Kindlebility sends Web pages from your computer to your Kindle

Kindlebility is a bookmarklet that can send any Web page you're viewing to your Kindle. Kindlebility will format the websites so that viewing them on the Kindle isn't a pain. Once you've set it up (more on that in a moment), Kindlebility only requires one click to use -- and the pages arrive on your Kindle in seconds. Before you use Kindlebility for the first time, you have to quickly set it...

Kindle for iOS updated with real page numbers and new progress indicators

Amazon's Kindle eBook app for iOS devices just got an update to version 2.6, which adds some minor (but useful!) features. You can now view the actual page numbers of thousands of Kindle books -- which correspond to the physical editions -- making it easier to cite passages or jump from screen to paper without losing your place. And speaking of finding your place in a book, Kindle for iOS 2.6...

Kindle, Skype, and Time magazine subscriptions coming to webOS devices

Besides the previously-unseen webOS 3.0 and introducing new hardware in the form of a tablet and two smartphones, HP had some other gems under its sleeves at today's Think Beyond event.

We now know the TouchPad will get an official Amazon Kindle application, that,...

Kindle update brings real page numbers, public notes, and new magazine layout

The latest generation Amazon Kindle e-book reader is about to receive a software update over-the-air that will add quite a few interesting features. Chief among those is what's probably been the most requested feature from Kindle owners: real page numbers.

Kindle e-books now out-selling paperbacks

Last year we saw e-books outsell their hardback counterparts, but another arguably more important milestone has just been passed: e-books now outsell all paperback books on Amazon. Now for every 100 paperbacks Amazon sells, 115 e-books are sold, making e-books the most popular book format available. That number excludes the free and out of copyright e-books that Amazon distributes too, otherwise...

Amazon announces Kindle app for Android and Windows Tablets

Amazon has announced that it will release a Kindle app for Android and Windows-based tablets later this year.

Amazon Kindle lending lets you share e-books

Amazon announced back in October that its Kindle e-reader platform would allow users to lend books to one another "by the end of the year."

Amazon unveiling new, better Kindle Web app tomorrow

When we first got a look at Amazon's Kindle Web app, it wasn't too exciting -- the embeddable viewer offered only one-chapter glimpses at select titles.

The new Kindle for the Web will compete directly with Google's new eBookstore, which just launched in the U.S....

Amazon announces Kindle book lending feature

Well, it's no Amazon Library, but the Kindle e-book platform will soon let users lend books to one another for a limited amount of time. You'll be able to loan out a book for up to 14 days at a time, and you won't be able to read the book while a friend is borrowing it. Not all books will support lending, though.
