We are preparing for the upcoming release of WinFF 1.0. It is coming along with more and easier presets, more stable code, less annoyances, and lots of bug fixes.

We hope to have the new version ready for the official launch in late march.

Prelease of WinFF 1.0

Posted under WinFF

Here is a pre-release of version 1.0 of the windows installer.

Not all new presets are included. Not all translation is done. There certainly will be some bugs. Well, that’s the whole point.

Please report back any problems you have in this topic in the forums

Author’s Guild cryies a foul over Kindle’s text to speech

Posted under Opinions

I was reading today about the how the Author’s Guild was complaining they had their right’s violated by Amazon’s Kindle 2 text to speech function, and how it will destroy the Audio book market.

Maybe it will, maybe it won’t. Although history has shown right, wrong or other wise, technology always wins.

You either embrace it and move forward, or reject it and get left behind.
