Kindle Now Allowing You to Upload Your PDFs to Your Kindle Device via “Send to Kindle”

12 Jan

Kindle Just Turned Into an Instapaper for Your Files.

Now Amazon’s making it easier to send non-book files to your Kindle.

Send to Kindle is a new plugin that lets you send a file right to your Kindle right from the Print menu. You can also store stuff in your Kindle Library to download later, which is nice if you don’t want to spam hundreds of files onto your reader, but want access to your junk. Mac support is coming, but for it’s just for Windows.

Dearest music labels, can you please stop trying to make Grooveshark a guinea pig? Where are all your lawsuits against Google and Amazon?

15 Dec

Just as Google takes down any music or music videos that are uploaded by Google/YouTube account holders and deemed “copyright-infringing” by music labels or artists, so does Grooveshark.

So why not sue Google as well? You’re just trying to shut down a smaller, but innovative company that was one of the first movers and sponsors of music in the digital, streaming age.

By the way, I heard of this thing called Google Music. I’ve currently uploaded over 13,000 songs to it too. Oh, and I did the same for Amazon Music.

But wait, did Google and Amazon get your permission before starting these music services like Apple did? No. Google reached out only after starting its service, and Amazon still has ways to come.

So why not work things out fairly with Grooveshark?

Be fair to everyone, or just let the innovators continue changing the world we live in for the better. I’ve bought concert tickets for musical artists I found on Grooveshark that I would have never purchased had I not heard their music streaming on Grooveshark.

Will Amazon Soon Spy On You Through Your Kindle or Amazon Phone?

15 Dec

Made public last week, the patent describes a system that allows mobile devices — read Kindles, or a future Amazon phone — to track the geographical position of users, and then use that information to predict their likely next steps. The intention is then to use that information to better target ads, coupons, or other messages, that could appear either on the mobile device itself, or on big screens or other displays on the person’s route.

It’s not hard to imagine Amazon striking up deals with retailers, malls and venues who have TVs and other displays dotted abut, in order to beam adverts right at you. Nor is it hard to imagine it working incredibly well: if I was at a bar at a sports game and received a promotional voucher on my phone or Kindle offering cheap tequila, then hell, I may well take it.

The Motorola RAZR Is $111 for Tomorrow Only

10 Nov

 

 

 

 

Motorola’s kevlar-lined RAZR is coming out tomorrow at a pretty hefty $300 price tag. Except! Tomorrow’s exceedingly singular, palindromic 11/11/11 date has swayed the folks at AmazonWireless to run a twee little promotion where you can nab a RAZR for $111.11.

Sure, it’s a little hokey, but are you really going to complain about getting almost $200 off an awesome phone because of a dorky campaign? Well, okay, you’re probably still going to make fun of it, but it’s a darn good deal. [AmazonWireless]
