You knew it had to happen. With the iPad shaking up the e-reader market by bringing to users full color screens, the ability to watch movies, surf the Internet, and run all the apps that the iPhone runs, the e-ink product makers have to be feeling the heat.

over the purchase cost of iBooks via the iBookstore continues to be a
hot topic of debate amongst Apple enthusists and biblophiles alike.
