    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.

    e-Book reader (iLiad) news

    iRex Technologies has news of advances (both financial and publishing) for its powerful e-book reader, the iLiad. iRex has secured funding - to the tune of € 6M, which will be used to"acceleration of the Company's business, R&D and the development of the next generation product." We can presumably look forward to Visplex screens, improved software and power management, and a greater range of available titles.

    At the same time, iRex has signed a contract with Les Echos (a major French business newspaper) which means that Les Echos will be the first newspaper published using e-Ink. Not just e-books but e-newspapers!
