Macbook Air vs Kindle?

Yesterday at MacWorld, Steve Jobs debuted the Air, a superslim laptop that weighs maybe 3 pounds. I’ve been saying this for a while, but I’ll say it again – dedicated ebook readers will soon be outstripped by light/thin laptops that have far more functionality than the readers do. I think investing in standalone ebook readers, as opposed to multi-functional machines like iPhones and laptops, is needless. Reading’s not enough – you want to be able to share what you’re reading with people. And while the Air certainly has its problems, it’s a sign of things to come – I’ll take Jobs’s design and know that he’s going to fix storage and port problems rather than relying on Jeff Bezos to come up with a Kindle that can send email.
