    Kindle Fire is perhaps one of the most interesting, to say the least, Kindles out there; and truthfully I can’t wait to get my feet wet on it. But I somehow agree with you. iPad has become a benchmark even for huge companies, and though there’s really nothing wrong if they want to draw “inspiration” from it, their products end up lacking creativity, ingenuity, and usability in the end. They can’t seem to answer the most basic question: What’s in it for me?

    It’s funny about how you pointed out that Bezzos was trying to emulate Steve Jobs. Seriously, while I want to try out Kindle Fire, I don’t see it being able to defeat the mighty iPad.

    I hope I’m wrong but it might be a watered down iPad. It would be better for companies to cater to a niche of users rather than try to emulate Apple.
