Kindle 3 is the latest Amazon take in the eBook readers market and it does not disappoint: It is smaller and lighter, comes in two colors and ads WiFi to the specifications list. I received mine on Friday from Amazon and had the whole weekend to play with it, so here is my experience. Before starting, I want to add that I also own Kindle 2 and Barnes and Noble’s Nook for quite a while, so my review will not only go through all the Kindle 3 functionality but it will also compare its features and usability against the other two devices. In the end, I will add a series of functionality tips and tricks destined to improve your experience.
I ordered the Dish Network VIP922 ( VIP 922 ) as soon as I read the announcement that it is available. The current upgrade price is $200, for existing customers, not sure how much for the new customers. The technician was half an hour late, not a big deal and the first thing he wanted to do was to check the dish placement and connections. It looks like, since my last Dish Network installation about two years ago they changed the installing codes and the guy wanted to see if everything is in order, expecting his supervisor to inspect the site later.
I just posted a blog about Yahoo! Search being available in App Store and I figured it out that some people may not know how to take screen shots. Starting version 2.X, iPhone OS implements a built-in screen shot feature. To use it is very simple. Click and hold the Home button for about 1-2 seconds and while doing that, also click the Sleep button for a short period of time. If you successfully took a screen shot, the screen will flash for a moment and you will also hear a sound similar with the one when taking a picture. That’s it, your newly taken screen shot should be in the Photos application under Camera Rolls along with the rest of your pictures taken the regular way (via the built-in camera).
