Bezos says Hemingway doesn't need embedded video

That's why there's no video or audio capability for the new super cheap Kindle, according to Jeff Bezos who runs/is Amazon.com. Of course, there IS embeddable video and audio on the Kindle app for the iPad. So maybe Hemingway needs it there?

I think one of two things is happening here:

1. An incongruity has been discovered in the literary scholarship of Jeff Bezos.

2. Dude's making excuses for the Kindle device. He should just say, "We didn't put as many features in it because we wanted to sell it cheaper so more people would buy them and we'd sell more books because WE ARE A BOOK STORE."

By the way, I used to work at Amazon. One time I was at a party and Jeff Bezos came up to me and put a grass skirt on me. I let him do that because he was wearing one too and also I was afraid of him.
