    Kindle: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

    Product Overview

    • Revolutionary electronic-paper display provides a sharp, high-resolution screen that looks and reads like real paper.
    • Simple to use: no computer, no cables, no syncing.
    • Wireless connectivity enables you to shop the Kindle Store directly from your Kindle—whether you’re in the back of a taxi, at the airport, or in bed.
    • Buy a book and it is auto-delivered wirelessly in less than one minute.
    • More than 88,000 books available, including 100 of 112 current New York Times® Best Sellers.
    • New York Times® Best Sellers and all New Releases $9.99, unless marked otherwise.
    • Free book samples. Download and read first chapters for free before you decide to buy.
    • Top U.S. newspapers including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post; top magazines including TIME, Atlantic Monthly, and Forbes—all auto-delivered wirelessly.

    • Long battery life. Leave wireless on and recharge approximately every other day. Turn wireless off and read for a week or more before recharging. Fully recharges in 2 hours.
    • Unlike WiFi, Kindle utilizes the same high-speed data network (EVDO) as advanced cell phones—so you never have to locate a hotspot.
    • No monthly wireless bills, service plans, or commitments—we take care of the wireless delivery so you can simply click, buy, and read.
    • Includes free wireless access to the planet's most exhaustive and up-to-date encyclopedia—Wikipedia.org.

    There are gains for all our losses
    There are balms for all our pain
    But, when youth, the dream, departs
    It takes something from our hearts
    And it never comes again

    "Captain, it is I Ensign Pulver. I just threw your damn palm tree overboard. Now, what's all this crap about no movie tonight?" -Ens Pulver in Mister Roberts

    The man who will go where his colors go, without asking who will fight a phantom foe in the jungle and mountain range, without counting, and who will suffer and die in the midst of incredible hardship, without complaint, is still what he has always been, from Imperial Rome to sceptered Britain to democratic America. He is the stuff of which legions are made. ...His pride is in his colors and his regiment, his training hard and thorough and coldly realistic, to fit him for what he must face...and his obedience is to his orders. He has been called United State Marine.

    If it weren't $400 I'd be all over that.
