What the Amazon Kindle Touch lacks in apps, it makes up for in services. While eReaders typically aren't given as much support as the Amazon Kindle Touch, it's very interesting to see what Amazon is doing to put its products ahead of the competition in addition to the huge drop in price. Not only did Amazon roll out the long-awaited public library loan program (allowing you to borrow eBooks from your local participating library for free), but it also introduced the world to the Kindle Owners' Lending Library, allowing its users to act as their own massive crowd-sourced library. You'll need to manage this with your computer via Amazon's webpage, but it's still a very cool feature.
