    Goodbye to bookshelves?

    Is the nosy, sometimes enlightening pleasure of browsing someone's bookshelf about to become a thing of the past? Or the gentle thrill of noticing that the cute boy across from you on the train is reading a dog-eared copy of your favoutire book? Or just realising that every second woman on the beach is stuck into the latest Marian Keys? Maybe.

      Al, GPS systems moved from dedicated devices and in to phones. Phones which update the maps automatically (and is a money maker for someone). My point is that you are comparing the wrong things. Having said that, Kindle book store on the iPod/iPhone/iPad is another merging of two separate devices... and the iPad isn't out yet.

      I don't know... I work somewhere that sells those readers and to be honest I think it's all a fad. They are really popular at the minute but I can't see it lasting. GPS systems are crazy popular for a couple years but that's nearly stopped completely now and GPS was recently voted the most useless invention of all time. At the end of the day, people are comparing readers to MP3 players. But that just doesn't add up. You need something to play music on, hense MP3s popularity. But you don't need something to read a book. They're just very impersonal and certainly not nice to use.
