    Name:
    Location: Aberystwyth, Wales, United Kingdom

    I am the owner and managing director of Information Automation Limited (IAL), a company that specialises in research, consultancy and training for the information profession. We are particularly interested in all forms of electronic information resources (e-journals, e-books, etc) and I teach a course in electronic publishing at the Department of Information Studies in Aberystwyth. Drilling down still further(!), my interests centre on the quality and evaluation of electronic information, and in the thinking that underpins activities in library and information science.

    And another...

    As Tech From an E-booker's Viewpoint says, "When it rains it pours." I suppose that it suggests that someone has faith in the e-book marketplace, despite the continuous negative thoughts from the publishers and the writers. Another e-book reader has been announced.
    By the end of the year there will be another E-ink device on the block. It is Jinke’s Hanlin V9 .This reader will have a flexible plastic screen measuring 10 inches. Formats supported include PDF, DOC, HTML, TXT, and CHM.
    This is the Chinese offering, coming from Tianjin Jinke Electronics. No touch screen; no WiFi; the V9 is the fourth in the family (V3, V8, V2b) and the one with the largest screen -
    We have successfully designed more than 20 model products for customers in the field of e-book reader product.
    Release date for this model is 31 December 2007, and it looks as if a further model with a touch-screen will be available sometime after that date.
