Service Description

Like a lot of people, when I first heard about the Kindle, I was a bit skeptical. I had seen other e-book readers and they never quite matched expectations. However, Amazon's Kindle has met--and surpassed--all my expectations. Every once in a while, a piece of technology comes along that you later look back on and say, "how did we ever survive without that?" We have said that about the fax machine, cell phone, the internet, the ipod (I suppose my great-grandparents said that about the telephone). I think we will say that about the Kindle because it has the real potential to fundamentally change the way we read books. And that could be for the better. Making it easier to read, which the Kindle does, means you read more. Reading more means becoming more informed and more productive. Some have called the Kindle the "ipod for readers". The real ipod makes us happy because it is easier to listen to more music. The Kindle makes us happy because it allows us greater access to information and reading material that we might not otherwise get around to reading. Well it took me over a year to get an ipod after it first came out. With the Kindle, I have become a much earlier "adopter" and believer.

Since the Kindle is still so new, it admittedly has had a bit of a "which came first, the chicken or the egg" problem. Do people buy the Kindle now, hoping that the books and content will follow? Or do content providers wait until there is a critical mass of Kindle owners before...
