Rusty, I am very interested in the PlasticLogic reader, but still might want to curl up with a Kindle for literary reading, as opposed to scanning material for work environments. I can\'t wait to get my hands on one. Thanks for the link and your comment

Dorian, I didn\'t upload the episode until just before midnight last night - later than I shoot for but still within my self-imposed deadline of midnight Fridays. I see it\'s in my iTunes directory now, so you should see it there as well. Thanks for listening!
