"The vision of the Internet as a vast digital wasteland isn’t correct. Everything is awesome and we have more stuff to read than we ever have in history. I think part of the answer comes with devices and interfaces: We need to create more devices without distractions, like Kindles."
Steal More Than Just The Shampoo: British Hotel Offers Kindles Instead of Bibles
Rather than offering a paper based edition of the bible, a hotel in Newcastle, U.K. is providing a Kindle e-reader in each room, with the bible preloaded onto each device.
Hotels nowadays will secure anything they can to prevent theft. You can’t move the lamps, you can’t unplug the TV, and you certainly can’t take any hangars. But I’ve got to say, if there’s going to be something in a hotel room that turns me to a life of crime, it would be The Holy Kindle. Starting today, all 148 rooms of Newcastle’s Hotel Indigo will have a Kindle. If this isn’t begging someone to steal from the hotel, I really can’t tell you what is.
