"FYI when I watched the video on youtube I realized you did the typing mode completely wrong. The lid is is supposed to flip and then fold inwards, like the felt facing up to the back of the case - not down to the surface. "

"Fascinating. I am reading this article in 2014 after being concerned with exactlly the same problem in eBooks purchased for my new Nook reader. Three years after the article I'm sad to report that the situation is, if anything, worse. Barnes & Noble offer a great number of free eBooks for the Nook. Perhaps 90% of these have been obtained from the Google Library Project, and one must therefore assume, were scanned under ..."

"I'd take this list more seriously if Amazon's business practices didn't display such contempt for authors and thus the books they create. The best illustration of that lies in Amazon's complex and Scrooge-like royalty rates for ebooks. Note the differences: * Apple pays a flat 70% royalty at all prices from $0.99 to $199.99 and charges not download fee. It varies, but typically, Smashwords pays even better for direct sales than Apple. * Amazon only ..."

"Sandstone Press is always open for submissions! This is the case with most small independent publishers of high quality. We are fortunate to receive excellent submissions from agents, but we also get many directly from authors. Sometimes it's a bit of a deluge and it's hard to keep up, but the benefit of being independent is being open to surprises - we never know what wonderful books are going to appear in the ..."

"Lynda is an outstanding master of the chilling tale. She's gone to school on the masters of that field, and she brings a Southern storytelling sensibility that also addresses other cultures. Highly recommended. The world of e-publishing may be flooded with would-bes who shouldn't quit their day jobs, but if you know where to look, there's gold to be found. This is a perfect example. "

"It's not just that Orbit is only providing password protected PDFs, but the PDFs include all the printer registration marks, which means that if you want to read it on an eInk or small tablet, you have a choice of it being unreadable because the fonts are unreadably small, or if you override the font size, fonts are large enough to read, but you've lost all of the formatting and sometimes the words are ..."

"Zinio fraudulently renewed my magazines as well. I specifically set my publication to not renew and they charged my card anyway. It's been very difficult to resolve this and feels like a scam. I would never use zinio again. "

"I use Fintie cases for my Nexus 7 and Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. I'm quite happy with the fit and feel of their cases. "

"As a reader and author of more than 1300 reviews on Goodreads, my observation is that to speak of "reviewers" or "authors" as some kind of monolith is mistaken. I, for one, encourage and enjoy interacting with authors and love to have them comment on my reviews. There are some reviewers and authors, seemingly mostly in the YA and SF genres, who self-righteously like the drama. Those folks are easily and rightly ignored ..."

"What I'm wondering is whether Orbit will finally wake up to the fact that providing only DRM-infested PDFs of their authors' books has done enormous damage to those books' and authors' chances. "

"And it is fun to fool around with my own personal filter. It makes me feel in control and troll proof when the nice words get through and sparkle and make me happy. The petty, nasty, (uninformed!) comments are left to shrivel in the desert. Easy to do, but takes practice. "

"@JT, yes, that sucks, and I agree. The right thing would be for Amazon to release an Android app. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like they are going to any time soon. "

"Thanks Juli; deleting the cache does let me watch a video. Unfortunately though, it only works once - each time I watch a video, I have to delete the cache first. Bummer. I wonder what changed - presumably something in Dolphin? I can tell almost immediately when it's not going to work: the font of the "loading" graphic shrinks momentarily before the video actually starts playing when it works. When it doesn't work, the font size ..."
