New even lower price on Kindle

This is getting interesting. The Kindle with new competition from readers as Nook and the new iPad has gotten yet another price reduction. I cannot speak to the Nook, but for use as a book reader alone, I do not really think the Kindle has much competition from iPad at the current pricing. With the Kindle you get "free" 3G download of books and so, and the most important factor (except price) is probably that the Kindle is really lightweight. The new standard price on Kindle is $189, but if you click through the link, you can see that sometimes it is sold even lower.

Spare SD cards - on sale at Amazon

Not sure how long it will last (this posted June 2nd) but Amazon has Kingston 2 GB SD card for less than $4 shipped (free with prime, or super saver with more than $25 in the cart). I know, 2 GB and not fast, but for photo frames and as spare cards for point-and-shoot cameras, it good to have around.
