Interesting things: an article about netbooks and an article about the Kindle

Wired Magazine has a fascinating piece about the rise of the netbook:

And Richard Cobbett’s posted a great piece about the Kindle and ebooks in general:

I’m aware that there are some people who will happily read a novel on the iPhone. These people are crazy.
