None of those at WOOT have lights. But I think its great pricing for them!
Due to the DRM going to KFX these are going to go fast. It's a great deal for those who want to back up their books once the old method stops working.

Keeping an older Kindle right now is a smart move.

The new format means you can't strip DRM and change to epub/back up your copy, etc. Many people don't do that so it is not a big deal. Those who want to can do a "backup" by downloading to these devices that are on sale.

And if you've never ordered using the Woot App, you can get an extra $10 coupon good on a future Woot purchase more than $25. I HAVE ordered from the App, but still am trying it anyway since I want an older Kindle for futureproofing. It has been a very long time since I used the Woot App, and I'm sort of hoping I'll get the coupon anyway. Probably won't, but fingers crossed...

I originally had this from an email, but here's a link to a webpage: http://www.woot.com/blog/post/buy-so...-in-it-for-you

Is the book then simply backed up on the device, or is it possible to move the book to a computer and strip the DRM from that transferred file (rather than using the K4PC downloaded version)? I don't mind getting a K4 as a backup but I want to be sure I understand what purpose it serves.

Thanks.

It is a copy of the book. HOWEVER, I have seen that the older devices download the older version of the book -- so old techniques would work on it. But I have not done this myself. Probably see the alf thread.

I know the last upload I did (for Eclair...so that would be Oct-ish timeframe) I was highly encouraged by Amazon do support the new format. I chose to stick with tried-and-true mobi. There are a lot of reasons I loathe changing to new formats and DRM is probably the least of it. When I can, I choose "no drm" for my books, but that sort of thing isn't very clear with each vendor. When they introduce a new format, it's up to me to go figure out if there are any real benefits to me or the reader.

Thanks, that gives me a little more to go on. After some research it looks like my KK already does everything I would need this sale-priced Kindle to do.

Not to mention the battery is replaceable on the KK. I won't get rid of mine either.

Problem folks may run into is that the Older Kindles May Not Open the newer Formats.

For backup and "disinfection" purposes, that's a feature, not a problem.

It's best to ask this in the tools thread where more knowledgeable folks are.
