Billionaire Warren Buffett may join Kindle crowd

This week, Warren Buffett, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, revealed to CNBC correspondent Julia Boorstin that he'll "probably" get an Amazon Kindle as he "edges" into the 21st century.

Quote:
Julia: Does this mean you're going to be getting a Kindle?

Buffett: I probably will, after hearing about it today. And I ran into a number of people that have Kindles and who are just in love with them. In fact, a woman that is the wife of another attendee here, came in on the plane with us, and she was using a Kindle and was wildly enthusiastic about it.

Julia: So this is going to be your new technology?

Buffett: Well, who knows? I mean, I kind of edge into technology. I'm just getting into the 20th century. I'll be working on the 21st century pretty soon, yeah. (Laughs.)
The Kindle may not be the iPod; but if it's the 21st century device that could turn a Mr. Buffett, with his ever-present folksy, low-tech wisdom, to cutting-edge technology, then this would be an achievement hardly surpassed by any other device.

Edit: My apologies to daffy4u who was quicker in spotting the news!
