eBook retreat

Author: JT Smith

"Did you hear about the grand new scheme from Gemstar, the makers of the Rocket eBook? They're dumping the old device, where you pulled books off the Internet, and swapping it for a dial-in system, so that the only way you can really get books from the web is by using Gemstar's servers. The new ebook, called the REB 1200, though coming with a USB cable, also comes with a convenient auto-dial feature that'll connect a built-in 33.6 analog to the Gemstar center, where the public can pay for many things." -Kelly McNeill
