The article says (in part):
"Using BuddyBuzz, Fogg claims he can read 700 words a minute. At that
rate, you could read a novel in about an hour and a half, if your
phone battery doesn't give out."
I don't think that I >WANT< to read a novel in an hour and a half. I
quite enjoy taking several days, even a week, to read one, picking it
up and putting it down as I choose, thinking about what I read,
relating it to the rest of my life and to Life In General.
I think of ee cummings: ""For life's not a paragraph, and death I
think is no parentheses."
