A little more on E-Books & E-Paper from the RegisterAmazon gets into bed with MicrosoftBy: Kieren McCarthy;Posted: 29/08/2000 at 17:07 GMThttp://www.theregister.co.uk/content/6/12888.htmlWhy aren't we singing the praises of online books? Well, this gives us the opportunity to state our philosophy of e-books to a wider public than old blokes in pubs. The fact is that just about everyone alive at the moment has the paper mentality - that being that they are more comfortable with the notion of something on paper. The effect of this is that for any text requiring high mental processes, we need it on paper. ....We remember a few people going on about electronic paper - which doesn't have a light source behind it - but that all seems to have gone a bit quiet. E-books simply won't take off until this paper is available.
