    Yep. Totally different things. The unlimited space is literally only for digital stuff you buy from Amazon. Everything else gets limited space.

    Yeah.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Think I'm sold on the new Kindle.

    The paperwhite that is, no interest in some shitty iPad clone.

    looks nice but can't really justify an upgrade to my kindle which has nothing wrong with it!

    ipad mini though...

    I thought the whole idea with the current gen Kindles is the greyish background was easier on the eyes? eg: more like paperbook paper. This pearl white jobby looks too bright to me!

    Paperwhite looks hot. Want!

    Guess we'll probably be waiting a year, though. Oh well.

    Yeah, when would these Paperwhites be available in the UK? No mention of them on Amazon.co.uk.
  • Deleted user 7 September 2012 09:20:55
    As a sign of just how I've taken to the Kindle, I've started rebuying my books on the kindle and giving the paper copies away. The thought of which would have made me sick a couple of years ago.

    my wife is the same. she said she would never give up books, our bookshelf is full of rubbish. but now she buys kindle books all the time.

    Its a little sad though as her, her sister and her mum have always read the same books and shared them amongst each other and chatted about them, but thats obviously going now.

    Would be nice if i could "lend" somoene my book by removing it from my library and adding it to theirs

    Was just looking at the lender functionality on the US site, looks good. Hopefully it'll make its way over here, publisher dependent.

    Never had a Lindle, but it seems like me and the misses are buying one for the Mother in Law this Christmas.

    Noob question - how easy is it to put non Amazon purchased books onto ? In other words, can I just dump ePub via USB onto it ?

    You can email or USB transfer supported file types.

    Epubs, no. Not directly, as it is not one of the files supported by Amazon on Kindle. If you use Calibre (open source ereader and ebook manager software) you can use it to send files to your ereader, and it will convert to the appropriate file format on the fly.

    The other issue is DRM. You *can* get plugins for calibre that will rip DRM from ebooks on the flu as well. But that's, you know, naughty.

    If you've got DRM-free books in .azw/MOBI file format, it's just like copying files to an external USB hard-drive.

    So, what do we reckon the chances are of Amazon replacing my Kindle after 2 years?
  • Deleted user 7 September 2012 13:42:39
    You might be in luck, apparently they replace them by the boat load every month (at least what the guy in the shop said).

    I'm very intrigued by the Kindle Fire HD that was announced but I have a very facepalmy question. All of the stuff I've read about it has gone on and on about the content delivery systems and streaming and blah blah

    I'm assuming I can put my own files on the thing and play my own media right?
  • Deleted user 8 September 2012 16:41:04
    Yes. Though depending on the media, you may have to sideload a proper media player for video - the default unit only supports playback of MP4, I think.

    What I'm interested in is whether they'll tune the Android XBMC for it. It doesn't really work on the bog-standard Kindle Fire, but my whole house is basically a big XBMC media-centre setup. If I can get that on a tablet too then my life will pretty much be complete. Watch a movie whilst indisposed in the bathroom, come back to the living room and continue on the TV from where I left off. Pausing for bathroom breaks will be a thing of the past!

    I want the Fire HD 32gig model, I prefer the screen over the Nexus but I want the freedom of the Nexus to run emulators and apps that I want and I like the HDMI output.

    Anyone know how easy it is to root an existing Fire?
  • Deleted user 8 September 2012 18:17:49
    It's virtually one-click for the Fire, but the new models will almost certainly have an upgraded OS behind them, so you can't really gauge it yet. But it'll probably be cracked and rooted within days of release, if not sooner.

    For what it's worth, you can run any apps you want by sideloading, which is trivial to do nowadays.

    No way to opt out of ads. Better hope they don't lock down the bootloader.
