Citrix eDocs and Amazon Kindle
I’ve only had a Kindle (3rd gen Wi-Fi) since Christmas but I already love it. It holds a ton of books, the battery lasts for weeks, and I can use it even when sitting in coach. Last week I discovered a new use, when you link up the Kindle with your Amazon account it will assign you a couple of email addresses. The addresses can be used to email content wirelessly to the device.
This feature opens up a lot of possibilities. One of the most useful has been exporting PDFs from Citrix’s eDocs site (http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/) and then sending them to the Kindle for future reading. Citrix eDocs is basically a hierarchical listing of product guides. At any point in the tree you can click on the PDF button and it will generate a document that you can print or save. Email that PDF to your Kindle’s special email address to take it anywhere.
What are you putting on your Kindle?
