Kindle V. iPad

Ken Auletta has an overview article in The New Yorker about the iPad, Kindle, and the current state of eBook publishing. The release of the iPad, at least temporarily, prevented Amazon from dictating the price of eBooks at $9.99, but will the new boss be the same as the old boss… hm?

Worth a read, although I never heard the iPad referred to as the “Jesus Pad,”  in any self-respecting publishing circle, as the author claims.
