These complaints strike me as being ridiculous (I'm primarily commenting on points 5 & 6). I agree that there is plenty of room for improvement in the arena of eBook readers, but these grievances are, quite frankly, ignorant. He fails to understand the purpose of the device.

Complaining that the Kindle doesn't have a social function and lacks a touchscreen is like buying a car and complaining that it doesn't have an integrated hairdryer and deployable tank treads. Are they useful in limited circumstances? Sure, but it all it does is bloat the device with unneeded features that don't fit the scope of the intended audience.

Plus, I'd bet a weeks pay that this is the same kind of person that would be complaining that the device was too unwieldy and complicated had those features been included.
