The Future Of Reading

“Kindle for Mac” coming soon, too

Posted by admin on October 31, 2009


Apple owners are in luck, too: An Amazon rep tells us that the company is also planning a Mac version of the Kindle software.

This is not a huge step forward for the e-book industry, but we think it’ll be especially useful for students, writers, and journalists, who may want to be able to see a book side-by-side while they’re writing in an app like Microsoft Word or a Web browser.

We’re not sure if you’ll be able to copy and paste Kindle e-book text into another app — that could be seen as a piracy opportunity. But at least it’ll be easier than shifting your eyes between devices to cite an e-book. (And, we hope, searchable.)
