Cool Review about Kindle and Calibre, and how ebooks make you smarter faster

I've been using the Kindle and Calibre for a while now. In the review link beneath my signature, I point out Calibre doesn't support section breaks which messes up the layout and how ebook features make learning more effecient than regular books.

Cheers,

I noticed how you described Calibre as
Quote:
[...] a free reader for the big three computer platforms[...]
which is just wrong. Calibre is an ebook management program that comes with a reading program, it's not a reading program per se.

can anyone comment if they’ve purchased a book in the Kindle store and then viewed it with Calibre?)
You cannot unless you remove the DRM....

It is interesting that I've run into people who use it:
only as reading program,
only as a format converter,
only as an ebook database,
only to serve books to their phone via the internet, and
only to create ebooks from RSS feeds.

It reminds me of that story about the elephant and the 5 blind men.
