I wish the Marketing videos on the Kindle 2 web page would have shown some shots of the device in the optional cases. I know they want to show off the sleek new design but I found it so artificial showing people standing on the street and sitting on the beach reading without a cover not to mention carrying it around stuffing it in pockets and purses. It just seems to reinforce the stereotype that a lot of people have that electronic reader are too cold and sterile to read on comfortably.

These covers look really good but I'd like to see better pictures with the K2 in them. Probably just a timing thing because the covers weren't available yet when they were shooting the marketing stuff.

On an aside I found the error that snuck through amusing with the video of the current Kindle customers commenting on the new K2. It claimed the one Software Engineer was a Kindle owner since July 2007. Very impressive since they weren't available until Nov 2007.

Apparently he is an early adopter / beta tester of some kind. If he has the K2 before it was released, he probably had the K1 before release too. Not so strange.

There were a bunch of folks that wrote reviews on K1 that had been beta testers as part of the Vine program.

Perhaps in a couple of years an e-book reader will look like the top cover of a hard cover book,the whole page being refreshed in color, not thicker then 3mm, no border & touchscreen.
That'd be neat!

Their stuff usually goes on sale after a season. It'll probably drop down to $70ish.

LOL. True, but they consume way more resources for what we get from them than plant sources of calories and textiles and they produce a lot of greenhouse gasses while doing it. Seriously, cow *ahem* digestive byproducts *ahem* are a fairly large line item on the list of carbon producers.

I don't see myself giving up steak any time soon but I try to be conscious of this, limit my consumption, and have more meatless meals.

You are correct.

That's why I eat as many of 'em as possible.

Amen to that!

No one has any comment on the GelaSkins? I really love this one (zoom in and read the book titles) but I fail to understand how it works with the Kindle. I went ahead and ordered the Amazon default cover since I am slightly worried about clutching something so thin for hours and hours with my hands (old age is a wonderful thing). According to the blurb the standard(?) cover folds all the way around in back and should be very comfortable.

That's a really cool skin! I know Alisa has a skin on her Kindle 1; to me it looks like it just slides right on there with all the cutouts for the buttons and things precut. But I don't know if the picture you linked is the front or the back of the skin...

Whoa! I *love* that skin! In fact, when I get *my* Kindle 2, I'm buying one right away - along with the M-Edge case!

My skin is from DecalGirl but it works the same from what I can tell. It's basically a bunch of stickers cut to fit the case. The cutouts for the keys and such are already there.

That definitely is a cool skin, at least for the back. However, I think it would be a bit busy and distracting for me for the front. I am planning on getting a skin for the K2, as there are some times when I might want it out of the cover, not to mention they do make it easier to keep clean. I think I'll likely go for a darker color, to better set off the screen.

I went ahead and ordered this with my Kindle, as I'll be getting a slipcase from elsewhere for more protection.

I went searching for other products from this company to find reviews, according to the iPod skin product reviews, it's really a bunch of stickers that you apply carefully, not what I would consider a typical "skin" but still neat enough that I want one.
