Is there any way to fix a tiny scratch on the screen?

23 December 2017 15:09 (GMT)

I have unfortunately somehow managed to get the tiniest scratch in the top of my Paperwhite screen. It's not too distracting but I'm concerned it may spread over time. Any ideas on fixes or will I just eventually have to replace the whole screen? Thanks gang & Merry Christmas

Kindle – A real pain in the arms too?! A few more e-reader testers required

06 December 2017 15:04 (GMT)

I am on a quest to find some crash test kindle users. As I mentioned in The Lounge It came to me early in my tablet days that they weren’t actually so comfortable. Hard fold up stands just too difficult to get in the right position, wee pillow types even trickier when moving it and the tablet about.

So, I came up with and patented what is now known as tabpillö. Literally a tablet soft stand, tabpillö securely holds the tablet, allowing multiple angles of repositioning and greater comfort. Simply slide your eReader/tablet into tabpillö's window pocket and your eReader is secure. If you’re anything like me, cuddling up with your eReader in bed, or on the sofa for half hour or so, means a strain. Slipping that cumbersome literary gem into your tabpillö and for me the “pain in the arms” feeling literally disappear.

We’ve had some great feedback to date but I’m hoping to get in contact with 3 or 4 Kindle/eReader/7-8” tablet lovers to get their perspective on how and where they use their device, how long they spend on it and how they feel when using it. We’d also love feedback on what difference the tabpillo makes to their experience. We’re then aiming to move into a broader research phase with a reasonable number of participants to gauge the value and shortcomings of our beloved eReaders. 

If you wish to do a little e-reading and would like to be one of our test drivers for tabpillö, take a look at our website, pick your colour and then let me know you’re interested and we’ll get you started. We’re only a small team so first in, first served if you know what I mean.

Kindle on iPad

30 November 2017 13:47 (GMT)

I updated my Kindle app two or three weeks ago, with the result that now I can't get from Collections to Library.

There is an icon on the screen that is labelled "library" but it doesn't work no matter how many times I tap it.

Anyone experiencing the same problem and maybe with a solution?

Thanks, PeteFJ.

Kindle / Kindle Oasis default name?

Kindle / Kindle Oasis default name?

 

Kindle / Kindle Oasis default name? Hi can anyone confirm for me what their default name for their first kindle it use to be “Sylar’s Kindle” but even though my old kindle has long been deregistered it will not allow me to change what is currently my only kindle device to “Sylar’s Kindle” manually. It shows up as “Sylar’s second kindle” after trying to edit it it keeps telling me the name “Sylar’s kindle” is already in use? If I reregister it, it adds a period to the end of it?

problem with Kindle Store

10 November 2017 10:57 (GMT)

Hi everybody,
I have a problem with my new Kindle Paperwhite, the Kindle Store isn't working, the bestsellers-sellers books are being displayed but there's no ability to buy anything, it says: "currently unavailable"
When you search for any book or author in the store there are 0 results. Does anybody know why is it happening and how to solve the problem? I tried to restart it but no changes.
Thanks

D-Day (Time Patrol)
'Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.' Winston Churchill

History is made by ordinary people doing extraordinary things. The fact that often time’s history doesn’t record the heroics of these people doesn’t alter that. The missions on 6 June range from:

1944 A.D.: Mac parachutes behind the beaches of Normandy and links up with the Resistance to insure the last ‘good war’ ends the way history records.

478 B.C.: Scout arrives to stumble over the body of Pythagoras in the entrance of Oracle of Delphi's cave.

452 A.D.: Roland arrives in the great hall Heoret, in time to meet Beowulf and then Grendel, proving reality is more dangerous than poetry.

1843 A.D: Ivar arrive at West Point, meeting a middling cadet, small in stature, named Ulysses S. Grant who is trying to survive and graduate.

1998 A.D.: Doc is at a secret nuclear weapons depot in Pakistan, where the saber-rattling of nuclear tests is getting ready to escalate into Armageddon; a war to end all wars.

And, strangest of all, Moms goes on a mission thousands of years into pre-history, to the day Art is born.

While history doesn’t record the heroics by the ordinary, there are those who do notice. And there are those who want to stop those ordinary people and change our history in order to create a time tsunami and wipe our present out of existence.

It is up to the Time Patrol to send an agent back to six different years on the 6th of June and make sure that doesn’t happen!

Free 1/5 to 1/8 The next evolution of soldiers may be our extinction.

SYNBAT
Kirkus Reviews. “Action packed entertainment.  An atavistic milieu plausibly conjured up by Mayer.” 
Publishers Weekly. “Mayer keeps story and characters firmly under control.  The venal motives of the scientists and military bureaucracy are tellingly contrasted with the idealism of the soldiers—a treat for military fiction readers.”

Southern Book Trade. ““Clancy, Coonts and Brown might have the market cornered when it comes to hardware, but Mayer knows what all Infantry types will tell you: it’s the soldier who makes all the difference.
