Kindle's most interesting feature

Tuesday, November 20, 2007 by Dave Winer.

The most interesting thing I've heard so far sbout Kindle is that it is untethered. It does its own synching, it doesn't depend on a computer to do it, eliminating the chief hassle of iPods. Permalink to this paragraph

Can it subscribe to a podcast feed? Can it play audio? I don't know. Permalink to this paragraph

Kevin Marks says that Kindle requires DRM. "It makes things do less and cost more, and means they will break suddenly without warning when the service inevitably goes bust." Permalink to this paragraph

David Rothman is an eBook expert with a blog. I'm subscribed. Apparently he's been following the development of Kindle for a long time. Thanks to Amyloo for the pointer. Permalink to this paragraph
