New Way of An eBook-Reader
February 4, 2013 § Leave a comment
A new product presented by Popularlibros.com via YouTube proposes another approach towards modern-day data storage and knowledge aquisition. Please take a look at the presentation:
Even though Amazon has just started selling their ebook-readers founded upon new paperwhite technology, BOOK seems to have it built in, with no fuss about it. It’s also non-power-dependent, cheaper and makes reading more “natural”.
But don’t get too excited. BOOK seems to have some hidden disadvantages that are not easy to spot at first glance.
Firstly, although BOOK has a handy bookmark system, it does not provide any search options. It is said that there are rare attempts to equip BOOKs with such features, but they are not very efficient. Searching is based on printed keywords with page numbers, so that someone looking for something specific can find where particular keywords are used.
Secondly, BOOKs can take up much space. One is no big deal, but if you want to have more of them? You’d probably need special furniture for storage!
Thirdly, once they are printed, you have limited options of editing.
Conclusion? By a long shot, I don’t think they can beat ebook-readers.
