Amazon now charges per MB for whispernet delivery of own personal content!
Boy, it does look ever worse for the kindle...
from gizmodo.com ( http://gizmodo.com/5233959/kindles-w...y-the-megabyte)
"The way things used to work, a single dime would grant you a Whispernet delivery of anything from a simple JPEG photo to a 120-page manuscript of your Xena: Warrior Princess fanfic novella. Now, Amazon has introduced a progressive payment scale, based on the size of the converted document. It's pretty simple: $0.15 for every megabyte transferred over Whispernet, rounded to the next whole megabyte. In effect, this means that the minimum transfer charge is $0.152
Well I guess it was to be expected...

It certainly looks like Amazon are entering the "screw your customers for as much as we can get before they go elsewhere" phase
