A very bullish piece from Newsweek and a fairly positive view from the New York Times on the impending development of electronic ink and its power to rescue the ailing ink-on-paper version of the paper.

The big question: Will people pay for something largely free, in exchange for a format and a more readable technology than the backlit screen?
