The iPad has suddenly made the Kindle appear long in the tooth, but I had no idea just how antiquated the Kindle actually was. Yesterday, I was searching for books by George Lakoff, a UC Berkeley linguist with some intriguing yet controversial ideas on the differences between how liberals and conservatives think. This is one of the results I found:
I knew the Kindle was old, but holy crap! I think it’s about time for an upgrade, Amazon!
I guess the only books you could read on it back then were steampunk novels.
And if George Lakoff published this back in 1905, why are the Democrats still losing elections? It’s the Republicans who have all the 100-year-old ideas.
Seriously, folks. We’re ten years past Y2K. How the hell can anyone be so incompetent that they’re still making this blunder? Especially on a product that didn’t even exist ten years ago?
For those of you wondering where the articles about fundies have been lately, they haven’t gone away completely. I was hoping to write a Fundie Research Council article last night, but time worked against me. I’ll try to get that done tonight. From tonight onward, whenever you think of gonorrhea, you’ll think of Tony Perkins.
