Same here. I always go for the colors!

Nah. It's a fairly standard cover. It's the photography skillz, you know.

As if.

I was too lazy and did everything on Auto. The camera underexposed everything (as expected with a white background), and I batch-fixed it on the computer.

Yeah, I do. And you better come back later and give some more Karma for the pictures post too, if you also want pictures of the other cover I've got coming.

Now, regarding you super-engineering tool: could an old credit card also do the job, or not ?
Maybe, but I think it may be too wide and long. There may be too much friction to actually slide it toward the corner, and it may be too flexible to pop the KPW out of the case. I actually did bend one of the paperclips because I leveraged right at the end.

It may work, if you can cut a small part out of the creditcard; something like a half inch wide, and an inch long. I'm assuming the credit card is thin enough to actually fit between the case and the Kindle.

I advise against using a knife or the blade of a scissors if you're thinking about it. This will work for sure, but you'll probably damage the Kindle or case, even if you wrap it with tape.

You can take the PW out by carefully bending the lower left hand corner of the Googleproduct case away from the kindle, then proceeding with the other corners.

Ah, I see. No problem.

The same will happen with this thread. You know it will :P

I've tried it, and it does work. It also does hurt the thumbs somewhat, and I can imagine that many women are not strong enough in their hands to bend the case without help. At least, there were many posts on the previous thread, of people complaining that the Kindle was impossible to get out of the cover.

Using a pry tool on one corner is easy, and makes the opposite corner also much easier to pop off.

I did tell the seller, yes, and he said he sent out another cover, but it never arrived. He kept telling me to give it another week. In the end, I filed a complaint and got my money back. The seller did apologize and seemed earnest, so maybe it got lost in the mail, I'm really not sure. Either way, it was fine in the end as I got an official amazon case for only 10.00.
I've once ordered a set of three DVD movies in Japan, with a seller that had good ratings. I did not receive them after 6 weeks, so I filed a complaint. He asked if I wanted the movies re-sent, or a refund. I chose a refund.

About 5 months after ordering, the movies suddenly turned up at my doorstep.

I wouldn't be surprised if you get your cover delivered completely unexpectedly, one day.

I am very good with credit cards. Leave yours with me for 10 sec, and I'll do wonders, you won't believe it until you've seen it !

A beginner in what? I just thought to put a warning out. In the past, I've seen some otherwise very smart people do some incredibly stupid things when it comes to using tools(*).




(*) Me, for example. Regularly
And I'm making way too much typo's as well.

LOL. I'm a software engineer. I've *studied*. The upside is that I know computers. The downside is that I'm a basically a nerd, and thus a national safety hazard when getting hold of any tools

Pot, meet kettle

Said Kettle has to wake up early, so I'm calling it a night. For now.

Don't know... depends on the maximum you're talking about.

Computers? No
Chatting in someone else's topic in a way that it would be looked upon as a flirt had we been in a bar? (1) Yeah, probably

Luckily for me, it's weekend tomorrow, and I'm a night owl / insomniac. Hehe

If you let go, it snaps back into place.

Yeah, it's definitely a case. One of extreme off-topicness.

I'm going under cover until that other KPW case arrives

Niiiice! What color do you have it in? Any chance you'd like to post a picture? Is the inside black, like in the video, or grey like in the pics?
