Streamlined laptops.  Ultra-slim cell-phones.  Thin-as-licorice iPods.  And now the ultra-sleek Kindle.  Is it just me, or is it freaky how much all of these things (admittedly, some of which I like) resemble credit cards?  So much power in such a thin case?  Perhaps their makers hope we will think more warmly of credit cards than we might otherwise if, say, we associate credit-card-style toys with the Skype that keeps us in contact with our long-distance loved ones and in touch with the best modern fiction and music?  Something seems a little eerie about the rise of cred-card-looking toys and credit card use in America.  Freaky.
