You know this article kind of spoilsÂ the announcement of the Plastic Logic eReader’sÂ impending release by disclosing that USA Today has ‘e-inked’ a content deal with them. How can they beÂ impartial reporting on this topic? USA Today has a vested interest. So theÂ online version of a struggling newspaper likesÂ the Plastic LogicÂ eReader. Since they hopeÂ this eReader will save them from extinction,Â it’s hardly surprising thatÂ they’re impressed by the thing. Read the Plastic Logic story here.Â The same murky integrity surroundedÂ the New York Times’ positive impression of the Kindle DX because they’ve got a content deal with Amazon.
I mentioned Plastic Logic’s eReading machine back in January before any mention of content deals and as machinery goes, it’s a beautiful piece of tech. Take a look, yah?
