    Re: News - ‘Send To Kindle’ for easy transfer of PC documents and images

    Amazon has today released ‘Send To Kindle,’ a PC application that enables the easy transfer of documents from Windows Explorer and Windows applications directly to your e-book reader.

    ....
    "directly" to your Kindle???

    ....

    Available to download today on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, ‘Send To Kindle’ archives documents in the cloud with all your Kindle e-books. Transferring documents and images is simply a matter of right-clicking on the required file within Windows Explorer and choosing the ‘Send To Kindle’ option.
    And therein lies my problem with it - it is not "direct".

    I have a lot of documents stored on my Kindle, but I'm not willing to have Amazon archive them, cloud or otherwise. So I'll continue to do it my own way, which is to use Calibre to manage the document collection locally. That way, it's under my control, and confidentiality is retained.

    Each to his/her own, and this Amazon app may well delight many people, but personally, I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

    Well amazon have already proved they will remotely delete content from your kindle if necessary (ironically it was Orwell's book 1984)
    so it is wise to use Calibre as well.

    That said this is a handy feature that I'll be using often:

    There is already this functionality available if you email documents to youramazonusername@kindle.com though?

    Not sure that I need an app - it's not that difficult to email!

    If they could provide cast iron security, I can see this being very useful because documents are easy to read on a kindle. So much better than trying to read a 50 page legal agreement emailed to me on a blackberry

    I'm sure I've had this app for a while on Android or is this different?
