The issue is precisely the jumps.
It's not about having 50 or 100 sizes, but of having the *one* size you want.
Precisely THIS!!

I like the default settings on my Kindle 4. I've never changed the font, size, margins, line spacings, etc; and never did it with the K3 and Sony 300. Default works for me.

Good for you. Others like to play with things more then some of us do. I would be happy if Amazon added the fonts that work well for people with dyslexia. That would actually make me very happy.

Maybe I will email Jeff Bezos...

Improving accessibility with something as simple as that is definitely a worthwhile goal. I'd certainly support it. Send the email; you have nothing to lose

Personally, I'd be satisfied with kerning and leading options, a view-as-columns option, a live equation editor, several hundred fonts and the ability to add drop caps.

And I'm only half kidding!

i mean do these people ever read forums and understand what we want or do they surround themselves with brown nosers and [obscenity deleted - MODERATOR] telling them how great they are???

do they ever the use the devices at length?

how can we meet with these "executives?

would they even talk to a commoner?

what are their names?


i think it about time we contacted the hines and tell them exactly we want and get them to make a device which does everything.

it would be multilayer ed and an infinite options for adjustment and open source and even a way of custom designing a ereader for everyone.

the way it would work they would custom design it your satistaction if you can get another 9 people with you...
