"Kindle makes YOUR personal documents SECOND CLASS."1.0 starson by Jacob5000
Pros: Amazon Kindle provides support for notes and highlights, but this support is limited their books only.
Cons: Poor support for personal documents! Notes from Kindle For PC are not copied to Kindle personal documents! If you ever uninstall K4PC, you will lose EVERYTHING! Also Personal docs do not support the same quality as regular ebooks.
Summary: It may not seem like an important issue to people who mostly do casual reading or who read fiction. But for people like students, researchers, and other professionals, this is a big deal because all your ebooks don't come from Amazon. Many companies and non-profit organizations provide free ebooks you can't get from Amazon.You guys are crazy. The Kindle is designed to replace books. Amazon does provide comments. It would be something different if they did not provide them. They purposefully crippling the device. Furthermore the ereader is actually ADVERTISED to students for school. Just because you are simple minded with your ereader doesn't mean it has ONE purpose. You should consider giving this further thought. It is NOT advertised as just an ereader. Why should anyone be confined within your definitions of the tool? Amazon added comments and highlights for a reason. Just because you don't use them doesn't mean they are not needed.
So if you need to take extensive notes, these notes will be lost because the only way to take extensive notes effectively is through Kindle For PC. K4PC as stated above does not copy your notes to your personal docs on your Kindle! So if you ever uninstall K4PC everything is lost.
Several companies now provide books in AZW format which is Amazon's book format. It provides superior formatting to MOBI, but you can't use it on Amazon's Kindle! So your personal ebooks will NEVER look as good as they could be!
Amazon is cheating its users and professionals are suffering the most!
