Amazon buys Stanza

As was rumored to happen, Amazon bought Stanza today or, more accurately, bought Lexcycle, the company behind Stanza.  Here's Lexcycle's announcement.  In addition to its free books for iPhone focus, Kindle users have been using Stanza with their Macs to convert PDFs to Kindle format.  Maybe we can now see direct ePub support for the Kindle, or am I being too optimistic?

NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the blogger.com "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the 'blogger.com' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
