There's a rash of stories today on how Kindles in all (most?) of the countries where it's available can now browse the web for free (it's enabled by the firmware update). I'm not sure why everyone is rehashing this; I first reported on this issue back on 17 May. No one seemed to care then that browsing was enabled with newly registered Kindles; I don't know why it's a big deal now.
I scooped everyone by nearly a month and no one noticed. Perhaps I need to work on getting people's attention.
