    If you didn't feel you got the whole Story yesterday, here's a pleasing helping of seconds, this time in the form of a full-on review. The PC Pro team rates iriver's Kindle emulator as a "serious contender," and places its readability on par with Sony's touch-less Readers.

But the major gripe related to the asking price of £230 including taxes (around $380), which the Story was not considered capable of justifying.
