Kindle Loudmouth – whatever will Jeff Bezos think of next?

I love my Kindle, but I have to say right now that I don’t think I’ll be getting the latest version. Called ‘Flare’, this new Kindle’s claim to fame is that it broadcasts the title of the book you’re reading… out loud!

Apparently this is meant to show the world how smart you are? Or something. Watch this video to see for yourself :

I particularly liked the bit about the guy and girl sitting at separate tables in a restaurant, checking out what the other is reading. Cute. Although I do wonder what message you’d be sending if your Kindle blurted out “Fifty Shades of Grey!”

Okay, that was my bit of fun for the day.

cheers
