Kindle is not for technical books

Here are some ways that Kindle (App for Mac OS X) fails me:

  • Does not support code blocks (i.e.: pre formatted text)
  • Has poor widow/orphan control (i.e.: page breaks between headings and the subsequent paragraph)
  • Touching my scroll wheel will send me many pages back or forth through the book, leaving me to waste my time getting back to where I was.

If anyone from Amazon is reading, I'll let you know that I'm not enjoying the experience. I only buy books from your store because that's the only place I can get some of them.
