Anyone have an Amazon Kindle?

Amazon Kindle

Do any witz.org readers have one of these apparently awesome Kindle from Amazon? We gotta admit we are tempted to purchase.

For those who have no earthly idea what these are, Amazon describes it as a wireless reading device, which is pretty accurate – you can download electronic versions of books straight to it via built in Sprint EVDO networking. Tres’ awesome.

The downside? Some people are are a bit down on it, the design geeks think it stinks, and it costs $399. Eek.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments please. Yes, those are referral links to Amazon.
