Wandering the halls of CeBIT in Hannover this year, belly stuffed mit Currywurst und Schnitzel (picked up the lingo, as you can see) Sneak happened to spy Asus' new DR-900 e-book reader.
Battling off the hordes of 'other people' looking at the device Sneak finally got its grubby mitts on the machine and was keen to have a play around. It was quite nice and had a few inbuilt demos including several classic texts to show off the book reading functionality.
These included The Hound of the Baskervilles, Pride and Prejudice and, er, well, the Kama Sutra. Yep, there at the bottom was the Kama Sutra. The mind boggles. An interactive touch-screen device showing the Kama Sutra.
It's an interesting tactic, selling a device for its ability to show ancient porn (we jest, of course, it's a cracking read too). Going after the sex dollar could work though, especially after the prudes at Apple banned sex from its app store.
And hey, it's World Book Day today too, so what better day to dust off your copy, or download it to your device, and take in some of the finest Indian literature on offer. There might even be a position called the CeBIT too.
