Feels like 2001

Just before the ipod came out, there were a million (well, not quite) nameless mp3 players all trying to create a digital music player market. I remember almost buying a RCA Lyra or something back then. Then came Apple’s entry and after a couple of years, became an overnight success. 2010 isn’t 2001 – for a start, Apple’s no longer ‘beleaguered‘ but some things smell the same… Check this SF Chronicle link for a good summary of the non-Kindle, non-iPad ebook devices. As Andrew Ross suggests:

It seems just yesterday that “e-readers” and “tablets” came on the scene, but already there’s talk of a great shakeout.
