Must Read If You Have a Pre-2012 Kindle

From The Huffington Post:

 Amazon has announced a ‘critical’ software for the Kindle which, unless downloaded by a certain date, will render your e-reader essentially unusable.

Customers will need to update the software on their Kindles by 22 March or risk losing access to all of Amazon’s Kindle services including the book store and being able to update wirelessly over WiFi.

According to Amazon these are the devices that will need the emergency software update:

Kindle 1st Generation (2007)
Kindle 2nd Generation (2009)
Kindle DX 2nd Generation (2009)
Kindle Keyboard 3rd Generation (2010)
Kindle 4th Generation (2011)
Kindle 5th Generation (2012)
Kindle Touch 4th Generation (2011)
Kindle Paperwhite 5th Generation (2012)

Amazon’s support page hasn’t revealed why the update is so essential but it will almost certainly be grounded in security.

Like most people one day Wesley will die. Until then though, Wesley spends his days drinking coffee, watching the telly,trying to figure out politics and listening to BBC Radio... and on the days he is at work watching trains under the ground. Away from work he putters around in the kitchen, tends to his fish, watches films and occasionally reads a book, or works in his garden. Wesley is also a keen father to his two little princesses, and a slave to his wife.
