Amazon lets readers follow authors

Amazon has quietly launched a new way for readers follow their favorite authors. Amazon Follow lets fans know of an author’s latest activity.

Of course readers can choose which authors to follow, and if one of those authors releases a new book the reader followers will be notified shortly thereafter. Amazon will also notify a reader if a person they follow publishes an article.

An author’s follow button can be found on their author page, and readers can manage their privacy settings as well as the authors they follow on each reader’s public profile page.

This might be yet another attempt from Amazon to drag users away from other social networks into it’s own realm.

After shooting her little brother dead, Annie Radford is sent to a psychiatric hospital for assessment. Hearing voices in her head, Annie is forced to undergo experimental new treatments devised by a mysterious old man who lives in the hospital’s attic. It soon becomes clear that the hospital’s staff, led by the vicious Nurse Winter, are involved in some dark and horrific plans.

As Annie struggles to survive the hospital, she learns more about Nurse Winter’s own story. Once a promising young medical student, Nurse Winter also heard voices in her head. What kind of signals are being transmitted from the basement of the hospital? Who is the old man in the attic? Why are living human brains kept in jars? And what is the dark secret that lurks at the heart of the hospital?

Whispersync now works with personal documents in the cloud

Whispersync works with personal documents now. If you mail any personal documents to your Kindles email adress, these docs are saved on amazons servers, so you can re-download them to your Kindle anytime.
With the new software for the Kindle 3 you can manage these personal docs right from your Kindle.

Sadly users, like me, with a Kindle DXG are left out again. No update so far. As a Kindle DX/DXG user you are also able to send documents wireless to your device for a charge of 19 to 99 cents per MB (depending on where you are). You can and also send docs for free to your free.kindle.com address and on arrival transfer these docs via USB to your Kindle DXG. Your docs will be stored in the cloud as well, but you can not access them directly from your Kindle DXG. What is new is the fact, that suddenly there is a “Send to” button right to your docs. I’ve tried this button several times and was able to send any personal document free of charge to my Kindle DXG via 3G.

This even works outside the US, if you are a US citizen travelling abroad. If this is not a mistake by Amazon I can live very well without a software update for my Kindle DXG. Although I would advise not to over-stress this new function.

The cloud storage so far is 5GB for each account. That is a nice addition to the 3.3GB memory in your Kindle.
