Last week we learned you can jailbreak every current model of Kindle. Even better, while the process is a bit time-consuming, it’s also pretty easy to do. The end result is a Kindle that’s a little more pleasurable to use. Here’s how to do it.
While supplies last, Amazon’s offering up a Kindle Paperwhite bundle which includes a magnetic leather case and a USB charger for just $128 (with code 9ZHMJMIP), or only $8 more than buying the Kindle alone. The best part? You get seven different cover colors to choose from.
Amazon has just announced some nice improvements to the cheapest Kindle. The price is still crazy good at $80, and the battery still lasts for weeks. (It also still has a middling 167 ppi display.) But it’s also thinner, lighter, and now comes in black and white.
Despite competition from tablets boasting full-color LCD displays, devices that use black and white electronic paper, like Amazon’s Kindle, have remained popular. And now that E Ink has created the first full-color electronic paper, e-readers have found yet another way to remain relevant.
Kindle’s latest e-reader is out and it’s a damn fine product—the best e-reader ever made even. It’s also the most expensive e-reader currently available. So if the idea of spending $290 on a portable library makes you shudder than it’s time to consider the other guys.
The Amazon Oasis is practically perfect in every way. It doesn’t forge relationships between bratty kids and their errant fathers or wax bannisters with its ass, but as e-readers go, it leaves you satisfied. It’s light, easy to read, has wonderful ergonomics and incredible battery life.
I didn’t think I could be surprised by a new Kindle, but, well, Amazon got me with the Kindle Oasis. In more than one way. It’s weird-looking, and the $290 price tag is shocking.
If you own one of Amazon’s pre-2012 Kindles, listen up: there’s a critical update that you need to install if you want to keep using it, and you must do so before March 22nd.
As entertaining as the internet can be, who has time to read all of it? Even employing the services of a read-it-later app such as Instapaper or Pocket can make catching up on articles difficult. What you need is a dedicated reading device, free from social media pings, email alerts, and other distractions—and that’s…
I’ve been using Kindles since ebooks were barely a thing, and while the hardware has come a very long way, the user interface has been lingering. At long last, the much-neglected homescreen is being fixed.
Before you go buy a tablet, you should ask this question: “what am I going to use this tablet for?” This seems like common sense, but really, take a moment. What are you going to do with that slab of internet-connected screen?
For a limited time, Amazon’s taking $20 off the sticker price of several e-Ink Kindle models, including the first deal we’ve seen on the new, 300ppi Kindle Paperwhite.
With Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, and a little dirge known as “Let It Go,” Disney controls your children. There’s no use resisting anymore. But at least you don’t have to worry about entertaining them, now that Disney can stream those movies to practically any device under the sun.
Sure, writing a note on a piece of paper and plopping a magnet on it to stick it to a refrigerator works perfectly fine. But if you have an old Kindle around and want an over-engineered, but fun new way to leave fridge messages, DIYer Pete Vojtek shows you how to display notes on a Kindle.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Amazon’s Lab126—makers of the Kindle, Fire Phone, and Amazon Echo—is laying off dozens of engineers. That’s a shame. Some consolation: now we can hear about the gadgets they were secretly building!
In honor of Jon Stewart’s final farewell, Amazon is offering up to 80% off dozens of Kindle books from his most popular guests, today only.http://gawker.com/bloggers-jobs-…
We’re talking the old-fashioned kind. A “new” Dr. Seuss book, What Pet Should I Get? is cause for rejoicing, and likely the purchase of a paper copy, if you’re into Dr. Seuss. But do you really buy books these days?
