The Kindle Platform
This past Saturday, I hopped on the Metro to meet my Dad for the Wizards vs Celtics basketball game (Wiz Win! Wiz Win! Go home Massholes! Clap, clap, clapclapclap). There’s a pretty long ride from Northern VA into downtown DC. Traveling light, I didn’t bring the Kindle, but I was lamenting it’s absence.
The lightbulb finally went off. I realized that I had my iPhone 4, with the Kindle App installed. Synced my farthest location in Rudy Rucker’s Software and finished it up before I reached the Verizon Center.
Although they really need to let users customize the standby images displayed when the device is “off”. Or at least let you set it to blank. I can only take so many literary giants.
