Kindle me up

e-books a go go with Amazon.

Sounds crap.  I’ve not done much looking into this – indeed I may never look any further.  But.  On the face of it.  An electronic device that let’s you download e-books to it from Amazon.  It’s got wi-fi… Yeaaa.

  1. I am obviously a predictor of the future. Back in 2000/2001 I developed a concept for an Amazon e-book reader product. It had e-Ink technology, as this probably has, and it had a really cool social networking set of functions reminiscent of Friendster and facebook. It also had micropayment, pay as you read options to allow budding writers to get respect for what they were writing without the need of full blown publishing (reminiscent of blogs in a way).

    I always felt my idea was a little flawed, but it was just 6/7 years too early,
