Here’s one a lot of you may know about – if you do, you’re going to say “so what?” Or, if you did know about it maybe you forgot? On the other hand, I’m willing to bet a lot of you don’t know about it as I had an informal, unscientific poll at work: in other words, I asked three people who own Kindles in the office if they knew, and they didn’t – hence this post. There’s also a few million new Kindle owners out there after this week!
Did you know you can have your Kindle tell you the time? You can, and each time you turn the wireless on, when it synchs with the cell phone tower it updates the internal clock. If you’re like me, time can quickly get away from you when you are engrossed in a novel and you’re not wearing your watch….and you’ll be really tired the next morning!
For you Kindle 1 / Original Kindle owners, to have the Kindle display the time press the “ALT” and “T” buttons simultaneously and the correct time will show on top.
For the Kindle 2 / 3 and Kindle DX owners – just press the Menu button and you will see the correct time on the top line, right in the center of the screen.
