Why is everyone reporting on last month’s Kindle browsing story?

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.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
