Kindle Monthly Lockout

I use the Kindle app to get the books I purchased into Calibre. About once a month Kindle stops syncing and I have uninstall / reboot / reinstall. It appears to be an authentication problem and I see no way to reauthorize my account other than wiping it from the registery and (re)installing the app. Not sure if they're punishing me for using a proxy or violating some Amazon unwritten rule. Anybody figure out how to stop this or at least fix it with less effort(?)

(Project) Drawgress Bar — KUAL extension

Dear MobileRead community, I really miss the old full-scale progress bar. I even wrote feedback to Amazon and asked them to return it. Meanwhile I am waiting for them to take actions, I gathered some thoughts. I hope for your help! Let's finish this together :) Goal: to write a KUAL extension that non-intrusively draws full progress bar line with chapter marks (both level 1 and level 2) on each page turn (every-page turn script example is Showtime). By 'non-intrusive' I mean that it should b...

Reflow language expansion

I am not sure exactly when this happened, but Amazon recently greatly increased the number of languages that support Enhanced Typesetting (KFX format). Internally this is being called "reflow language expansion". I do not have a full list, but it appears that most of the 40 languages supported by KDP now support ET. Most books for sale on Amazon in these languages now show "Enhanced Typesetting: Enabled" in their description. They download in KFX format on e-ink Kindles and the iOS/Android apps ...

Top Five Concealed Carry Myths

Opinion Top Five Concealed Carry Myth USA –-(Ammoland.com)-Here’s a question to make your brain hurt. Are more myths and rumors passed along at the local gun store counter or on the internet? I know, it’s an impossible question. While both sources can provide valuable and reputable information, they are also the leading cause of self-defense and concealed carry trainer angst, frustration, and early onset of male pattern baldness. Carrying a Gun Will Protect You Perhaps the most dangerous c...

Safe or Not to Safe? Which Mechanical Gun Safety is Right for Concealed Carry?

Opinon A 1911 like this new Springfield Armory Range Officer Elite 10mm has a “classic” thumb safety. USA –-(Ammoland.com)- I wonder if everyone who carries a concealed pistol goes through the same mental evolution? When I started to carry, I had a subconscious fear that my gun would go off inadvertently while carrying. While I thought about carrying with an empty chamber, I never went quite that far as I recognized that chambering a round in the heat of a self-defense encounter was not a re...

Troubleshooting Kindle Touch slows down gradually until I restart it

My Kindle Touch slows down gradually over time, so I have to reboot it each week or two. The worst effects of the slowdown are lagging page turns and slow translation (navigation to a dictionary and back). I'm using a dictionary often, so this might be a reason for this behavior. I've found a description of the same symptoms here. My Kindle firmware version: 5.1.2. Jailbreak version: 5.0.3 (installed it years ago). I installed a Russian keyboard years ago (keyboard_alff31_v0.1.0). Suspected t...

Steal This Look: A Grand Scale Double-Height Kitchen in Brooklyn

In an 1850s brick townhouse in Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood, serial renovators Jean Lee and Tzu-Wei Lee called on architect Elizabeth Roberts to rethink the building, which had been divided intwo four apartments, as one. The biggest change? A three-story addition to the back of the building which now houses the fully custom double-height kitchen. The 1,200-square-foot space is inspired by modern Shaker design with an almost Seventies style twist. That’s thanks to beadboard-paneled cabinet...

Verizon Is Testing Its Own Game Streaming Service, Because of Course It Is

2019 is the year of the streaming game…or at least the start of it. NVIDIA has been doing its thing with GeForce Now for a while, Google started testing Project Stream last year, and now Verizon wants in on the action. As reported by The Verge late last week, Verizon has been “quietly testing” its own game streaming service. Interestingly enough, the company is using the NVIDIA SHIELD—arguably one of the best streaming boxes you can buy—for its internal testing. The report also suggests that th...

The Best Privacy Filters For Your Laptop Screen

Whether you’re using your laptop for work or entertainment in a public space, you want to keep prying eyes away. But you don’t have to sit in the corner of the room, all you need is a privacy filter. In 2015, 3M and Ponemon did a study on “visual hacking,” a method where hackers obtain usernames, passwords, and other sensitive information by watching people’s computer screens from across the room. It turns out that the low-tech method of “visual hacking” is extremely successful, and visual ha...

On the Smugglers’ Radar

“On The Smugglers’ Radar” is a feature for books that have caught our eye: books we have heard of via other bloggers, directly from publishers, and/or from our regular incursions into the Amazon jungle. Thus, the Smugglers’ Radar was born. Because we want far more books than we can possibly buy or review (what else is new?), we thought we would make the Smugglers’ Radar into a weekly feature – so YOU can tell us which books you have on your radar as well! On Ana’s Radar: First up, a bo...

Make 3 Cents and Get Three FREE Ebooks.

First E-Book Reader

Hello everyone! I've started reading books again and decided that I need an E-Book Reader. I'm probably going to be a simple user, as for web browsing and work I have a laptop. This reader would be dedicated only for reading books. I'm mostly interested in a reader that could handle PDF's (not main priority) and read Kindle or ePub books. As I find most of the books I want to read both on Amazon and Kobo so it's not necessary to support both formats. Another crucial feature I need is English-En...

Funko – Pop! Candy: Peeps

I grew up on Peeps - almost literally. I lived a few miles from the spot where Peeps are produced, by Just Born Inc., in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. So, these marshmallow candies were always a favorite of mine (the key is to let them get stale). Of course, if they are popular in pop culture...it's likely Funko will fit their into their Pop! lineup. Hence...the Pop! Candy: Peeps . The Pink Bunny and Yellow Bunny are standard releases, while the Blue Bunny is a FYE Exclusive and the Lavender Bunny...

But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.Frances Welty, the formerly best-selling romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House nursing a ...

Don’t Bother With USB-C Headphones (For Now)

The headphone jack is fast disappearing from high-end phones and even bigger devices like the new iPad Pro. So it’s time to head out and get a decent pair of USB-C headphones, right? Not so fast. Unlike the accommodating analog port that’s been around for decades, getting audio out of a USB-C port alone requires a little digital finagling. And that’s a problem, because digital formats are more complex, and all too often incompatible. While there are a few sets of headphones on the market w...
