On Amazon's Kindle

There was a lot of buzz last week over the new Amazon Kindle reader, and a lot of people said they wanted one. I withheld comment for one reason...I don't get it. Most of my feelings are summed up here. My biggest complaints from that are that this thing is butt ugly, it is not particularly user friendly (mostly because we haven't figured out electronic copyrights yet), and it requires you to pay for otherwise free content. While I anxiously await an electronic book reader that will be a killer ap for me, the Kindle isn't it. If push came to shove, I'd rather have a Sony Reader despite that product's limitations.
