Lots of blah-di-blah about the new Kindle wireless reading tablet (described in detail at the Amazon Kindle page). Happy as I am with dead tree media when it comes to novels, I was content to ignore the whole idea until I came across the story reframed with a new twist as part of today's copyright wars.
It turns out Kindle has some capacity to read books to you. Potentially handy for those with lazy eyeballs; assuming - of course - this feature actually works. But what to do with the audiobook rights? Neil Gaiman considers.
Quite sensible to my mind. Let that be an end to it.
