Get The Latest Stephen King Book At Your Local Phone Booth

from the Stephen-King-and-his-weird-book-promotions dept

Stephen King seems to have a thing for doing odd book promotions. He, of course, made lots of news for his various attempts at publishing ebooks (with varying degrees of success or failure depending on who you talk to). Now, the latest, is this plan to allow people with PDAs to beam a section from his latest book to their Palm devices as they walk by certain telephone booths in Manhattan. There will be posters near the telephone booths telling you can beam part of the book to your PDA and explaining how it works. I wonder how long it will be until someone hacks the system so that it downloads porn instead…
