A day like this, in 2004...

In a day like this, in 2004, I was post­ing about how a Sony Clie would be a much nicer ebook read­er than my palm m100.

Re­al­ly. This:

A sony Clie SJ-30

Was, in­deed much bet­ter than this:

A Palm m100

And I was hap­py that I could get the Clie for on­ly 100 dol­lars af­ter trad­ing my m100. And it had a bat­tery life of a whole 2 days. Nowa­days, for the same 100 dol­lars, I got a Kin­dle touch, with a bat­tery life of, like, for­ev­er.

OTO­H, at night I read on an an­droid phone, which is about the same size and shape as the Clie and has even short­er bat­tery life (much bet­ter screen of course).

So, the more things change, the more they stay the same, I guess.
