      Reading e-ink displays is a LOT easier on the eyes, and I can never get the iPad off Ruth anyway

      This is a serious problem for you. By the time it arrived, you would have already sold it and bought something else!

      Haha I will cop that. BUT, I think in fairness not many people would be bothered waiting 12 months for a $32k car.

      So the kindle is pretty awesome if you're a book reader... but the only person I know that has one has a US credit card, so can have a US kindle store account.

      Will you be OK if you only have an Aus credit card? Do you know? Or are you just taking a punt?

      Yes, true, but...

      If you want access to the US Library, you need a US Amazon account.

      I understand this, in theory. But in practice I've never had a problem buying ANY book (physical or ebook) from Amazon some electronic stuff I get a "can't be shipped to your address" but no books

      The US ebook library started with a much wider range of publishers than the international one. I'm not sure if the international library has recovered this discrepancy or if you had an international account that you would necessarily know.

      Probably, this was the result of agreements between Amazon and publishers for the US market but not international market at Kindle launch.

      Maybe its all sorted now that the internet is killing Borders.

      Wow- outdoor pizza oven? I've heard that those gasmate ovens combined with a pizza stone come pretty close to a wood fired pizza.

      I was looking at the kenwood mixer, but ended up getting one of these:

      obviously not

      but I've used and played with the older an newer kindle and they seem quite closed and locked down

      obviously I'm wrong

      The Gasmate comes with a pizza stone. I've heard the same, but haven't fired it up yet...

      Kitchenaid vs Kenwood. Both good. Kitchenaid is quieter. Kenwood + Gasmate for about the same price as a Kitchenaid.

      Ka-Ching!
