Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting (Kindle) / Is this a crack?
« on: September 29, 2011, 08:50:38 am »
It's small, doesn't seem to be spreading and I don't actually notice it while reading. I just worry that it is a crack and will eventually get worse.




here is the link to that picture in a bigger size so you can see it better.

I have never met anyone who gave Kindle a try and then didn't like it. I have met plenty of people who don't like the idea of the Kindle though.

My husband only reads on his iPhone. He takes his phone to work with him and reads on his breaks and at lunch. He likes it because he can carry it with him all the time. He can't carry a Kindle around as easily.  I read on my iPod Touch for a year before I finally bought my Kindle. I enjoyed it.

The same thing happened to mine in April.  I called and they replaced it for me. This is what mine looked like.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: Why choose a kindle?

I chose the Kindle because Swagbucks keeps me supplied in $5.00 Amazon gift cards and I knew that would fund my book obsession. Now that I have my Kindle and I have played with my sister in laws Nook Color I am really happy with my choice. I love it.

I've done that many times. I just can't get this to work though.

I can't get this to work at all. I have tried a few times. Did the new Kindle for iPhone update take away the ability to do this or anything? I am just trying to see if I am messing up or if something else is going on.

American Star is one of my favorite books. I have read it a few times and enjoy it every time. I wish it was available for Kindle.

I earn a lot of swagbucks and always trade them for Amazon cards so having those to buy books with was a big buying point. Also, I held my SIL's Nook Color that she got for Christmas and I just was not even a little impressed. I fell in love with my Kindle the minute I took it out of the box.

ETA one other thing. I had the Kindle and Nook apps for my iPhone. I had downloaded free books to both and each time I opened a book for the Nook reader, Barnes and Noble charged my checking acct 1.00. They refunded it after a few days, but that alone was really annoying. It was one of the biggest turn offs for me about the Nook.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: use the Kindle while it it charging? Nope.

With your Kindle plugged into your computer by USB, Go to
START > COMPUTER > RIGHT CLICK ON THE KINDLE ICON > SELECT THE EJECT FROM THE DROP-DOWN MENU.
Your Kindle should now show show the page you were reading, or whatever you were on, and the charging light remains lit.
This is on my Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Yes, this. If you just right click on the icon under the clock on your computer and click eject, it will not let you read while it charges. If you go to the start/computer and right click on kindle and click eject, it does work. It took a while to figure that out for me too.
