Seems to be the way things work with the Mozilla crew. Look at the "progress" of the Thunderbird project. For over a decade people have been complaining about its inability to accurately render html, yet that problem still exists in the software today. No one wants to work on the un-sexy nuts and bolts stuff; everybody wants to be the guy who wrote the flashy new UI. Kinda difficult to do anything about it when you can't fire someone and hire a decent replacement.

It's the State of Comcast. They have no such niceties as "innocent until proven guilty". They can do whatever they want, because they own everybody who could possibly be effective in trying to do something about them. So let's let them swallow Time-Warner, too! All hail Comcast!

I'm with medv. I much the way people wake up just before their alarm clock goes off, I think we subconsciously keep track of where we are in the book, and the pages give us a concrete measuring stick to judge by. Then we can relate passages of the story to physical locations in the paper book, giving us more of a timeline reference. At least, that makes sense to my experience with ereaders v books.
