Kindle for PC
As it is known by all of us that Amazon released a Kindle for PC app, which is available as a free 5.17MB download for Windows 7, Vista, and XP. It is of great resemblance like Kindle for iPhone app. Kindle for PC syncs your Amazon e-book downloads and shows them on your computer for convenient reading either when you’re away from your svelte e-book reader or if you chose not to buy it in the first place.
Though kindle is a nice handy device, the application is also necessary I think. Kindle for PC app does the job we want it finish for us. Except for other benefits, it syncs your last read page with Whispersync as well as Kindle notes and promises to utilize Windows 7’s touch technology. It is also capable for us to share the joy of pinch-zoom, turning pages with finger swipes. Amazon is reportedly working on the ability to create notes and highlights on your PC and a search function. We are truly looking forward those elevated changes.
It’s been far away from the time for us to make a fuss on the drm protection attached on Kindle books which brings great trouble for reading them on other applications., such as such as iPad, Sony Reader, iPhone, iPod touch, Android phone/tablet.

Just a few days ago, we told you that an update for Amazon Kindle Fire users was on the way. So you shouldn’t be too surprised when we tell you that the update, to software version 7.2.2, is now making its way to Amazon Kindle Fire units. As we told you the other day, the update brings with it the Kindle Free Time Unlimited capabilities that give your kids the chance to find appropriate content on the tablet. Designed for those in the 3 to 8 year old bracket, each kid will get an individual profile and home screen space. Apps have had commercials and social media removed and in-app purchases are disallowed. It’s almost like having a separate Amazon Kindle Fire for you and one for your children. Amazon Prime members must pay $2.99 for the service for one child, or $6.99 for the whole family. If you aren’t an Amazon Prime member, those prices jump to $4.99 and $9.99 respectively.
In addition, the content available with the service includes just about every movie or television show made for kids. Amazon has really come up with a feature that parents will find useful and kids will just love. In such a highly competitive tablet market, Kindle Free Time Unlimited can be the difference between parents buying an Apple iPad mini or deciding on an Amazon Kindle Fire HD instead. Those that decide on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD or the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 can receive one free month of Kindle Free Unlimited by clicking on the Kindle Free Time app before January 15th 2013
In addition to Kindle Free Time Unlimited, the update allows you to now take pictures using the front facing camera. And Swype has been added to the tablet allowing you to type by swiping your fingers over the virtual QWERTY keyboard. The update has rolled out OTA, so installing it should be a breeze. Look out for the new software which should hit your Amazon Kindle Fire at any time.
Amazon has just fired another shot in its battle to convince families to buy its Kindle Fire tablet (starting at $159). The company just announced Kindle FreeTime Unlimited, which it describes as an “all-you-can-eat content service built from the ground up just for kids.” The service requires a Kindle Fire device (it doesn’t work on iPads and Android tablets) and prices start at $2.99 a month per child for families that already subscribe to Amazon’s $79 a year Amazon Prime service (that also includes free 2-day shipping and access to free videos). A family membership is $6.99 a month for Prime members. Non-prime subscribers pay $4.99 per child or $9.99 for a family membership. Owners of the newest Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD get one month of FreeTime Unlimited for free
The new service is aimed at children from 3 to 8.
Kids will be able to watch videos, play games, use apps and read books from content partners including Andrews McMeel Publishing, Chronicle Books, DC Comics, Disney, HIT Entertainment, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Marvel, Nickelodeon, PBS, Rainbow and Sesame Workshop.
Amazon said that children wil be able to explore content on their own and “pick for themselves what to read, watch or play next.” Characters will include Elmo, Dora, Thomas & Friends, Cinderella, Buzz Lightyear, Lightning McQueen and Curious George.
Amazon has disabled any in-app purchases so parents don’t have to worry about their kids running up a bill.
Amazon said that it’s working with Common Sense Media, a non-profit organization that provides independent ratings of books, movies, television, apps, games, websites, and music.
Send to Kindle for Firefox is an extension by Amazon that allows you to send Web content to your Kindle. Previously only available for Chrome, it’s a nice way to queue up long Web articles for offline reading. It also formats the content for easier reading, sans ads, menus, and other distractions. Here’s how to use Send to Kindle for Firefox.
After you’ve installed Send to Kindle for Firefox, the Kindle button will appear in the upper right-hand corner of the Firefox toolbar. Left-click on it to bring up the options box.
The “Send to Kindle” option sends the content immediately to your Kindle. The first time you use it, you’ll be prompted to log in to your Amazon account and choose delivery options, including which Kindle device(s) you want to send it to. You can also choose “Preview & Send” if you’d like to look at the layout first. If you want to only send selected text, choose “Send Selected Text.”
That’s it. If you want to change which devices you want your articles sent to, go to Settings; you’ll be able to change delivery settings, as well as log yourself out of all active Send to Kindle browser extension sessions.
If you own a Kindle device you know that the books you download are associated with your Amazon account so that you can access them on other devices as well. Kindle apps have made their appearance on several devices not manufactured by Amazon directly, including a Kindle reader for Windows and web browser versions. Kindle apps are available for all major smartphone operating systems and tablets as well.
It feels like a natural progression that Amazon has released a Kindle application for Windows 8 that users of the operating system can make use of to read their ebooks on a device running the operating system. You are asked to either create a new Amazon account or sign in to an existing account to get started. If you are an existing user, you will shortly thereafter see all your Kindle ebooks listed in the application interface.
If you have added books recently to your account, you may need to right-click and select synchronize to start a manual synchronization of books. Books include free and commercial Kindle ebooks that you have purchased.
You can click on any title on display here to start reading right away in a full screen interface. A right-click while doing so displays a slider at the bottom highlighting the current location in the text, and a tools menu at the top which you can use for a variety of information outlined below:
- Library links back to the book library on the start page.
- Back goes back to the page you have been reading previously.
- Go to enables you to quickly jump to a page
- View opens an onscreen menu that you can use to make changes to font size, margins, the color mode and the number of columns displayed while reading.
- Bookmark and Notes/Mark enable you to bookmark pages and jump to them.
- Sync jumps to the furthest page read on all devices connected to your Kindle account.
- Pin to start allows you to pin the book to the start screen of the Windows 8 operating system.
You can go back and forward with a mouse click on the left or right side of the current page while reading or use the cursor keys for that instead. It is very likely that you can also use touch to do that on touch-enabled devices, but I could not test that.
The front page links to the Amazon Kindle store, but that is far from ideal as it is launching the store in the default system browser instead of the application interface. Another thing that is missing is the ability to add local ebooks to the app so that you can read those ebooks using the application as well.
All in all an app that will probably only be used by Kindle owners who also own a Windows RT tablet as it is not possible to install the PC reader software on RT versions of the operating system.
The Amazon Kindle Fire HD line of devices have witnessed increased sales since Apple’s reveal of the all new iPad Mini. According to the company sales for its moderately priced $199 tablet shot up following Apple’s Wednesday press conference.
One of the more overlooked announcements from Apple’s event yesterday was that the iBooks now has support for Asian languages. Chinese, Korean and Japanese are all available in native right-to-left format with their own stores to support the titles available in these countries. It seems the announcement has forced Amazon’s hand to announce their own Asian expansion.
Amazon announced today that the Kindle Store is now available in Japan with the Kindle Paperwhite being the first device to natively support the Japanese language. The device will have access to over 50,000 Japanese-language Kindle books and over 15,000 manga titles. The Wi-Fi Paperwhite will be available for a relatively cheap 8,480 yen ($106) and the Wi-Fi/3G version will retail for 12,980 yen ($162).
“After twelve years of selling print books on Amazon.co.jp, we are excited to offer the millions of Amazon.co.jp customers the new Kindle Store, with the largest selection of the books people want to read, the largest selection of Oricon best sellers in books, bunko, and manga, and over 50,000 Japanese-language titles—all available to anyone with a Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Fire, Android phone, Android tablet, iPhone, or iPad,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO. “Kindle Paperwhite is the Kindle e-reader we have always wanted to build—it has 62% more pixels and 25% higher contrast than the previous generation Kindle, built-in front light, perfect for reading in bed or in sunlight, even thinner, with 8 weeks of battery life.”
The Japanese Kindle store will launch on October 25. The store will feature a number of exclusive titles from some of Japan’s most prolific authors including Arimasa Osawa and Yusuke Kishi. Amazon is also going to be pushing manga in a big way by making the latest volume of Neon Genesis Evangelion exclusive to the Kindle Store.
The Kindle Fire HD is already available in Japan, but the Kindle Paperwhite is their first stab at offering eReaders in the country. Tablets are growing in popularity in Japan thanks to the iPad, but it’s hard to tell if eReaders will have the same success. The exclusive title are definitely a good first start.
The Amazon Kindle DX has gone through a few iterations since it was initially released May 6, 2009. It featured a 9.7 inch e-Ink screen that mainly appealed to people who read complex PDF documents or need a bigger screen. In 2010, the international edition was released to over 100 different countries and the Kindle DX Graphite was issued in July of 2010. The Graphite was the company’s flagship large screen reader with better contrast and an accelerometer to automatically switch the orientation. The hefty price-tag and unwieldy nature ensured that it would never garner the mass market appeal that Amazon had originally envisioned. Today the company removed all official product listings from the website and the only way to purchase one is via third parties.
One of the biggest drawbacks on owning a Kindle DX was the lack of features implemented via firmware updates. There hasn’t been a single new update issued in almost two years and many people saw the six inch line take all the glory. With the advent of the Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD line of e-readers and tablets, there is no reason to continue selling the DX. Amazon has never disclosed whether it will introduce a follow-up, and it is extremely unlikely that they will ever release another e-reader larger than six inches.
I learned a couple of nifty tips for the Kindle Paperwhite over the weekend, including how to capture screenshots and how to remove the annoying recommended titles that appear on the first page of the homescreen.
Mastering how to snap screenshots takes a little practice, but once you get it down it works well. All you have to do to take a screenshot is tap the upper left corner and lower right corner at the same time. Or you can tap the upper right corner and lower left corner at the same time. Both options will do the trick.
When it works the screen will flash once and refresh.
To access the screenshots you have to plug the Kindle Paperwhite into a computer with a USB cable. The images get saved to the root of the Kindle drive in PNG format.
To remove the recommended ebooks that Amazon places on the bottom of the homescreen, as shown in the screenshot above, all you have to do is turn on parental controls in the settings menu and then turn off access to the Kindle Store.
Doing this removes the recommended titles from the homescreen, but it also makes it so the Kindle Store icon is grayed out and inaccessible. The downside with this is you have to go back into parental controls, enter a password, and re-enable the setting any time you want to visit the Kindle Store.
Amazon has already said that they are going to add the option to turn off recommendations on the Kindle Fire HD in an upcoming firmware update. Perhaps they will do the same for the Kindle Paperwhite too.
The tech world took to the announcement of Amazon’s latest two Kindles, the Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Paperwhite, with enthusiasm, but not every Kindle model is riding the wave of good tidings.
Amazon’s Kindle DX, the extra-large reader introduced in 2009, may finally be experiencing an official phase out.
The signs became clear Monday, as all evidence of the Kindle DX, including Amazon’s official Kindle comparison tables and Kindle product box images, was apparently scoured from the web.
Tellingly, the Kindle DX is no longer being sold directly by Amazon, either, and there’s no indication that it will ever return, though third-party sellers on the website still offer it.
Awaiting Amazon’s clarification
TechRadar has reached out to Amazon for comment on what’s going on, but for now the evidence appears to speak for itself.
We’ll update this post if and when Amazon decides to officially announce the death of the Kindle DX – or refute this rumor entirely.
There are still reports that a second-generation Kindle DX is for sale through Amazon, though its software and hardware is said to be severely out of date.
It’s truly unclear what all this means, so hopefully Amazon decides to speak up soon.
Death of the Kindle DX
The Kindle DX hasn’t been updated since 2010, so Amazon’s apparent move to discontinue it isn’t entirely unexpected.
The 10-inch reader reportedly never quite caught on, due possibly to its sheer size and general unwieldiness.
Monday’s reports of the Kindle DX’s discontinuation come hot on the heels of a massive discount on the reader, which went from $379 (UK£239, AU$369) to $299 (UK£186, AU$291) within a week.
The price drop may have well been a final effort on Amazon’s part to empty its shelves of Kindle DX stock before discontinuing the device forever.
However, some hardcore Kindle DX fans may still hold out hope for a Kindle DX Paperwhite, an extra-large reader with up-to-date tech, though Amazon’s given no indication of such a product’s existence.
We can still hope, right?
