in January I shared the news about Amazon's Send to Kindle software for Windows. As I learned from CNET, Send to Kindle is now available for Mac users too. Send to Kindle allows you to send documents from your computer to your Kindle or another device, such as an iPad, that has a Kindle app installed. With Send to Kindle installed you can drag and drop a document from your Mac to your Kindle and it will transfer wirelessly to your Kindle device.
Applications for Education
While you cannot edit documents on a Kindle, Send to Kindle could still be handy for anyone that needs to read reports or other documents while away from a computer and or without Internet access. Send the reports you want to review to your Kindle device and read them whenever and wherever you take your tablet. For students this could be a good way to read documents that they may have downloaded from the web to read for their courses.
