Thoughts on the new Amazon Kindle 3 & eReaders

September 2, 2010 by · 14 Comments 

Courtesy of my friend @sitar, I was able to play around with the new Amazon Kindle 3 + 3G yesterday. I quite like it. It is really small, thin, and feels much better than the previous generation, which I reviewed here. However, some of the things that bothered me about the previous generation are still there… […]

Apple has a knack for making things look nice. So it goes without saying that the new magic trackpad looks awesome.
