Now that we are starting to see games and other apps coming out for the Kindle, an MP3 player program will probably be developed pretty soon.  I'm surprised there isn't one out already.

Please don't buy electronics on QVC, you can do so much better buying elsewhere.  A couple months ago they were selling Kindle 2's for a higher price than Kindle 3's.

Kindle Accessories / Re: will hinges damage k3?
« on: September 30, 2010, 07:28:24 am »
I've been meaning to start a thread about this but haven't got around to it yet, but my 8 year old daughter picked up my K3 in its Amazon lighted case the other day, and tried to open it "backwards"...  I walked in the room and found her holding my Kindle with the back cover bent back by several inches.  A quick examination showed that the hinges were bent back a good amount, but I simply disconnected the Kindle, grabbed my needle-nose pliers and bent them back into place.  Both Kindle and case are no worse for wear...

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: Kindle 3 WiFi + 3G question
« on: September 05, 2010, 09:04:31 pm »
Amazon has to pay for data pushed over 3G so I doubt there will ever be a way to set it to use 3G over an associated wifi connection without telling it to forget the wifi association.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: So how about that RFID tag?
« on: September 05, 2010, 09:00:21 pm »
It's also used to associate a boxed kindle with your account...  When you order the Kindle, they scan the box and read the ID off the tag, then associate that tag with your account.  So when you receive it it's registered, a personalized welcome letter is delivered to the Kindle, etc.  Pretty neat if you ask me.

Edit: Oops, somebody beat me to it.

This is an excellent article.  Nice to see someone finally get this argument right.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Another "Are E-Readers a Fad?" article...

This one isn't as one-sided as some I've seen, but I really don't understand why the press continues to group the Kindle and other e-readers with the Ipad.

I would probably keep my order, use it on the sly for two weeks until my birthday then return it when I got the b-day Kindle...

The KBoards Photo Gallery / Re: cover pics
« on: August 08, 2010, 07:02:34 pm »
I'm a bit late to the party but I'd go with the first one, simply because it's harder to tell the the gun isn't a revolver...  The semi-automatic pistol really doesn't go with the rest of the picture.  Small details like that tend to annoy me.
