eReader Incompetence Checklist

Craig Mod’s list of things an eReader should not do. Some of are painfully obvious and this one is my favorite.

Does a PDF export of your content provide a basically identical reading experience as your ereader? Would a PDF actually provide a better reading experience (zoomable, searchable, real text)? Then your ereader’s plagued by confused incompetence.

Tangentially, Craig is now collaborating with FlipBoard. Congrats Craig. I’m excited to see what happens.

The link is to a video, but the NYT has more. This reader is built on flexible plastic, unlike existing models, but the housing is still rigid. It's far from perfect, but it's a step in the right direction. It'll be out next year with a color version to follow in 2010.
