The Kindle 2 week - part 1: David Pouge and the final battle released last week Kindle 2, the new version of its e-book reader. Given Amazon's growing role in the book market and the influence Kindle has on this market, we decided to try and bring you a couple of interesting and hopefully unique perspectives about the new Kindle.

So for the next seven days, we will bring you each day a little Kindle piece. Hopefully by next Thursday we will have a better understanding of the big Kindle picture.

On the first part we invite you to get to watch this video, where David Pouge, the New York Times technology columnist, reviews the new Kindle 2 e-reader and wonders if e-books will make physical books obsolete. He gets an e-book and a paper book into an imaginary bottle you have to watch - it makes some very good points and it's also very funny. You're also welcome to read his column "The Kindle: Good Before, Better Now".
