Kindle tweets!

Can you believe it? You can actually tweet from your amazon Kindle. You don’t have to sit in front of a computer or pay for cellphone data.

To me, that’s really cool! For some reason, my cellphone service provider, AT&T, don’t allow me to tweet from my cellphone..something I really don’t understand seeing that I can send out an unlimited number of text messages to other cellphones.

…plus I don’t always have the time to sit in front of my PC or laptop to get into my twitter account. So, when I discovered that I could tweet from my Amazon Kindle, it was a welcome relief for me.

I mean, you can set up your twitter account to send out  automated feeds to your followers, but it is so animated… that it sucks! It is missing that personal element which human beings respond to.

People need to know that there is a real person on the other end of a tweet!

Being able to tweet from my kindle allows me to do that. Every now and then while in the middle of a reading, I can hop over to my twitter account and send out a tweet. Now that’s kool!

Even more ‘kool’ is the fact that  I don’t have to pay for wireless  or internet service, plus I can log in to my twitter from anywhere as long as I am in a wireless coverage area.

Here’s a simple video guide showing how it’s done…

Video: Enhancing Your Kindle Experience!

Here’s a practical example of how you can easily change the font, have the device read to you,  access your content homepage, define a word in middle of a reading, delete content from your Amazon Kindle and still maintain access, and retrieve your stored content from Amazon.com.

The steps are relatively simply and easy to follow. If you are “sitting on the fence” wondering if you should get an Amazon Kindle, hopefully this video will help you decide.

MyTouch 3G Launch Imminent!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

T-Mobile’s new Android-based Google phone hits the market August 5th…and  is poised to  offer a slew of features and accessories somewhat similar to that of the iPhone and the Palm Pre.

Plastic Logic eReader – Kindle2, Kindle DX May Have Some Real Competiton After All!

Here’s an ereader Plastic Logic’s  planning to launch…notice they say it is designed for business reading. Hmmm!


Vodpod videos no longer available.

For more info, go to the Plasticlogic.com

But that’s not all.  What make this device even more interesting is that just like the Amazon kindle, it is set to have a  wireless connection courtesy of AT&T. Wow!

Now rumorville has it that AT&T planned to announce soon  that it will support an electronic book reading device due early next year from Plastic Logic.

But as we see in video, the device displayed is for business reading. Could this mean that there is a one-two punch in the works? The device in the video similar to the Kindle DX…and another device similar to Kindle 2 dedicated to just recreational reading?

If this is the case, then we will have a total replica of the Kindle 2,  Kindle Dx phenomenon.

Well! This looks like real competition. Plastic Logic, At&T, and Barnes & Nobles seem to get it!  This is really really interesting. Let’s see how Amazon respond.

Kindle 2, Kindle DX look out!

Latest Kindle News!

Do you really own those Kindles Store ebooks on your Amazon Kindle?
Recently the publisher of George Orwell’s Animal Farm and 1984 decided to withdraw their  electronic version of the book from the  Amazon Kindle.

So,  without asking any questions, Amazon wirelessly deleted the book from all Kindles and refunded purchase money to would be owners.

That’s a big problem!

The thing with these Kindle  store ebooks that you buy is you don’t have that choice in terms of storage.

Every single one that you buy, is backed-up on the Amazon.com server.  That’s just like buying a car from someone, store it in their garage, give them the keys, and tell them to drive whenever they want.

Heck! they can even sell it if they want. Just give you a refund to cover their ass.

If amazon can wirelessly delete a book that you bought at anytime  and give you a refund, then in my opinion, it’s not really your book.

If it’s yours then you should have full control over it…to keep it as long as you want, sell it if you want,  and even loan it out if you want.

But that’s not the case with the Amazon Kindle. When you buy a book, you can’t loan it out, share it, nor store it on your own storage device.  Now we find out Amazon can even take it back. Wow!

Therein lies the reason why the darn thing don’t come with a SD slot.

But, it does make sense. How else can they ensure that they make money off the books and that Kindle owners don’t just copy from others?

Barnes and Noble, the largest bookstore chain, launches its own ebook store
This new eBook store will allow customers to download titles to mobile devices, including Apple’s iPhone, Research in Motion’s Blackberry, PCs, and Macs.

The company also is partnering with Plastic Logic to offer a  8.5inc x 11-inch electronic reader that can wirelessly download choices from more than 700,000 titles early next year.

Who is surprised? Not me. This was expected. But don’t think that the Amazon Kindle is going to roll over and die.

In fact, it all sounds good, but it is left to be seen what this up and coming electronic reader has to offer. I have a kindle and I love it. Barnes and Nobles is going to have to come up with a stellar device to get Amazon customers to switch.

Before we talk too fast, let’s just wait and see what happens.

One thing, though, this is good for the ebook reader market. We may even see more price drop soon. What do you think?

Latest Amazon Kindle Developments!

Kindle to the UK!
According to Crunch Gear, Amazon is currently working on a deal to get kindle to the UK before Christmas!

Wow! If there is any truth in this story, it is about time. I was wondering how long they were going to take to get this device on the international scene…considering the fact that many of our readers are asking the same question.

Apparently the civilized “world” has heard about this device and wants to be a part of the revolution…and if Amazon don’t move quickly enough, then someone else will.

Oh by the way, where are the Chinese? They usually clone “everything.” No Kindle clones yet? he he! Who knows, there may just be one in the works.
Oh well! I guess we will just have to keep our ears open to this UK Kindle development.

If this works out, then hopefully it willl open up the flood gates for Kindle to spread its wings on the international scene.

Law Suit for Kindle cracks!
According to the Seattle Times, there is a pending law suit against Amazons for cracks on customer Kindles. Wow! Is that possible? I may as well crack mine and follow suit…he he!

The latest is that Amazon is offering replacement Kindles! This should be enough to settle it, right?

Well, we will just have to wait and see what the real motive is. Considering that Amazon is offering such a simple solution. It would be interesting to see how the judge rule on this one should it end up in court.

If someone can sue you for a “crack on a Kindle” and win, then they probably can sue you for for just about anything. You know what? This may sound sadistic, but I want it to go to court just to see what happens! This should be interesting.

Proposal the put a Kindle in each of the 56 million k-12 students backpacks!
This comes via the Christian Science Monitor. I thought they said the country was in a deep recession. If they really think this will improve education, they better think again.

Or maybe they are planning to include video games, Youtube, Myspace, and others on the darn thing to keep the children’s attention. I guess that will get them to read more!

They don’t even read the damn books you give them for free! They end up losing them by the end of the school year anyways and they don’t give a damn. After all, why should they? they don’t have to pay for it! It’s free!

Now they are going to get a free $299 electronic device! So much for my tax dollars. Great!

As a teacher myself, it always intrigue me to see these big ideas on how to improve education coming from politicians who are not in the classroom! They don’t have a clue about what the real problem is!

Well, what the heck! More money for Amazon and its associates, and perhaps a kickback for the politicians. After all 56 million x $299 is an awful lot of money. How do I get a cut?

…or perhaps, I don’t know what I am talking about! What do you think?
