Easier access to "Find in calibre library" function

Dear Koreader users, I am a recent migrant to KOReader, but already feel quite at home here:-) However, there are still a few quirks I am trying to figure out.

Tom Holland Praises Sony’s Original Plan For Spider-Man’s MCU Exit (Even Though He Worked Behind-the-Scenes to Stop It)

As we all know by now, Spider-Man is sticking around in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But there was a hot second there where it looked like the deal between Sony and Marvel had fallen through, and Spidey was going to leave the MCU. Thankfully for fans, it all worked out in the end. But according to current Spider-Man Tom Holland, Spidey’s MCU departure wouldn’t have been such a bad thing.

Photos of the Week - Tokyo, Germany and California abduzeedoFeb 25, 2020 A couple of weeks ago I shared some photos I took last year.

Now that Apple has finally made AirPods that fit in more people's ears, it's time to make the cheaper AirPods fit better too (AAPL)

Apple's earbuds have never fit my ears, but the AirPods Pro do, and they might finally bring solace to anyone else who has had fit difficulties with Apple's entry-level earbuds. The AirPods Pro fit deeper into the ear, and they come with three sizes of rubber tips to accommodate different ear sizes. Unlike with regular AirPods, I can shake my head and they don't fall out.  But the AirPods Pro cost $250, which is a high asking price for a pair of earbuds. Apple should update its cheaper AirPods...

Want vintage audio for your classic vinyl? Here’s what you need to know

Eight years ago, Mikey Weiss had wanted to build a display of vintage stereos at his Brooklyn store – “a museum piece,” he calls it – to show people what stereos looked like in the 1970s. His customers, however, wanted to buy those artifacts. Since then, Weiss has since sold oodles of old school gear, and last September he celebrated the grand opening of the West Coast Branch of Mikey’s Hook Up in Silver Lake. Amidst the stock of 21st-century gizmos, there was, of course, a smattering of vintage...

Despite it actually being a film camera, it's unlikely anyone will ask that about the Vectis.It looks pretty much like a generic digital MILC or Bridge Camera from about ten yea...
