What Kobo reader should I buy?

Here are my list of criterion for what I want: 1. Must be able to export notes onto my computer. 2. Must be able to use the built-in dictionary for any Kindle books I want to export onto it. 3. This one is slightly optional, but I heard PDFs can't use the dictionary. Would like a workaround for this. I'm not sure how customization works or how it affects the different readers so I am asking here.

New to Forum but not to Kindle

Hi from Down-under and a Happy New Year to all. Two days ago I upgraded my old series 4 Kindle to a new Touch unit.

Hello there was no Documents folder showing in Windows Explorer. Okay, assuming I had to create one I decided to just drop my back-up copy to the Kindles root. Appeared to copy across fine BUT n...

How to Disable Ad Banners on Firefox’s New Tab Page

Mozilla just “experimented” with advertisement banners for Booking.com, a hotel reservation website, on Firefox’s New Tab page. Here’s how to disable all those banners so you never see any of these ads in the future. A Mozilla spokesperson told VentureBeat that this “was not a paid placement or advertisement,” and was “an experiment to provide more value to Firefox users through offers provided by a partner.” Who does Mozilla think they’re fooling? Anyway, if you don’t want to see these advert...

If you live your life on iOS, then the chances are pretty good that you never really know when an image is in the HEIC or JPG formats because, for the most part, it doesn’t matter.
