I purchased the "Getting Started with the Trinket" PDF from Make Magazine with their 50% off sale. The PDF was 270MBytes, more than a quarter of a Gigabyte! Yikes. This make things difficult sending the PDF to my Kindle. I used the following GhostScript command on my Linux system to reduce the size to a more manageable 21MBytes:

gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sOutputFile=GSW_Adafruit_Trinket.new.pdf GSW_Adafruit_Trinket.pdf

It seemed to work, but it complained about the PDF, saying it did not meet Adobe's specifications.
