nice one, @3
If it is named Rosebud and comes in yellow, I might buy it. However, the big question I asked myself is why would a newspaper company do such a thing? Then I remembered a post that I read on one of the Boing Boings about a story in the Silicon VAlley Insider, stating that printing the NYT costs about twice as much as just giving every subscriber a Kindle. What if the Hearst corporation read that too? Maybe they are smart?
will it be called Rosebud?
I have a better idea… rather than make one like the kindle or the reader, make one that’s affordable and can handle plain PDFs.
Subscribe to the NYT for a year. Get a Kindle free.
the monitor will show text in yellow.
@1 No, Xanadu.
In fact, this is old news. @3 Xanadu would indeed be a good name (with Ted Nelson’s permission, of course) but it’s too long: what about simply the K-book?
