The dangers of anecdotal research
So this guy is estimating that Amazon has sold half a million Kindles. I have seen just two people, one months ago and one today, using them in public. Considering how many hours I spend on a subway, bus, train or plane I thought I would see many more, and I do look. So where are they? Maybe it's a New York thing. Or maybe half a million isn't actually a lot.
