Kindle vs iBooks

eBooks: Kindle vs iBooks.

Price = for some reason Kindle books have a USD 2 markup for non-US residents. Point goes to iBooks

Accessibility = Kindle wins this hands-down it's on most platforms. iBooks is locked to Apple, some iBooks require an iPad, not sure if it will work on iBooks OSX.

Enhanced Ebooks = On Kindle, I sent a sample to my iPhone but got an error when trying to play audio. App told me to re-download, did it twice no luck - not sure if this is because it's a sample. Could not send sample of iBooks because I don't have an iPad,  there is no option to send sample to iBooks OSX.

I am leaning towards getting all 3 enhanced ebooks making of original trilogy star wars on Kindle.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
