My Kindle won't be here till December. Hoping we can fix a few obvious bugs being advertised as features. You've got a device with Linux on it that's online 24/7, it shouldn't be hard to do many cool things with it.
Patching the OS wouldn't change this. You would need to patch the application that is doing the MP3 playing.
It looks like Audible is only a foreground application so you can't read a book while listening to it. Too bad for those using the device to pick up a second language.
