Looking to expand the surface area of your desktop but don’t want to invest in a new monitor? We have a new solution for you! You can now use your Amazon Kindle as a second screen for your daily tasks. Both the six inch Kindle and the Kindle DX both work with this new program, but it does require you to jailbreak your device.
Using your e-reader as a second monitor is not the most ideal solution for using Adobe Photoshop or watching videos, of course. Ideally, it would work best with RSS feeds or online PDF Documents. Tiny Apps has the full instructions for Mac and PCWorld has the Windows version.
