Horse N. Buggy

I'd advise people to be wary of this product. I'm not saying that it is bad, but you need to be aware of its limitations. As I understand, there are significant DRM restrictions, meaning that you cannot easily transfer e-books you already own to the device, nor can you create your own content for it. It is also worth mentioning that the "subscription" fee for newspapers, magazines and blogs does not go back to the content provider. I believe that fee is paid to the company that transforms the content into Kindle format. So if a person wanted to read this blog on their new Kindle, NGT wouldn't benefit from the subscription fee. This is probably a good first product, but the add-on fees and needless restrictions need to be reconsidered.
