Join PC World editors Robert Strohmeyer, Mark Sullivan, Tim Moynihan, Melissa Perenson as they bring you the 18th episode of the PC World Podcast. This week, they discuss the pros and cons of Kindle 2, and whether or not it’s a worthwhile decision for Kindle 1 owners to fork out $359 for the upgrade.
