En god anledning att köpa en iPad

Steve Gillmor:

So I bought or was given the John Lennon autobiography by Philip Norman a few years ago. I read it in fits and starts, right up until someone (maybe me, maybe not) spilled coffee on it and saturated the first third of a very long book. I spent an hour separating the pages and drying them individually so as not to lose too much of the narrative.

Then the iPad arrived, I downloaded the book from the Kindle app, and never touched the paper version again. Moral: you own the print version as in You Break It You Buy It. I own the coffee-stained stuck-together pages where John met Paul and decided to bring him in even though he would ultimately take over and spend weeks on Maxwell’s Silver Hammer.

I read about this on the iPad.

Jag bokstavligen talat drömmer om att kunna köpa böcker till iPad. Verkligen. Försöker hitta tid att sätta mig och läsa “In The Plex”, Steven Levys senare bok om Google, men när har jag tid? Inte tar jag med mig den där tegelstenen var jag än går, men min iPad 2 är alltid med mig.
