Mark Roberts

Preacher at Westside church of Christ in Irving, Texas

Interview Starts at 21:06

…the Bible has gone through a number of shifts already. It began as a scroll. It then went on to become a codex, and now it is digital. It began in a time when it was not available to the common man, at least not very easily, to being much more commonly available, and then during the time of the Dark Ages, to largely being shut away from ordinary people, to now it’s at a time where it’s widely available to everyone and anyone.

    Len, re the comments on automatic software downloads: It seems to me that the REAL problem the writer had is that Amazon doesn’t let the user have multiple LEVELS of collections, which could be structured any way they wished, like Folders on a PC. Software downloads should be transparent to the user, as they not only add features, but also fix security and operational issues.

    I’ve been hoping for better collections, for something like – Level 1 (two collections, one for Me and 1 for Spouse) Level 2 would be below them, with whatever each individual wished as “sub-collections”.

    Now I should be able to just download my collection to my device and she can download hers, and we can organize them any way we wished. It is just a database of pointers, after all, and it doesn’t make sense to have ALL the books get downloaded to ALL the devices in a household.

    For your consideration. I really enjoy your podcast, Len. Thanks.
