Just trying to see how important users thought the NowNow feature was and whether or not they miss it.

I never used it but I thought of a good question the other day that I could have asked if the Now Now wouldn't be Gone Gone. I have since forgotten the question so I guess it wasn't that important anyway :).

I think that the people who answered Now Now questions found the information by the same web-based search that is available to anyone with an internet connection. I can look it up for myself.

Now Now was Gone Gone before I got a chance to us it it.

I don't think I would have really used it much.  It's just as easy to google your own questions.

I never got a chance to use it. I got my Kindle on Friday night and it was about the following Monday that NowNow WentWent ByeBye.

I never got the chance to try it, I live about 30 miles away from Whispernet coverage, but I do go into coverage about twice a month, unfortunately NowNow  was gone after about 2 weeks of owning my kindle.  Even so, I don't think I would have used it a lot anyway.  :)

Since I just joined the Kindle Kommunity, I've never had a chance to use it. What exactly did NowNow do?
You would ask a question (type it in on your Kindle and send it via Whispernet), and the amazon m-turkers would find the answer using the internet and you would get three responses back. You could then grade the responses on how helpful they were.

I was never in doubt as to how short-lived it would be.  I knew that having staff looking up your questions on free wireless to begin with would not last.  I too, only tested it when I first got my Kindle to see the reliability and response time.  Guess none of us miss it...that's what Google is for.

I never got to use it. It was gone a couple of days after I got my kindle.  But the other night I really wished I had it, there was something I wanted to know that was driving me crazy and I didn't want to go to the computer.

hmmm don't remember what it was anymore so must not have been that important!  ;D :eek: ;D

Any time I use my Kindle for anything other than downloading or reading, i.e. internet, etc... it freezes solid. I quickly stopped trying as I use the main computer for that stuff anyway.

I had one trip into wisperland. I ran into a kindle question and asked. answer back was they could not answer kindle questions - to call CS. I had no access to phone so no help.  I thought it had potential though. kind of felt misterious being new to the wispernet and all.

I'm in the boat of never had a chance to use it. But I'm also in the boat of miss it terribly, because it seemed like such a cool feature and I wanted to use it a lot before I got the polite e-mail saying it was gone :(

I find you need like 4 or 5 bars of connection for any remotely decent internet browsing. And that's "remotely decent" in 1990's terms.
