Why is the older model more expensive than the newer model on eBay? Help me understand. Are there features on the S1 than more desirable?

DPT-RP1 EULA Concerns

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 08:50:30 GMT

Hi, I’m getting tempted by the RP1. Stuff like having to use the App to transfer files (at the margin) and the absence of SD card based capacity expansion (mainly this) are irritants but I think they won’t be deal breakers. What might be though was this …’s “most helpful” negative review slams the EULA (End User License Agreement) … “disallowing opt out for data collection and providing themselves with permission to collect data not just from the Digital Paper itself but also from any device connected to the Digital Paper. The Digital Paper requires connection to a PC to operate (only way to load documents into the DP), meaning that Sony has effectively given itself permission to mine unspecified data from my PC and use it without any real restrictions, including expressly permitting themselves to share my data with unspecified third parties.” I don’t really like the idea of e-readers themselves giving data (I maybe want to get updates from them but even those could really be sideloaded or done via the computer) but the idea of the company collecting (mining?) data from your PC, as presented here seems scary in potential scope. Is there any indication of what it would be collecting? Could it just be checking on the performance of the device, collecting anonymous data for optimising and resolving bugs etc or is it (and has it not ruled out) collecting info on what I read and store and sell (or “lose”) such info or even far beyond as implied in the review … On the one hand I feel like a conspiracy-nut and really want a fast, large screen (e-ink), PDF reader and I think this might be it. On the other the review spooked me hugely that I wouldn’t be able to control what data the company collects from my PC. Does anyone have any (informed?) opinions? Is what Sony is doing normal? Is the review dealing in hyperbole? Are Sony giving themselves “permission to mine unspecified data” and if so any ideas what that might mean in practice? Any purchasers had any concerns? Sorry for the rambling. Thanks for any help etc in advance.

PRS-T3 Custom on-board font help please

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 21:24:51 GMT

I've been trying to use some custom fonts without embedding them into the epubs and it doesn't seem to work for me. I think I must have made a typo somewhere so I'm hoping some fresh eyes can tell me what I'm doing wrong. 1) I copied some otf font files to my device in the folder: READER/Sony_Reader/fonts 2) I added some @font-face definitions to the top of my stylesheet and referenced the font files I added: Code: --------- @font-face { font-family: "Literata", serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/literata-regular.otf); } @font-face { font-family: "Literata", serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/literata-bold.otf); } @font-face { font-family: "Literata", serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: italic; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/literata-italic.otf); } @font-face { font-family: "Literata", serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/literata-bold-italic.otf); } --------- 3) In my "body" style I use the added font: Code: --------- body { font-family: "Literata", serif; margin: 5px; } --------- *_Result:_* I can't see any effect. The text is still all displayed in Amasis. I've tried using ttf fonts instead of otf and it doesn't seem to make any difference. In case it matters, my firmware revision is What am I doing wrong?

Someone is selling the cracked version (Android 5.1.1) of Sony DPT RP1

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 14:28:48 GMT

I found it on a Chinese online shopping website (Taobao). The cracked version runs Android 5.1.1 and the seller claims that the Android system will not affect battery. The cracked version is only based on the Japanese version. Also, the cracked version seems quite pricey (7800 CNY=1,155USD). Link:

PRS-350 Sony PRS-350 having problems, reboots constantly

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 09:31:08 GMT

I have a Sony PRS-350. Last night when I set it down after using it, it had 75% charge. This morning the battery was dead. Normally it just goes into "sleep" mode with no problems. But as I tried to charge it, it kept rebooting, which is probably why the battery went dead last night. I tried hitting the reset button for 1 second and that didn't seem to change things. Then I tried holding Reset down for 10 seconds, and that didn't seem to change things either. I have a cheap Chinese charger cord that changes a color as it's plugged in. While the cord reads 4.7vdc (within 10% tolerance), it does not charge, no amps seem to be going through it. Another cord is currently charging the device as it now says "Charging battery". It is not constantly rebooting on this different charging cord. It is actually hooked to my PC so the 2 drives appear in Windows 8 while it's charging. So, if the first Chinese cord is bad, could there be something else wrong with it? The battery is still original, as I got the device used. Thanks!
