The author has pulled the NowNow part and substituted something else - probably in response to Pidgeon92's comment over there...

It also makes a dandy coaster for those iced drinks that tend to otherwise leave rings on your expensive coffee table from Home Depot.

I always wanted a coaster with a screensaver.

I have to commend you for noticing the rings and at least wanting to use a coaster. Most men don't.

I like that top ten list, Ann. Here's mine:

1. Read books
2. Read the New York Times
3. Read samples
4. Charge my Kindle
5. Show off my Kindle to others
6. Admire my Kindle in his Oberon cover and skin
7. Read stuff I have sent to my Kindle
8. Take screen shots to post on the FAQ
9. Play with the content manager every now and then to move stuff around
10. Look at my Kindle's name and think about the book I am supposed to be writing

I did find one unconventional use at my FIL's house.  His eyes aren't so good and he has his computer/monitor set up to where he sits Very Close to the screen.  And he has the resolution set at BIG.  I have to sit back several feet which makes it hard to reach the mouse where he has it.  I used my Kindle, in my lap, in it's MEdge cover as a mouse pad.

I think his next birthday gift will be a newer monitor because the picture was also somewhat blurry. . .even after a thorough 'Windexing' and increasing the contrast.

Read Comic Books and Manga works great

Index my reference library. When I need to remember how to code something I just search all my books at once with my kindle best device ever I say

No, you have to charge it so you can keep doing the other 9 things. :)

Okay...I feel like a complete idiot...but how are you all looking up weather and checking movie listings and email, etc?  How did I miss the instructions on how to do that???
