Nicely done!

Link: http://www.slipperybrick.com/2009/05/wood-amazon-kindling/

Update: this item is for sale now on eBay - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170331750580. Current bid is $61.

The witty writeup:

Say Hello to the Kindling, the incredible palm-sized wireless reading device.

Slim: Just 1/4th of an inch, thinner than most quesadillas.

Lightweight: At 4 ounces, lighter than a typical Zippo.

Wireless: Start reading anytime, anywhere; no monthly fees, service plans, or hunting for Wi-Fi hotspots

Incredible Display: Reads like real paper; now boasts 2 shades of gray for clear text

Uses no batteries or electricity; observe it for days without recharging.

No need to shut it off during air travel

Storage: Holds 900 bytes of information (about 120 words)

Made of plywood, a material often featured in Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Complete lack of functional buttons.

Also makes a handy cutting board.

It has a page from the Count of Monte Cristo laser-burned into there.

If they took orders for customizable love letters, or sonnets, they'd probably sell hundreds of these.
