"Amen, Susan. I am having the same problems with hung/crashing apps since 5.0 upgrade on my first gen Nexus 7 (32GB) tablet. Hopefully folks are working on fixes. (I have submitted trouble tickets to both Google & app maintainers.) "

"I don't know what planet Paul St John lives on, but I have had nothing but problems with multiple apps and functions. Much like Susan's experience. I have wiped the cache many times just to read my email after rebooting. Help Nexus 7 is tanked and can't get up. Lollipop SUCKS!!! "

"Thanks Chris, I just wanted to double check because I was being a bit cautious. "

"well, I'm glad it doesn't suck for you, but I've had awful problems with my Nexus 7 since downloading the update. It runs slowly, some apps don't run at all, and since I downloaded Lollopop, I had to re-start to tablet to get it to run properly at least three times a day. Until a bug fix comes out, I've completely stopped using my tablet. Here's an example. I got an email from work and ..."

"To Greg M: You say, "Do you have a tolerance or bad spelling, grammar, or formatting?" How about if you check your own writing before you criticize anyone else's? If you still don't get it — and I won't be surprised if you don't — shouldn't "or" be "for"? As for self-published books, some of the best books I have ever read were self-published including "Looking Out for Number 1" by Robert J. Ringer. Incidentally, it sold several million copies ..."

"Attach the e-book file to an email? (Presumably you, as author or publisher, have had it given to you.) They're really not that big. You could zip up all available formats together and it will still be small enough for almost any email system to cope. "

"Have you tried side-loading your books using the email functionality in Calibre that I mentioned (with the setting tweak so it doesn't take forever to transmit something)? I'm just wondering if that makes things easier, as I haven't received the update on my Kindle yet. "

"How would I go about sending an electronic review or giveaway copy if the book is on pre-order or not online? "

James Jean-Pierre on "Sending e-books as review copies - Posted on November 21, 2014


"As a reader, maybe I should produce my own Infographic. Something along the lines of: Do you have lots of time to spend looking at samples to find one good book among 10,000? Do you have a tolerance or bad spelling, grammar, or formatting? Do you believe self-published authors giving other self-published authors' books five star reviews are genuine? Do you value bargin prices over quality? Will you live long enough to read all the good book already published? If ..."

"Amazon seems to be making Kindles more and more complicated. That's one reason I remain happy with my Kindle 3. It does the job without a lot of bother. One tragedy of all this featuritis is that Kindles (and epaper readers from others) remain something that's too fragile, too costly, and too complicated for those who need most to be exposed to reading—grade school kids. Kids need epaper readers designed just for them. "

"@Joanna, it really is a great little case. At $10 US, not sure there's much of a "deal" I can swing. :) Just checked. It is available in Canada for $17 of your dollars. "

Juli Monroe on "Review: Inateck Kindle Paperwhite Case - Posted on November 21, 2014


"Thanks for the review, Juli! It sounds like I might want one of these. I have been using the case which my sister had on the Paperwhite when she gave it to me, but it's a little bulky and the design on it goes on the sides of the Kindle. This one sounds like it will 'blend in' better. Can you get me a deal? :) "

Joanna Cabot on "Review: Inateck Kindle Paperwhite Case - Posted on November 21, 2014


"The case of illiteracy is not just a reflection of reduced imagination and empathy, it's a measure of how far the Tory-led government in the UK has succeeded in its aim to degrade the lot of ordinary people in its aim to produce a poorly-educated, low-paid workforce. Stafford Beer famously coined the phrase, "The purpose of a system is what it does" - illiteracy, inequality, social degradation are the effects of our political system - ..."

"Michael, we get it. You hate Obama and Amazon doesn't pay you enough but the discussion at hand is not about politics or royalty rates or textbooks. It is about involving more children in read in and many of those books are available for less than five dollars. If they are ebooks, many classics are free or less than a dollar. The question is how to encourage children to read and encourage the parents to ..."

AvidReader on "James Patterson wants Amazon to do more to promote reading - Posted on November 20, 2014


"I think Patterson is focusing on the wrong partner here. Did I miss where he talked about publisher involvement? And the one thing that bookstores have over Amazon is the personal touch. Get involved with the schools and libraries. Sponsor reading times either in the schools, libraries or day care centers. Make book donations to some of the inner schools. Have book fairs at work. I know they were always popular at the places I ..."
