There are differences in definitions and presentation. They also have a completely separate corpora. I prefer Merriam Webster over Oxford, but only because I have been using Merriam dictionaries for most of the time. I am sure they're both good in their own way.

I'm sure you're right, Tad. It was the comment by the previous poster that Oxford had more complicated spellings that interested me. I would have thought that spelling would be consistent between dictionaries.

So if Apple wants to stiff Amazon for 30% that still leaves the a$$holes with 40%, which is more than the publisher/author gets. That is really darn good money for Amazon considering they don't do a darn thing to earn it other than allow the author to list their books. (Well at least in my case, I think I get about 30$ from the sales.)
The royalty is 70% for publishers who price their books between 2.99 and 9.99, at least 20 percent cheaper than the lowest physical list price, available in all regions the author has rights, has full kindle store capabilities(like text to speech), and no more expensive than it is in other stores. For books that don't meet that criteria, the royalty is 35% minus delivery costs (15 cents per megabyte, always rounded up).

Has anyone been able to sideload AZW3/MOBI files in the recent Kindle for iPad versions? For some reason I can't get it to work anymore.

These are the limitations I'm seeing:
- KF8 reflowable format is not enabled for side loaded or Personal Documents content
- KF8 fixed-layout does work when side loaded or from PDocs
- 'Open In..' functionality (open from DropBox/Google Drive etc) is broken on iPhone but works on iPad

What's with the new update? Whew! I was thinking about a decrease in lag and increase of smoothness.

Kindle version 3.9.2 released

Amazon just released version 3.9.2. It is a fix for iOS 7 issue that can cause you to have to re-register and re-download your books from Amazon. They highly recommend installing this update before you upgrade to iOS 7.
