Agonizing choices

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.

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
