Windows XP Still Available (Sunday, Dec 7)

You can't buy a Kindle on Amazon right now, but apparently you can still buy Windows XP:

Windows XP still for sale on Amazon

I saw some boxed versions of XP at WalMart the other day too. I thought they were just leftovers from the backroom or something, but I guess it's still for sale.

Kindle (Saturday, Dec 6)

I wonder if an Amazon Kindle is going to be the big Christmas present this year? Looks like they're sold out until after December 25th:

Amazon Kindle is sold out

It'll be interesting to see how much they start going for on eBay.

My wife gave me a Kindle for my birthday, and I really like it. In fact, the more I use it the more I like it. Really a great device, especially with the wireless piece that lets you search for and download new books on demand.

Libby has a very good review of her Kindle that's definitely worth a read if you're thinking about getting one. After Christmas, of course...

Hey, Orson Scott Card wrote a new book in the Ender's Game series: Ender In Exile. How did I miss that?
