There's Théodore Rousseau, the French Barbizon landscape artist.
Henri Rousseau, a self-taught artist known for his vibrant dreamscapes.
And Jean-Jacques Rousseau, a philosopher and writer whose works and theories influenced 18th and 19th century art.
Additionally, I'm super intrigued by the Amazon Kindle and I can see how it would be really cool to have.
However, like any new technology, I'll definitely be waiting for version 2.0, or whatever. Not only because I don't have $400 to spare right now, but also because I can see some features that I would expect to find and aren't yet available. A stylus or trackpad, for one. Color capability (though that might be a while down the road...I mean, iPods were black and white for several years) for highlighting and image purposes. The ability to transfer the books purchased to a computer (preferably in .pdf format).
I think the interface is extremely advanced, but possibly less impressive when viewed next to palmtop computers, which can do all that and more. I do hope this thing takes off, though. It's a really brilliant invention.
