Got a 9" eReader for Christmas and found it is great to take with me on service calls around campus or the hospital. ( still a little afraid to carry the shops laptop around just to read a service bulletin )
We are a very old school and have a mixed bag of systems.
e.g., we have Danfoss,Trane, and DuraPulse VFDs, and keeping them straight can be a hassle.
I've loaded the reader with pdf files on a SD card, so I can call up the set up programs.
The reader is small, but the 9" screen helps these old eyes. ( can't seem to read them on my smartphone )
And I can read a book on my lunch hour!
Anyone else using something like this?

I was curious if anyone used those e-readers for job related stuff but was afraid to ask. I have an i-touch and a blackberry but when I was working I never carried them around on jobsites for fear of getting them broken or soaked. Sounds like they would be very helpfull. I only used them in my truck and did'nt let the front office know I had them since the company supplied phones could take pictures, e-mail and aqll that good stuff but we could not use any of those features to make be more productive, heaven forbid. If I researched wiring diagrams and other stuff I could'nt read them on my blackberry and waited to print stuff out at home.

It is just an eReader, a way to store information, just like a manual. Boss thought it was a good idea.
I use a pdf writer and make my own files of key specs of the equipment around campus. We have 4 steam boilers, 11 Hot water boilers, 3 chillers, and countless RTU's, and split units; many different makes. A lot to keep track of.
I personally don't worry too much about it getting nuked, life's too short to worry about such things.
Any tool I can use to get the job done is fine by me.
