Will it be folders??

This from Books on the Knob:

Kindle Customers, We have heard from many of you that you would like to have a better way to organize your growing Kindle libraries. We are currently working on a solution that will allow you to organize your Kindle libraries. We will be releasing this functionality as an over-the-air software update as soon as it is ready, in the first half of next year. - The Kindle Team
Could it be the long awaited folders??

A software update, fancy that. I have had a Cybook for 2 years and have yet to experience a software update. I am so excited.

That's odd - Bookeen have released at least 3 firmware updates for the Gen3 in that time. Why have you not installed them?

Sorry Harry, you are quite correct. It has been raining since Monday and this is supposed to be summer and I am becomiong increasingly negative.

I am fed up with my Gen3 because I still cannot do stuff like delete books and the blasted thing misses every 3rd page change. Now I have a kindle and hear about new functionality on its way my and cynical mood takes over.

Here is a screen shot of Amazon's Customer Service Forum, and you can see that Customer Service did in fact make this announcement.

Amazon Link

They also made the announcement on twitter. Link

Amazon announcing that that they are going to provide folders or tags (or whatever) to manage content -- THIS IS HUGE NEWS!!!

Can we get a "Whoo hoo" or something. Why am I the only one excited?

LOL you're not, I'm pretty excited too, Daithi. I didn't put this on the front page, because I didn't know what the mods would think. If someone wants to move it, that's fine with me. For some reason this tidbit seems to have gotten buried - I ran across it by accident. You would think after all the complaints that Amazon had (just on THIS forum), that they'd be making a big deal out of this.

Bravo, here here, and all that.

Folders/tags/categories is #1 on my (holiday) wish list.

Does anyone have Santa's address? He's an influential person....maybe he could talk to Amazon for a December 25th delivery?
