What info does the Kindle transmit back to Amazon
I've been searching around these forums a bit and saw that the general consensus is that other than documents purchased via Amazon, nothing is tracked or sent back to Amazon. Today I experienced something that makes me wonder otherwise - maybe someone can help explain this.
I have a Kindle 3G. Two days ago my battery was completely charged. Usually the battery will last 2 weeks at least, with the wireless turned on. Yesterday I copied about 1000 PDF files (technical documents I need for work) to my Kindle via USB. This morning when I woke up, my battery was almost dead.
As far as I understand, the main thing that drains the battery on the device is using the wireless connection. The only conclusion I can come to, is that the wireless was working all night long, and doing something for each of the 1000 pdfs on my device. I don't know if it was transmitting statistics, copying files, or what but am trying to figure this out.
Does anyone have any clues as to what is going on here?
