Our new Kindle 2 eBook Reader showed up a day early and I couldn’t be more excited! Well truth be told, if a 1957 Strat was delivered in place of the Kindle then I guess I’d be REALLY EXCITED! Sorry, just had to get that one out of my head.
After taking our dog Midnight out for her morning walk and just before giving her, her breakfast a UPS driver knocked on the door sending Midnight out of her mind. All I was thinking was how to keep her from waking my wife up with her barking! As I opened the door she ran out to investigate and welcome the driver with lots of licks, I actually know him from work. After all the commotion had ended he handed me a package and right there I knew that it was the kindle!
So my wife just got up and we opened the package. The packaging was easy to open and quite sturdy looking. The screen of our new Kindle instructed us to turn it on and the welcome screen showed up after taking a few seconds to load up the program.
I picked it up and I was the first one to turn a page on the Kindle – kind of cool! This thing reminds me of something from Star Track! The reader is set up for easy use if your a left or right handed readers. My wife then hit the button Aa that is directly to the right of the spacer bar on the Kindle’s keyboard. It activated a menu that allows you to initiate the Text-to-Speech software. You have the option to use a male or female voice. The default setting is set to use a male voice. Damn it sounds a lot like the genius Stephen Hawkings!
Later on today we are off to an appointment and hopefully we can download one of the new books that my wife had uploaded to her laptop yesterday before leaving. I know this is not music related post but when we start becoming more literate with this thing, we’ll try all the music related options that comes with it. Wish us luck!
Keep on Kindlin’
