Robert Scoble was so excited to receive his new Amazon Kindle ebook reader that he videotaped the exciting unboxing. The Kindle reviews seem to be falling into two camps: 1) the hardcore tech peeps who don't like it because they prefer a multi-use device that functions as an ebook/phone/pda/computer/espresso maker and 2) the hardcore readers who love it because it does one thing and does it very well -- allow you to instantly buy books from Amazon.com using your existing account and be able to carry around hundreds of books with you when you're on the go.
You can find out more about the Kindle (or buy one) at
Amazon.com. They are really selling out; they are now on backorder until December 6th so you might want to hurry if it's part of your holiday shopping plans.
