I’ve not gotten around this week to commenting on Amazon’s Kindle, mostly because it doesn’t thrill me all that much. I’m chomping at the bit, OTOH, for the Chumby that Santa Claus has in a sack with my name on it. While my unconscious was working on a post explaining that, Mark Pilgrim went ahead and did it for me, and Cory stuck it on boingboing: Amazon Kindle: the Web makes Amazon go bad crazy. Cory’s additional points at bb are spot on, but make sure you click through to Mark’s orginal article; it’s a great read as well.

  • Chumby: open, hackable, wifi
  • Kindle: closed, DRM’d, EVDO
  • Decision: Chumby
