Tech Tip – From Bufo Calvin’s Frequently Asked Questions, a hidden Kindle DX game of Gomoku. Also, via Andrei Pushkin’s blog kindle and clarknova of the MobileRead forum, I install the hack for relief from the monotony of my Kindle 2′s default screensavers. You can find similar hacks via Andrei’s blog for customizing the screensavers on the Kindle 1 and DX.
Content – Via Andrys Basten and Jeffrey Trachtenberg in the Wall Street Journal‘s Speakeasy – Amazon maintains $9.99 as the price for Dan Brown’s next blockbuster, The Lost Symbol – but will the same be true of Stephen King’s next big novel, due out in November?
Comments – A question from Omaha about the CyberPad and an audio excerpt from Stephen Windwalker’s latest Kindle guide, Free, with a tip on how best to listen to this podcast or any other on your Kindle. Also, a Kindle meetup in Portland, Maine, with Leslie Nicoll of KindleBoards.
Note: I could use your support for my “Taming the Kindle” panel proposal for South by Southwest Interactive 2010. Stephen Windwalker kindly posted this pitch and info on how to vote for my proposal using the PanelPicker. If you want to go directly to the PanelPicker to offer a thumbs up, click here. It also helps if you can take the time to leave a comment on my PanelPicker page. Thanks!
