Amazon's New Kindle2! I want one! Save Paper! :-)
I was watching the Jon Stewart's Daily Show and he had the guy from Amazon on talking about their new portable reading device. I listened because Jon Stewart makes the news funny and then I became interested. Hmmm...curious...I looked it up on Amazon and watched their video demonstration on the Kindle2 and now I am very impressed...I really want one! It is way more than books on a device....you really have to watch the video demo on this amazing device. Soooo cool! Where in the world was this thing when I was in school and college? This would have totally helped me out, seriously. It allows you to even bookmark pages, highlight passages, etc... You can read blogs, magazines, and newspapers. It has an anti-glare feature if you are outside and the sun is shining. It also has a feature where it prevents eye-strain that normally computers and phones would give you if you read from them. You can even have the book read to you while you are driving or something like that if you wish (think of it like LeapPad(c) for adults). Also, if you have poor eyesight (like for my Mom this would be awesome) you can enlarge the font! Incredible device! I think the price is fair for such: $349.00 You need to visit the site and watch the video...I left out a ton of information on this one because you just have to see it for yourself. The books are $9.99 a piece once you have the device, but that is way cheaper than spending gas and paying upward $30 and up for books. I still believe there is a need for traditional books but this device is great for being on the go! Think about traveling...Wow! You have anything you want with you! You can even put pdf files of your own on this amazing gadget. Okay...I will stop...you have to take a look, even if you aren't interested in owning one..you will still be impressed.
