Music for my podcast is from an original Thelonius Monk composition named “Well, You Needn’t.” This version is “Ra-Monk” by Eval Manigat on the “Variations in Time: A Jazz Perspective” CD by Public Transit Recording” CD.

    I am happy that Amazon finally has put in a finer gradation of text sizes! I have been blogging about that for years.

    I like the audible option as well.

    Len! Love your show, so high quality! Can this new Oasis be switched left or right hand? Also I am very happy there is an option for a non leather cover!

    Thanks, Rebecca! Yes, the new Oasis has an accelerometer to switch screen when you flip it for changing hands.

    Excellent informative episode. Thanks. Two things come to mind: one, I read a lot of customer comments on the Amazon site that are complaints about quality control in the Kindles resulting in different light output from individual LEDs. I wonder if Hany or any of the others have talked about quality control as an issue. Two, will the Whispersync application on the new Oasis allow for listening to the Audible version on a separate device, such as an iPhone, and then having the new Oasis text version sync to that? Or does it work that way only if one listens and reads on the same Oasis? Again, thanks for the information and good podcast.

    Thanks Len, and George, good question! I have one more question : can’t Audible purchases be kept in the cloud thus makes it not necessary to have 32 GB?

    It looks as if the average size of an Audible Enhanced Audio file is 28.8 GB, so you’d need the 32 GB just to have on the device.
