Dear Amazon Kindle,
We all love the way you look. It’s true that you are not the most innovative designed gadget in the world. Working with your buttons are painful and we usually end up touching 4 or 5 buttons at once (no we don’t have freakishly huge fingers). But we love the way you allow us to read eBooks on the go. Better yet. We love the fact that we can download pirated books onto you, and save money.
But why are no so unkind to us? Why don’t you show books in color like they are supposed to be. It’s not as if we live in the 18th century. And you did not come cheap either, did you now? $399 for you and a 6 months wait (must have been!). Sure. You do offer a poor man’s GPS and games and stuff, but is it to much to ask to have you married with backlit functionality?
And what’s up with the battery issue? Why is it that when the device is turned off, you still consume battery? We always hated that about the PDAs, but it wouldn’t be a problem if we could turn you off for a month and you still had battery left for an hour of read. No! You are out after about 7 or 8 days. That’s not fair.
So please. Be kind to us. Don’t freeze up on us frequently, and stop giving us the “wireless not available” sign. You want us to stay friends, don’t you?
