Gotta Have it: Kindle2

The Amazon Kindle 2
Okay, so I'd heard about this thing on the various tech blogs and sites I'll admit to reading.
But frankly, it just didn't grab me.
Over the weekend, however, I was searching for a book and came across these videos about the Kindle.
I'm singing a different tune now. 1500 books? Download from anywhere without a computer or WiFi connection? What's not to love?
Check it out:
