Since Woot has been acquired by Amazon, I doubt I will be making any more purchases. Amazon has a bad habit of charging your credit card without having the product. I once waited over six weeks for an order. I have since stopped buying anything from Amazon. Amazon could at least acknowledge that the product is out of stock.

Thanks to Woot's product statistics at the end of the day, and thanks to Amazon's reluctance to release Kindle sales figures, at midnight we will all learn, for the first time ever, how many Kindles are sold (at least to Wooters for $149).

Can some one explain to me this merger?
1. Woot is making woot load of money
2. Amazon wants to get in on the woot action.
3. Amazon acquires Woot.
4. Amazon gets revenue percentage from Woot?
5. What benefit is there to Woot?

I don't see the benefit of the merger from Woot's perspective..... then again I wasn't a finance major and I'm bad with money.....keep spending it on crap from this online store that sells one crappy item per day.....
Oh wait....

Is Woot going to keep their name in this marriage? I think they should. Wootazon or the Woot-Amazon family doesn't have the same ring to it.

We're still the same ol' woot, but we had the opportunity to bring you a smokin' deal on a Kindle, so we did.

Amazon is definitely on a push to sell out their remaining stock of Kindles before the new lower end one comes out (In August is the rumors).

If the new low end one does come out, it doesn't seem like its getting a touch screen since this new DX one doesn't have one. Kinda sad about that one but i'm glad they kept and improved on the eInk display.

Mine will cost just 129.99, because I won a $20 bet that Woot would offer a Kindle tonight! Sometimes it pays to be Captain Obvious, right Woot?

I love my kindles. I have a first gen in this size, so admit to being SERIOUSLY tempted to upgrade the smaller size.

Re Comics: Check around, I've not seen an comics or graphic novels available for the kindle, but that doesn't say much, not something I've ever looked for either.

I <3 mine, though. Even with libraries and sharing books, my first kindle paid for itself in 6 months.

I read a lot.

I do like Barnes & Noble's comparison:
http://www.barnesandnoble.com/nook/compare/?cds2Pid=30197
It's mostly fair, though lists specific highlights and specifications, of course. But you're trading Sudoku and more open formats for Text-to-Speech.

Does anybody know if the Kindle will read whatever format Google Editions will be putting out? Will they do PDF?

That's the larger version (DX)

This is still the latest of the ones that are the size of a paperback book.

I've had a Kindle v.1 since they came out, as does my hub, and we love the darned things.

Now only if Apple had bought Woot, we'd have an iPad at a discount.

I just got one for father's day- my son paid $259, then he got the $70 back. I wonder if he can get the $40 back...

This thing is great but pdf file display isn't the best. The pan function is too blocky so in order to read some multicolumn text pdf files you have to zoom into first column, read it, then zoom out and zoom in on second column to read it. If you try to just pan over to read the second column of text some will be cut off. This should be an easy firmware fix, so I expect they will fix it eventually.

You're crazy. That never happened. I buy 3x week & never had a single issue as you described. Talk about sabotage!

This is a fantastic deal.

I got the Sony a couple weeks ago, and even though I hate Sony, I'm not sorry about it.

I've got enough wireless radiation bouncing around my house, and all I want to do is to read my collection of PDFs I've downloaded and web essays and articles I don't want to sit in front of a screen and read.

I've got a bookshelf full of books, I'm not keen on buying anymore. And I think the paper and ink format is preferable if you're actually paying for it
