The 2.5 software update for Kindle, Kindle 3 and Kindle DX is coming soon. Amazon is rolling out the new software update to first a limited group of Kindle users and plan a broad release in late May 2010. I shall update you all the goodies of this update once I got my Kindle upgraded.
Here’s a list of the coming enhancements:
Collections: Organize your books and documents into one or more collections.
PDF Pan and Zoom: Zoom into PDFs and pan around to easily view small print and detailed tables or graphics.
Password Protection: Password protect your Kindle when you’re not using it.
More Fonts & Improved Clarity: Enjoy two new larger font sizes and sharper fonts for an even more comfortable reading experience.
Facebook & Twitter Posts: Share book passages with friends on Facebook and Twitter directly from your Kindle.
Popular Highlights: See what the Kindle community thinks are the most interesting passages in the books you’re reading.
I can imagine I will use the second enhancement a lot …
I knew the M.Zuiko 9-18 zoom lens is small, lightweight. But not until I held it in my hand, I didn’t realize how freakingly small and lightweight it is. Once I mounted it in my Olympus PEN E-P1 and I immediately recognized that it’s the perfect lens I would use all the time … for landscape and travel photos as well as for snapshots. The focusing is fast, zooming is smooth and it is a very quiet zooms lens.
Will certainly take many more pictures in the days to come, but for now some sample snapshots.
