I don’t know where to turn: My Amazon Kindle is being a bit weird and I want to restart it, but don’t have any clue how to do so short of just running the battery completely out and recharging it. How do I restart or reboot my Kindle??
I know that the my Kindle DX can read the text of some books and magazine articles, but I heard that you can also listen to music on the Kindle while you’re reading? Sweet, but how the heck do you do that??
Got an Amazon Kindle for my birthday but haven’t had much time to get into it, but I understand I can subscribe to my favorite magazines and have them automatically show up on my Kindle the same day the print magazines are published? That’s pretty cool, but I’m at a bit of a loss. How do I find what magazines are available and how do I subscribe to a magazine on my Kindle?
My parents bought me an Amazon Kindle ebook reader for Christmas. Very cool. They also told me that they bought me a few books on Amazon (we share an account). I’m baffled, though: how do I get those books onto my Kindle?

Most product review are written shortly after the product is announced, but we thought it would be interesting to give our assessment of the Kindle 2 after using it for a year, and talk about how it has changed our lifestyle and the way we do business.
The Kindle 2 was first announced on February 24, 2009. We placed our order soon after it was announced, but had to wait a couple weeks for it to ship because of the intense demand. Our home looks like a library with books scattered from one end to the next, so we felt this would a good investment. The price we paid was $359 plus extra for incidentals, bringing the total outlay to over $400. Other than missing out on the major price reduction to $259 base price in October, we have not been disappointed.
On a personal note, once we received the Kindle 2, Deb instantly laid claim to the device, and Tom was only granted occasional visitation rights. Deb has since logged several hundred hours of intimate one-on-one time with “Johann,” the name she has given to her Kindle, and the following are thoughts and observations from this extended road test.
If you are still clinging to your love for the printed word, there are several features on the Kindle that make it worth giving up the ink-on-paper version of books.
