Amazon & the Kindle

Couple of interesting articles I've seen lately about Amazon. From the June 22 issue of Time Magazine comes "Is Amazon Taking Over the Book Business?" by the very solid Time writers Lev Grossman and Andrea Sachs. It's just a fascinating look at a company that's remade themselves over the years and is dominating and now guiding an industry through their share of the online book sale market and introduction of the Kindle reader (and it's new iterations).

Not quite as wide ranging, but still an interesting product review is "Amazon's New Kindle DX Means Business" by Stephen Wildstrom in the June 22 BusinessWeek.

I wrote previously about written content online and the wireless reader market that Amazon practically created in this blog post... interesting topic.
