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.

Rules of war (in a nutshell)

https://youtu.be/HwpzzAefx9M Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864, and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected.
