"Kindle Free Free"?? Whispernet isn't free?

It says almost by the top of the FAQ for the kindle in or wiki (link in this forum) about wireless prices (in short) that
1. every mb of personal documents over whispernet (not wifi) cost $0.15.
2. the browser is free (for now! as it's experimental).
3. "kindle free free" is free (for now, as it's experimental).

I thought whispernet is free?
what's "kindle free free"?

Update
It's "kindle Now Now" (not free free) - whats that??

Whispernet is free for books bought from Amazon. There is a charge for sending personal documents over 3G; WiFi delivery is free.

No idea what "Kindle free free" might be, I'm afraid.

It's worth adding that almost every e-book bought from amazon.com in EU countries without their own Amazon has additional Whispernet charge of $2, even if you use wifi-only device. Luckily this does not apply to most $1,99 deals.

The answer was in that same FAQ.

It was a service kind of like Google Search with a live person doing the searching for you. You'd ask a question via your Kindle and the answer(s) would be sent back to your Kindle.

I think the service was cancelled before the Kindle 2 came out. I tried it a couple of times but it was just easier to get on computer and use a regular Google search.
