Please don't open it again. The OP doesn't want a poll.

But I thought I was the Obfuscating Psychotic around here and I wanted the poll to stay open. I mean closed. Unless you wanted it to stay open, of course. The Kindle is delightfully ugly.

I'm not sure how I missed this poll, but I love how the Kindle looks. I even liked it when the only pic out there was the crappy FCC pic.

Oh you're the culprit. That's ok, the Kindle looks like it belongs in the 1960s as much as the tricorder does.

Yes, I thought that Spock was the ideal candidate to prove that the Kindle looks like it was from the future in the past.

I didn't vote. Not sure if it looks good or bad. To me, it looks ok. I'm not really interested in the look of the device, I'm more interested in the contents.
