Oh I just thought of another one. Can't believe this slipped my mind. It's early and I'm still groggy from turkey I guess:

Mobipocket support please. I'd love to read library books! I understand supporting the PDF ones might be a bit much to ask. Maybe if they move to .epub.

Oh you haven't tried the search yet? It does exactly what you want.

Type in an author name and it will list every book written by that author in your kindle.

Type any word and it will show every reference to that word in your kindle. Click on a particular book and it will show you every use of that word in context (shows about a paragraph of text).

Also from there you can do a one click to get a definition of the word, and it is a very good, useful dictionary at that, with examples, etc.

And one click for wikipedia lookup of that word, search the web, even search the kindle store for that word.

It is amazing, and I thought I'd seen it all, with my iphone and wii and other gadgets.

I'd like to see the home page cleaned up.

I'd like it to be organize and clean like the Kindle store is instead of just a list of all my content.

Well it does have a really cool lock mode. Not the same thing as disable, but if you push the "@" key and the "Aa" key, the screen shows a pic (from a series of very cool random pics) and you don't have to worry about anythnig being clicked. It's much faster than turning off and on and doesn't require any juice.

They call it "sleep" mode, but it's not like a computer going to sleep, it's more like a quick key lock or screen saver. Very fast and it's how I keep it on in between reading sessions (but not overnight).

But it would be neat to find a hack or someway to make this mode use user pics.
I was thinking more of being able to disable some buttons while you are reading. Like if you hold the Kindle with your left hand and keep accidentally turning pages with those buttons, you could turn them off and only use the right-side page buttons.

Better yet, just include a utility to 'remap' the buttons. Then I can disable the side ones I don't want and adjust the other ones as I please. Sure love to make the BACK button act as OK for the wheel (just try pressing the wheel when holding the kindle one-handed). And I'd love to DISABLE the right NEXT PAGE, just keeping the left side ones (or vice versa).

More fonts, Arial please!

Better file structure, the flat file structure is the number two item I dislike about the Kindle.

Support for DRMed .PRC books, number one item on my dislike list.
