Just got a kindle 3G. Possibly one of the worst user interfaces I have ever had to use. Absolutely hideous. Reading on it is OK (but only OK), doing anything else is genuine nightmare. 5 years ago it would have seemed good, but after the iPad it is just inferior. Yes it is vastly lighter tahn the iPad which is good but it feels fragile and fundamentally rather cheap and throw-away. If you are travelling and don't want to carry a ton of books it will be useful and it is cheap enough that if it get lost or stolen it is not a huge issue. But a good user interface, no. Of course the fact that e-books are stupidly expensive and can't be shared does not help.

Sawing on the Strings - the short dobro solo is great. Tony Rice as always look like on eof the living dead. I notice that they all have long little fingers. Maybe I should work on my dobro playing - you don't need your little finger for that.

Here's some Jethro for good measure. (with Steve Goodman) Jethro has long little fingers too.

Add a comment

Paul Glasse - the man has freakishly long little fingers! His little finger appears to be as long as his ring finger. Mine is an inch shorter. (perhaps mine are freakishly short) Makes a big difference when playing the mandolin though. (Well, that is my excuse)
