    Well the fish outnumber the birds, but those birds are sharp!

    Shown here is an original Kindle DX alongside a current-gen Kindle.  The screen on the little guy is supposed to have 50% better contrast.  The difference between the two is maybe a bit more apparent in person, but they’re both pretty awesome, really.  Amazon’s reading machine is an excellent travel companion and the battery life is outstanding.  About a week’s worth of use before it needs a charge.  I really dig the idea of E Ink.  It certainly is easy on the eyes for long durations, and it uses no power to maintain an image.  If this technology can be adapted to display color, I’ll bet it has a bright future to come.
