    Kindle and Artrage

    I just got a Kindle. Borders here is closing and I read everyday. What an amazing little machine. I can even show off my artrage artworks on it albeit, in black and white. I just e-mail them to my kindle e-mail. I can also view this forum on it. TJ/////////

    Hi Tony, they are great machines. Had mine for a couple of months for using on the train. Although occasionally I have been forced back to 'dead tree technology' when my son borrows it

    I posted a screen shot of what the forum looks like here:

    I got the Kobo about a year ago because of its support for the .epub open ebook standard.

    E-ink is a beautiful thing, I much prefer it to what jono calls 'the old dead tree' format, its really nice if your eyes are tired that you can just scale up the text too.

    I think i've read more in the last year than the previous ten due to this nifty device.

    That's great! Is there no way to change from the b&w though? Seems a pity

    The beauty of these devices lies in the fact that you're able to store 1000's of novels in the space of less than one. Also that the e-ink is very easy on the eye unlike reading off the high contrast of a monitor, ipad, tablet etc. Books don't suffer from dogears, stains, faults in the letterforms etc that well-loved paperbacks/hardcovers do.

    Colour E-ink has been invented and is on sale in Japan... however its around 8x the cost of the Kobo or Kindle is hardly worth the investment for seeing a bookcover in colour.

    Give it a couple of years until they come down to a price that is reasonable.

    If you were wanting a device to view glossy magazines or a colourful internet it would be better to get one of the ipad or android devices designed specifically for these types of tasks, which at a lower cost will display colour content much better than colour e-ink does as well as offer more functionality than an e-reader.

    I just tried it on my Nook BW, 1st gen and it's not as clear as the kindle example. The lighter link colors wash out on the eink.
