Bezos’ Jon Stewart Visit Kindles Laughter

The best thing about the launch of Amazon’s shiny new Kindle was watching Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos laugh his fool head off on the Jon Stewart Show last night. If you missed it, you must see it. And, fortunately, Gawker makes that possible here as well as in a snarky piece on the same page and quoted below:
Jeff Bezos turned up on the Daily Show couch to promote Amazon.com's newest Kindle e-book reader. And as this clip shows, he laughed, and laughed, and laughed. Why wouldn't he?

Host Jon Stewart seemed discomfited by his guest’s wild, table-slapping howls. But any tech reporter who's interviewed Bezos knows that the Amazon.com’s CEO hooting laughter is his most distinctive personal quality, the hook of every headline.
I don’t agree: I didn’t think Stewart seemed at all discomfited. Let’s face it: Stewart is a comedian. He likes making people laugh. And Bezos really did laugh.

That’s all the time I feel like spending writing about the new Kindle right now. And why? I’m just sick of hearing about it. In case you’re not, you can get the 4-1-1 here and here and here.

I've dropped my Kindle a few times already (not on purpose of course) and it seems to be working without a hitch; so they're durable at least
