Kindle DX

First off, let me say that I have wanted a Kindle for a long time. I think it is an awesome idea, and I can't wait to own one for myself.

The problem is, until they get this thing right, I am holding off. How freaking hard can it be to make a COLOR version that can do audio and video? It has been out long enough to mature that much.

I was SUPER excited to hear about the DX! That excitement was short lived as I soon found out it was nothing more than a super-size version of the original. Still no color or video. I don't get it.

I would LOVE to be able to get my magazine subscriptions, newspapers, and whatever books I am reading on a Kindle. However, if you can't get highres color version soft the magazines, then it is pointless in my opinion.

I still believe these book readers are amazing tools. I even use Stanza on the iPhone because I think it is such cool technology. I have been hoping to see the Kindle tunr into the killer device that lets me truly go paperless and let me ditch the stacks of RangeFinder and MacLife magazines!
