There is a new e-book around, the Playaway. The book is also the player, which looks like a book. Get it? If you buy this audio-book all you have to do is plug in some earphones. There a lots of different genres and titles available. The books are a bit expensive though. I wonder if people are willing to pay much, much more for an e-book, just because it is easy. How much work is it to download something to a computer or MP3 player? To solve this problem, the company created a program in which you send back a book and get a discount on the next: RePlay.
You can find more information about the books here. Please, let me know what you think of it in the comments.
