    This may not be directly Android related, but since Amazon is about to get into the Android game in a big way, and many of us use our tablets as eReaders, it seemed appropriate. Amazon recently reported that for the first time ever, Kindle eBooks are outselling actual print books. Apparently, since April 1st, for every 100 print books sold on Amazon their are 105 eBooks on Kindle sold. That's only a 5% gain, but it still points the way of the future. Here is Amazon's press release regarding this rather subtle but amazing glimpse into the future:

    Part of the reason that more internet traffic is actually paid for now than illegal. Between these items and Netflix streaming the 'Net is finally going legit!
