While Judie, Larry and I were ordering our iPads earlier today, Carly was watching Amazon.com. She was curious what, if anything, Amazon might do in response to the iPad’s pre-order going live. This was especially the case since it turns out the iPad does something awesome for eBooks.
Turn it from portrait to landscape and… bam… you get two facing pages- just like the “dead tree edition”.
Carly’s comment, “I sure hope this puts a fire under Amazon for the next Kindle.”
Well that got me thinking. I did some research and… discovered that Amazon.com got an order shortly after the iPad went online from none other than the big guy himself.
