Let’s face it, colleges and the publishers are making a killing selling books to college students. Plus by the time you get done lugging around 50lbs of paper for 4 year you need back and neck surgery to correct your misaligned spine. So what am I getting at? Why hasn’t Amazon already gotten into this market and some how subsidized the cost of the kindle through a subscription based system? Perhaps it’s those money sucking colleges – have they blocked blackballed Amazon? Yes, the same ones that willingly provide your information to credit card companies as if you weren’t in enough debt from school loans. No official details as of yet, but one analyst claims to have gotten the word from Amazon’s management team that they’re building a stripped down version of the Kindle e-book reader.
