Kindle User Experience Note #1

A nice moment: I am browsing the Kindle store on my laptop. I load things up — lots of sample chapters, a few full books — and the Kindle itself (four inches to the left of my hands) flashes in recognition as the material peels off of Amazon’s servers and coasts through the Sprint network into my little e-book. Like literally, the whole screen does this funky inversion — you know the effect if you have a Kindle, or any E-Ink device — and then, there it is. Hello “Chasing the Flame.” Hello “Time and Materials.” Neat!
