Just announced last month is Amazon's strangely styled and potentially disruptive new e-book reader, dubbed "Kindle."
I don't know about you but that title makes me think of Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451... Get video, images and blurbs from Amazon or google it for alternate perspectives.

Could be interesting to see how this entry plays into the emerging ecologies of literate media and media literacy.
