Oh yes, mine weighs a ton now! It also seems to be getting fatter, like me!

Someone has proved it does put on weight, bit the difference is minuscule .

Let's start cruel rumours about Kindle like it suffers from radiation leakage and that it is really part of a conspiracy to have all the world's literature placed on one hard drive and then erased!

Willber G says:
The weight of all the data available on the internet is about the same as a large strawberry, apparently.

In reply to an earlier post on 25 Jun 2012 17:28:49 BDT
Or maybe a grape?

Sound like a back-of-an-envelope calculation of the rest mass of a whole bunch of electrons. Remember that most of the 'information' on the Internet is archived to hard disk, that is in little lumps of iron oxide, so it'll be rather heavier than that (even allowing for the fact that most data is transmitted in the form of light, which is mass-less).

There's quite a few hard disks in the world so the answer is most probably somewhere between a strawberry and a super-tanker.

I've not had my kindle for very long, so I've only got about 20 books on there. Consequently, I have the reverse problem - I have to anchor it to the coffee table with a piece of string tied round the kindle tethered to a heavy stone on the floor. Otherwise, it just floats up to the ceiling. Now I know why so many people download hundreds of freebies.

Well, I can't take credit (or blame) for the allusion, but here's a link to the article/video if you're interested:

Hi Willber, in all honesty ... I confess to no longer being able to differentiate between "allusions" and "illusions" suppose I'm "betwixed" blame the weather!

Willber, how are you diddling/paddling with your boat regarding this lovely, summer weather?

True! Beth (Creepy Little) did manage to break her Kindle cover with all her downloads... or maybe they were far too hot to handle? lol!

As yet I have not succumbed to the very dubious lure of that Grey book! However I do admit to having one or to quality bodice rippers on board!!

My Kindle has just reached its optimum weight so now for every book I read and send back to archive I must download another. Thats my excuse (as if I need one) anyway. ;~}

Spare a thought for the poor kindle librarians.

All those millions and millions of books that we archive - those librarians have to file them away again in their proper location and dust on a regular basis.

We have to download as many freebies as possible ...so the librarians don't have as many to dust ;-)

So if your Kindle gets heavier with each download, does that mean it has a soul?

If it does then the qualia of its raw experience must consist of the literature downloaded. I'm rather worried that I may have corrupted mine - what can I do with an evil Kindle?
