It’s ILMK’s 4th birthday!

It’s ILMK’s 4th birthday!

The first post in this blog was published on August 28th, 2009.

Last year*, I gave you lots of statistics on the birthday, and I’d like to do that today. However, I have some family things going on for the next few days, and that may make it difficult. I do expect to have some blogging access during this period (so if Amazon announces new hardware, I should still be able to let you know), but it’s going to mostly be my Fire and a Bluetooth keyboard…which is a bit limited compared to a desktop or laptop.

This limitation may particularly be true today. I may have collected the data on the 27th for the most part…what’s one day between friends? 😉

Bad guys, this does not mean our house is empty. 🙂 There isn’t anything bad going on with this, it’s just going to be some very focused time, so don’t worry, readers! 😉

  2. Zebras Says:

    Happy Birthday ILMK. Way to go Bufo. As always you have done another amazing year!

  3. Amy Says:

    Happy birthday, ILMK. Thank you for keeping me informed about all things kindle and more, and thank you for continuing to write. And congratulations on that amazing list of countries!

  4. Bailey Says:

    Happy 4th birthday ILMK! Here’s to another one next year! 🙂

    Happy Birthday — I do wonder who the 3 commenters from Vatican City are :D.

    Glad to see I’ve fallen to third in the commenter sweepstakes (:grin)

    As to Amazon announcement watching: I don’t think we’ll see anything until after Labor Day. Samsung is set to announce a smartwatch on Sept 4/5, and Apple is announcing the iPhone 5 on Sept 10 (a Tuesday). In order to not get lost in the noise I’m guessing Amazon will go after these two events.

    I’ll go out on a limb here and predict Sept 17-19 (Tue-Thurs) as likely dates.
