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.
