Page 6 - Something your printed paper can't do
HUGE PHOTO GALLERY | We've got it in our hot little hands -- the first 'international' Kindle.
Above: now here's something you really can't do with a print newspaper -- search it.
Above: searching for 'Kindle' seemed like an appropriate test, given how much news there is at the moment on the release of the Kindle to the world.
Above: oops, you can't do it on a newly downloaded newspaper on the Kindle either. It needs time to index the content first.
Above: speaking of search, here's the Kindle's main search screen. We thought we'd look for 'Sydney' since that's where we are.
Above: despite having a web search option, the web browser is locked off to international users.
Above: a search of the Kindle store for 'Sydney' -- again, returning some very suspect results based on our past purchasing history. Still, you can't blame Amazon for using the data available to it to tailor search results -- even if it does make for an embarrassing result in your review of its flagship device! ;-)
