If you have been on the Internet in the last few years, then you know what Amazon is. If you read at all (unlike me), you probably have used it. Here's another reason to keep using it, the Amazon Kindle.
The Kindle is a totally new, totally cool device that lets you read books on the go without having to fill your bags with them. It, with the help of the Internet, allows owners to purchase electronic versions of all their favourite books from the Kindle. With this little gadget, you can flip the pages almost all of the New York Times' Bestsellers for $10.00 each. And if you think about everything that has to go into organizing these sales, it's a pretty damn good deal.
In addition to that, you can have renowned U.S. and world newspapers delivered to you daily. But that's not it, throughout the day, the Kindle automatically updates you on the world's most popular blogs including BoingBoing and Slashdot.
Plus, you can email your Microsoft Word documents and images to your Kindle for easy viewing. Editing your latest report is perfect for those traffic jams in rush hour in my opinion.
Of course, there's no internet costs to you because of the advanced technology that the Kindle employs to connect you quickly.
One last cool feature: If you come across a word that you don't recognize, turn it over to Wikipedia, right on your Kindle. And it will surprise you how many times you'll need this little thing.
But don't take my word, go over to the Amazon Kindle page and check it out!
