Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: First Impressions -- Kindle PW
« on: October 03, 2012, 09:36:44 am »
I have figured out how to work this screen. As soon as I notice its "lit", I know I went up in light to far. You want to set just so that the screen looks white, but not like its lit. That is why when you are in a dark room at night, you turn it down. So I always manage to just have a whiter e-ink screen without noticing there is a light and without bothering my eyes.

If it wasn't for that tiny tiny bright speck, I would be 100 percent happy. I might decide to keep it even with that considering that I seem to have a perfect screen otherwise. I'll give it a few days and the weekend to decide.

Atunah, I just followed your instructions, and it shadows at the bottom. :)  I also have a light showing on the left is very thin and about a 1/2" high.  It is much less noticeable when I follow your adjustments.  I am really hestitate to return it because the rest of the screen looks so good. 

To import your collections, tap Cloud, then tap the menu, and hit Import Collections.  Only the books that are on the PW when you do this will be automatically added to the collection.

Kindle Accessories / Re: Cases for the Fire 7" HD
« on: September 19, 2012, 07:53:09 am »
My local Best Buy, where that guy stole my credit card and charged a Fire on it, had a  BUNCH of Fires, probably 15 or 20 in both 16 and 32 gb. They had black covers available, but they're sealed in the box and they wouldn't open one for me, which was OK by me 'cause I wanted a blue one. the boxed cover I saw looked very light and felt OK, but I couldn't really tell much about it.

I thought the release date for the 32 gb was Oct. 25.  The same guy must have stolen my credit card and ordered this from Amazon.

I love this series.  As much as I always want to pre-order, I wait until it hits the top ten on NYT bestsellers list.  In the past, the price has dropped to $12.99 then. 

Fire Talk / Re: Collections App Now Available For Fire
« on: July 21, 2012, 03:25:20 pm »
Kindle for Mac does have collections now - not sure how long it's had it but it's been a while, I've got mine set not to update automatically. 

I suspect programming an app for a computer is different from an app for Android or iOS - but then again I'm no programmer.  I've always suspected that the apps for Android, iOS, PC & Mac were meant to be a kind of "gateway drug" to draw people to eInk Kindles, and that's why they didn't have all the features of an eInk Kindle.  The Fire uses the Kindle for Android app - it may be slightly beefed up - I should pull out my Nook Color and compare the Kindle app on it to the one on the Fire as far as font choices, etc.  But honestly most of the other reader apps I've tried, including my favorite Aldiko, don't have "collections".  Stanza for iOS does, though.  And with the Fire branded as a "Kindle", the Kindle app on the Fire really should have collections included - it shouldn't require a 3rd party app.

I'll just continue to keep minimal books in the Kindle app on my Fire, and just download them as I read them.  Works for me since it's my "secondary" reader, but that doesn't mean it's a good solution for other Fire owners. 

Meemo, the Aldiko does have collections.  In List View, there is a tab for collections.  Click on the + above it to add new collections.  Once set up, you can tap the down triangle on the right side to add books.  I discovered this by accident a while back.  I have several set up now.

Kindle Touch 3G w/special offers  9/28 10:13 am CDT.  Estimated delivery 11/22.

Has anyone been able to order a lighted cover in a color other than black?  I can't seem to find where you can purchase the colored covers.

I ordered the purple.

DecalGirl just released some new decals.  I thought of the pink flamingo CoylCushion when I saw this one:

I love the flamingo decal.  I will be ordering that one.

My pink flamingos arrived today.  It looks great...first class work.  I didn't expect it today since you just shipped it on Sat.  The fleece is very soft.  It is great with my iPad and kindle.  It makes typing on my iPad very easy.

The pink one is mine.  I can't wait to see it in person.  It looks fantastic in the picture.

I still have the old version also.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: How often do you see Kindles in public?
« on: June 03, 2011, 07:39:04 am »
The only K3 I have seen out in public was at the doctor's office a couple of weeks ago.   About a year ago, I saw someone in a restaurant reading a nook.   I have seen several iPads.  I don't leave home without my K3.

I received my tracking info.  I just checked and it is still in transit, but it does have the correct destination city and state.

I signed up for the offer. And got my 2 books.  I was able to download the 2 books to my iPhone.  I have started listening to one of them.

I can't wait. I love this series.

Kindle Accessories / Re: LIGHTED cover causing problems?
« on: February 20, 2011, 06:58:35 pm »
I had a problem with the lighted case. I only had it a couple of weeks; and twice when I hit the page button,
it rebooted.  Since I was within the 30 days, I returned it.  I haven't had any problems since.

Kindle Accessories / Re: Your opinions about Zagg invisibleSHIELD?

I have this on my iPad and I hate it.  With a white background, the print looks grainy.  It is okay if the background is dark.  It may not be so bad on the Kindle since it is not backlit.  I would not buy another one for any of my devices.

I received the email this morning and have applied it to my account.

I haven't received any emails yet, but it is showing as a pending purchase.  It says my credit card will be charged within 1 business day.

I remember hearing about a woman who used to break out her Kindle in situations like these, and it turned out to be a like a homing beacon for guys to start hitting on her. They'd practically have their own line to ask her what she's reading and what that gadget was. It kind of discouraged her from doing it.

I've never had that happen...but then at my age, I would probably be flattered if it did. :D

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: Cracks on graphite Kindle?
« on: January 20, 2011, 09:07:58 am »
I just checked my graphite and there are no signs of cracks. I haven't had any problems with the keys fading either. I have had it since September.  It goes everywhe with me.

Mine goes with me everywhere. It is great to have if I am dining alone or even standing in line at the grocery store.
