Re: Windows poised to leap
my eyes can't deal with small print anymore .  I sometimes see people trying to read an article on a iphone5 and with a cracked screen on the subway.  This is bad for your eyes in the long term.  That is way if I need to read an article i prefer to use a tablet, specially a 10 inch one, they are very comfortable to read articles on.

Re: Windows poised to leap
Ariella, yes, being able to enlarge the print at will depending on how tired your eyes are, for instance, it's great. The small print in books may wrongly make parents think that their children have sight problems, and we know the business behind this. Editorials should be more thoughtful; not everything should be about saving money. -Susan

Re: Windows poised to leap
@Susan yes, it saves money on paper. That's why a lot of paperbacks have rather small print. I think one fo the advantages people cite for e-readers is the ability to enlarge the print on the screen without having to order special large print editions.

How
"The fourth quarter of 2015 will be interesting to watch unfold. By then, Windows 10 devices will be widely available. They could have a significant impact on enterprise device purchasing." Eric, What makes you think that? I don't see there will be too many people in the enterprise choosing a Windows 10 device over an iOS one. -Susan

Re: Windows poised to leap
Speaking of that, there actually are studies of people reading on mobile phones, particularly in developing countries. See http://blogs.worldbank.org/edutech/reading-mobile-phones 

There is a follow up publication entiteld "Reading Without Books" still in the works.

Re: Windows poised to leap
@jagibbons who knows? Maybe our vision will adapt, and we'll grow accustomed to reading really small print on phone screens. It just doesn't fit with what I've seen of my kids who complain of small print in books.

Re: Windows poised to leap
The longer I've had my Galaxy Note 4 "phablet," the more comfortable I am with a smaller screen for more and more tasks. Never thought that would happen, but it opens up the possibility of a larger-screen phone as a primary computing device.

Re: Windows poised to leap
@jagibbons actually I've been thinking that what we really need is a foldable device that can open to a screen with a nice viewing area but still allow one to easily carry the thing around. If you connect to a standard monitor, that is useful, but it does sort of cut down on the mobility part -- at least when using that screen.
