A few mildly amusing news bits about whether or not
to actually GET one of those Kindles.
1. "Frightful Kindle" - by Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo site.
2. "Hunch" is a new social media technology that's hot on the heels of the puzzling but popular "Twitter." "It's designed to help us all cope with the problem of choice."
So, the author, Wade Roush, uses Hunch for advice on whether to buy a Kindle.
3. PBS writer Mark Glaser also ponders the "Pros and Cons of the Kindle 2 and says "A friend who had been traveling to beaches recently said they couldn't believe how many Kindles they saw people reading."
So, apparently it's being seen more in the wild these days. But the upshot is that his son wants more pictures and color. Below are ways to Share this post if you'd like others to see it.
-- The Send to Kindle button works well only on Firefox currently.
(Older posts have older Kindle model info. For latest models, see CURRENT KINDLES page. )
