Unless they had a high suspicion that e-readers cause poor retention then why even study it unless they were skewed from the start? This is like pitting peanut butter cookies versus chocolate chip cookies as cancer cures. You'll likely find that one works better than the other just by chance, but the fact is that neither of them has any cancer curing effect whatsoever. It's a suspicious, stupid study.

What's obvious is that we can continue to get smaller and more powerful than what we have already. Do you doubt that in a year's time, let alone five, computers will be smaller, more powerful, and consume less energy? And then there are mobile devices, which have a LONG way to go, especially in regards to batteries. Thinking that we've already reached the limits of speed and size is laughable. It really is up there with "shut down the patent office because everything has been invented" attitude.

Virtually every written form I've had to fill in has sucked just as badly. None of them provide enough space for the information asked. Even with things like phone numbers they won't give you enough room. They also force you to incorrectly summarize things, such as education. Do you have a masters, bachelor's degree, or high school diploma? Check one. It's ridiculous, but so far I've only ever had to fill them out AFTER I've gone for an interview and they only want them for their HR files.
