Who says NuvoMedia's Rocket eBook is just for books? Some folks in Hollywood think the portable device can make bulky paper scripts as much of a relic as silent films. The idea to turn the eBook into E-Scripts came from James Korris, the new executive director of USC's Entertainment Technology Center. Korris, a technology junkie, said he started fiddling with his eBook and his script-writing software to see if they were compatible.

It's light, portable and has the capacity to carry about 10 novels. The Rocket eBook from Palo Alto-based NuvoMedia Inc. is the most evolved attempt yet at the digital book, and it mimics many of the assets of real books while adding digital benefits.

Then just transfer the digitized books to the eBook.

Straight from the pages of science fiction, electronic books will land in the public's eye this fall with promises of searchable text and the ability to hold the equivalent of 10, if not hundreds, of volumes in a portable device weighing only a few pounds. Books that have been taken out of print could soon be available electronically. Readers frustrated by the minuscule type on the pages will be able to increase the size to their comfort level.

The Maine author released his 16,000-word story "Riding the Bullet" exclusively over the Internet for $2.50. The tale, which would be 66 pages in traditional book form, is described by King as "a ghost story in the grand manner," recounting the experience of a young man who hitches a ride with a driver from "the other side."

There are certain product categories that on the surface seem like a dumb idea. But as a product reviewer, I try to keep an open mind until I have a chance to test the item. For example, I was skeptical about WebTV, a device that lets you surf the Net from a television set. But after I installed it in my living room, I discovered that it actually provides a reasonably good experience. The same was true about hand-held electronic devices that store and display book text.
