I took the plunge and got a Kindle. It arrived on Wednesday. So far, I'm relatively impressed, although Caecilia? As a default? The wireless shopping is seamless and very nice.

My fundamental problem right now is the first book I bought on the Kindle is geekporn. I'm going to enjoy reading it (I already am enjoying it), but I'm going to feel a little dirty when I'm done. Like I shouldn't have enjoyed it as much as I should. And hopefully, by making the setting 1700s England and America, Stephenson will manage to avoid another interminable Coyote == hacker metaphor. But as I write this, I realize he still has Loki to make his point.
