That is cool. Now we just need Barnes to steal this technology so we can have a sweet library of books to choose from....
Did I say steal? I meant to innovate and come up with something similar... heh

Heh, yea it is pretty cool.
My GF wants a nook for V-day so i'm gonna have to go searching the couch cusions for some coinage lol
Well whatever you do, don't order from Amazon.com.
They don't want people to know that the Nook is the same price as their Kindle.
lol yea I saw that!
I went to see if anyone else carried the nook, looking for a deal and over on amazon they had it for like $1,000 at the time I checked lol
I was at the Barnes & Noble near the Moorestown Mall (New Jersey) and they had not only a demo unit but a few to sell. So, they are out there, you just have to hustle to find them. And not at an Amazon premium either. (Full disclosure: I buy a lot of stuff from them when they're the loewst cost alternative. Example: I'm mulling over the iPod Touch; they have it for $30 less than retail. But they're jerks when it comes to anything having to do with the Kindle.)

I have Amazon Prime so I try to shop there as much as I can.
Their subscription service is actually pretty good and saves me alot of time and money, even though I only order toilet paper and cereal from it, lol.
As a pianist, I am looking at this device's potential for storing sheet music. There are digital sheet music displays on the market now, but they are expensive. I like the slim design and the touch screen of the Skiff. It could make turning pages a lot easier. Has anyone heard how much it costs?
I hadn't thought about sheet music as a potential use Tao. I can really visualize a pianist no longer having to fiddle with turning the page before it's too late. Instead, a simple side swipe of the finger and the page instantly transitions.
I love technology and engineering.
