Tech Critic Quote of the Day

Slate's Farhad Manjoo, coming to the same conclusion as I do about the Kindle:

the Kindle is an imperfect match for the paper. Indeed, it's not even as good as a smartphone. At about 10:30 last night, I loaded up my Kindle expecting to find today's newspaper—which, after all, had already been posted online. But all I found was old news; the Kindle updates once a day, in the middle of the night. My iPhone gets news all the time, and, through each paper's Web site, it shows me the news in a way that suggests what's important. It makes calls, too.

And most important of all - books never run out of batteries when you're stuck somewhere you can't recharge them.
