[PL] Tak, też jestem Kindle’m…

No może nie do końca, ale w małym stopniu już tak. Odkryłem ostatnio (lata świetlne za tymi, którzy jej używają) opcję jaką daje Amazon dla swoich klientów nie posiadających tego coraz bardziej popularnego przedmiotu, jakim jest Kindle Reader. Jest nią dostępna bezpłatnie aplikacja Kindle for PC. Pobieramy ją sobie ze strony amazon.com, logujemy się na konto w sklepie (lub tworzymy nowe) i już na dzień dobry dostajemy trzy książki. Proces jest banalnie prosty:

Capture_KindleDesk01  Capture_KindleDesk02

Rys.1 & Rys.2 | Uruchomienie aplikacji (przez UAC) oraz sama instalacja.

Capture_KindleDesk03  Capture_KindleDesk04

Rys.3 & Rys.4 | Bardzo ładny ekran powitalny i ekran logowania/rejestracji

Następne pół godziny spędziłem na “kupowaniu” kilkudziesięciu książek, jakie można znaleźć w sklepie w cenie 0 dolarów. Są to głównie klasyki literatury, ale do nich wraca się dość często i fajnie mieć je pod ręką. Oraz trochę książek akcji, fikcji, fantasy i science-fiction. Nie są to najlepsze i najnowsze tytuły, ale ilość wystarczy na długie tygodnia, a w zasadzie na miesiące podróży – bo w domu to zazwyczaj sięgam po papierowe wydania.


Rys.5 | Fragment kolekcji bardzo podręcznej.

Z pewnością nadejdzie kiedyś taki czas, że te 200 dolarów wydam na taki czytnik, bo ich praktyczność, zwłaszcza w podróży jest naprawdę duża. Ale to za czas jakiś, póki co wystarczy mi czytnik, który synchronizuje się ze wszystkim moimi komputerami i który działa na podróżnym mini laptopie.
