Don't forget that computers are SSSSSSSSSSSSLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW..............................
Turning pages in an ebook is mind-bogglingly frustrating. Anything over 0.1 seconds to turn a page is just tooooooooooo slow.
Paper is FAST. You can flip from anywhere to anywhere far faster than you can with any electronic book.
Before I bought my tablet, I looked at the Kindle... I wanted to stab myself in the face because it would have been less painful.
PDF? Oh god! Save us! PDF is like the Anti-Christ of digital print in portable computing. It's not meant for portable computing - it's meant for print. And it shows.
MOBI and ePUB are far, far, far superior to PDF for mobile computing. They work. But they are still slow in comparison to paper.
The paper book there - you can flip through the pages and there you have it, then you can glance up at the slow computer for anything interactive.
It really is sort of a strange marriage of digital and physical, but it's just so darn cool~!
You get the benefits of both media at the same time. Have you cake AND eat it~!
Nom nom nom~!
