Kindle Fire

Amazon's such an amazing company. They've become the ur-etailer, and branched out to cloud computing (that few people know about) and now hardware. Wow.

I don't have a kindle, and I don't intend to buy a kindle fire, but the price point ($79! $199!) makes them almost impulse purchases. I've tried to get books on my iPad, but the experience and selection were awful, so for now I'm sticking to the library and buying used stuff on Amazon.

This is also the first serious implementation of Android on a tablet. Android -- the business model, the market approach -- reveals the extreme naivete of Google. It'll be interesting to see what a grown-up business does with it as it takes on the iPad.
