First off it doesn't bode well since I bought this book and haven't been able to download it onto my phone for reading. It keeps telling me I need to update my Kindle software yet even their website says I have the latest version. This is the first time I've ran into this on my phone after reading a dozen or more books.

Hopefully I will be able to get this fixed soon. Amazon really need to address these kinds of use issues if their going to sell electronic books. Every device that has a processor should be supported and work in my humble opinion.

Warning this has turned into a rant!

Sorry I was unable to get this book to work. Every Kindle version I have is not supported and will not download the book for reading. I've returned my digital copy to Amazon for a refund. If this is the way Amazon is going with their electronic media I feel it will close their dominance on the book industry! I'm so sick and tired of Internet companies dictating to us how and what we can use. I can understand they need to make money and can only support so many platforms with their development team and maybe they over extended their platform support. I'm surprised that Kindle supported as many platforms as they did but it seems now they are slowly reigning in their foot print and cutting out some markets.

Oh well I will look for another book to read that will keep me going for the next few weeks. Again sorry for not being able to get this book and provide a guided review like my previous book.
