Any hint of a coming Vox firmware update?

Any of you 'insiders' here to advise of a landing date? It would be a nice way to divert the January 'blahs'. Yes, indeed!

A waiting Vox owner.

We don't comment on features still under development since we may change direction at any time. Rest assured we're working on some cool additions to Vox that should be available in the coming weeks.

Best,

Fingers crossed on some of the nice features from the Touch making it over to the Vox. (Hint: Please, please, please integrate the dictionary and annotations/highlighting better and integrate PDF support.)

Not sure how popular this feature is, but I am hoping to get the Facebook Timeline sync in the new update.

Been testing it on the iOS app I like it

Any update/new features are always welcome

Personally, I don't use Facebook myself - don't trust 'em -privacy issues!
Nothing personal, Paul, but I think most people underestimate the seriousness of revealing too much about themselves online. Online is forever!

Most people are under-reacting to this and I suppose they'll have to see their financial details, medical records and sexual history and preferences online before they finally react!

Fully understand what you are saying on privacy (somethings I dont mind, record of books read etc is no issue)

aslong as I have some control over it, i dont mind (can easily go to FB and delete something if I dont want people to see it)

I use Facebook for fun, I dont record all my life history in it (some is there)

I do like to see options for these things, so people can easily not use them, and I refuse to log into websites with my FB id, If I want to link will do it manualy

Really hope that one of the additions will be the ability to read library books which here are PDF's without having to download and ereader application. Downloaded Aldiko but then my Vox crashed so have not done so again. I am not very computer saavy so want something that I don't have to fiddle with. Just load the books like I do with the Touch.

Marbles, here is an interm solution for reading PDFs:

Still, an integrated solution would be much, much better.

Given that the Kobo Touch sends pretty much everything you do to Google (via Google Analytics), I'll bet the Vox is doing the same (especially since it's Android). Facebook's privacy invasion is nothing by comparison.

Yewww!
I don't like the sound of that, Gumby!
Is there any way I can turn it off?

Looks like they are referring to this:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=162713

The solution is to edit your hosts file so GA is blacklisted. This requires root of course.

[edit]: I just checked mine and whatever ad blocking program I had installed had already blocked two of the three addresses so I manually added the third. Normally I don't care about being tracked by GA but that's at the website level. I don't think it's right that kobo is using this to track "in device" actions.
