Oh good god. Is there no end to the wastefulness that unfettered capitalism foists on to the world?

I'm sure the majority of these things will be read once, or less, then sit on the shelf untouched for decades like most regular books, until the batteries run out and start leaking crud. At which time they'll just become more (likely un-recycled) garbage.

If you're going to buy a single-text book, what benefits do these things have over a regular paper one? Going by the description in the article, I can't think of any.

And why does a tech article about e-readers not include a single image of one, link to one, or even just mention the specific name of one?
