Today saw the introduction of the abominable Kindle 2.
No ePub. And no SD card slot!
Yet the Twittersphere was in orgasms with tweet after tweet mentioning immediate pre-ordering.
And then there was this ignominious tweet:
Yeah, how about that, Sony?
It was waaaay back on November 15th that I blogged about the Sony Publisher Portal.
I recommended that to several small press print publishers.
Not a single one of them has heard back from Sony.
What’s up with that, Sony?
While eager small presses — not to mention direct-publishing writers — wait for your train to enter the station, you lot are diddling around with fake mannequins to introduce the VAIO P flawed non-netbook netbook. A move that is eerily reminiscent of the decadent and degrading “human statues” seen in a lavish and inappropriate party in the documentary classic, Roger & Me.
Sony is bleeding out due to the economy, with massive budget cuts and layoffs.
