    When I open packages I usually cut the tape with an X-Acto knife and lift it out without making a mess or damaging anything.

    fascinating. wouldn't make a very good comic though

    Have you heard of the song "I did it all for the Nookie?"

    The what?
    Nookie is old-timey slang for vagina.

    "Nook" is a word for vagina.

    Kids these days.

    OHHh I get it.

    I never thought of it that way. I just thought of a Nook like... a small space in a room.

    Yes, correct, a "small cozy space" - exactly.

    I will admit, "waiting folds" is a phrase I never expected to hear from a Penny Arcade comic

    also, unboxing is what you do to a hot girl's negaclown

    I use keys or a pen or sometimes just brute strength.

    If I don't have a sharp implement in the room I can tear the tape off a box and deconstruct it without ripping the cardboard. I use my knuckles. I'm also able to crack walnut in by bare hands.

    I blame a solid 20 years of video-gaming for my overly-developed digits.

    I like the idea of carrying a variety of books around in a compact device. Sure, I'd rather look at print than at a screen but I also like the organizational advantages of going digital.

    Sometimes I don't even notice that there's protective plastic on a new thing I've bought. Then a few weeks later it starts to peel off and I get worried that I've broken it.

    I don't think I'll buy an eReader till they get them under $200.

    $400 is way too much to spend on that when I get most of my reading material from the library anyway.

    That's a silly analogy. A word processor on a laptop would be much better than on a touch screen phone. Whereas the one book I've read on the kindle app was completely fine. All I was wondering was what would make a dedicated device better for this sort of thing.

    I guess the fact that's it's bigger would be a plus, Kuribo. Also from what I've heard the e-ink display (or whatever it's called) is better for long reading sessions than the backlit iphone display, in terms of eye strain.

    I haven't had any personal experience with either, though

    I have a Lego A-Wing starfighter, and the control panel in the cockpit is just one of those sloped pieces with something printed on it, like they use, you know? The thing printed on it is a little targeting computer with a wireframe Star Destroyer bridge with a crosshair on there. I swear to god, it's like "Crash here."

    It seems like a pretty apt analogy to me. A laptop has a much bigger screen and type interface.

    An e-reader has a much larger viewing area, much much better battery life and it looks like paper as opposed to staring at a regular screen.

    I've read a bunch of books on the iPhone, and it doesn't strain your eyes at all. I suppose battery life could be an issue, but not one that's going to have me buying a whole new device to carry about. I charge my iPhone every night anyway, sometimes at work too.
