Paperwhite Flaws, e-Book Overcharge Rebates, European Lending Library

Send to Kindle

Kindle PaperwhiteThis week’s most important and interesting Amazon-related news items.  As usual, Amazon always has something interesting going on!

  • Amazon admits its own shortcomings – as reported by Good EReader.  Is this the best they can do?  Is this news to Amazon? Have they not heard of that strange, new idea called “product testing”?
  •  Seems Amazon thinks this is a feature, not a bug.  From their statement    “These variations are normal and are located primarily in the margin where text is not present. The illumination is more even than that created by a book light or lighted cover. The contrast, resolution and illumination of the Paperwhite display is a significant step-up from our prior generation.”
  • I’m sorry to say that the Kindle DX is all gone, even the refurbs, and is only available as a used now!  I can’t help but wonder why companies get rid of a proven seller.  Just seems counter-intuitive to me.
