Yesterday we had a post up looking at the Amazon Kindle announcement including a look at the valuation disparity between newly competitive Amazon and Apple. We have a bunch more links that don’t fit in the daily linkfest. Amazon is down today, but it isn’t clear how much of that reaction is due to the Kindle news or the pullback in momentum names.
