Wondering on Wednesday: Kindle Update!

For those of you with the K3, or what is now called ridiculously the Kindle Keyboard, we're getting an upgrade to version 3.3. As always, the update is completely free. All you need to do is turn your Kindle on, click "Home" to access your library and turn your WiFi on if it wasn't already. Then press "Menu", "Sync & Check for Items" and the next time your Kindle goes into sleep mode, it should automatically upgrade. If for some reason this upgrade doesn't happen naturally, during the last one we had I ended up having to do mine manually, you can do it yourself here. That's a link to Amazon's website where they basically tell you which download is the one for you depending on which Kindle Keyboard you have. But basically after downloading that file, simply plug in your e-reader to the computer, drag and drop the update into your Kindle folder (My computer --> Kindle), disconnect, get to the "Menu" then "Update Your Kindle".

Tada! Let me know if you have any questions or issues with the process and I'll be more than happy to look into it for you.

What this upgrade includes:

- Easier access to archived personal documents
- Whispersync for personal documents
- AmazonLocal deals on the Keyboard with Special Features
- Voice guide short cuts

So it's nothing to big or drastic, probably things I personally won't even use to often but it's nice to know they still love us Kindle Keyboards with all of these new snazzy Kindles coming our way.

Have any of you done the AmazonLocal? It seems to be Amazon's version of the Groupon...
