Since this service has been discontinued, should it be deleted?  I didn't get a chance to use it often, but I thought it was a nice feature.  I would have thought that Amazon would have deleted it via whispernet, but maybe that's not possible.

Amazon stopped supporting it a month or so ago.  (NowNow is now ThenThen or mabye, WasWas ? :) )Tbarney, you might have been one of the last to get an answer.  I think there were problems in how it was supposed to work, in getting people to be answerers - pay was nominal, in people sending dumb questions, and answerers getting catty and sending dumb answers.  So they decided the experiment didn't work.

I never used it myself.  If I have a question I generally use google on the computer.  If a computuer doesn't happen to be at hand, Kindle does have access to wikipedia which is reliable for all but those answers that must be very highly vetted.

Oh, and I don't think thre's any way to 'delete' it from your Kindle.  :)

I assume this was under 'Experimental'? Doesn't show up on mine....Just got it the first of this month....
Yes, it was one of 3 things under experimental with Basic Web and Play Music.

Interesting. So they haven't taken it away with a software upgrade to those of us who've had our Kindle's a while, but it sounds like they didn't include it with new Kindles after it was discontinued.

Just curious, what's your software version? (On the bottom of the settings page.)
