A kindle revolution

I think Amazon and Jeff Bezos got it right. Of course I haven't been able to play with one and probably won't get the chance for a long time since I live in Sweden. But the significant features all seems to be there. No syncing with a computer that can cause problems. No data plans. Always access to a bookstore, and a good one that is. Previews of both books and newspapers. Reasonable prices. And of course access to Wikipedia. Just imagine reading some stuff in a book or newspaper and being able to immediately look it up in Wikipedia. Even when you're on the road! Awesome! I would love to have one! Check out the Kindle from Amazon!

Someone put it nicely when they said that the Kindle isn't a e-book reader but an e-library!
