Cool The Hitchhiker's Kindle to the Galaxy


Hasn't anyone noticed the similarities?

The kindle. And the hitchhiker's guide.
We should make them one!

Has someone ever done a physical hack to make the kindle look like a guide?

I had a sticker on the cover of my K4 that said "Don't Panic!" When I got my Paperwhite, though, I gifted that cover to my cousin.

Smile Lets go physical.

Guys. I meant a physical hack. You know, like custom skins or covers. Or actual lights in the back the kindle telling you not to panic. Hasn't anyone done that?
Anyways, Love the screensavers guys!

I guess you missed this? Or maybe it doesn't count for some reason?

My friends and I have noticed this similarity and so have started to write a guide however we're having problems with the formatting of the document so searches are title only and page breaks however here it is

I've always thought kindles were not unlike the P.A.D.D. of Star Trek. Especially now that I have a Paperwhite and a fully touch screen operated one.
