Free Kindle (with purchase of $30,000 master’s degree)!

As part of a pilot project with Amazon, the UW Computer Science and Engineering department will give every incoming graduate student a free Kindle DX and Kindle-fied course materials. It’s all part of Amazon experimenting with the idea of making the Kindle into a textbook delivery device, and the University of Washington is among seven schools participating in the pilot project.

No word on exactly how much this will cost the university. The piece also mentions incoming Foster School students will also get Kindles.
