He probably would have except he ran out of poll slots, they only allow for 30 answers. :wink2:

Hey, I'm still waiting for my 10 bucks from the prerelease thread from way back when! :smug2: :)

Yep, it will get dirty quick.

That won't be a problem, though. I bet you $10 it will also be available in black.

I'm new, but I'll take that bet! I'm guessing that Amazon will let you buy a Kindle in any colour you like, as long as it's white.

Maybe a while after launch, when people have complained long enough, they might relent and break out with off-white or, for the thrill seeker, gasp, black. ;) The tone of the article seemed like they mean for the hardware to fade into the background and be as inoffensive and bland as possible.

For real: not-orange; aside from that I don't care.

I might even be able to bring myself to live with orange. :)

Yeah, I goofed.

FYI: Did you know that "Whiter Shade of Pale" is going to be the new white next season?

I couldn't get the song out of my head. Maybe Amazon can use it for the Kindle TV ad. :chinscratch:

Well, since, according to various fourth estate members, the Kindle is for women and a dying breed: I say hot pink.

Is IPHONE WHITE not an option? On a side note I had to do a double take at first glance it was probably not a good idea to put offwhite above milk in the list, My eyes played a trick on me.

Someone suggested this at Amazon's last board meeting. Jeff Bezos asked, "When was the last time you had a piss test?" Then Bezos fired him before he even had a chance to answer.

This poll is racist.

Only if you beleive an electronic gadget can be identified by race. But since the whole concept of race is complete bunk, why not. :)
