Occasional tech blogging

Congratulations, Amazon: you've made a device even crappier, more customer-hostile, and more bogged down with stupid restrictions than Sony. I barely imagined that was possible.

Amazing. Amazon makes an e-book reader, and then gives no compatibility -- NONE WHATSOEVER -- for PDF files. The Sony Reader is looking better all the time.

What bugs me the most? Paying $10 for an electronic book - and then only being able to store 200 of them.

First, I pay $10 for a paperback copy of a book, and second, after I've bought that copy I can keep it as long as I like. There are no restrictions on the number of books I can own. I'd need at least 6 readers to hold my current library, at a cost of $2400.

I think I'll spend the money on 240 more books instead.
