I was just going thru my blog roll, when I saw over on another blog that Kindle was going to be giving us Collections. YAY! It's about time! I knew when they put it out to developers we'd get something!
When I went to see what it was all about, I found it's even better than just Collections. PASSWORDS! I thought that was a no-brainer, but I was wrong. Now I'll get my passwords...double YAY!
I found this over at Amazon. You can find out more here.
