Dear Jeff… The problems with technology reviews…

So the Kindle has been out a couple of weeks and it’s already a failure.  Scoble has a long list of things that he wants to change on his blog; Dear Jeff Bezos (one-week Kindle review) « Scobleizer — Tech geek blogger.And even Slate has had a go; Can Amazon save the e-book? – By Harry McCracken – Slate Magazine Before I go any further I need to point out that Scble’s idea of a social network is madness. Until everyone has one of these things, what is the point? It would just point out to everyone what a small market share of reading they have. This was the same issue that the Zune sharing functions have.However, there is a bigger issue here. All these reviews are from people that are interested in the technology not books. The EVDO functionality is magic to the average user, they can buy a book anywhere at anytime and they never sign a service contract. That is a real innovation, an innovation more important than the size of the Previous Page button!Roll on version two.
