If you are committed to your DXG and are adventurous/technically minded, check out the Developer's Corner in the Kindle Forum - the folks there have developed a lot of "hacks" - some trying to install K3 firmware on the DXG to improve its capabilities - I haven't followed closely - but it may become the only option if manufacturers abandon large screen eInk reader development in favor of tablets.

Undocumented fixes

I don't know if anyone else has spotted these yet, but I've noticed two undocumented improvements in the 3.4 Kindle Keyboard firmware update:

(1) the dictionary preview window is now three lines instead of two (making it like the newer Kindle models)

(2) when the page header is shown, only whole words appear in longer titles (instead of truncating the last one), so what used to (regrettably) shows as "The Lucifer Effect: Understanding Ho ..." now shows as "The Lucifer Effect: Understanding ..."

Very glad to see both of these.

Rob

Thanks for the info, but I will let it be. I have no complaints with it, plus I got an email from Amazon yesterday saying that an update was in the pipeline but not as yet close. If it had a bug that needed fixing I might be a bit more concerned.
