Just read a story on TechCrunch that confirms the most delicious rumor: Apple plans to launch a large-screen iPod touch this fall. ZOMG! Can you imagine getting an e-book from iTunes and reading it on a 7 or 9 inch screen?



  1. I wasn't all that impressed with the Kindle in the first place -- buying a reader that uses a proprietary format, and makes you jump through hoops to convert, is ridiculous. If they discontinue, go under, upgrade to something radically different -- which plenty of computer manufacturers have done, and this is just a more limited version of computer hardware -- you could be left with hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of unreadable e-books. Umm, no.

    That said, I'm not an Apple fan either. I'll keep reading my e-books on my desktop and laptop until something comes along that satisfies my admittedly picky self.


  2. I agree.

    And really? I'm Old Skool. Nothing's better than holding a real book in your hands.
