    Hi Mike and Mike I love the podcasts and I'm so very happy you're here to offer advice. I remember that you guys commented on the fact that the benchmark for e-readers is when they got down to $99 dollars. That that price was some kind of threshold to open the flood gates. Well i just found out that KOBO now sells their wireless e-reader for $99 dollars. What are your thoughts if any on that news. Or if you mentioned it already and I missed those comments I apologize for the repetition. Good Luck with all future projects! :o)
