Kobo, the Canadian e-reader, tablet and e-book company owned by Japan’s e-commerce giant Rakuten, today unveiled its newest device, the Aura HD, a limited-edition e-reader it’s aiming it at power bookworms, with a 265dpi resolution on a 6.8-inch screen, 4 gigabytes of storage and a two-month battery life for the premium price of $169.99 (£139.99).
I jumped into this e-reader world when I saw that Moon+ Reader had text to speech. There are some books that don't have audio versions that I really would love to hear while I drive, mow, dishes, etc. So I loaded it on my Droid. Anyway, I bought my first e-book through my local independent bookstore. Unfortunately, it was through Kobo books. I thought I saw Kobo in the notes for Moon+.
The 1.11.0 version of the eBook reader and management software Calibre was announced on November 15. The developer of Calibre is making great strides with the software, and this week, he integrated a lot of new features, including a very important driver.
