A corporation's annual report is one of perhaps their most popular public documents. Annual reports include the year's financial statements in the form of a balance sheet, income statement, auditor's report and a detailed outline of the companies operations for the past year. The annual report is only required by companies who have gone public with their stock. Stockholders are entitled to know how the company has done in the past year so that they can make wise investment decisions.
The importance of the annual report is huge. Not only does it provide information to current stockholders, but because the annual report is available to the public, anyone who wishes can look into the financial well-being of your company.

And at the moment, I'm impressed.
For those of you who don't know, the Kindle is an electronic book, enabling you to download books and read them on an easily-read screen.

And, while it's not yet perfected, it delivers on the above.
Size: 7.5" high, 5.25" wide, and just 0.5" thick.
Screen size: 4.75" x 3.5" which may seem small, but since you can easily adjust type size, it really doesn't matter. The screen is white with black print, and is specifically designed so that you can read it even under the bright glaze of sunlight. However, this also means that you need light to read, so if you're reading in bed, you'll still need a light to see the page, just like a normal book.Continue reading "Kindle Review"
