Amazon nags via snail mail, too….

In today’s snail mail:

kindle update mail

They are postcards sent to my husband and me reminding us that our kindles need a critical update. Postcards? From Amazon?

The irony: I tried to update one of my older e-ink devices yesterday, and for some reason, the update failed. I followed all the directions, but nothing happened. I am trying the others tonight, then calling Amazon tomorrow to try to pin down the problem (if necessary). I will post an update after I call. If I have to manually update all these Kindles, I am not gonna be happy…. 😦

How did your updates go?

Mozilla scraps in-Firefox ads (Computerworld) – Because the number of users who actually want this was how many?

Google Turns On Safe Browsing In Chrome For Android (Techcrunch) – A much needed safety feature.

Adobe Lightroom Mobile is now free on both Android and iOS (The Next Web) – Nice freebie for those who need it for Android.

Daily Links are interesting links I discover as I go about my online day. The frequency and number of links posted depend upon the daily news. I also post other, different links of interest on Twitter and on the Google Plus eBook Evangelist Page.
