RTFMing on Demand

Amazon’s “Digital Locker” — providing you with PDFs of the manuals for the gear you buy — is nice, but has obvious drawbacks (like storing only docs for the booty you bought from them). UserManualGuide.com is set up as a central repository for PDF editions of manuals for dozens of popular models of mobile phones, cameras, TVs, DVD players, even household appliances like fridges and washing machines. The site is far from comprehensive, but if they continue to add content (and don’t run afoul of over-reaching IP police), the site should continue to get even more useful. I don’t know about you, but I for one, can be bothered to put dead tree manuals in a place when I can find them when I need them. This sounds like a job for cyberspace, don’t you think?
