In face of all opposition, I have long been a proponent of eBooks. Too bad the technology wasn't there.
Welcome Kindle, in certain respects it surpassed my expectations, and in certain regards it didn't meet them.
- The book buying experience by far.
- The authoring publishing mechanism.
- MP3 + Blog reading
- EVDO connectability.
Didn't meet -
- The ugly duckling form factor (please, learn from the iPhone, knock the buttons off and give us a bigger screen).
- No color (technology limitation).
- Content available (will get better with time).
Overall, I am thrilled. Big victory for both book readers and authors. Good job Amazon.
