You are a cheapskate. You're an IT professional, aren't you? I wouldn't have thought that $80 represented terribly many hours of work for you. Just think of the enormously greater number of hours of enjoyment that such a device would bring you. Balance the time taken to earn the money against the time enjoying the results. For me, it's a simple equation.
Oh no! Name calling! Is that not a violation of your precious "posting guidelines"? Shame on you.

What do you mean "name calling"? Stating that an professional person who's only willing to spend $20 on a bookreader is a cheapskate is not "name calling"; it's a simple statement of fact.

And calling someone "trolling" a troll is also a statement of a fact, is it not? Or have I got something completely wrong?

It is indeed; it simply happens to be one which our rules specifically prohibit. Complain to Alexander Turcic, the board owner if you don't like it. The Mod Team don't invent the rules - we just enforce them.

Okay, then would you mind editing your earlier post calling jbcohen a cheapskate. You aren't aware of his financial standing and as such shouldn't be commenting on his fiscal matters.

I'm still thinking about the cheapskate idea. Technically, I make enough money to make $80 seem absurdly affordable, but overpriced goods and services have a way of inhaling paychecks. I've often gotten in trouble by not being more of a cheapskate.

Also: the poster to whom you responded is listed as owning a Kindle Fire as well as a K3. I agree it's disconcerting to hear someone talk about wanting to pay "$20 or $30" for a Kindle -- I myself would like to buy the Pittock Mansion for a handful of grapefruit slices -- but perhaps they've only now realized they're on a budget and own a usable e-reader and tablet.

Guys, we don't discuss moderating decisions in public, and that's an end to it. If you think that a post violates the rules, click the "!" button alongside it. If you're unhappy with the actions of a moderator, please send a PM to the board owner, Alexander Turcic.

Let's have an end to this, please.

Edited above post to avoid any mention of The Decisions. Please let me know if I've retained any objectionable language.

I wonder if this new kindle will look any different, or just follow the path of the nook?

"Form follows function" as the saying goes. The appearance is to a large extent constrained by the functionality. I imagine that, if it exists at all, it will look much the same as the existing Touch.

My guess is that it will be the same exact Touch we have now, but with the extra production step of adding the light and the extra software to control it.

In fact, if the report is accurate there is only a $10 or even $0 price increase, I bet the existing Touch will go away.

I don't know if the contrast difference would be enough to justify the logistics behind two very similar models and those that don't want the light could just never turn it on.

Now if the price is more than a $10 difference, then they would probably keep both Touch models.
