Never/Used to Be/Now/Always/Announced/Rumored
The internet is great, because there is so much information.
However, not only is some of it wrong when written, there is another interesting problem.
It tends to never go away. That means that there is information out there that was right when it was published, but has become obsolete.
I’ve seen that happen with my own writing…it’s tough to go back through the blog and correct things after they have changed.
So, I thought we’d have some fun with this. I’m going to give you some statements…you need to decide if:
- It was never true
- It used to be true, but it isn’t any more (this would mean, for example, that it worked on a Kindle 1, but not on the currently sold Kindle 3s and current Kindle DX)
- It is true now, and didn’t used to be
- It’s always been true
- Amazon (or another official entity, if it isn’t an Amazon product) has announced it, but it’s not here yet
- It’s been rumored, but Amazon hasn’t said it
