New device for reading

Post  Cpt. Crinkle on 12/29/2009, 08:54

There is this new device that is around that you put books on. This causes the use of less paper and it's lighter than a bunch of textbooks. The only reason I would get this is to put textbooks on it to reduce weight of textbooks. This also would be nice for long trips rather than taking a bunch of books. At home I still prefer the old books made with paper.

That's a good question, I think that yes in fact I do, because I just like the feel of a book in my hand I suppose. But I could see where digital books would be good though, because they take up a lot less space to store and such.

Yes, but it could be like when you look at computer screen for a long time if you read too long on it. Ever think of that?

Yeah getting "zonked" as I call it, you feel kinda out of it, and your eyes are all strained. Yup using a digital screen would do that to you.

Yeah after awhile it does me too. Probably because your focusing so intently on something so close to your eyes.

Your eyes get tired faster looking at a screen to long.

I would say so yes. After a period of time my brain just says "stop" and wants to focus on something more real. Although apparently these digital book readers are becoming quite popular.

Well google sketchup is a cad program, and I speak from experience they can be very addicting, especially when you need to get a project done. Shocked My record on the computer consequitively is only like 6-8 hours.
