Amazon offering a new beta firmware for the Kindle

I just found out that there's a new firmware out for the K3. I'm still downloading it, so I can't comment on how well it works. But some of the features really tempt me.

Page Numbers - People wanted them, so Amazon gave them to you. You're now going to have the option of tracking your location based on the page numbers of the related paper edition. (No, I'm not joking.)

Public Notes - You're now going to be able to share your notes from the Kindle.

New layout for Newspapers & Magazines - Look to the right ->

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
