5 things that would be different if the Kindle were Apple's

You can tell right away that the Kindle is neither pretty nor uncontroversial, but here’s a guess at what would have happened if it was designed by Apple.

It would:

  1. …have style.
  2. …come in five different colors, one randomly more expensive than the others.
  3. …switch to landscape mode and zoom to page width automatically when rotated.
  4. …use “EDGE”:Wikipedia:Enhanced_Data_Rates_for_GSM_Evolution instead of EV-DO because, you know, battery life would be an issue.
  5. …have been “jailbroken” already to let an infinitesimally minuscule percentage of teenage pundits read non-“DRMed”:Wikipedia:Digital_rights_management manga on it. Or something.
