Mark Pilgrim vs. Amazon Kindle

Mark Pilgrim brilliantly uses Jeff Bezos’ own words against Amazon’s new e-book reader (and juxtaposes quotes from Orwell’s “1984”.)

Kindle will fail just like Sony LIBRIe did (I was working for Sony at the time so I could only tell people internal to Sony why the LIBRIe would eventually fail, which it did for all the right reasons.)

Proprietary platform built for commercial gain, not for user needs.
