Amazon.com CEO promotes Kindle reader in shareholder letter - Boston.com

Interesting times

In the letter, filed Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Bezos trumpeted the Kindle's advantage as a "purpose-built reading device," as opposed to smart phones and laptops, which he said encourage "information snacking" and short attention spans.

"We hope Kindle and its successors may gradually and incrementally move us over years into a world with longer spans of attention," he wrote.

Bezos also wrote that Amazon's vision for the Kindle is that it will make "every book ever printed in any language all available in less than 60 seconds."
