Along with the bug fixes, do the recent updates/patches to the Kindle 2 also change Text-to-Speech?  I read that Amazon has changed its DRM model so that publishers have to OPT-IN for customers of their book to use the Text-to-Speech feature.  Any ideas?

That's an interesting move on Amazon's part. I honestly haven't noticed any difference though, the system functions as normal for me.

Actually, it's the opposite. If the publishers don't want the text-to-speech enabled on the books, they have to opt-out and request it be disabled. It's something that can/will be done through the book file, not the Kindle itself (or so I've been told)

I haven't heard of any books yet that don't work yet though.

They will probably implement it soon if nobody has seen it take effect yet....or perhaps most authors really don't care about the Text-To-Speech but the guild is making a big deal out of it for $$$  ??? ???
