Making E-Books Safe for the Toilet
Microsoft and its allies are no doubt thinking long-term -- during a recession there's little market for a $2,000 computer that gives readers an opportunity to spend money for onscreen versions of magazines they're already reading for free online. The hope here -- as it was for earlier failed generations of e-book readers (does anyone even remember the Rocket eBook?) -- seems to be that people will gradually get used to reading in a new way, at least in niche areas like technology, and will eventually be willing to pay for the privilege, once the underlying systems improve and go down in price.
Even if the software gets better and the hardware becomes less expensive, there are three crucial issues Microsoft and the publishers must address before tablet PCs can be attractive to paying subscribers.
