Kindle’s latest e-reader is out and it’s a damn fine product—the best e-reader ever made even. It’s also the most expensive e-reader currently available. So if the idea of spending $290 on a portable library makes you shudder than it’s time to consider the other guys.
Technology is all about progress. Sometimes it’s incremental or subtle, but other times it can be colossal and even transformative. In 2015 we saw a metal and silicone cornucopia of gadgets and gizmos. There were amazing deals, sad departures, brand new product categories, and even world-changing ideas. These are the…
The Kindle Paperwhite just updated to a higher resolution screen for the same $120 price. I probably don’t need to tell you it’s better than the last Paperwhite. It definitely is.

It's been a few years since e-ink Kindles took a big step forward. 2012's Kindle Paperwhite was the last big splash. But now Amazon's got a new, beautiful, premium e-reader for you to read words off of. This is the Kindle Voyage.

We know first-hand that the new Kindle Paperwhite is a stunning little device, but how did it get so good? The Amazon employee's who developed the reader have gotten together to explain. Interestingly enough, they cite the ultimate goal as being able to make a device that sort of "disappears" as you use it. That's…
The new Kindle Paperwhite has a frontlit screen. We knew it probably would. But the term "frontlit" is actually a little misleading, and the simplicity of what it does belies the considerable engineering required to pull it off.
The Kindle Paperwhite's screen is so awesome you wouldn't believe it's e-ink. Hell, I just saw it and I still don't believe it. It combines the paper-like text of e-ink screens with the usability of LCD screens but none of the eye strain. No other e-reader even comes close to this right now.
