Watch Steve Bezos Unleash the Awesome New Kindles

There's a reason we crowned Jeff Bezos the next Steve Jobs: he's cool, composed, stylish, and bald. And now you can see his ascension in motion, as he pitched the world on the new Kindle family. Nice jacket, Jeff.


Keynotes are a lot like tennis matches. Even if the action looks impressive onscreen, nothing compares to seeing the humans in motion. Bezos does come across a little off here—a little dry, a little awkward, a little stilted. But I promise you, as someone who was sitting right in front of him yesterday, his charisma was undeniable, and perhaps impossible to capture via Flash video.

Just finished watching this. The audience weren't nearly as lively as those found at Apple Keynotes. I know not everything point needs whooping and hollering but when he announced the $199 Fire (which is bloody impressive imo) the room remained flat. Was cheering banned?
