Kobo Forma vs Kindle Oasis 2. Limitations on connectivity?

Hello, I was really happy with my PW2, but it has been stolen, so I'm about to buy a new one. I spend 2 hours reading every day, so I don't mind spending a little bit more and improving my reading experience. I liked the portability of PW2, but from comments in internet I've decided to buy a bigger screen. I own a Kindle DX myself, but I find it too heavy. However, Oasis 2 and Kobo Forma seem to be much lighter and more compact. I was about to buy an Oasis 2, when I saw in a video on Youtube ...

Oasis 2 Battery

The Oasis 2 battery is worse than my 11 inch iPad battery. Sometimes I read on iPad during day to save battery on kindle. Is there anyway to see if something is wrong with my kindle battery or if this is just the downside to oasis 2? I read kindle oasis at night with light set at 1, had it for year and battery has always been this bad, I love the device but poor battery makes we not want to use it.

AWZ(3) vs KFX

Hello folks Ive been a Calibre user for years and used EPUB until now. Got myself an Oasis, and thought ill better covert some 5k book to mobi (some are already in movie and epub format). Have read read loads and loads of MOBI vs AWZ vs AWZ3 vs KFX - jee , I am more confused than I was when I started. I want to have the best possible option, not too bothered about size etc. Also thought of getting rid of all the other formats, as I doubt Ill ever use an iPad again to read, after the Oasis ...

2018’s 50 Best Albums: An Apocalypse Survival Guide

While it’s safe to say most of us want to forget all about 2018, there are hundreds of incredible albums by stellar artists across the complete spectrum of genres that are worthy of soundtracking your 2019 and beyond.

Found an excellent Oasis cover I got this in red leather and just love it. It compliments the champagne gold. It has a small sticker that helps the magnet stay in place. Makes my Oasis look real classy and thin and makes the back even with that thick edge or what ever you call it so it feels better in your hand when you read

Send web articles to Kindle without losing author's name

Hi, I frequently use the "Push to Kindle" Chrome plugin and Android app to send articles from the internet to my kindle (2nd gen Oasis). I'm not talking about PDFs, just webpages with text. Unfortunately, although the article text comes through great, the author's name never does. And I frequently want to know who the authors are when I turn to reading the articles on my Kindle. Does anyone know of tools (for Chrome and Android) that will send articles to the Kindle, while retaining author names...

Amazon finally made a new Oasis cover!

Kudos to the ebook reader blog, which is where I found this info. Link to black fabric cover: Incredibly, amazon had a 'used' red fabric cover available for pre-order, which was only $10! So I snapped it up at that price. Not sure why they had a 'used' one (it was the only one, sorry), perhaps it was used in testing or something. Anyway, it’s 'used' and 'like new', so I thought it was w...

Kindle Paperwhite 2018 review: A more premium e-reader at the right price (ars technica)

Valentina Palladino The $249 Kindle Oasis injected a lot of change into Amazon's e-reader lineup when it came out in 2016. It was the first to deviate from the standard slab design, and it became the first waterproof Kindle when it was updated one year later. It quickly gained the ability to play Audible audiobooks as well, making it a one-stop shop for all reading endeavors in almost any environment. But the Kindle Oasis was, and still is, the most expensive e-re...

The Masterplan Turns 20

"The 'masterplan' was first mentioned in Noel's flat," recalls original Oasis drummer Tony McCarroll in Oasis: The Truth, his memoir. The occasion McCarroll describes took place not long after the band was discovered by Creation Records boss Alan McGee in 1993. He writes that one day before practice he was over at lead guitarist and … More »

odd page turning

Not sure if this is related to the new firmware, but my Oasis 2's page turning looks a bit weird for about 20 page turns or so after waking the device up. Seems to have an extra glitchy flash in the process. It's very quick, but it's noticeably different, not the normal clean fade-to-black-then-new-page look of E-ink. The text on the page also appears "weaker" until the problem clears out... less black/contrasty. Anyone else notice something like this?

Short review of Forma

Got this today and have been playing with it for the last 3 hours or so. In my opinion this is the best e-reader available to date for people that want a bigger screen and light weight and don't need note taking. I've been using a Kobo Aura One and my wife uses an Oasis. The Forma feels lighter, seems to look better (seems like better contrast than the Aura One) responds quicker and the lighting looks great at least on the one I got. I had been worried that there might be issues with the lig...

Liam Gallagher Live Tweets Listening To Radiohead: “How The Fuck Did These Teds Get Big”

Last night, Liam Gallagher listened to Radiohead. He wasn't a fan. The former Oasis singer has talked shit about Radiohead before -- "Them writing a song about a fucking tree? Give me a fucking break!" -- and last night, he went on a lengthy, late-night, nigh-incomprehensible tweetstorm about the band. "The rapping in … More »

Has anyone owned the Oasis and the Voyage?

I currently own the Paperwhite 3 and am trying out an Oasis 2. The main thing I like about the Oasis 2 is its screen quality. The lightning is so much more even and slightly less blue. Despite both being 300 ppi, the Oasis 2 text looks less blurry, I'm guessing due to the glass screen versus the plastic screen on the Paperwhite 3. Anyway, I see the new Paperwhite will have a flush screen that some articles today say is glass. This had me wondering if this will make it look as nice as the Oasis ...

Ready Player One – What’s real is REal

Have you ever walked a home the second time with a client and it just all clicks? Perhaps on the first showing day you all liked the home, it struck a chord but your client hadn’t really let themselves fall just yet. Tense, nervous energy was clouding what was otherwise obvious. You return for that second showing after hammering the pavement to explore all of the potential winners. You pop open that blue lockbox, turn the key and gently usher your clients forward. The noise from weeks of search...

What are the chances of Oasis 2 having red lights?

Hi, I'm asking because I just learned that the Kindle (no light) and the Oasis 1 didn't have Audible support at launch and only got it after almost 2 years with an update. With the PW4 (hopefully) launching this week, if it got a form of bluelight filter option, will Amazon release a new Oasis to match this, let the Paperwhite have it even if its flagship doesn't have it, or just push an update to the Oasis 2 to activate a form of bluelight filter?

Let’s start some Kindle rumors!

With the forthcoming Kobo Forma on its way, surely Amazon must do something in response. I think the current Kindle Oasis 7” can hold its own against the Forma. However, the Paperwhite seems ripe for a refresh. Here is my wish list of features to add:8GB storage Flush screen like Voyage and Oasis Bluetooth audio Same CPU/GPU as Oasis (faster, supports Invert Black and White) Supports external keyboard or simple page turn device (via Bluetooth), keyboard shortcuts for navigation, X-ray, Search,...

Kobo’s Forma e-reader takes on Kindle Oasis with an asymmetric design and premium price

Kobo’s latest e-reader is a complete about-face from its anonymous, cheap, and highly practical Clara HD; the Forma is big, expensive, and features a bold — not to say original — design. It’s clearly meant to take on the Kindle Oasis and e-reader fans for whom price is no object. The $280 Forma joins a number of other e-readers in using a one-handed design, something which is, we might as admit up front, isn’t for everyone. That said, I’ve found that my reading style on these devices has been ab...
