NYT Kindle Review
Quick link to Randall Stross’ New York Times review of Amazon’s Kindle reader. In a nutshell, Stross likes it:
My wife, skeptical that a digital screen could ever approach the readability of ink on paper, was so intrigued by the Kindle when it arrived last week that she snatched it from my grasp. I haven’t been able to pry it away from her since.
But he spends most of his article defending the book industry against Steve Jobs’ “nobody reads books” line from last week. Me thinks he protesteth too much (and forgets that Jobs is a master of misdirection.) Whilst I doubt that ebooks is a focus of Apple’s attention, I’m not alone in thinking that there will be a big brother for the ipod touch that does ebooks better than most things around. But that’s for another post. For the time being, chalk up at least one more ebook convert.
