Kindle Comes to AT&T Stores; Who Cares

In an age when most people find it difficult to read anything beyond those stupid 64-character twitter feeds, does it f*cking matter that the Amazon Kindle e-reader is coming to the AT&T retail stores (company-owned only).

Of course, it doesn’t matter.

Amazon’s move to bring the Kindle to AT&T stores is part of the e-tailer’s strategy to make the device more easily available.

Besides Amazon’s online store, Kindle is sold at Staples, Best Buy, BJ’s, J&R (NYC), Fred Meyer and Target stores.

AT&T will start selling the Kindles from March 6.

For the countless schmucks that throng this blog, Kindle connects over both Wi-Fi and AT&T’s mobile 3G broadband network, wirelessly downloads books, magazines, newspapers, blogs and personal documents to a 6-inch, high-resolution electronic paper display that looks and reads like real paper.

The wireless plus 3G version costs $189 while the wireless version is $139.

If you believe Amazon, the Kindle can store 3,500 books.

The Kindle Store at Amazon that lets you buy all those e-books to feed your Kindle is said to offer 810,000 books.

    Have you read ‘Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation By Jason Mattera’
    nothing more than what you already know.. and I think coming from India, you do know more of his tactics than the americans..anyway good read.

    I saw tamilnadu vote for JJ the first time, and the people were saying, we voted because she’s fair and beautiful..( well JJ is just an example, don’t we just vote because the congress was there during Independence, and just give KK the rule because the JJ govt is shit) but is it the first time in america… just curious… some of the american public seem to be in a state of shock with the kind of political brainwashing.. but didnt Bush get elected the second time using the same ways.. whats different here?, the public response??.. Responds:

    We don’t think we’d heard of Jason Mattera earlier (we’re more familiar with the conservative writer Dinesh D’Souza).

    But anyone on the Right (as in Conservative, Republican, Tea Party, Birthers) makes no sense most of the time with their vicious rants against Obama, Unions, Gays, Abortion, Islam, Immigrants, Taxes, Medicaid, Social Security, Health Care for People and vulgar shouts in favor of Corporation, Tax Cuts for the Rich, War, Oil Drilling, Church, Outsourcing, Free Trade, Privatization and Restrictions on Abortion.

    The vast majority of those voting for the Republicans are clueless bozos because they are voting against their self-interest.

    The political brainwashing is mainly from that garbage channel Fox News, which tragically is the No-1 cable channel. 🙁

    As for your point on Congress and Independence, let’s not forget that after so many splits the Congress Party we have in India today is hardly the same one that played a crucial role in the Independence struggle.

      The congress I think was different even right after the Independence, they should have disbanded… like Gandhi wished!! (I havent found any credible links to this claim, but the opposition parties seem to use it regularly)

      have also heard about it all these years.. wikipedia also has a mention.. maybe ‘Freedom at Midnight’ has some answers Responds:

      Congress or BJP… What an odious choice! The Indian masses are trapped between Scylla and Charybdis.
