Amazon Kindle - Excited!

Wireless Access

Ok.  So I ordered a Kindle.  It will arrive tomorrow - I'm stoked!  I think the days of ebooks have arrived.  The coolest thing about it: it has built-in EVDO!  It doesn't cost anything... it's built into the device price.  It has the following benefits:

  • No need to ever sync to a PC.
  • Browse and buy books, magazines and newspapers direct from the device, and have them delivered in a minute.
  • Email Word docs and pics directly to the device, for only $.10 a piece.
  • Your entire library is backed up at Amazon, so you'll never lose your books, even if something goes wrong with the device.
  • Browse Wikipedia online for free.

There's so much more to this thing.  I'll try to put up a review after using it over Thanksgiving.  For now, take a look at the deets on


PS.  Have a great Thanksgiving!  We are blessed, and have a lot to be thankful for.

That said, he spends way too much time testing cutting-edge gadgets that often come with promises of making things better and faster, but often fail to live up to those promises.  And they usually fail on the cheaper front as well.
