sses how the iPad has created an extraordinary opportunity for publishers because iPad is more than eReader, it’s a multi-purpose device that also functions as a wi-fi enabled laptop.
‘I recently heard of a fellow in Boston, a friend of a colleague, who was an early adopter of Amazon’s Kindle e-reader. When he first bought his Kindle, he was eager to show it off, frequently bringing it to coffee houses to bask in the glow of adulation from curious onlookers.
Then came the iPad.
This gentleman now does his Kindle reading in the privacy of his home, embarrassed to bring his relic out in public. He has what I call “Kindle Shame.”’
You can read the whole blog on FOLIO. Is there anyone else suffering from Kindle Shame?!
