Are you familiar with Amazon’s electronic book called the Kindle? I want one. The online Kindle Store, accessible through the Kindle itself, features a couple hundred thousand books, available instantly for around ten bucks each. If traveling, load the Kindle up with books on your reading list and hit the road– so much easier to carry than a sackful of ink-on-paper. Forgot your reading glasses? No problem. The Kindle’s type size is adjustable. Newspaper and magazine subscriptions for publications like the NY Times and the New Yorker are available, and blogs, which cost about 1.99 cents for each subscription, can be downloaded, too. Unlike RSS readers which often only provide headlines, Kindle blog feeds provide full text content and images, and are updated wirelessly throughout the day. The cost of the wireless connection is included in the price, which is about $350. The choice of art blogs available for Kindle is growing.
Update: As of May 15, 2009, Two Coats of Paint is available on Kindle.
