Kindle Delivers Again.

There I was sitting in my bedroom on this particular night watching late night television when on came this particular infomercial. Normally when this happen, I just click to another channel. This time, however, I did not. Instead, I sat and  listened as the host talked about his book.

“This book has everything you need to get you out of debt and start your life all over again,” he said. “Oh yea?” I thought to myself, “you’re just saying that to make some money.”

But the thing that caught my eye were the two really beautiful ladies sitting on either side of him asking all kinds of questions for which he had some rather interesing answers. Of course, I know it’s all choreographed, but that which was being said was enough arouse my curiosity.

He went on and on and on…(yea, Kevin Turdeau – that’s his name and the book is – Debt Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About) about how this amazing book had the solution to my credit problem….and all I had to do was call the 1-800-number flashing across the screen to order. The cost – 24 plus bucks.

Okay, so my curiosity got the better of me and I wanted to see what was in the darn book…so I bit.

Well, not quite yet, there was one problem. I did not want to pay the $24 plus for it. I wanted it for less.

So, I grabbed my kindle, “fired it up” and did a quick searched at the store to see if it was available…and what do you know? it was there for 9.99.  I clicked over and read some reviews to see what others had to say about it. As expected, some were positive others negative.

I figured the negative ones were probably written by disgruntled creditors who felt that there money making machine was under attack.

The positive ones seemed more genuine, but I wanted to see for myself. I  downloaded a free sample and read it all in one sitting. In the end, my curiosity increased. 

I hesitated…”what could I lose?”  – $9.99. What’s the solution? Buy it, read it quickly, and if it did not deliver, get a refund.

So,  “click” I bought  and the book was on my Kindle in less than a minute. I started reading right away.

Some of the information in the book, I already knew, but I also found some unfamiliar and pretty useful gems.  As quick as I found them, I acted on them.

My view of the credit system was confirmed: it’s all a game designed to screw the consumer out of his/her money and enslave them into lifelong repayment plan.

I am re-reading now at a slower pace. My goal? to become thoroughly acquainted with the content.

The point I want to make, though, is that Kindle  has delivered  for me once again. I did not have to call  (because I did not want to), nor did I have to wait, drive to a store, or search online to purchase the book. I had it right there at my fingertips at a bargain price in the middle of the night.

My curiosity was immideately satisfied and my informational need met. Should such another situation arise, I will take advantage of it all over again.

Kindle Content in Spanish?

Today one of my spanish friends picked up my Kindle, looked at it and said, “I get one,” I asked her, “did you order it yet?” she responded, “no.” “Well,” I said, “you will have to do it quickly, if you plan to get it for the holidays.” “Do they come in Spanish?” she asked. “Hmmm,” I responded, “I do not know, but I’ll to find out.” “Please,” she said, “that would be nice.”

At the end of the conversation, I called Amazon.com’s Kindle support. A young man answered the phone and said there was no such content.

“What I will do is make a note of it and pass it on to the engineers, ” he said. “It might be something they may want to take a closer look at.” I acknowledged, and hung up.

What an awsome idea? Kindle becoming a multi-cultural reading device. It would be even nicer if it did so on version 2.

But how could language (not just spanish) be added to Kindle in a quick efficient manner?

Well one possibility could be to convert English content to Spanish (or another language) as long as there is no context issue. If there is, then another possibility could be to tap into the writings of Hispanic authors (or other non-english authors) by getting them to publish their writing on Kindle, then market it to the appropriate community.

This may be quite a bit of work, but either way, the idea of having a language oriented kindle, in my mind, is pretty cool. However, before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s just wait and see what Amazon does.

Kindle’s Sold Out Again

It’s the holiday season again…and guess what, Kindle makes the perfect holiday gift. Today, I was in my office reading on my kindle when a couple co-workers walked in. “What’s that?” one of them asked. “It’s the amazon Kindle ,” I replied. “You’ve never heard about it?” “No,” she responded. “What do you do it it?” At this point I went into my little pitch and gave a few demonstrations along the way…and guess what? she was sold.

“This is the perfect christmas gift for my father,” she said, I am going to get one…”How much does it cost?” “359,” I replied. “Okay,” she responded. “Do you know where to get it?” I asked, “Yes,” she replied, “Amazon.com.” “You are right,” I responded, “but if you go here (I gave her my blog address) you will get it faster…plus you will get a lot of additional information about it so that you can make an informed decision.” I wrote the blog address on paper, gave it to her, She took it and was on her way.

At the end of the conversation, the other co-worker who was standing by listening to the converstation came over and ask me for the same blog address. She too plan to get one for herself…Now whether or not they follow through and get it, is another story. But the point is..Kindle is “hot” at this time of the year. Why? Because it makes the perfect gift.

If you don’t believe me, hop over to Amazon.com and you will see the following notice:

“Availability: Due to heavy customer demand, Kindle is sold out. Please ORDER KINDLE NOW to reserve your place in line. We prioritize orders on a first come, first served basis. This item will arrive after December 24. Note that Kindles cannot currently be sold or shipped to customers living outside of the U.S. ”

Can you believe it…and I thought that “everyone” knew about Kindle…apparently not. Well I guess, It’s a great time to walk around and read on the Kindle so that others can see me. Who knows, someone may just be interested in finding out more about it.
