The NewsPod? 

The New York Times' David Carr sees the future of newspapers in delivery devices:

Consider if the line between the Web and print matter were erased by a device for data consumption, not data entry - all screen, no baggage - that was uplinked and updated constantly: a digital player for the eyes, with an iTunes-like array of content available at a ubiquitous volume and a low, digestible price.

Can't say I disagree. As Michael Eisner recently said, distribution is king, and the iPod is simply an elegant way to control distribution, which is driving the record companies crazy. A successful NewsPod is where e-paper display mechanisms will come into play.
