Easy content-sharing to your Kindle

Some years ago, Amazon made my blog available as a subscription option for Kindle users. It would cost you 99 pence a month; in return, you’d get all my content delivered to your Kindle device (or Kindle app on your PC, smartphone or tablet) as it was published. Amazon’s now introduced something perhaps more interesting – a ‘send to Kindle’ button for websites that lets you share specific content to your Kindle rather than get everything including things that might not interest you. And all for free. The ‘send to Kindle’ button is very much in alignment with the content-sharing concept that’s everywhere on the web these days, notably with the one-click sharing buttons for Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Digg, […]

Now, add Tesco to the list as this huge display I saw today at a Tesco Extra store in Reading illustrates. The price of the Kindle in Tesco is exactly the same as the price at Amazon. The advantages, then, of buying it in Tesco are: You get it immediately No delivery costs You get Clubcard points as well The […]

Subscribe to this blog with your Amazon Kindle

Do you use an Amazon Kindle, the wireless reading device launched in the US by Amazon in November 2007? If you do, I’m pleased to let you know that this blog, NevilleHobson.com, is now available in the Kindle store where you can subscribe and so have all the content with you wherever you use your Kindle (still no sign of the Kindle yet in the UK, though, nor anywhere else outside the US). The availability of my blog in the Kindle store is made possible by my relationship with Newstex – a news syndication service I’ve been involved with for the past few years which syndicates the content of my blog to mainstream media and other outlets – who got […]
