re: Kindle Fire: Too Small, Too Large?
@Bellingman is right. I've been using a Playbook for months, and just bought a Fire for my wife. For media consumption, particularly reading in bed, the 10" form factor is too big and heavy. The e-ink readers have great battery life and are significantly lighter, but they are pretty much unitaskers. For someone who is primarily a reader but wants significant additional capability, the 7" tablet is a great size and now only a little more expensive than a dedicated e-reader. If you goal is primarily to browse the web I personally would rather have a netbook, but the 10" tablet is fine if you seldom actually type anything.
The bigger problem with the article, though, is lack of balance. You can find an expert who says anything, and I'm guessing Ed found one who agrees with his opinion and let his enthusiasm get away from him, but it is still a terribly biased article.
