I just got myself a Kindle Paper White, years after monitoring the Kindle market since purchasing the very first generation Kindle. My medical school friend asked me, why? Why, with all the Mac, iPad, iPad minis... Kindle Paper White? It's simple, precisely because there are too many devices that all flash at me. It will be easy to go blind when all work, hobbies, productivities and learning are on devices, and some even have very small screens.
Wait a second, if I can use IFTTT or Ruby on Rails to turn my Pocket reads into RSS feeds or text-based blog entries. Problem solved! My kindle is now also my ereader for all. Thank you.
Okay, if you want to get one too, the second generation is 100 dollars +. You can get the Kindle classical too, but no touch screen : ( Then the possibility isn't so infinite. I still recommend the Paper White.
I thought my friend will use it for medical school textbooks, nope, she is going to be reading Wuxia Chinese Martial Art Novels like Jin Yong. Yeah... productivity, applied a bit ...
Then she worried that she wouldn't get it soon enough before her trip to San Francisco. I said, here's a link to Amazon Prime 30 Day Trial. It's free for 30 Days, and that means FREE two day shipping for all your holiday shoppings!! Productive and economical. In addition, Amazon Prime Instant Video = lots of free videos. Again, savings.

Here's my idea of Thanksgiving digital saving, save eyes, save money, efficiency, speed, and entertainment all in one. Don't forget, put your Netflix on pause if you get this Prime trail.
