  1. According to the Amazon website, they pick up the wireless cost – you don’t pay for the EVDO –

    Now, perhaps that’s deceptive….

    Still, the razor analogy is apt. I’d at least look at it at $199 – not for $399 unless I hit Mega Millions.

    Also, while they have a good number of books (91K), they only have 8 magazines and 8 newspapers. If they build those out, the value proposition improves.

    I would like to see the screen, though – it’d be nice to see it at a Best Buy, you know? Don’t like buying blind – especially at that price.

  3. One thing about email contact management… if you actually stick to opt-in ONLY, you’ll be hitting people who are already receptive to your message. Your list will be a lot smaller, but it might be much more effective.

    Just a thought from a musician who hates getting emails from bands he never signed up with.

  5. Eric – If the screen looks as good as the Sony one it is awesome, it’s much closer to paper than screen. I’m starting to feel a pull at my wallet.

    Matthew – Very good point, for business to consumer the opt-in is sacred and should not be violated, for business to business it’s much grayer. Thanks, that’s a good topic for a future show. ps – The new album is great, except for that Ninja track.
