Maybe you could get Tim O\'Reilly on to discuss publishing books on the Kindle. I would also love to see O\'Reilly\'s Safari subscription service available on the Kindle so maybe Tim could discuss that also.

I listen to fiction from Audible but would love a way to access technical books in a portable format like the Kindle. (then I might actully buy one!)

I agree with Ihnatko in that Amazon would benefit if you iPhone users could purchase and read eBooks from the Kindle store, but I pray that Amazon doesn\'t get involved in a hardware deal with Apple. Sure the design and interface could be improved, but I\'d rather not see the Kindle price go up $50 to $100 for the privilege of having an Apple logo and being available in a variety of pretty colors.

Ooops, I left an extra \"you\" in there right before \"iPhone.\" Don\'t want it to look like I was pointing a finger at iPhone users.
