“Books have been held hostage ofﬂine for far too long. Taking them digital will unlock their real hidden value: the readers.” Clive Thompson - The Future of Reading in a Digital World in Wired Magazine 17.06 (2009)
A truly modern e-reader is one that is intimately connected to the Web andallows a user to make queries as a series of asides, while reading or after immersive reading has ended. Liza Daily - Threepress Consulting, Inc

Use cases vary wildly between people,and even within people. It all depends on the particular need, goal or subject. ... Youd have public and private, disconnected and connected. Just ﬂick a switch for your desired experience. Mac Slocum - OReillys Online Managing Editor
