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

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.

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.

Supply Chain Suggests iPad 3 is in Production | The iPad Guide.

iPad 3 Release Date

Unlike the iPhone 5 Apple doesn’t seem to have the luxury of sleeping on the iPad 3. The tablet war has been set ablaze by the HP TouchPad fire sale and recent Kindle Fire announcement. People are looking for quality tablets for cheap, and Apple’s competition is starting to deliver.

If Fidacaro is right, and Apple is working on the iPad 3, perhaps we will be seeing it sometime in early 2012. March seems like a good guess since it’s the month they announced the iPad 2.
