While we're at it, the Kindle will also destroy Book Stores. You know, those places people go to hang out, study, read together, drink coffee, dig around, and otherwise...
Ugh... The Kindle is a piece, but eventually they'll make one that people will want to buy, and they'll make it at a reasonable price.
Right now, Kindles are kind of like Mac computers; overpriced for what you get, limited in use and unintuitive when coming from the modern, standards based world.
There is just no real reason to buy a Kindle, or the lesser known Sony products like it.
