I wrote this old post about what I’d love to see in an e-reader a while ago. And that dream still stands firm. There has been some movement in the colour e-ink market with the Flepia in Japan and rumours about a colour Kindle coming in 2010.

I've always been interested in all kinds of art because I felt the need to express myself in many different ways. I paint, draw, create 3D models, motion graphics & designs of all sorts, play guitar, love photography and whatever else is in between... I was born in Hungary and lived in Hungary, Germany, Australia and the UK for a number of years. I speak German, English and a little Hungarian (I'm working on improving that one again!).
