and.... would you mind if i ask you a few questions regarding the special offers? some questions (most of them
) are silly and very noob questions, but its really confused me
here we go
1. can i use amazon gift card as a payment for this offer "Pay $10 for $20 Amazon Gift Card"?
2. for the audible promo, this catches my eyes: "free daily subscription to The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal"
does it mean that i can get 6 months subscription with just $6? can it delivered to a customer who lived outside US? Can it delivered to computer?
3. does audiobooks have texts like a normal ebook in addition to audio? so we can read along with the spoken words?
how do we navigate from section to section? is it possible to convert an audiobooks to mp3 so i can listen it with my mobile phone?
i've never experienced audio books before and i've googled but so far it seems that i cant find the answers i lookin for
4. does the newest offer which is originally for kindle 3G can be applied for kindle 3 wifi as well? its really tempting
, sorry for bothering
Thanks and you're not bothering. We're here to help. So, welcome to the group; hope you enjoy it.
1- not sure if you can use a gift card that way. You have nothing to lose by trying it.
2- that subscription is for an audio version of the papers, not print versions. Basically, it's a podcast. I haven't tried it yet and doubt I will, so I don't know the details about delivery. Like koland
mentioned, these offers are only valid in the US.
3- audiobooks generally don't come with ebooks. There might be an exception every now and then. Pretty much anything can be converted from one format to another. Whether it's legal depends on the circumstances.
Generally, audiobooks come in three formats: MP3, WMA, and Audible. Most MP3 players support all three formats. Smartphones support MP3 and with an app, can support Audible. I believe only Windows phones can support WMA; not certain though, because I don't own a smartphone.
Public libraries mostly use WMA, with a small minority of their books in MP3. Apple devices can play WMA after a conversion that takes place during the download process.
I love audiobooks and they're easy to do.
4- I believe these offers will be the same for both WiFi and 3G versions of the KSO. We'll know for sure when the next offer appears.
Hope I answered everything. If you have more questions, feel free to ask. And again, welcome aboard.
