I'm a gadget guy, but when I first heard of the Kindle, I was not impressed, or interested. I really didn't see the need, and couldn't imagine I'd ever want to read books on an electronic device. I'd read reviews complaining it was hard to hold because of the odd button placement, and I was put off by all the "future of books" baloney. My wife kept pitching it to me, but it left me cold.
I primarily read books on the commuter train. I began to notice it was becoming difficult to read, even with my progressive lenses (I'm 53) and early in 2008 I stopped reading books altogether; it was just too uncomfortable. I needed younger eyes or longer arms. My wife wondered if the Kindle allowed you to change font sizes. I looked into it, and found that it did. The Kindle didn't seem like such a useless device anymore.
That's all she needed to hear. She bought me a Kindle for Christmas, and I've been using it for a month now. It is far and away the best gift I've ever received.
I am, of course, delighted I can easily change the font size as needed, which allows me to read again. Because the screen is not backlit, I can read for hours without the eyestrain I get reading on a computer. Despite the complaints I'd read, I found it took me only a day to figure out how to handle it without inadvertently changing pages, and now it's second nature. (Hold it at the bottom, on the keyboard, not the sides - or read with the cover on - and put it to sleep whenever you put it down.)
I like the integrated dictionary, so I can quickly look up words I don't know and then get right back to reading. I like that I can carry around not just one book, but a dozen (currently) and a magazine and a newspaper, so I can read heavy or light depending on what I feel like tackling. I like that it always returns to the last page I was reading in whatever book I select - I can create my own bookmarks, but I've never had to. I like that the Whispernet connection to the Kindle Store (and the internet) requires no setup or maintenance, works just about everywhere I go, is fast, and is free.
Most of the criticisms I've read of the Kindle seem to be complaints about what it is not. It is not an efficient or attractive tool for web browsing. It does not have a color screen. It doesn't do email, or IM (at least not easily). It's a clumsy media player. In short, it's not a laptop computer. (One guy couldn't believe it didn't take pictures.)
Some people complain about the price of ebooks, but they're mostly around $10.00 - cheaper than almost any book I've purchaed in years - and I find that a fair price. I expect authors and publishers to make money on the books they sell. There are, of course, many ebooks available for free on the web.
I wish it supported a fixed-width font. I wish it was a little easier to reach the power and modem switches when I have the cover on. I wish it had been a little less expensive - and, for the price, they could have thrown in a $15 clip-on reading light and a $7 2-gigabyte SD card.
But I find it does what it is supposed to do exceedingly well - it encourages me to read.
CAN NOT FIND THIS PRODUCT ANYWHERE CHEAPER. i TAKE THIS OVER THE COUNTER MEDICINE DAILY. I COULD GET A PRESCRIPTION FOR IT BUT WHY IT IS BETTER PRICED HERE
I looked and researched for a long time before deciding on the Tab 2. For my purposes...email, searching the Internet, Facebook and the occasional photo, this suits me just fine. I also purchased a "for dummies" book to help me learn the finer points. I'm still in the learning curve but I was able to operate the tablet immediately. (And being 65, I don't have the skills of younger users) While I love the portability,this is a w i-fi only device!
This is an awesome resource for anyone in the microbiology / infectious disease discipline. As a clinical microbiology manager, this resource is invaluable in determining the etiological agent with a disease process. If there is one book that you can buy that would include a listing of all pathogens and the infectious disease they cause, with the appropriate antimicrobial used to specifically treat the etiologic agent, then this book is the one.
