If you’re older than 50, you’re probably not as tech savvy as the younger generations, and may perhaps even feel a little overwhelmed by all the gadgetry that surrounds you today. But don’t let that put you off on checking out one gadget, the Amazon Kindle. The Kindle 3 is an e-book reader that currently dominates the market for portable, lightweight e-readers.

It’s as easy to use as opening a hard-copy book, but unlike a book, it can be loaded with hundreds of books to read at your leisure.
