I was watching the most recent episode of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse on Fox, and had to rewind the DVR to make sure I heard right. A video-game mogul was telling an FBI agent (far left) how times had changed and no one would would automatically take the agent’s word over the mogul’s. He says something to the effect of: “You try to bring me in, and the judge will throw the Kindle at you.” Yes, folks, the judge will throw the Kindle at you.
On the subway on the way home from work Friday, a man sitting next to me was reading something in Korean on his Sony Reader. The DH has recently discovered the joys of Kindle editions for his iPhone (though we were both surprised that the book he bought ended up costing $14.95; what happened to the highly touted $9.95 prices?). B&N recently bought Fictionwise. Sony is adding 500,000 public-domain titles that have already been digitized by Google to its library. The digital initiative is only going to grow, and luckily for all of us, it seems to be getting easier and easier to try it out.
