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.
