There’s a little-known trick to expand the available storage space on Kobo ebook readers, including the Kobo Aura HD, the Kobo Glo, Kobo Mini, and Kobo Touch (sorry the Kobo Aura is left out).

It’s a straightforward trick that doesn’t […]

Kobo eReader Tip: Calibre Settings for Minimizing Wasted Space

If you’ve read any of my reviews for Kobo eReaders lately, the Kobo Mini, Kobo Glo, and Kobo Aura HD, you’ll notice that I complain a lot about how Kobo chooses to format ebooks. My main issue is with all the wasted space. Kobo insists on adding a huge bar at the bottom of a […]

“Digital Ink” Screens Look Just as Good as E Ink Screens

Earlier this month I posted an article about the Trekstor Pyrus Mini ebook reader. Not only is it the world’s smallest dedicated ereader with its 4.3″ screen, it’s also one of just a handful of ebook readers to ever use an epaper screen not produced by the company E Ink.
