A Reasonable Decent Use for Kindle tablets :-)
As reports have hit the airwaves on Kindle Tablets not selling (and layoffs at Amazon), it is kind of cool to see this as the platform continues to have somewhat of a traction.    The long-term viability is still of concern, though--as sales lag.  When mighty Apple is suffering, what about the 2nd tier players?
