Share with Kindle

sharing.jpg

Just as Barnes and Noble allows sharing of ebooks with their LendMe app, Amazon has announced that soon you will have the ability to loan some of your Kindle ebooks for up to 14 days. The determination is up to the publisher or rights owner and the catch is that you won't be able to read it while the loanee is doing so. Look for the new feature to launch in the next few weeks.

Freakin' Friday! Amazon Mobile App

We admit it. We are Amazon addicts and love the ease of shopping there, not only because it is competitive in pricing but also because we often get free shipping and have never had a problem with any purchase. The free Amazon Mobile app is a gift to shoppers as it allows iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users to bar scan and search, read reviews, compare prices and shop, including full access to cart, wish list, payment and shipping option. The iPhone and touch app includes "Amazon Remembers," a feature that lets you create a visual list with your cam. The app will send you an email alert if it finds the product or something similar to your image.

With Chatroulette you still can find yourself at the very least face to face with a nekkid person. Will Bunker, who originally created what is now Match.com, decided to build vChatter, a Facebook app that launched in May and already has over 2.5 million users. Now there is a stand alone site with the advantages of meeting others based on geography, gender and age.
