Briefly: Gmail compose window changes, Android Kindle app updates
Google is updating its e-mail composition interface for all users, removing the old version entirely and replacing it with a pop-up version. The new e-mail creation window, already used by a number of users for some weeks now and set to roll out to everyone over the next few days, takes the form of a pop-up window in the bottom right corner, which Google <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291819==https://plus.google.com/u/0/+Gmail/posts/Pkrnsy8yEPx" rel='nofollow'>says</a> allows for users to monitor their inbox while writing new messages, with the added option of a full-screen mode for more workspace.<br />

<strong>Amazon adds sorting options, reading timer to Android Kindle app</strong><br />
<br />
Amazon has updated its Kindle reading app for <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291817==https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.amazon.kindle" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">Android</a>. The new version adds the option to sort the library by title, author, and the most recently read, and a number of stability improvements, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291818==http://www.engadget.com/2013/08/13/kindle-for-android-app-update/" rel='nofollow'>writes</a> <em>Engadget</em>. The app will also keep track of reading speeds, and will estimate how much time it will take for the reader to get through the remainder of a chapter and the book in its entirety.

I don't understand why they don't move to a tabbed interface like Yahoo Mail. It is so much easier! You then can change in the middle of a new message to searching messages, to compose another message, to ... and all without leaving the message you are composing.

I hate the new compose window. My choices are bottom right and maximized. Ugh.
