3G Web on the Kindle Paperwhite
Last night. I was playing around with my new 3G Kindle Paperwhite. (I earn a few bucks if you buy from Amazon after clicking links to Amazon in this blog post)
One of the things that bums me out about the Kindle Touch and Kindle Paperwhite is that they don't support browsing over 3G canada goose boxing day sale toronto cheap . It's a feature I used rarely on my Kindle 2 and Kindle 3. But when I needed it. I really. really needed it.
So yeah. Last night. I was playing with my new Kindle Paperwhite 3G.
I clicked the menu button canada goose boxing day sale toronto cheap online .
I clicked "Settings"
I clicked "Reading Options"
Then I clicked on "Social networks"
Then I clicked on "Link my account to Twitter" and got a very familiar OAuth login page.
It was at about this point that I remembered what I'd seen poking around inside the Kindle Touch's UI toolkit canada goose boxing day sale toronto cheap . Different applications were basically implemented as little webkit containers with different local and remote permissions. The browser's container was cheap canada goose boxing day sale toronto cheap . for example. configured to let you reach Amazon and Wikipedia over 3G and to require WIFI for everything else.
Now. this "Manage Your Social Networks" app pretty clearly lets you get to Twitter and Facebook (and Amazon). but how locked down is it.
To make a long story short canada goose boxing day sale toronto cheap . it's about as locked down as a 1999-era web kiosk, canada goose jacket outlet online sales .
Back in the early days of the web. people didn't have web browsers in their pockets. so "web kiosks" were a frequent sight in forward-thinking public locales like libraries and corporate lobbies. They were invariably locked down. You couldn't launch Telnet or download a copy of Snood. In fact. they were mostly set up to only let you browse a single website. The usual mechanism for this fascist policy was to use a hacked up web browser without a URL bar. Sometimes. you were just out of luck, black friday sale on canada goose parka outlet online . More often canada goose boxing day sale toronto cheap inexpensive . you got to demonstrate your l33t sk1llz at a game called "clicks to Yahoo. " or its more nefarious sibling -- "clicks to porn. " Somewhere on every website is a link to another website canada goose men's borden bomber parka sales . Back in the day. an easy target was a "best viewed in Netscape 3. 0" or "Best viewed in Internet Explorer" button - from netscape. com. you could get anywhere.
Today. well discount canada goose trillium parka noire femme . today you have many options. My first path through this game led me from http. //kindle discount canada goose chilliwack vrai . amazon, quelle parka canada goose parka outlet store . com to http canada goose spiritual meaning store . //amazon. com/ to http. //www. woot. com to http. //reddit. com. From reddit. you can get just about anywhere. though you might have to endure more mindless yammering than you'd like. For my proper demo. I went for something a bit more useful (if via a slightly more circuitous route. )
Rather than signing in to Twitter to let Amazon tweet on your behalf canada goose boxing day sale toronto cheap . break the flow by clicking the little bird in the upper left corner.
Then click "Sign in"
Scroll to the bottom of the page and search for @google
Click on @google's profile
Click on the URL to get to Google Support.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Google Home"
Now. I don't mean to suggest that this turns the Kindle Paperlight into a useful 3G web browser. but when you're desperate. you're desperate.
(Also. if you're just trying to read Twitter or Facebook. it's actually not that painful. )
