Whats sadder than a lost Amazon NASDAQ AMZN Kindle

In my world, the only thing sadder would be a lost Amazon Kindle e-book reader thats not missed!

Its been four weeks now since my Amazon Kindle turned up gone. This was the Kindle Id really been interested to use, paid the full $399 price, patiently waited for to arrive through Amazons multiple-week backlog, and then shared with my wife, a much more avid reader (of books anyway). We both were enjoying, for a few weeks anyway, at least some of the advantages of the state-of-the-art e-book reader. But obviously, not that much!

Despite kicking myself for almost assuredly leaving it in the airplane seat pocket on a Friday afternoon flight, the truly interesting observational take-away is that I didnt notice it was missing for a full 24 hours. I cant imagine being unaware that my iPhone or laptop (or keys, or briefcase, or other vital possession) wasnt with me for a whole day!

With the airline lost-and-found process now exhausted, my ambivalence towards the loss can clearly only be put behind me one way -- another new gadget some day soon! (But not a new Kindle -- tried it, kind of nice, but not worth buying another one, this generation anyway. Too many of the well-documented flaws -- each in itself minor but adding up to a mostly unpleasant and even at times annoying user experience.) And btw my indifference towards the loss made it into my sons friends Tumblr, so that was worth something right there!
