News – More information, via FierceWireless, on Amazon’s parting from Sprint for Kindle wireless coverage (except for the DX), and Andrei Pushkin’s reasoning on why we probably won’t be seeing new wirelessly transmitted Kindle firmware updates any time soon.
Tech Tip – Via listener Mike Detlefsen, a handy way to find out at Amazon when a book was published, and an additional resource for similar information, Fantastic Fiction. Also, Andrei Pushkin updates his Unicode Font Hack for the Kindle International, and Al MacDiarmid turns me on to a font-enlarging hack from Ted Inoue.
Interview – Karen Oland of Books on the Knob highlights some non-Amazon sources for Kindle content, including Baen Books, Fictionwise, and Smashwords. Click here to subscribe to Karen’s blog on your Kindle.
Content – Sudoko for your Kindle from MobileReference, and a Kindle crossword puzzle from Puzux, “the first company to bring quality interactive content to Amazon’s Kindle.” For a look at what these offerings may foretell, I’m singing, “What’s it all about, Abhi?”
Comments – Steve Shank, Rick Askenase, Will DeLamater with a question from the Kindle Educators Group, Jim Jones, and Mike Detlefsen. Also worth checking out: Will DeLamater’s thoughts on last week’s interview with Michael Koenig of the Darden School of Business.
