College students resisting Kindle DX, says AP—but someone thinks it makes a cool teleprompter

How’s the Kindle faring among students at five test campuses? Not so well, if you go by an AP survey. Among the problems: difficulty taking notes, lack of page numbers, less-than-ideal PDF display, screen not suitable for dim light.
At this point, as I see it, the Kindle is better suited for enjoying novels—straight-through, linear reads—as opposed to textbook use. I’m rooting for better technology to change that.
