digital paper and the Iliad

O’reilly has this nice little article on how to make your PC work like a Mac. I’m going to try these out on my PC here at work. The end results are not as nice of course as the real thing. Maybe someday I’ll be able to install OS X on my PCs.

digital paper and the IliadI don’t like posting something that I found on Gizmodo, ampoule I try to avoid that sort of thing. There always seems to be overlap though. In this case though I saw it there first and I must say that I’m very excited. iRex Technologies is showing off the prototype for the Iliad. This is one of the first commercial devices designed around digital paper with reading in mind. Combined with the fact that it’s fairly open and standards based too. Support for PDF, more about XHTML, plain text, MP3, and the like.

If they stick to their product description I will be the first person in line to buy one.
