News – Firmware update to version 1.2.0 – do you have it yet? Timothy Crabtree does. UPDATE: In the podcast I mentioned Abhi’s speculation suggesting that Amazon might open up pre-orders for the new Kindle. The date he mentioned was Sunday, Jan. 25th, not Feb. 25th as I said at 5:41 in the podcast. Thanks to Linda Hopkins for spotting this!
Tech Tip – How to send someone a text message from your Kindle. (Thanks to Woody Woodward for the suggestion.)
