Can the iPad really change how we read?

http://craigmod.com/journal/ipad_and_books/

iPad pre-orders have begun.  Craig Mod addresses the potential of the iPad in the above link.  I still don’t like staring at bright LCD screens for very long, but he touches on the biggest sin of publishers in the new digital environment: sticking with the book form factor.  Digital reading should be different and more scroll-like.  Pages have no meaning on a static screen.  Yet, everybody still uses pages.  I am particularly confused when I read articles from online sources that have page numbers.
