A follow-up by Tim on this whole Kindle thing.  Turns out he was really talking about the iPod, and the points he raises about that I firmly agree with.  I just don’t see the Kindle as something that would ever be able to catch up to where the iPod/iPhone already are.  His point number 5 is the most compelling to me:  “Media Devices Should Do More Than One Thing.”  As long as the thing is an “electronic reader” and not a “networked digital manipulation device,” it will remain too limited for most of us going forward.
