Kindling the Heart

After selling out its initial version of its Kindle e-book reader (and building up a substantial waiting list), Amazon has put out a second version, which is reportedly smaller, lighter, and has a larger capacity.

One somewhat unexpected market for the Kindle: Judges. Most federal courts (including all of the ones in California) require court papers to be filed in electronic (pdf) form; and according to anecdotal evidence, federal judges have been acquiring Kindles to allow them to review court papers away from their chambers.

As for me, I still read books the old-fashioned way: on paper.
