That Smell! That Self-Absorbed Ego Smell!

Speculation on an Amazon iPad competitor

I don’t know why it has taken most of us this long to figure this out

Because most of you are only circle-jerking each other, reading inside your own goddammed little silos?

And Ihnakto:

But I do know that Amazon has all of the required pieces in place and that they — not Google, not Motorola, not HP, RIM, Samsung, or any other tech company

Gee, did ya ever see this chart?

Did any of you ever see these posts?

Now you know why I don’t read any of you.

  1. So you’re resting from us unreadworthy Twitter types ? :-)
    My interest in an Amazon tablet of some type that could do video streaming, enhanced ebooks, etc. goes back a bit. (I think it would be supplemental to e-Ink, not kill it.)

    Jan. 7, 2010 – Mirasol on new Kindle likely? (It’d need a new O/S.)

  2. At first I felt you must be doing an experiment re stopping Twitter. But I guess something(s) got to you.

    At any rate, I enjoy your huge range of interests and your gut reactions. Will just check here then.

    I did go to CVS nearby and they didn’t have the Craig, they had a Sylvania ! with the same specs – only 800×600 or so resolution. $79.

      The Craig had the same resolution, most 7″ ones do. Many people rooting the Sylvania on YouTube too. IIRC, they seem to like the Craig more.

  3. Thanks, will check out what they’re saying.
