    I own an Amazon Kindle e-reader. On Amazon.com Skinit has decorative skins of 31 NFL Teams for the Kindle...that's right, 31. Guess which team isn't included! :ranting:

    Does anybody at these companies pay attention to what's going on the in sports world? The one team you would think companies would produce would be the World Champions, but do they? Nnoooooo. :ranting:

    Sorry, I just had to vent to some people who would at least understand the Pack passion.:mad::ranting:

    It would be remarkable if that many Packer fans owned a Kindle. It's not that popular, yet.

    I did a search for the manufacturer and found that the manufacturer has them even though Amazon doesn't. They may well have sold out. I wonder why Amazon didn't put some sort of a note to that effect on their site?

    Anecdotal: I have one, my brother (a Packer fan) has one, and I know another Packer fan who just got one.

    I don't have a skin though.

    I too am a Packer fan and I too have a Kindle, but I don't have a skin for mine either. I'm surprised they have them for the Bears and the Vikings since I can't imagine that too many of their fans actually know how to read. lol

    Could it be that the Packers are "privately" owned and that company doesn't have the rights to use the logo or images due to copyrights? It could be a legal issue.

    Good luck with your Kindle! I'm a lover of books, but I'm still old school and I love browsing my local library! :) Maybe one day I'll go all high tech and get a Kindle but books will never go out of style with me!

    Lol yeah, a year ago when you read a thread like that, you could bet it was about TT not signing FAs.

    I could be 100% wrong, but I believe the Packers' logo is actually owned by NFL Properties ... as are all the team's logos and jerseys and 'colors'.

    I just got a Kindle, LOVE it, now I can read my 4k books that I've got on my computer without using my laptop. I might look into this but I've got a case so it wouldn't do me a lot of good
