In the Personal Tech section of the New York Times there is an article titled, What We Need on a Kindle
It starts: Amazon hasn’t even begun to ship the new Kindle. And, indeed, I haven’t even seen one yet, only photos.
But I can’t help but start thinking of all the things I’d have done differently if I was Jeff Bezos, the chief executive of Amazon. Or if I was Howard Stringer, the chief executive of Sony, the maker of the competing Sony Reader.
The article then details those suggestions. The article has a comments section.
Here was one of the comments:
How about the ability to borrow books from your local library and read them on your Kindle? The inability to do that is the only thing that’s preventing me from buying one.
