The Verge on the new Kindle Oasis released today:

"Amazon has been selling Kindles for 10 years now, but “waterproof” hasn’t appear on its list of incremental technological advancements until now. The company just announced a new version of its popular e-reader that builds on last year’s Kindle design and now has an IPX8 waterproof rating."

I have a Kindle Voyage, and it's one of my favorite products right now (the AirPods being another favorite of mine). The Kindle UI is slow and not amazing, but I put up with it because I love the display so much. It's wonderful to read in sunlight and the dark. And it's light. And the Kindle charge lasts forever. I read a lot, and I probably wouldn't if it wasn't for the Kindle.

Will I get the new Oasis? Probably, eventually. My Voyage still works perfectly fine. But the rainy season just started here in the Pacific NW, and I wonder if that's going to push me towards it now. Also, hottubs I guess?
