Scobelizing the Kindle

From Robert Scoble - ouch:

1. No ability to buy paper goods from Amazon through Kindle.
2. Usability sucks. They didn?t think about how people would hold this device.
3. UI sucks. Menus? Did they hire some out-of-work Microsoft employees?
4. No ability to send electronic goods to anyone else. I know Mike Arrington has one. I wanted to send him a gift through this of Alan Greenspan?s new book. I couldn?t. That?s lame.
5. No social network. Why don?t I have a list of all my friends who also have Kindles and let them see what I?m reading?
6. No touch screen. The iPhone has taught everyone that I?ve shown this to that screens are meant to be touched. Yet we?re stuck with a silly navigation system because the screen isn?t touchable.

And this curmudgeonly observation:

"Whoever designed this should be fired and the team should start over."
