What's all the hype surrounding Amazon's Kindle ebook reader? 300+ bucks for a device that requires me to buy electronic books to use it properly and has only one function? I might as well just buy a physical book instead of such a device on top of it that can't do much anything else. I can buy an iphone or ipod touch for that price, have a great audiobook and ebook-reader (through free apps like stanza) and do 1000+ things more on it. Leo Laporte is talking about Kindle as if it's the best thing since sliced bread. Sometimes i believe he just buys every crap gadget out there just because he can afford it and has nothing better to do.
