In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new gadget out on the market. This sounds the best news for those who read in the bath and don’t want to get electrocuted (terms and conditions apply, I’m sure there’s a website for details).

Why mention this? Well, to be honest I read ebooks on my iPad and use the Kindle software so it is of no interest to me at all. What I find interesting instead is that, as ever with new product adverts covered a newer version of an existing product, implicit in the advert is the simple fact that the older models leak like a sieve and are destroyed by being dunked in a bucket of water.

Of course, I am not expecting people to test this out on their current devices but it does make me wonder how many read in the bath. Just saying…
