Amazon Kindle

with one comment

Gruber talks about the main reason that the Kindle, Amazon’s new Book reader and Digital Book service, won’t (and shouldn’t) take off (DRM’ed books suck ass), but there’s still one big reason why few are going to even look at the Kindle: it’s a separate device. For whatever reason, people are far more willing to spend a good chunk of change on a music player than a book reader. Digital books will only get popular if people can read them on a device they already own.
