Now that it’s summer, and we want to take our e-readers to the beach, this is perhaps a good time to review what are (and are not) good ideas for how to treat our devices.
CNET put the Kindle Paperwhite through a beach torture test to see how it would do.
Here’s the video. Fair warning: If you’re watching this at work, you may experience feelings of vacation envy. I’m not accepting any responsibility for loss of productivity due to viewing this.
Now, I know none of you would do this to your e-reader, Paperwhite or not, but if you do want to turn your device into a beach bum, this product gets good reviews on Amazon.
No, I haven’t tested it myself. I’m more a woodsy/mountain camping person than a sun bather. But if anyone wants to share good beach protective e-reader apparel, feel free.
