Re: Dinosaurs of a digital age

I've saved nearly €700 in paper and toner "printing" to ebook. Read, annotate and copy back notes to laptop from an Amazon Kindle or Rakuten Kobo. Sony has a 13" + size one for PDFs called Electronic paper.

The eink is a niche. Inherently useless for colour (possible but about x6 dimmer) or video (massive ghosting and lag), but viable for paperback book sized text & B&W images. Reformatted web sites via Wordprocessor & Calibre are OK.

We just use the Laser printer for colour and scanning. Ink jet is too expensive and unreliable, we gave them up once everyone we knew had laptops and smartphones (+ Viber) to see the family snaps.
