Update info in Amazon email
« on: February 22, 2011, 07:41:54 am »
OMG, the world must be coming to an end... I just got an email from Amazon that lists the features of the new 3.1 update being rolled out.

Such things used to be secret, what will they think of next?  ;D ;D

    I got it. None of the features involving sharing with social networks interest me. I turned off seeing other people's highlights, and I will turn off any other annoying features they come up with.

    I didn't get that e-mail!  (It was driving me crazy, because everyone else got an informative announcement from Amazon..but I didn't!)  At first I wondered if they were staggering the software updates to Kindles, and decided to also stagger the e-mails accordingly.  And then I realized there were two reasons I probably didn't get it.

    A long time ago, I set up my Amazon account so it wouldn't receive any advertising e-mails from Amazon.  (You click on your Account, and then select "Email preferences and notification.") I just went back in and opted in to receive e-mails, but only about the Kindle. Now that Amazon is actually sending out information about the Kindle -- I want to receive it! :)

    But a friend of mine sent me the e-mail, and when I read it, I realized why I wouldn't get it. Amazon doesn't want to send out a large software update to millions of people over their wireless network, so they're telling customers to download it over a WiFi connection. And that's when I remembered: I don't have a WiFi connection. I'm still using a Kindle 2! :D

    And even if you did have wifi on K2, you would not get it because it's for K3.  Doubt there will be more updates for K2.
