Smart move on Amazon’s part. Large-screen e-readers are great for PDF documents/textbooks, and Amazon pretty much owned that market in the US.
I hope they update the firmware sometime soon to better support the table of contents in PDF documents. Also, PDF textbooks can be quite large, so more storage wouldn’t hurt. Even with those downsides, this device is still pretty great, and I may grab one for school in the fall. I just hope they stick with it this time, and update it along with other Kindle devices. If Amazon were to release a 9.7-inch Kindle Paperwhite with updated firmware and more storage, I’d reach for my wallet immediately.
I keep it on the bottom of the screen, autohide and magnification turned on.
It might just be me, but after upgrading to Mountain Lion, I had a hard time distinguishing which of the apps in my dock were running (the little lights were hard to see). So I used a Terminal hack to make my dock 2D, so that the lights would be more visible.
One feature I really like in Windows 7 is the window preview that appears when you hover the cursor over running apps pinned to the taskbar…to replicate this in OS X, I installed Hyperdock (shown in my screen shot).
