Nook Beats Kindle In Consumer Reports Ratings

For the first time ever, a Nook has beaten the Kindle in the Consumer Reports ratings.

Smart people in lab coats in Yonkers used their brains and scientific measuring equipment to determine that the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch e-ink Reader marginally outperforms its competitor in most every spec. Where it did not beat the Kindle, the two were equal, as was the case with battery life.

Bezos is probably not iconically laughing now.
