Two Easy to Use Kindle 3 Features


If you’re older than 50, you’re probably not as tech savvy as the younger generations, and may perhaps even feel a little overwhelmed by all the gadgetry that surrounds you today. But don’t let that put you off on checking out one gadget, the Amazon Kindle. The Kindle 3 is an e-book reader that currently dominates the market for portable, lightweight e-readers.

It’s as easy to use as opening a hard-copy book, but unlike a book, it can be loaded with hundreds of books to read at your leisure. It is like a printed book in the normal sense, in that you need light to read. Unlike computer screens, the Kindle uses what’s called e-ink technology which mimics normal print media. So the Kindle 3 can be read in bright sunlight and is as easy on the eyes as normal print text. Also, just like a book, at night you need a light source to be able to read.

Just to highlight how user friendly the Kindle 3 is, let’s look at 2 of its functions.

  • Firstly have the Kindle dictionary. Using a dictionary while reading a normal book is a hassle for most people. With the advent of electronic readers however, it becomes much easier as these devices include a built-in dictionary. Looking up words on the fly, as you are reading your Kindle is very easy.
