Simple Touch Comparisons with a Kindle

I have recently bought a second ereader to go with my basic kindle, a simple touch. Now I am comparing the two readers and looking at the various differences between the two. I would like to see what forum members who have a kindle and a simple touch think about the differences between the two. I don't think one is better than the other, I think both have advantages and problems. Below is what I find the differences to be and I am grousing about both.

The simple touch's controls are very sensitive contributing to my loosing my place by a random bump somewhere. The Kindle's controls by comparison I need to really mash them by comparison to the simple touch. I can see benefits and problems with both approaches, I loose my place a lot with the simple touch however the kindle is a bit problematic since i need to exert a bit of pressure to change the pages.

I think that B&N has put a lot of thought into the interface and has made it a lot more elaborate then amazon has. While I think that the simple touch's interface is excellent I think that Amazon's interface is a bit simpler and perhaps a bit easier to understand and work with then the simple touch is.
