Kindle Create App Out of Beta | The Digital Reader

Kindle Create App Out of Beta | The Digital Reader | Leituras Digitais | Scoop.it
Amazon's app for making Kindle ebooks, Kindle Create, is out of beta. Originally launched in April, Kindle Create is Amazon's 4th Kindle ebook making app (the other three are  Kindle Kids Book Creator, Kindle Textbook Creator, and Kindle Comics Creator). Kindle Create is a Windows and macOS app that helps you transform your manuscript into a project file that you can upload to Amazon and sell as a Kindle ebook. (It doesn't actually make an ebook you can read directly on your Kindle or smartphone.) The app works with DOC or DOCX files, and automatically identifies details like formatting and headers, turning them into chapter headings, a TOC, etc. It comes with 4 default templates for formatting a book, and they can be customized to suit your preferences. I've been playing with it for a few minutes, and once I figured out how to change the default formatting I found it really easy to use. It automatically handles reformatting all chapter headings, or subheadings, etc, saving me from having to make sure that I missed just one of seventeen chapter titles. It's a shame that this app can't make a Kindle ebook, though. While it does have a simulator which is supposed [...]

First Look at 7.8", Android 6.0 Onyx Boox Nova eReader (video) | The Digital Reader

First Look at 7.8", Android 6.0 Onyx Boox Nova eReader (video) | The Digital Reader | Leituras Digitais | Scoop.it
The Chinese ereader maker Onyx is teasing a new model, and Notebook Italia got to see it at the HKTDC Electronics Fair 2017. The Onyx Boox Nova will reportedly feature a dual-core Freescale i.MX6 chip with 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. It will have a 7.8" Carta E-ink screen with frontlight and touchscreen, and run Android 6.0. The rest of the technical specifications include microSD card slot, speakers, microphone, headphone jack, WiFi and Bluetooth, and a USB-C port. I know, I know, they're going to force you to carry round yet another a cable, but this detail will likely change before the Nova ships, so I wouldn't worry too much. The Nova is supposed to enter production in the first quarter of 2018, but Onyx has consistently been overly optimistic in promising new hardware. I would not expect this device to be available before fall 2018. Notebook Italia Check These Out!

25 Million Images From 14 Art Institutions to Be Digitized & Put Online In One Huge Scholarly Archive | Leituras Digitais | Scoop.it


Digital art archives, says Thomas Gaehtgens, director of the Getty Research Institute, are “Sleeping Beauties, and they are waiting to be discovered and kissed.” It’s an odd metaphor, especially since the archive to which Gaehtgens refers currently contains photographic treasures like that of Medieval Christian art from the Netherlands Institute for Art History.
