If there is one thing, one thing that absolutely drives me insane, it’s the “know/no” problem. Granted, not everybody is a Pluskommander in the Grammar Nazi army like me, but how people can say things like “I no” drives me into a rabid fury. And if the Kno e-reader catches on, we can probably expect this to get worse. Granted, this is an unreasonable concern, as it runs on Linux and therefore will never be popular except with that guy who will never just shut up about the latest distro, but it’s the principle of the thing.
Aside from the retarded name obviously dictated by marketroids, and the weird press picture up above, the
Know Kno looks pretty good. Yep, it’s got two screens, they’re both touch-screens, and they’re both a pleasing fourteen inches in size. It’s pretty cool under the screen, too, with a Tegra 2 and 16 gigs of memory.
Unfortunately, it’ll cost you: the price for the
Dr. Kno right now is “under $1000″, and only Apple can get away with charging high prices like that for gadgets. Then again, considering how AT&T just kneecapped the iPad, maybe the NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Kno isn’t such a bad deal.
