The "Cool-er eReader"

Post by marilyn peake » December 10th, 2009, 1:39 am

I saw something called the “Cool-er eReader” on QVC this week ... and thought, What the...? Haven’t even heard of that! Turns out there’s an interesting story behind it. A writer created the “Cool-er eReader” for his own startup self-publishing business, and now it’s in competition with the Kindle and Nook: http://www.lostjobstartbusiness.com/blo ... ny-cool-er. Lots more information here: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/05/28/techn ... .html?_r=1. Google - who’s been competing with Amazon - has apparently made one million public domain books available to the company making the Cool-er eReader to post on their eBookstore site: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/09/0 ... er-e-books. Interesting.
