Kindle-Card Hack

super slide
Originally uploaded by bjorkish

So, someone you know and love knows and loves a Kindle? Here's how to give them a cool surprise:

  1. Make sure you're on their list of "approved 'From' email addresses," and that you have their Kindle's email address.
  2. Create a fun slideshow for them with occasion-appropriate images and wit.
  3. Save the slides as a PDF.
  4. Email to the recipient's Kindle.

Your gift will magically appear in a place they probably don't expect, and hopefully bring a smile. (One that justifies the $.10 it'll cost 'em.)

[Update:] Tip: portrait-orienting the PDF seems to work best.
