Not to worry; we're doomed

So you know Steve Jobs? The guy who resuscitated Apple computers and brought the iPhone into being? He's a bit of an electronics industry legend and guru. This is what he said a little while back about handheld e-readers: "It doesnt matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people dont read anymore," he said.

The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.
