The Book vs. the Kindle, Round 5: The Icebreaker

Who has the smooth moves with the ladies? It's Round 5 of the smackdown between The Book and Amazon's Kindle e-reader thing. Let's check out the action:




(note: many comments have focused on how other e-readers are superior to the Kindle. We agree, and we're not against e-readers, per se. We just think the Kindle will soon be the 8-track of e-readers. And we're trying to keep our business thriving, of course. And we're just having fun. We hope you are, too).

Just wondering: is EROTIC KNIFEPLAY available on Kindle?

Jerry said...

Great feature,
I agree that an e-book is an inferior product for all the reasons you show, and that's why a Kindle book sells for half retail as a real paper book.

@Spiros - why yes, yes it is available on the Kindle - for only $7.96 and you don't even have to put on a pair of pants and drive into town to buy a copy.

Click,,,,there it is on your Kindle!!

Shazam!!

Yes, because putting on pants is such a burden...

Heh... The grudge match is entertaining and highlights much of what's wrong with the Kindle (Don't forget to drub 'em over their latest fiasco...it's bigger than most of the gotchas you've put forth combined...)

Oh, by the way...funny, funny choice of a book on round 5's video.
