The Kindle from Amazon
So we’re obviously a little behind on some things. Heck I dont even know when the Kindle was released but! I do remember the CEO of amazon going on the Daily Show so that counts for something right? Anyways, It’s very interesting, the concept of paperless books. This is a blog so I feel comfortable giving a small opinion on this. To me I like books. I like my bookcase and would love to in the future have a smallish library for our kids to go read in. “Little jamie you bad, go read now!” Kidding. That’s just me. I cant deny where we are going with technology, less moving parts, more touchscreens, voice recognition, and leaning towards inventions like the kindle, the ipod, iphone, xboxlive will become more of a part of our everyday lives. Here’s the Deets.
