These are programs that can be listened to when there or downloaded for listening on your mp3 player while reading the weekly TKC features that include Kindle (and iPad) news, Tech Tips, Kindle Content, Comments from listeners, and above all the unique audio interviews that Len Edgerly does with those in the Kindle and e-reader universe.
Here are the interview subjects from the last four weeks along with Len's interview descriptions for them:
'Jay Marine, Amazon’s Director of Product Management for the Kindle, spoke with me from Seattle on Tuesday, May 11. His job in such conversations is to avoid any predictions of future products or enhancements, and let’s just say he’s good at his job. But if you listen between the lines, you’ll hear encouraging passion regarding Amazon’s commitment to keep those Kindle innovations coming.'
'Mike Elgan, Silicon Valley-based columnist, writer, speaker and blogger, this week published a ComputerWorld column titled “Why iPad Owners Need a Kindle, Too.” In our conversation on May 18th, he provided background to his list of 13 reasons why he thinks every iPad owner who loves books and reading also needs a Kindle.'
'J. A. Konrath’s AmazonEncore deal has everyone in publishing talking, it seems. In a Skype interview on May 26 linking us in Denver and Chicago, Joe told the back story and details of the deal, in which Amazon will release the Kindle version of the seventh book in his Jack Daniels police mystery series, Shaken, on October 26, 2010, to be followed on February 22, 2011, by the paperback edition. Click here for a free sample of Shaken and click here for a Digital Book World Roundtable discussion of Konrath’s accomplishment.'
'James McQuivey in a conversation recorded on June 1, 2010, explains why he’s worried Amazon may be about to miss a once-in-a-lifetime shot, if they don’t come up with an iPad killer. James is vice president and principal analyst at Forrester Research.'
