I really, really like all this new web technology. One of my favorite things – for now at least – is all the apps you can download and run on your phone or mobile computing device. I have an iPhone and when I discovered that the good folks at Amazon had a Kindle reader app that I could download for FREE, man did I hop.
When you set this up on your iPhone it gets even better. To activate the reader you must link it to your Amazon account – this is after all the Kindle reader used to read the eBooks that Amazon sells. You can browse books from your iPhone, you can buy books from your iPhone. BUT, the REALLY exciting thing is that Amazon gives you an email address linked to your reader. If you email a PDF document to that address you can read it on your iPhone. Now when I go shopping, I upload the manuals for my equipment before heading to the hardware store. That way I have all those parts numbers in hand and have avoided those irksome extra trips. I do the same thing with recipes so I am never stuck not knowing what all the ingredients are and if an adjustment needs to be made I have all the numbers with me.
Even if you gave up reading in the third grade, got get this app and use it on your phone. It will help you with short term information needs and you might just find out that reading is fun.
