24hrs with the K.

I got my Kindle about 10 am yesterday and I can't keep my hands off of it.

My only problem so far is that there are so many other things to do (shop amazon, read blogs, send documents, etc.) that I am not really reading books very much. Mostly because I have the attention span of a gnat. Actually though, I am reading quite a bit, I'm just not reading what I intended to read. I WAS reading Moby Dick but I got a sample of another book from Amazon last night and got so into it that I ended up purchasing the whole thing this morning before I finished breakfast. I guess Amazon Kindle's advertising model is working on me at least.

Some things are slower than I would like. I had just imagined the email to me@kindle.com would be as instantaneous as email and Looking up someting on Wikipedia is painfully slow. I think that could be solved with a "no images" option in the wiki browser and the email thing probably just needs to have more hardware thrown at it. At any rate, I am optimistic.

I have quite a few Palm .PDB books that I would like to convert with the TOC and hyperlinks intact to prc and have not figured out how to do that yet.

The point at which I KNEW I had bet on a winner with the Kindle was when I had a brief urge to reach up and turn the page. It really DOES look like a printed page.

Finally, I love the little "Milk and Chrome" scroll bar display but it kind of freaks me out a little because, I mean.... What the hell is that anyway?
