A "plonk" is Australian for "Bite Me!".

BTW, I do pay attention. I have read your reviews. actually I think that they are pretty good discriptions. If you pay attention, I up voted you on them, and bought a book.

(Sigh!) Were you but to ask Google, "define:plonk", you would learn:

@F. Linton

You are 2 serious, besides I have to give those unfortunates down under the blame for something.

And beside, I harass them for my old best friends sake. Randy lives near Dugout Doug's old Haunts in Adelade.

Yes I just discovered about that on the device books sorting vs archives. What a pain in the....... not to have that on the archives like it is on the ipad app.

Am trying to understand the droid system.

Maybe I'm missing something but how do you copy highlights on Android? I use an app that sends a webpage to Kindle, I highlight stuff, its in my library, but I cant access it on 'your highlights' - all im trying to do is get access to what i clip, ie. A copy and paste function!

Why does *every* Kindle for Android update wipe all books from my device so that I have to download them again?

No idea. I have this app on my phone and tablet and never had that happen.

When I syncronize my laptop, its ok at my android. All the annotation appear on android app. By the other hand, it doesnt work in reversal mode, from android to laptop. Anyone experienced the same?

I have read this whole discussion and I havent found an answer to my problem. I have a Samsung Infuse 4G and for the last two days I havent been able to read any book in a portrait position. Everything is showing as landscape, I tried with all the books, so its not some books problem. This is really inconvenient and uncomfortable. Has any of you experienced anything like that? What would you suggest me to do? Any ideas, jazzy_jeff? Maybe I should download an update? Thanks in advance!
P/S: Forgive me about the lack of apostrophes, I dont know how to enter them with this phone
