The Cleverbot AI also works remarkably well on Kindle 3 (not so much on Kindle 2). But note that you have to use proper punctuations and avoid thos nastee tyipos,. If you don't, Cleverbot will get confused.

In short, it means you will reap what you sow. In our country, the law of karma is considered unbreakable.

That's what I can find on my laptop for now. As I run across more I will post them and hope all of you reading will do the same.

you can also use amazon to convert pdfs for you. if you use the username@free.kindle.com
and just put "convert" in the title they will convert it to amazon format for you and all you need to do is be connected to wifi for it to sync after it is converted.

they did a lot better at converting a double column pdf i had.

The three blogs that I check daily are:

Amazon's Kindle Blog -- this is the same as the "Kindle Daily Post" item in the Kindle Storefront page in the Kindle itself. Using my browser means I don't have to turn on the Kindle's antenna just to see what Amazon might be promoting.

The Kindle Reader -- an almost daily posting with links to books for the Kindle. Most links are to Amazon, but sometimes to MobileRead or other sources for books.

Books on the Knob -- the site says "Bargain reads, book reviews, the Amazon Kindle and some games, technology and computers tossed in now and then."
The link for "Amazon's Kindle Blog" is dead. Being a newbie do you have an updated link? Take care.

I use kindlemap.net a lot on my Kindle 2. It has a section with buttons for all the navigation stuff, and it puts the google map inside that so you can use it. One day at work I was showing it to someone who had a Kindle 3, and the whole navigation section is missing on the Kindle 3. We could not figure out how to navigate it on the Kindle 3 without that navigation section showing up. Hopefully someone can figure out why.

Getting zoomed sat images on the free kindle browser is a killer app.
