Thanks for that. A friend told me about it, but I missed it when it was on.

Oh, and I vote for truthful and funny, not that I have anything against iPads.

I saw that last night during SNL and told my wife it made me glad I went with a clearance Sony over a Kindle.

It's like the old Grey Poupon commercials w/o the tongue-in-cheek quality

I think it effectively brings home a benefit of e-ink that many are not aware of.

The irony is that there are reports that the K3 page turns slow down significantly in the heat (while this may have always been the case, it seems this is more pronounced). I wonder if the new Sony's will have the same problem.

Apple taught the competition about such advertising with the way they promoted their own products previously now everyone is doing it to them from Verizon and Motorola and their droid ads and now Amazon with this.

Yeah, I'm no fan of the Apple collective, but I can certainly picture the ad from Apple:

Same two actors in the waiting queue for the resort restaurant that evening. Guy has his iPad, woman has her Kindle. She's reading as she waits. He pulls out the iPad and...

...checks his reservation status
...checks his email
...discovers that there are still tickets available for a show/movie/whatever and orders them immediately

"So, good book?"

Amazon should rise above Apple and get a sense of humour.

Are the kind of people who read books likely to get a kick out of being able to ? Those in the market for a tech device, sure.

Maybe Sony should try an ad with three gardeners:

'The walls of my orchard have stronger cement than yours.'

'The walls of my match-wood garden are much higher than yours.'

'My garden doesn't have any walls, so I grow whatever I like.'

What goes around comes around.
Not that there is anything to get excited over; the guy could be reading on any LCD tablet device. Nobody is called out by name or portrayed by a dumpy clueless guy.
To me the ad is just saying "yes, you can read outdoors in it."

I personally like ads like that. It shows the advantages and disadvantages of both devices...

The iPad had a lot of publicity over it auto shutting down when it got hot, then very quickly reports seemed to fade away. We'll see the same with the Kindle.

Not sure about the Sony.

Considering the 3g Kindle can do this as well (in the US at least) it wouldn't really be accurate.
