Against the brain

This week’s Macworld column welcomes the Amazon Kindle Fire and wonders what’s in the water over on Wall Street because some of those guys are goofy.

  • M. Park Hunter:

    The pundits seem to think that maybe the secret of developing an iPad killer is to make a cheaper device with a smaller screen. I think maybe Apple already has that market covered. Why would I pay $200 for a Kindle Fire, when for the price of a couple more movie tickets I can buy an iPod Touch?

    Maybe these nutso writers should walk through the local middle school, where all the kids that can’t afford iPads seem to have iPods or iPhones that pretty much do all the same cool tablet-y things, just on a smaller screen and for less money.
