Leaving my apartment, I look down at my feet when I walk, and skirt down the steps that lead down to the subway.

Once I’m on the platform, I see an ad for the newest Slate™E-Reader, it’s on the wall across where I stand, while I wait for the train, I read it:

“Introducing the Newest Slate™E-Reader: Paperwhite, 7-inch, 1680 × 1264 pixels, 300 PPI density, 16-level greyscale, warm LED frontlit.”

People really care about the greyscale level of their Slate™E-Reader, it seems that the different gradients of grey are the forefront of technological advancement because the Slate™E-Reader is always attempting to be as close as it can to a real, physical book. The train comes.
