Amazon has posted a preview version of a new 3.1 firmware update for the Kindle, which will bring some of its most requested features. Now you will finally have the option of real page numbers that match those from the paper edition and markers give students the ability to refer back to the real page if they follow along in class. Both are very handy features.
Book notes can also now be made public. This creates a social aspect that lets a book club or friends see what others have said about a title. That should make Oprah happy anyway. There’s also a new layout for magazines and newspapers to provide a better overview and a way to quickly jump to an article. Also, when you reach the end of a book, you will get the option to rate it at that time.
