Is the world ready for e-books? Brad Stone debates the matter in the New York Times and takes a peek at latest developments, including the imminent launch of Amazon.com's Kindle, an electronic book reader which will connect electronically to Amazon's site without the need for books to be uploaded via a computer. (Read up on the specs at Endgadget, from whence I shamelessly nicked the pic.)
Sadly users of other digital book devices, like the Sony Reader, will not be able to upload books from Amazon's site.
I reckon Kindle looks like a 1970's calculator. Not sexy.
Silly name too.
