    Quick Look: The Kindle DX

    The beautiful and attractive Kindle DX just arrived at Crunch HQ and sadly I was not there to greet it. Instead, we have this collection of unboxing photographs. We will have a full review on Friday, barring any unexpected prose accidents while trying to read Lovely Bones or the collected works of Karl Marx. Gallery after the jump. Read More

  • Kindle can't say "Barack Obama"

    Kindle can't say "Barack Obama"

    Hay-ree-et Bee-char Sto-wee The Kindle 2 and the Kindle DX pronounces “Barack Obama” as “Bay-rack Oh-bamma,” slightly embarrassing for a device designed to display and read newspapers. An NYT story find this to be slightly funny but, as we all know, text-to-speech has been a fail party for years, no matter what the Authors Guild says. Read More

    How is the Kindle DX going to save the newspaper industry when Amazon demands a whopping 70 percent of all revenue, plus the right to license that content (“the mayor said something important today at City Hall”) wherever it chooses? Such is the plight of the Dallas Morning News, and, presumably, other, smaller (compared to the New York Times, Washington Post, etc.) newspapers. Read More

    Twitter reacts to Kindle DX news: Price is an issue

    Hands-on: Amazon Kindle DX [UPDATE]

    It’s a madhouse here at Pace U., but I managed to grab a couple photos. Not my hands, but you can see how big this new DX really is. South Paws might feel like they’re being left out with only right-hand side controls, but you can flip the Kindle DX upside and it auto-rotates so the controls are on your left (upside down though). Oh, and Pace U. has been confirmed as the sixth… Read More
