When I first saw the title of the thread, I thought you were going to criticize the quality of the cable that comes with the Kindle, and I was ready to take issue with that position, as it is of excellent quality. But instead, you're criticizing the placement of the USB port, and you are 100% right on the money: the bottom of the reader could not be a more inconvenient place to plug into.

On the bright side, although is a bit of an awkward way to do things, the new version of the software (2.3) allows for screen rotation, so now when I read while charging, I rotate the screen 180 degrees.
