I don't think I buy that. I've only owned a Kindle for six months or so, but I use it a lot. And I never owned an iPod or any kind of MP3 player. Eventually, maybe, they will make a screen that can show movies and still be as easy on the eyes as e-ink, but I don't think Apple is anywhere near there yet. I don't think they're even trying.
Everyone seems to love the phrase “Kindle killer.” Maybe it's just the alliteration. Or maybe Coursey's too young to appreciate how much people of a certain age need a really readable screen.
