Kindle v Book…I’ve seen the future and it's kind of scary
Not liking it so much, that new lightweight high-tech pal of mine. Kindle.
'Kind' plus 'le'? Kindly? Is that what they were going for?
Let's Google it.
"Amazon Kindle is a software and hardware platform for reading electronic books (e-books), developed by Amazon.com subsidiary Lab126, first launched in the United States on November 19, 2007. Two hardware devices, known as "Kindle" and "Kindle 2," support this platform, as does an iPhone application called "Kindle for iPhone."
The Kindle hardware devices use an electronic paper display and download content over Amazon Whispernet using the Sprint EVDO network. Kindle hardware devices can be used without a computer, and Whispernet is accessible without any fee. These devices also provide free internet access to Wikipedia."
Okay, gut reaction.
