The Kindle - Has Its Time Come?
Amazon.com is selling the Kindle 2 for $359. That's only for Kindle itself - it doesn't include any books or subscriptions to magazines or newspapers. So it's pretty expensive, and it doesn't make sense to me, especially since I economize by borrowing nearly all the books I read from the library.
But here's an astounding thing I read today - The New York Times costs twice as much, over a 1 year period to print and distribute as it would cost for the Times to buy each of its subscribers a Kindle.
Perhaps the Kindle's time has come faster than I had anticipated.
But what about the crosswords?
