In addition to announcing that the Kindle Paperwhite will see an update (which may in turn result in the first Paperwhite deal ever), Amazon unveiled its Kindle Matchbook service this week. Starting in October, shoppers will be able to get eBook copies of hard copy books they already own, either for a small fee or for completely free. It'll even retroactively apply to books that were purchased as far back as 1995 — when Amazon first started selling books.
In this brief — yet lively — video, our experts discuss the features of the service and ponder how it'll affect future purchases.
