Finally library lending for Kindle

Kindle owners will be able to borrow Kindle books from over 11,000 US libraries.

The books can be read on Kindle and free Kindle reading apps. Furthermore, Amazon enables notes, highlights and sync via whispernet, so when you check out a book again or maybe buy it, your notes and highlights will be available to you.

The lending function is available to all Kindle generations as to all free Kindle apps for Android, iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, PC, Mac, BlackBerry or Windows Phone.

Amazon is working with OverDrive, which is the leading provider of digital content solutions for over 11,000 public and educational libraries in the United States.

So finally Amazon erases one big disadvantage to the EPUB-eReaders out there.

Kindle periodicals are safe

In a Gizmodo article they say that you will lose your Kindle back issues of a magazine if you cancel your subscription. This is just plain wrong!

Back-issues on a Kindle are not deleted to cancellation of a subscription. They will reside on the device until you manually delete them. But they might vanish if the issue is more then seven issues old. If you want to keep older issues you have to secure them manually.

Here is the specific part of the Kindle help page:

Kindle for $114 w. Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers

“Amazon Introduces New Kindle Family Member: Kindle with Special Offers for $114
That is $25 less for the #1 bestselling latest-generation Kindle plus special offers and sponsored screensavers.

Special offers in the initial weeks include:
. $10 for $20 Amazon.com Gift Card,
. $1 for an album in the Amazon MP3 Store, and
. a $100 Gift Card with a new Amazon Rewards Visa Card

There is no $25 lower price for the Kindle 3G model, that still costs $189. The use of the 3G wireless for updating the screensavers and the ads may be just to expensive. That way the difference between the lowest-priced Kindle and the 3G model will be $75 now rather than $50.

GMail lost emails

Googles GMail allegedly has been losing emails from some user’s mailboxes this weekend. Well, not just some emails were lost but everything disappeared from some GMail accounts.

Google are working on a fix and you can assume that they have a thorough backup system. But it is scary nonetheless.

So the message is again: backup your stuff regularly.

Stephen King earns $80K for Kindle exclusive e-novella “Ur”

Stephen King might be called an early adopter if it comes to digital publishing and e-books. As early as March 2000 King published the story “Riding the Bullet” as an e-book that could be downloaded from the Web onto hand-held devices or computers.

When the second generation of Amazon’s Kindle went on sale in February 2009, King wrote the novella “Ur” exclusively the Kindle platform.

So far “Ur” earned him $80.000 for a work of three days, as he points out: “I didn’t do ‘Ur’ for money. I did it because it was interesting. [...] It took three days, and I’ve made about $80,000. You can’t get that for short fiction from Playboy or anybody else. It’s ridiculous.”
