New city, new apartment, new school, new Kindle?

Exciting news (at least in my opinion)! Darden has been selected to pilot Amazon's Kindle DX to access textbooks, cases, etc.! See the BusinessWeek article, the Darden announcement, and the FAQs. There's not much information available yet about how this may impact me and my classmates, but I am super excited and already trying to figure out how I can volunteer myself to test it out. I hate, hate, hate dragging around copious amounts of papers and books and other school-related paraphernalia, so if this means that I might have even one less thing in my ginormous shoulder bag, I'm all for it. Plus, it's definitely more green than printing a bunch of stuff out all of the time. And possibly cheaper? I guess we'll see. More information to follow, I hope...
