Thoughts on the Kindle Fire

What the Dog Saw Kindle Fire Box on Kindles Kindle Gallery

Been with my Kindle 3 replacement, a Kindle Fire, for over a month.
Was pretty disappointed with the Fire initially but I guess I got used and got around to it’s limitations.

It’s pretty buggy though. Still buggy.
Weird things like my book covers not appearing;
Picture gallery seems to keep refreshing/updating all the time.

Despite all the quirks that this has, it plays video files beautifully and my books are working fine so I’m happy with just that for 199USD! Though I really think Amazon could have been done more with the GUI, which is totally terrible. If I wasn’t so poor, I’d probably buy an iPad in a heartbeat. Though, that’s a discussion for another day.

I’d still go for an e-ink reader for books though. I actually bought my Fire with the cheapest Kindle with a pal of mine. Ironically he ended up liking my Fire at the start and I ended up liking his Kindle.

At the end of the day as long as it displays my books, I’d forget about all the things that bug me. Nothing beats reading on the way to work and from work to home.

    No matter how hard I tried, I could never bring myself to buy and iPad. It just didn’t do it for me. Too limited. So I brought death and decay to my finances and got myself an Asus eeePad Transformer. Never regretted it. It’s a very cool version of Android, stable, easy to use and includes nice hardware like a complete physical keyboard, a microSD port and HDMI port. It was not much cheaper than an iPad, tough.
