By the way I love your podcasts! You do a great job and a service to the ebook community. By the way the other day I purchased a Nook but didn’t open it. After much soul searching and forum reading (and after placing my iPad order) I took the Nook back. Oh boy the manager was NOT happy. Oh well :-) at least I hadn’t opened it.

It confirms my own policy of keeping my politics out of my coverage of the Kindle and eBooks, thanks to a correction I received from a listener about a year ago. The fact is that readers of eBooks come from all points of the spectrum, and my goal is to be a resource to all, no matter what our differences on other issues.

Seems like an unwarrented assertion/slander (you pick) since public records (http://www.newsmeat.com/billionaire_political_donations/Jeff_Bezos.php) show Bezos giving more to Democrats than Republicans. The Amazon PAC likewise gives more to Democrats (though more even between the two).

There is a difference between Fox, MSNBC, and CNN. At least we know where Fox is coming from where MSNBC and CNN pretend to be fair and balanced.
