Me waaaant...!

So, being the complete *geek* growing up who adored ST:TNG beyond all reason (and seriously? Wesley was just the cutest thing EVAH to my pre-pubescent 9-year-old self!), it was only to be expected that when I first saw the Kindle, my mind immediately shrieked,

"Datapad!!! Awesome!!!"

Ahem!

Dude. I *want* this!! I really, really freaking *want* one!! :makes googoo eyes at ridiculously expensive tech toy:

Hmm. My economic stimulus check is due to be deposited in 2 weeks. I *could* buy it....

F-list, please be the voice of reason and tell me that I don't need to spend *$400* on a device that holds my entire library and is the width of a pencil while weighing 10oz! Tell me I don't need to have instant access to Wikipedia or the ability to find and buy any book that strikes my fancy within 60 seconds (I *really* don't need that one...I'll be broke for the rest of my life!). I totally *do not need this*!

DUDE. I am WITH you on the Kindle! The only thing keeping me from buying one immediately is that I heard they're working on a color version that will support illustrations, which I would much rather have. Doesn't keep me from salivating for it right now, though!

Now see, I don't know if I would want a color version of it. One of the best things about it is that the E-Ink looks just like paper. I really kind of like that, given that I stare at computer screens for, like, sixteen hours a day. I'm scared that a color version would make it too much like a computer monitor.

But I did have the thought that for my luck, right about the time I decide to buy it, two weeks later they come out advertising "Kindle v2.0", with tons of new features available. :-\
