I'm pleased by the addition of the rapid highlighting feature. Disappointed that there's still no way to copy text. Haven't tried playing with the brightness settings (can't detect a difference so far).
Overall, not bad.
You might be correct, but I find it difficult to believe that more people complained about the margins being too small than those complaining about margins being too big. For many years lots of people have complained about the large margins and Amazon never listened, I kind of doubt they would suddenly listen to a few who complained the margins were too small. I personally think the Kindle Team at Amazon are way too much like the a$$holes at Apple in that they have this view that you get what they give you and they know better than you what you want and need.
