the death of e-books. Are e-books really dead? I think they were kind of ahead of their time. They happened before the big ciscontinuity in consumer needs, and then they didn't offer the same kind of interconnectivity that other books did.

But I think this market is going to be one to watch in the next three to five years. Despite Yahoo's best efforts.

I found this quote really funny:

"One problem is that e-books are up against a very established technology, namely books. And most people are very happy with that technology."
