"the myopic glow of a clunky computer replaces the friendly pages of a book. And you can’t tote that laptop to the beach. Yet Nicholas Negroponte, director of the MIT Media Lab, predicts that we’ll soon buy books and newspapers straight over the Intenet. Uh, sure."

Quote from that article, kindlefire anyone?

Of course I'd still prefer the warm pages of a book, since reading text on a screen hurts my eyes, and books don't need any batteries, or stop working if they fall out of my hands.

Kindle doesnt hurt your eyes. It's not like a screen. It's like a small laptop that changes the arrangement of something on the page, making the words. And with a good cover, you dont have to worry about it breaking. It can last for weeks on the batteries since it's only needed for backlighting in bright light, and for changing the crystals. And then you can have a huge portable library.
I still do like that feeling when you flip the cover of a paper back open, and softening the book as you read along, and simply having the book in your hands

The Kindle Fire that flaminggodzilla mentioned has a regular IPS screen, like most other tablets, so that can hurt your eyes.

The majority do, LCD screens in Kindles are only a recent offering. I figure they couldn't resist offering games and apps like other tablets do.
