Kindle Goes Green

According to a university webpage, Princeton "is using the Kindle DX electronic reader to pilot the use of an e-reader in a small number of classes during the Fall term of 2009." Interestingly, the main motivation behind the pilot program is environmental:

Statistics show that students are not reading digital articles and book selections on their computer screens, but rather downloading the same files again and again, and printing them multiple times in the course of a semester. ... With an e-reader, one can easily carry a year's worth or more of course readings in a lightweight device, can search for content, and can annotate, bookmark, or highlight readings.
