As a long time devotee of absolutely anything and everything Apple, I have a very sad admission to make. It hurts and seriously pains me to write this post and make my sad confession, but …… I have bought a Kindle.
I can hear you screaming, ‘But why?’
Well, now one year or more on from the release of the iPad and the absolutely beautiful iBooks app and iBooks Store, Apple have really missed the mark and flopped like a limp deck of wet playing cards. As a non-US user, I am still unable to buy one solitary book. If that’s not bad enough, there is no app for my laptop, so obviously no way to make any purchase (of non existent books it must be said) from my MacBook.
Additionally, I have also discovered that reading (read here free classics as that is all that is available to me) in the gentle sunshine on my balcony is impossible due to screen glare. You can also add to this that I wear glasses which doubles the impossibility.
So, lights out for reading in a dark corner and everything is fine. Well, apart from the fact that I can’t buy Happy Potter so I’ll just have to be happy with Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.
Enough said. So I bought a Kindle.
Get well soon and come back to work Steve. There’s a monumental ‘cock up’ to fix!
