2. I can't zoom in on figures, to see details, like axis labels on graphs. If the figure was a full letter-size page as a PDF, it becomes a full screen, with microscopic text.

Any ideas how to get around these or improve the readability of scientific/technical literature on PDFs?

About the only thing is to do screen captures on those images and then look at the images outside the environment of the book. MobiPocket supports the idea of zooming an image but I am not sure that is implemented in the Reader however there is an image viewer that you can tap into I believe.
