Kindle Software Update 2.5!

Amazon has finally listened to their customers, Amazon Kindle is just an amazing and useful device; actually I consider it to be the most useful gadget ever made.
The new features are awesome, especially the Collections & PDF Zoom; however the other new features like Twitter & Facebook and Popular highlights may push them to charge for wireless connectivity, people are just crazy when it comes to social networking.
The features included in this update are:

  • Collections

  • I love this feature because I have about 103 books of different flavour. Technical, Political, Textbooks, Travel, References and Novels! one thing I hated about the previous version is that I had jump from page into another to get the book I wanted to read. Now, I can just sort them into Collections and make my life easier, especially when my Kindle library is growing faster than I thought as I'm reading more now.
  • Facebook & Twitter Posts

  • I don't see the use of such feature in a Reading device, albeit I'm sure many people will just love it; but let's see, maybe I would want to share a quote on twitter or facebook.
  • Password Protection

  • I purely use Kindle for reading books and never loaded any personal document into it but this is definitely a good addition especially to those who have personal documents on Kindle
    Password protect your Kindle when you're not using it
  • Popular Highlights

  • This is an interesting and useful one, it may get your attention to a page you skipped or something from different perspective but all depends on the user generated content, hopefully we will have smart users.
  • PDF Pan and Zoom

  • Zoom into PDFs and pan around to easily view small print and detailed tables or graphics
  • More Font Sizes & Improved Clarity

  • Enjoy two new larger font sizes and sharper fonts for an even more comfortable reading experience

Enough talking and let me now enjoy my newly updated Kindle 2.
