Let's Talk Kindle! / Older Kindle
« on: September 25, 2016, 01:59:07 pm »
I want to archive all the books on an older Kindle, I forgot how, did it @ a year on my DX (apparently it was full)  Seemed simple enough, just lost the path,

Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod...) / hot iPad

Through normal use the iPod 4 gets hot in the middle of the left side (looking at it)  I'm guessing the battery is there.  We've always used the Battery Doctor to recharge and the unit got very hot to the touch the other day.  Now I see Apple dropped the Battery Doctor app.  Normal charging doesn't bring up the heat but the regular use heat does concern me.  Is this normal/OK?  Use proper wall outlet plug & cable.  Ver 6.13 installed

Let's Talk Kindle! / Is whispernet active?

I have downloaded many books from the archives on my father's Kindle in another state.  I spoke with him today and while trying to download from the archives he got a message that he needed a WiFi connection.  Has something changed?  I have WiFi here at home so I don't know.  As long as 2 1/2 months ago the Whispernet worked just in my fathers home fine w/o the WiFi.  Any suggestions or news about this?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Downloads with OUT available wifi.

I want to buy a Kindle for my father, I showed mine to him and to explain how to use it and how the internet connection worked.  I turned on the Kindle internet connection, got into the Amazon pages without any difficulty.  At the same time my laptop & iPad would not connect to anyones network - they were all blocked.  Is the whispernet system independent of networks?  What I want to know, if I buy my father a Kindle will it work in home as mine did?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Kindle DX & iPad
« on: November 30, 2010, 05:05:09 pm »
With both devices registered to me, can I read all my Kindle books on the iPad?   Do I need to send Kindle downloads right to the iPad?  I would like (like what I want really matters) to direct all downloads to the Kindle and be able to read, once in a while, on the iPad?  Before I buy the iPad I'd like to know if I can read my Kindle books on it.  I love my Kindle and have books on it my wife wants to read, she can really use an iPad and we don't need 2 Kindles and I don't set the Kindle down long enough for her to read a book.  Any direction will be appreciated.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Prices for books
« on: August 14, 2010, 06:50:18 am »
I've read over 60 books on my DX just this year, one might get the impression I love my Kindle.  I have thousands of books in my basement and they are all important to me BUT the accumulation had to stop. Kindle was the answer.  When I started this most books I wanted were $9.99, when higher I could wait a couple months and the price would drop down. That has seemed to stop.  I've wanted a book (on my Kindle) that has special gilded pages that I won't get and at a higher price.  When looking at the ad it says used editions for $.01.  So I should buy a special book for my Kindle at $14.99  while I could get the same special book (retailing for @ $20.00) for 1 cent from the same company.  Kindle says its the publisher who raises the costs.  We are not getting things, we are getting information and paying a premiums price for the pleasure of Kindle.  They are pricing themselves out of reach for millions of users who will look for the 1 cent book over the $14.99 information. There are many readers in my family, while waiting for the Kindle price to drop, family members just pass on a paperback to me for free.  In this E Book world, Kindle better treat its readers better.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Bookmarks

Using my DX daily (& loving it) I've usede the bookmars function to save my place as things come up.  I have a lot of bookmarks and want to delete them, is there an easy way?  Maybe one click to remove all of them?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Its arrived
« on: September 09, 2009, 09:50:01 am »
Ordered it at Noon Saturday (labor day weekend) arrived at 9am, UPS.  I was so excited followed by panic, it was lying on my concrete porch.  I was hoping the UPS person didn't do the 3 food drop when leaving it.  Alls well.  It was 3/4 charged and I'm off to learn..& order the 1st couple books. 
This site has been great and I will refer to it often.  I forsee doing very little other than reading books so other than adding my own screen saver I'm pretty much ready to take off.. As a 30 year firefighter I told myself the 1st day I wasn't going to watch 18 hours of TV every day so for many years I read @ 100 books a year.  This Kindle is the way to do it and I'll tell some of the firefighters to look into it & this page.

Thanks & see you again, jwj

Introductions & Welcomes / Thanks for being there

I have read everything on Kindle DX and covers, for months.  I have bought houses, cars, iPods just because I wanted them but I could never press the button for the Kindle DX.  Today's the day and this page not only answered all my questions but showed me how computer illiterate I really am.  I'll probably add my own screen savers and from there on read, read, read.  I've told my wife all the books we can read with this knowing I won't out it down so within a month or so Kindle DX #2 will probably be on the way.  This page has all the answers, I just don understand many of the questions.  Off to order the DX & M Edge Platform Cover, maybe a light.  Thanks again, jwj
