A Thin Slab of Book

,----[ Quote ]
| Not very bigThe Kindle is one of those devices that tends to elicit one of 
| two responses: "waste of money" or "must have it now." For quite awhile, I 
| had the first reaction. Then, after what one might call a "context shift," I 
| found myself squarely embracing the second.

Kindle 2 hacks: bypassing Whispernet

,----[ Quote ]
| Vincent has also achieved a root shell with telnet access on his Kindle but
| for the time being has declined to share step-by-step details on how to
| achieve this for yourself. He writes, "If you're interested in voiding the
| warranty on your Kindle 2, my writeup about USB Networking, igorsk's posts
| from 2007, the Kindle 2.0.1 update, a copy of the right build of busybox and
| a little bit of hackery will get you your very own login on a cute little ARM
| Linux box with 128 megs of RAM."


5 Reasons Why I Bought a Kindle 2

,----[ Quote ]
| Until the release of this version of the Kindle, I hadn't been particularly
| interested in buying one. Frankly, I thought the first Kindle was ugly and a
| rather stupid idea. I chuckled and snorted with derision when Amazon first
| announced it, sure that it would be just another e-book bomb like so many
| before it. But oddly enough, the Kindle turned out to be a reasonable success
| with around 500,000 estimated sales last year.
