Yawn--veinglory


Amazon has a huge spot in the middle of their main page about how they are unable to keep their Kindle device in stock. They have however refused to state how many they ever had in stock, or even a ballpark figure of how many they have sold. There is a link to a 5 page letter about humans 'coevolving' with their tools. Call me cynical but this looks, to me, more like desperation than success.

Other recent Amazon talk:
Dear Author--Publishers Get Wise, Undercut Amazon prices
Technology Owl--Amazon Sues New York Over Net Sales Tax
James Chamberlin--...a letter from Jeff Bezos blathering on about their electronic book reader...
