classic texts that are no longer under copyright. And maybe Knuck can get his copy of the 1911 Britannica, green cover optional.

And if you are an inveterate tinkerer, here are instructions on how to construct your own "fluffy soap" mouse.
