    I can already do that with my smartphone though. Amazon released a kindle app for Android phones that lets you download tons of free classic literature. There's other eBook apps for Android and iPhone as well that offer free classic literature, so it's not something exclusive to the eReader market.

    There's other factors as well of course, which I may not even be aware of. Based on what little I know about eReaders, I haven't been sold on them yet, nor have I been sold on touch-screen tablets. I'm content with my laptop and my smartphone. I might consider investing in a tablet once the technology drops in price significantly.

    I already work all day on a computer screen (LCD), and ebook (e-ink) allows my eyes to rest (no eye-strain at all).

    This may seem weird but i hate kindles, tablets and smart phones.
    There is no reason , i just hate them all. They get on my nerve. They represents consumerist and materialistic values. Most people buy them because they are hip and cool, no one stops to appreciate the knowledge and technology behind them ...
    plus why would I want to buy something highly expensive, poorly made that won't last and will soon be outdated by a newer version that could be barely considered an improvement of the current version?! And lets not forget the impact of the industry on the environment.


    on a brighter not, I have found a solution to avoid meaningless annoying chit chat during lunch breaks at work and university. Bring your laptop and leave it open in front of you while you're eating . Every one will assume you're working and no one will bother you. You can quietly enjoy your meal alone

    I use my smartphone to avoid/end all arguments.

    Whenever anyone debates me about anything which can be cited online, I literally interrupt them by holding up my smartphone and saying, "Let's ask the internet."

    I then press the talk-to-search button and vocalize my inquiry to Google through my phone.

    Google tells me the answer to my question by visually providing me with links to various websites I can then browse with the touch of a finger and read aloud from.

    "LET'S ASK THE INTERNET!"

    I wish I could be more epic about it when I do it. Like I was asking the Gods. It's pretty awesome enough as it is though. The fact that I can do that.

    This is totally the only reason I've ever considered getting a smartphone.

    I bet you have NT women fawning all over you whenever you do that.

    I got a smart phone because my computer was dying and I was tired of not being able to surf the internet without major issues. I've since gotten two slightly less crappy computers, but I still use my phone to keep in touch with people, both via phone and by email or whatever. And I don't care if new technology comes out - so long as I have the internet on my phone, I'm satisfied.

    Also, if it dies or malfunctions the phone company just gives me a replacement which is ideal as I'm not paying that much to have to do it again any time soon.

    Convo with the boss:

    Boss: Here's the thing: You are not as smart as you think you are, and I am not as dumb as you think I am.
    Me: Well, there are different types of intelligence.

    What I am thinking while I spit that sentence out:

    Seriously? How exactly do you KNOW how smart I think I am? I'm pretty self aware, so I'm EXACTLY as smart as I think I am. I may not be as smart as you think I think I am. (chew on that). As for how dumb you are or how dumb I think you are, how do you KNOW how dumb I think you are. While you sometimes say dumb things, or have dumb ideas, I can live with that. I don't really think about how dumb you are as a person, but after this conversation, I may have to consider it.
