Kindle Fire Update

Amazon just pushed out an update for the Fire. Apparently it phones home regularly. It took something like four minutes to complete.

And now they've changed aspects of the user interface. For one thing, if you highlight a word now, it automatically looks it up in the dictionary. I'm not positive that's a new feature, but I never noticed it before.

Used to be if you highlighted a lot of words, well, they were highlighted. Now you get a popup menu that says "Note   Highlight  Share   Search".

Another thing is that once the update was complete, it downloaded all my books again.

I wonder what else changed that I haven't yet noticed?

UPDATE: By the way, the dictionary wasn't very good. It didn't know what a cestus was.
