Missing features: Gutenberg, Google Books, Google News, open RSS aggregator

Shouldn't Amazon add direct access over EVDO to the following online content:

- http://gutenberg.org

- http://books.google.com

- http://news.google.com

- Any RSS feed pulled in the RSS aggregator

Amazon can then charge whatever price they want per megabyte for the EVDO bandwidth consumed for accessing those services.

It is awesome that Amazon provides built-in access to Wikipedia for free. Probably that they are going to charge for Wikipedia at some point, unless they specifically state that Wikipedia access will remain free, thus I guess wikipedia pictures are compressed and the contents reformatted to save bandwidth by only send one page at the time to the device.

I believe that if there are other online book stores, Amazon could also open up access over the EVDO to those competing bookstores. Thus DRM-infected Mobipocket and DRM-infected PDF should be supported, or at least some interoperabillity API should be provided by Amazon to make those competing DRM formats interoperable. For example a mobipocket or PDF DRM-infected file should be converted to the Kindle DRM format.
