(Still) my favorite Amazon Kindle advertisement

favicon The holiday season is here, which means your TV will likely be inundated with commercials prompting you to buy the latest gadgets.

Amazon no doubt will encourage you to buy Kindle Fire HD or the Kindle Paperwhite. But I am not moved (too much). My heart still goes out for the Kindle Keyboard: no fancy videos or pictures, built-in text-to-speech, and a full-on keyboard for highlights and annotations.

Plus, the Kindle Keyboard had a really good commercial for the holidays:

This commercial aired three years ago, when the Kindle Keyboard was the latest version, and when the Kindle Fire didn’t exist yet. Even though the ad is old, it understands what happens when we connect a kid’s curiosity to the world of books. favicon
