Not really sure what the people who own kindles have to say. The same applies to them except Amazon offers the amazon prime service with "some" free videos and ebooks
Could it be that some of us like reading on an e-ink device as the sales of the Kindle show? The problem with BN is that they bit off more of an apple than they had the capital to back it up.
As to being tied down to an ecosystem, that doesn't seem to be the case with Apple or Amazon. It's what is in the ecosystem that is the turning point. BN just didn't have a system that could compare to those two.
