    Kindle's not so bad it seems.

    Cool. I wonder how the fiber of different paper qualities shows up at this magnification?

    I saw one blurb pointing out that increasing the DPI much further on an iPad-sized screen would require so much of a beefier GPU to drive that resolution that you'd lose a lot of battery life.

    The comments on that page are pretty entertaining. The Fanboy War starts with the first reply.

      Why would rendering a truetype font to a high resolution display require a beefier GPU to the point of 'endangering' battery life?

    I remain pleasantly surprised at how good the Dürer print/screensavers look on the Kindle.

    I want to see what those Iridigm^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hwhatever-Qualcomm-renamed-it displays look like under magnification.

    And oil-drop epaper vs. black-and-white epaper, if that's still how they're planning to implement color.

    I always expected the epaper "spheres" to be more.. "spherical." Is that why they're having trouble making it whiter than a TI-82's LCD?
