Kindle


#1

My Kindle just died… I think.

What’s been happening in the world of the Kindle for the past five years? What should I be looking at? Mine has a keyboard.


#2

They’re all like touch screen and that now aren’t they?


#3

Think they’ve made a really good new one this year innit, sounds like somebody is in for a Christmas treat…


#4

get yersel a backlit one. complete gamechanger.

only other thing I want from it is water-proofing then it will be a 100% perfect product.


#5

thought the point of a kindle was that it isn’t backlit? was that not meant to be the revolution?


#6

So the paperwhite one? £105 with ads!


#7

I’ve got a paperwhite one but not the latest model. I would strongly recommend it for the backlight.


#8

if you are in daylight the backlight switches off, it auto-adjusts depending on the lighting.

you don’t have to switch on a lamp if you’re reading in bed, much better.


#9

I’ve got a load of unread books on it that I can’t get aararrrrggghhh

Not necessarily acquired through Amazon…


#10

Not still on your computer somewhere?


#11

No, cut and paste those suckers. Can’t even remember what I had on there…


#12

I got a Kobo, because Amazon = EVIL, obv.


#13

I have roughly 300 books on my Kindle so I know how you’d feel.


#14

is it easy to put amazon books on a kobo?

I remember trying to find out and as far as I could tell it was possible, but a bit of a ballache


#15

I have no idea.


#16

@theo ?


#17

You can convert any book file in seconds


#18

do amazon not have a mad DRM security thing on theirs though? (I may have made this up)


#19

I’m finding it difficult to look into these. Their website doesn’t work, John Lewis don’t sell them anymore…


#20

Surely you would be within your rights to just pinch a copy of those ones?
