Both my folders AND files use spaces in their names. Is the space issue related to the kernel of Linux used or is it the problem with the proprietary distro used to operate the PP? Has it been suggested to Astak to have bookmarks work with folders and files with spaces in their names?

You know what, I'm still having issues with it connecting to my PC. It still takes a few retries before Windows takes it smoothly. And for some reason, it hates my left front case USB port.


I showed it off to my sister last night and she's never seen one in person, so she was entranced by it for a while. The only thing she wished it had was a full-qwerty thumboard for annotations. Gave her a whole spiel on the other readers and warned her away from the Kindle (largely due to practices by Amazon). Once she heard the Kindle didn't have a SD card slot, though, she basically reconsidered buying it as a gift. I think it'll be harder to convince her to buy one for herself considering she doesn't read as much anymore.

I did take it with me to class yesterday and sat on the train with it. Very enjoyable. Love not having to hold open a paperback, accidentally tearing a page, or forgetting to bookmark a page. No more strong pungent paper smells either (or dust from older books). So many other things that makes it more convienent than a paperback (or hardcover).

I've noticed the last 5 or so ebooks I bought over the last week, I can get them (after coupons) for cheaper than Amazon carries them for and in ePub format. Though when it comes down to it, Amazon's pricing is really competitively low. I just wish they offered DRM'd ePub instead of DRM'd AZW (which only the Kindles can read).
