So, once again, I've let myself become entranced by a gadget

iRex Digital Reader 1000 S

And it's a mere $750!


What?


Don't look at me like I'm crazy. :s_wacko

Well, this one has a number of features that make it a cut above the Kindle that I've been watching for a long while. It's larger by about 4", has 4x the gray scale of the Kindle, and is 1024 x 1280 vs 800 x 600 resolution.

One of my major uses for it would be as a gaming tool to hold everything from game books to PDF versions of my notes, and unlike the Kindle, I can write on it, which gets saved in an associated txt file. This all tells me that I may have found my e-reader.

That is fancy. I think that I'll be adopting this technology roughly five years after I get an iPod, which is likely itself five or so years away.

An actual iPod? Yeah those are overpriced, but non-iPod MP3 players are pretty good. I'm partial to my Creative Zen (which is a couple years old now), personally.

I've been looking at digital readers for a while now and am hoping I'm going to be able to get one of these.

I'm going to wait until a PDF reader built like your avatar's headpiece comes out Phishy. That way I can enjoy Playboy on the move

Your wish is granted: Video Eyewear

I dunno about reading Playboy, but you can watch it with those.
