Thread: Kindle 2

  1. From what I've read, it's a decent improvement over the 2 which makes it the best reader on the market but it's probably not worth the upgrade from 2.

    My father recently got a Kindle 2 that he barely uses so I've been borrowing it for a few weeks. I love it and I'd buy my own this very minute if Amazon stopped being horrible and added EPUB support.

    I doubt Amazon would ever add ePub support. What's their incentive? Their store has the best selection for ebooks and even though mobi format is not as flexible as epub, they don't care since most users would never notice anyway.

  3. Their incentive is that I would buy the thing.

    Proprietary formats make my teeth hurt.

    I hate format wars.

    I hate format wars.
    Format war for ebooks/text is so stupid. At least you can convert from one to another easily with Calibre. I am very happy with the Nook.

    They don't give a shit about you.

    You get me so hot sometimes.

  7. If you hate mobi, just get a Nook or Sony ereader (or myriad other brands). Nook's screen is only slightly less sharp compared to K3, and other ereaders will have the pearl screen very soon anyway.

  8. Thanks for letting me read this great post, keep it up.

    That exact thing actually does happen to me, and often.

    No longer am I restricted to the iPhone app slums, I just got the new Kindle jams and it is awesome.
