"Meh E-book readers, cause ppl don't read anymore" says Jobs

Steve Jobs from Apple said this about the Kindle ebook reader:

“It doesn’t matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don’t read anymore,” he said. “Forty percent of the people in the U.S. read one book or less last year. The whole conception is flawed at the top because people don’t read anymore.”

This kinda sucks, I'd really love a good ebook reader, a shame that Apple won't be doing much about it. The new Iwhatevers may be the closest current thing to 'tricorders', but it's not like TEXT is such a hard challenge to support decently in your freaking device. What an argument too, hey lets give up on reading... :p totally ignoring the blogosphere and internet in general. With a keyboard option you have a great easy mobile computer, the future!

And what, doesn't Steve Jobs read beside his bank account?
