I'm not very tech savvy, so I thought I would ask for some assistance, from those who are.
For a variety of reasons, it isn't good for me to have an Internet connection at home right now. But I got an idea: I could get an 'e-reader' (or some such device) that, while not being able to access the Internet - preferably incapable
of doing so - can, however, be plugged into one of those external hard drives which can hold a vast amount of information. I could put into it the entire ATI website (for example), pali learning aids, the entire pali canon...many possibilities. So, I would go to the local library (which is where I am typing this post from), download stuff onto the external HDrive, and build up a vast library of useful, wholesome information that I could then take home, to be accessed at will. It would become like a vast, searchable library, without the need for an entire roomful of actual, paper books.Ok, the three main questions:
is there an e-reader (or similar device) that would be able to 1.not
be able access the Internet at all, yet 2.
properly be able to display pali fonts (in the manner of the ATI site, for example; and without scrambling up or putting a box in place of certain letters, as I have seen done on my old phone sometimes, and 3.
be able to be plugged in to one of those external hard drives that can hold masses of information.
Thanks for reading. I actually don't care what the device is, or what it's called. I just want something which can become a kind of internet substitute, a private gold-mine of information that I can search and enjoy from home. (And something affordable
- forgot to mention that one...) Ok that's the entire wish-list now
