E-Book:


The concept behind an eBook is that it should provide all the functionality of an ordinary book but in a manner that is (overall) less expensive and more environmentally friendly. The actual term eBook is somewhat confusingly used to refer to a variety of things: custom software to play eBook titles, dedicated hardware to play eBook titles, and the eBook titles themselves. Individual eBook titles can be free or commercial (but will always be less expensive than their printed counterparts) and have to be loaded into a player to be read. Players vary wildly in capability level. Basic ones allow simple reading and bookmarking; better ones include various features like hypertext, illustrations, audio, and even limited video. Other optional features allow the user to mark-up sections of text, leave notes, circle or diagram things, highlight passages, program or customize settings, and even use interactive fiction. There are many types of eBook; a couple popular ones include the Newton book and Palm DOC.
