A novel for your iPod (and it's a zombie novel, no less)

As reported by MAKE magazine, an author named David Wellington has created what may be the world's first novel formatted for iPod screens, using an online tool for converting .txt documents into downloadable messages in iPod's Notes feature. And if this wasn't enough, it's a zombie novel as well! (Here's a direct link to the novel online, in case you don't want to read it through your iPod.) I certainly applaud the cool technology that allows a book to be published this way...but man, could you even imagine trying to read an entire novel as a series of 100 little notes on your tiny little iPod screen? Jeez, and I thought my Palm drove me crazy.
