So, everyone who has a Kindle, has an email address that allows for transport of PDF documents into the device. There are some costs associated with it, but as long as you don’t over-use the feature, you don’t really run into any overruns that show up on your account.
I came across an interesting site the other day – a site that promoted “interesting content, delivered to your Kindle.” You simply entered your Kindle’s email address, and they promised to send you a periodic newsletter to it. I haven’t received anything yet, but ostensibly, it’s formatted to look good on a Kindle screen, and it is content that exists outside the Google/Social Networking ecosystem.
A secret content club, of sorts.
I really enjoy reading content on my Kindle, and my biggest beef with reading blogs on it is that I can’t share snippets to Twitter. This solution described above doesn’t solve the problem, but it is a fun sounding way to distribute content.
My question is this: If I provided original content not found anywhere else – how many folks do I know (with Kindles) would sign up to get it?
I’m not totally sold on the idea just yet, but I’m leaning towards trying it out.
Incidentally, does the Nook have a backdoor like this as well?
