Introducing the Kindle Flare August 1, 2014 – Posted in: Books and Technology, Content – Tags: , ,


The Onion has the scoop on Amazon’s latest release, the “Kindle Flare,” a new tablet that will “loudly and repeatedly” announces the title of the book you’re reading.

A spokesperson for Amazon says “the Kindle Flare’s repetitive shouting will appeal to fans of print, who miss the ability to display a book’s cover to strangers.”

It also offers the revolutionary new technology “auto-explain” for the user who has a little shame about their reading choice. “Auto-explain” offers a rationalization for the book you’re reading while also boasting about a high-brow title that you also like.

God bless the Onion.
