Help: Kindle Software Updates

Posted: May 4, 2010 in Uncategorized

Now I know the Kindle isn’t an iPad but, I still love it just the same and I don’t own and iPad. This looks to be a very significant update and am looking forward to it. I am loving the social aspect of the update. Being able to share quotes from the books with my friends and family on both Twitter and Facebook is going to be very fun. Thanks Amazon for keeping the Kindle relevant for me and making my reading experience that much more enjoyable.
