Kindle eBook Lending, etc.

At New Street we don't DRM our eBooks, so the lending thing is not big news in this office. Crave - CNET: "In a forum post today, Amazon made a couple of small but significant Kindle announcements. First, it's soon going to make Kindle newspapers and magazines readable on any Kindle app, 'so you can always read Kindle periodicals even if you don't have your Kindle with you or don't yet own a Kindle.' Second, the company said that later this year a lending feature will come to the Kindle, though it has the same restrictions as the current lending feature on the Barnes & Noble Nook."
