    The Send to Kindle Button

    This morning, I saw this on a blog.
    I wonder if it would be worth it.
    What are your thoughts on this?

    Sending web content to Kindle is now easier than ever.
    We are excited to announce the "Send to Kindle Button", a convenient new way to send content directly from a website to your Kindle. Customers can check out the Send to Kindle Button today on The Washington Post, TIME, and the popular blog Boing Boing.
    Have you ever encountered news, blogs, articles and other content on the web that you want to read but don't have time to do so immediately? The Send to Kindle Button lets you easily send that content to your Kindle to read later, at your convenience. Just send once and read everywhere on any of your Kindle devices or free Kindle reading apps for iPhone, iPad and Android phones or tablets. No more hunting around for that website or blog that caught your eye -- just open your Kindle and all the content you sent is right there. The Send to Kindle Button is also great for those who want to collect content from the web to use in work projects, school assignments, or hobbies.
    The Send to Kindle Button is part of a family of Send to Kindle applications that make it easy for customers to send personal documents and web content to read on their Kindle. To find out more about other Send to Kindle applications for PC, Mac, Chrome, and Firefox, please visit www.amazon.com/sendtokindle.
    If you happen to own a website and want to add the Send to Kindle Button, you can get it for free at www.amazon.com/gp/sendtokindle/developers/button or at WordPress › Send to Kindle WordPress Pluginsfor WordPress bloggers.

    Yes, I think that it is a really good idea. I have a Kindle and would like to send blog posts to my device where I wasn't inclined to commit to subscribing to all of the forthcoming blog posts. And the great content is archived on my device. Also, I think that it's possible to copy the data from the Kindle onto your PC via USB.

    Some blogs have epic posts where this feature would be great for saving them for future reference.

    I think it is hilarious that one of the comments on the Amazon blog story is "Why don't you have a Send to Kindle button on this blog?"

    Duh, you would think that they would want to demonstrate the button on the blog post that announces it.

    I may mess with it and put it on my blogs just to see what develops over the next month of so.
