Jeff Bezos: Kindle Back in Stock Soon, Honest! (P.S. I Love the Kindle Cake)S

Whether the Kindle's perpetual sold out status is the result of honest-to-God feverish demand for the little slab of e-book voodoo or a willfully sub-demand supply, that's about to change. Jeff Bezos has a little love note on the front page of Amazon saying he's sowwy they can't keep up with our blistering desire to get our Whispernet on, and that Kindles will be shipping the same day you order them—in a just a few weeks. So, you have to wait a few weeks in order to um, not wait a few weeks. Oh and that Kindle cake? "Delectable." [Amazon]
