Yeah, of course I could. I just "print to pdf" many articles throughout the day. Was trying to eliminate the extra step. For me, it would be great to streamline the process down to dragging a file to a folder on my computer and having it automatically appear on my kindle.

I mean, I could also print the files on my laser printer that's 2 feet away, but this is the developer's corner and we're trying to find new solutions.

If your Kindle is connected to your PC via USB, that's exactly what you would be doing, of course.

I understand what you're saying, but sometimes the "low-tech" solutions really are the most practical.

If Amazon does launch a European/British Kindle with wifi - this model might be hackable in the US to do just this - access an online storage site and sync with your Kindle!

I usually prefer to read my books in cuneiform, but the release schedule is rather slow.
