Gamers with Jobs reviews Amazon’s Kindle.
Now that Jess has finished vampire romance novel number 324, I spend some quality time goofing around with the Kindle. It’s surprisingly easy to get non-Amazon material on it. I just plug it in to the USB cable which perpetually hangs off the back of my laptop, and it shows up as a hard drive. I drop .txt and .mobi files into the “Book” folder and they show up. I convert a handful of PDFs to .mobi files using Mobi Creator and they work perfect, Tables of Contents and all. Sweet.
Earlier I blogged about the skeptical reviews on Amazon’s site,
but the knowledge that I can read student papers or classic literature
on this thing makes me much happier. The price is too much for me,
