English was never any fun for me. I didn’t mind the writing, but I despised the reading. Reading was my kryptonite, Delilah, and the thorn in my paw. How did I ever survive you ask? I skipped pages. When reading “East of Eden” or “The Lord of the Flies” I would read one full page, then skip one full page. I ended up reading ½ as much, but I don’t think I really missed ½ of the book. I never got A’s in English class either.
Motorola has one-upped my cut-the-bs reading technique with their ‘emails abridged’ idea. This technology cuts out small sentences and frivolous phrases thus giving you only the most vital of information while reading emails on your handset. It can be programmed to keep or delete certain preference list words and phrases as well. I’m sure there’s some holes you may see in this feature, but then again, I did pass English class.
