Kindlenfreude

Kindlenfreude - the unexpected joy when hearing bad news about the Kindle (thanks, Geoff!)

I admit it. It's been fun.

Hate to go all German on you, and it's cute and all, but "Kindlefreude" just means the joy of the Kindle. Afraid you'd have to go with Kindleschadenfreude.

Haha! I knew someone would get technical!

I thought about Kindleschadenfreude to get more authentic but it's such a mouthful already!

"Kindle" already has an "adversity, harm" connotation for me anyway.

In that case, the only way out is the way forward. I nominate Elektrokindlebuchmaschinenschnitzelfreude.
