One of the TRULY TRULY neat things about the Amazon Kindle and all of the zillions and zillions of eBooks that you can get on the Kindle’s is that you can read your media ANYWHERE you have one of your computers!
The Kindles are designed to read Kindle books so that is an obvious no-brainer.
But your iPhone? No problem!
On your Android phone or tablet? No problem!
On your Mac? No problem!
On your PC? No problem!
I’ve only found a couple of bugaboos with this entire idea.
Bugaboo #1: Apple takes a 30% (I think that is the amount) cut for “in app” purchases. This means that for the Amazon Store App or the Amazon Kindle App, that Apple and Amazon are in a big fight. Amazon won’t pay Apple the 30% so you can’t buy Kindle e-Books from an Amazon app. No big deal, you can buy online. I like Apple. I like Amazon. I honestly agree with Amazon on this one and I don’t think it hurts Amazon’s business much either. It doesn’t slow me down!
Bugaboo #2: Not that it matters much any more, but I really liked my Barnes and Noble Nook. B&N did not allow the Amazon Kindle reader app on the Nook. The Nook was an Android tablet and had they allowed Amazon books, I think I would have continued to purchase both Nook and Kindle books. As it turned out, I finally decided to jump to Kindle from Nook. Now B&N gets nothing.
So anyway, this is a “product” that costs you nothing to put on your equipment and allows you to read Kindle books. You can’t hardly go wrong with this.
