When a better gadget comes along and you are stuck with the old and less flashy version, do you feel ashamed? Richard Stephenson over at Folio recently wrote about how magazine publishers are getting their content onto the iPad, and shared an interesting anecdote about how the shiny, sexy iPad has made some Kindle owners feel ashamed of their “relic.”
I can see that. Feeling frustrated at least. You want the sexy model, but there you are stuck with this old has-been. The iPad is a sleek, full-color touchscreen device where e-reading as just one of its abilities. But to really be ashamed of your Kindle? It’s just a device.
