Let's Talk Kindle! / Scary Kindle Moment
« on: March 10, 2009, 04:30:13 pm »
I had my Kindle, K2, on the counter in my kitchen this morning and I hit it by accident with my elbow.  It flipped off the counter to the floor, which is tile.  I had my cover folded back and it landed flat on the screen and keyboard.  :o  I was sure my K2 was going to be dead when I picked him up.  No, he was fine not a scratch on him and he works as good as ever.  I waited until now to make sure he was still okay before I posted this. I'm so thankful nothing happened to him.  I guess he passed his drop test, I hope to never ever repeat the test. ;D

Kindle Accessories / Noreve Cover Here!
« on: December 22, 2008, 03:34:53 pm »
My new Noreve kover arrived today.  It is wonderful.  The color is deep royal blue, it uses the same holding system as the orignal cover with the two corners and the tab the clicks into place.  The click is very audible and I didn't have to do any bending or prying to get it to work.  It has a small silver logo on the front, a pocket on the back cover, good fro tickets or notes, the inside has 3 slots for business cards and 2 for SD cards. It is well padded and smells wonderfully of leather.   It isn't' flashy or fancy but I like it.  See the pictures below:

Kindle Accessories / Anyone Have the Noreve Kindle Cover?
« on: December 13, 2008, 09:01:30 am »
I was looking at their  site and they have some really nice colors for Kindle cases.  I just wondered if anyone had gotten one of them and if they liked it.  I know they have been mentioned, but I haven't seen any feedback.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Pre-Order Not Working for Anyone Else?
« on: November 25, 2008, 12:18:39 pm »
Is any one else having a problem with the pre-order for Kindle?  I've used it twice and both times it shows processing on my account and the book never gets added to my library or my Kindle. once is still showing from August.   I've called Amazon Kindle Support and they can't figure out if this is just a glitch with my Kindle or with the pre-order function.  They are turning it over to the programmers.    They have assured me I won't get charged twice because of this, so I did the one click and it downloaded immediately.

Said it needs design upgrades and that there are not enough books available for it and they cost too much.  He liked other ebooks even less.

He must have spent all of 5 minutes with one or is reading the Kindle Forum on Amazon too much.
