Who says we're outdated?

According to Publisher's Weekly (or marketing facts), Amazon, unlike the rest of the world, has been making money. It would appear that the Kindle has been a lot more popular than expected (to the point where everyone's whispering about a second edition... Good thing I waited?). It would also appear that despite decades of people laughing at readers and telling them/us that books are outdated, the giant bookseller is kicking some economic butt.

...oh, what? The majority of the money came from media sales? Like, CDs and DVDs? Maybe a couple of books, though, right? And... oh. Electronics also brought in tons of money? Well. Books still contributed.

And so did I.
