You can read with one hand!

Some of you may have seen this on the Daily Show the other day. Jon Stewart talks to the founder of Amazon about the new Kindle 2. I thought it was interesting and relevant to the class...and funny, of course.

Here's a link to the actual product.

That's a great clip, Joe, thanks. It's interesting how silly all of the Kindle's features sound when Jeff Bezos tries to describe them (read with one hand...ok, I guess. "electronic paper display"--what?!). I haven't seen a Kindle yet, but it makes me think that it's so different from a book that it becomes difficult to describe in terms and concepts that we associate with books.

Anybody have one?

Morris and I have been trying to track one down - without much luck just yet! Apparently the library *used* to have some early e-books, but alas no longer do.

Ipswich is a cozy and beautiful city with rich history. This place has many unique features and attractions. Ipswich has recently received a significant status - the cleanest city in the United Kingdom. https://cheapminibuscoachhire.co.uk/minibus-hire-sheffield/

The referendum begins a day after the Victory Day parade on Moscow's Red Square that commemorated the 75th anniversary of Nazi Germany's surrender at the end of World War II in Europe."It is impossible to imagine what the world would be like if the Red Army had not come to defend it," Putin said Wednesday.The military deployment was intended to boost patriotic pride as the capital emerges from confinement - a week earlier than the mayor planned - and critics say it is designed to tip the balance in the president's favor.
