This still fails to hold any interest to me whatsoever. I might see the value of an e-reader if it were around 150 bucks...but almost 500? I can think of an AWFUL lot of things I'd rather drop that kind of cash on...a PC, a laptop, really decent digicam or blu-ray player....root canal, liposuction etc.
I can honestly say I've seen 1 kindle out and about in the real world. I just don't see it catching on as 'big time' as Amazon might like to think, even among geeks like myself. I'm always up for a new toy, but meh...create a kindle app for i-phone and I'd be all over it, but another piece of hardware?
I'll pass. Next article please.
