How to Download Kindle Content If You Live Outside the United States – Part 2

This is part 2 in the a two part series of videos that shows you how to buy and download Kindle content from the Kindle store to your Amazon kindle .

In the first video, I showed you how to buy the book from the store if you reside overseas or outside the wireless coverage area and download it to your  computer.

In part 2, I will show you how to take the very same book and download it to your Kindle.

The process is relatively simple as you will see in the video…

So that’s it. Yes you can get a Kindle if you live overseas and still get content.

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?

Using Kindle Overseas – Part 2

Can you buy a Amazon Kindle if you live overseas? The answer is yes.

How? Get someone in the USA to purchase it for you and ship to you. Reason being, you will need a credit/debit card with a USA address to establish an Amazon.com account and make the purchase.

If you have such a credit/debit card with you, great. You can make the purchase yourself, however, it will be shipped to the address you choose in the USA.

You can then have it shipped to you.

How do you get content?

You will not get any content delivered wirelessly to the device because you are way out of the wireless coverage area.

You will need to purchase content from the Amazon website, download it to your computer, and then use the USB cable to download it to your Kindle device.

Once you identify the content you want, make your purchase and go the manage y our kindle section of your account and follow the steps.

Ditto!…And Its Another ebook Reader!

This has truly been a summer of ebook readers!

Yes that’s the name!

  • e-ink display technology
  • ultra-low power consumption battery which only consumes energy on page turns
  • light-weight – 6.4 oz
  • Slim – 0.4″

No extra-ordinary feature such as landscape mode, touch screen, LED lighting, 5-way control,  text-to-speech, wireless whispernet, wi-fi, whispersync, book store, online access, etc.

None of that stuff!

So at a quick glance, what you are getting here is just a basic ebook reader, nothing fancy or  exceptional! No need for drum rolls, whistles, or bells. What you see is what you get!

This is as basic as it gets guys and gals! I have to say that based upon my knowledge of the subject at this point, If I were in the market for an ebook reader, I would put my money on the Amazon Kindle, the Sony digital reader,  or the iRex iLiad 2nd edition …in that order.

I probably would not look any further than that at this point because price-wise, I would be getting a lot for my money compared to the others.

…and just in case you have not heard the latest news, as of yesterday July 8, 2009, the Amazon Kindle 2 is $299…another $60 drop.

…and I might as well go ahead and make the prediction, it’s going to get better.  This is just the beginning guys.  The ebook reader market is off and running.

Breaking News – Kindle 2 Price drops!

Yes, you heard right, the Amazon Kindle 2 is now $299.  From $399 to $359, to  $299…first  $40 lower now  $60 with a span of 18 months.

Seems like the price is on its way down fast.  Once again, Amazon has taken the lead in the ebook reader “world,” this time with the price.

You can expect other ebook readers to follow suit. That’s  if they plan to stay in the game.  Too bad I can’t turn mine back in and get a discount.

Anyway, I still love my Kindle 2.

I wonder if the textbook component has anything to do with it. Who knows.

What do you think?
