Robin Sloan has noticed something interesting about Amazon's 'Manage Your Kindle' web service:

As it happens I rarely use the web page to manage my Kindle1 so that's my excuse for not having noticed this before now and I'm sticking to it!
- I mostly manage my Kindle content through the client software on my iPad or Mac. ↩
