Urgent Need to Update Kindle Reader

Kindle Amazon Update
For those who owns a Kindle, here is something that is relevant.

According to Amazon, early adopters of one of these popular e-readers need to get to update to their software, otherwise their trusty device may go kaput. Well, nothing that drastic, but everyone should get the sense of urgency.

In a new post found on its Help & Customer Service page, online retail site has informed its customers that those "using an outdated software version on Kindle e-readers require an important software update by 22 March 2016, in order to continue to download Kindle books from the Cloud, access the Kindle Store, and use other Kindle services on their device."

This isn't a warning to be taken lightly — the online retailer stresses, "If you do not update your device by 22 March 2016, you will receive the following message on your device: Your Kindle is unable to connect at this time. Please make sure you are within wireless range and try again. If the problem persists, please restart your Kindle from the Menu in Settings and try again. If you see this message on your device on or after the date, you will need to manually install the latest software update for your device.

Happily, Amazon is doing everything it can to make the process easier. There’s a handy-dandy chart at Amazon that Kindle users can refer to in order to determine which Kindle needs which updates, and where and how they can download the necessary software.

Amazon spokesperson Kinley Pearsall says, "The update will ensure their device is operating with the latest software, and that it remains compliant with continuously evolving industry standard." So hop to, friends. And get those software updates done before Tuesday (22 March 2016).
