Read Kindle ebooks on your computer with Kindle for PC

eBooks have been heralded as the next big thing in publishing and after the success of the Sony Reader in its various forms, excitement was ripe for the Kindle. Now using Kindle for PC, it is possible to read Kindle ebooks on your computer regardless of whether or not your own a Kindle device.

The application synchronises with your online Kindle account so you can access your ebooks if you don’t have your Kindle with you. The program can also be used as an easy way to read through sample chapters before deciding whether or not to buy a particular book.

When reading books in the application, it is possible to create bookmarks and notes as well as highlight sections of interest, and these will be synchronised with your Kindle if you have one. On screen, reading is easy on the eye thanks to the ability to not only change text size but also its colour and to switch to full-screen mode.

A simple icon-based system is used to provide an overview of books in your library and books themselves, or more details about them are never more than a couple of clicks away. With easy access to Amazon’s online Kindle shop and automatic synchronisation with your Kindle, this is a program which every Kindle user should install, but it is also a great introduction to ebooks for non-Kindle owners.

Verdict:

An excellent supplement to your Kindle, and a great way to try out the service if you are thinking about purchasing and ereader.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
