The medium and the message

Traditional book is quickly becoming just one of the formats of the future book:

Donald Norman, a Northwestern University professor and an expert on design and engineering, said that while E Ink's technology is well suited for reading long books, "it is too slow and ponderous" for reference works, multimedia and any tablet device that seeks to connect to a wide range of entertainment. He said that to respond to the iPad, Amazon could either drop the price of the current Kindle or "compete and switch to some other type of display."
