There are other reasons for this. In addition to the fact most supermarket tomatoes are not vine ripened, most of them are genetically modified to improve shelf life and reduce resistance to disease. A vine ripened heirloom or beefsteak tomato tastes much better than an off-the-shelf tomato no matter what you spray on it.

For casual reading where I can read in only one direction(from the front to the back, no skipping around) a kindle or similar device is very enticing. However, what about when I read a textbook or a technical book? More often than not I am trying to connect several similar concepts and have a finger or two marking my place as I rapidly switch between sections. How can I do that on a electronic device?

Seriously, have you used Dreamweaver? dreamweaver is far from one of those point-and-click WYSIWYG website creators of the 90s. I would wager that you would not be able to tell the difference from something created in dreamweaver and something created in, say, emacs.(provided, of course, that the creator is proficient in html+css)
