I’ve been following the progress of the Amazon Kindle. The sales alone suggest that this may be the e-reader that finally makes digital reading a serious contender to the book. Not satisfied with pure market data, I’ve been keeping up with friends who have purchased the device to see what’s happening with their habits and usage.
Interesting thing is that they are all still using it. Not just using it, but loving it. It appears the Kindle is not one of those nifty devices that ends up in your drawer (How many Palm Pilots experienced that fate?). I can only imagine how great it would be to embark on a series of flights with only one thin device covering all my reading needs.
Now, the new, improved Kindle is out with no price increase. Check it out here. I’m saving my pennies, fondly gazing upon it like Mike Meyers in Wayne’s World yearning for his dream guitar. It will be mine. Oh yes, it will … be … mine.
And Wlady, Jim, J. Peter, etc.? Make sure we Kindle buyers can get our AmSpec fix through Amazon’s service.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
