I have the original paperwhite and I love it.  I do a lot of reading at night or in low light situations.  I have been thinking about upgrading to the new paperwhite and was wondering who had upgraded from the original to the newer one and if it was worth it.     

Fire Talk / Got My Fire!! Coupe of questions??
« on: February 20, 2012, 02:04:50 pm »
Hubby went and bought me my Fire yesterday and I love it!!   Ordered an Oberon cover for it this morning and a decal girl skin :)  

How do you remove apps on it that you don't want?  

How do you download movies on it for use where there is no wifi and then how do you remove them once they are watched?  

I also want to buy a few additional chargers.  Where would be the best place to purchase them? 

Thanks so much :)


Fire Talk / Kindle Fire...Some Questions
« on: February 16, 2012, 02:13:49 am »
I keep hearing wonderful things about it and I am thinking my Kindle Keyboard needs a buddy.  LOL  

Here is what I would like to do with it and some questions on each:
Watch movies ~ Do they play well or are there a bunch of pausing to catch up streaming?  Is Netflix available on the Fire?

Play a few games

Manage my email~ Are the only emails that work on it hotmail/yahoo/ etc or can I use my Road Runner email?

Facebook ~ Just general updates, maybe play my games from fb and chat.

Online shopping ~

My son has an ipad and I just don't like it as its too big for me.  I want something that is smaller and much more portable.   It would be used at home, in the vehicle (when someone else is  and places where I am waiting (dr's office, hospital, kids school, etc).  I don't travel outside of the U.S.  

Thanks for your input.

Archives / WTB : Oberon photo album
« on: July 15, 2011, 02:42:04 pm »
I am looking for an Oberon Photo Album   

My mom has Alzheimer's and its just a matter of time before she will fail to recognize her loved ones (already seeing this with confusing grandsons).   I was told a photo album with pictures and name/relationship would be a good thing.  I know the Oberon leather would stand up to lots of handling as well as provide a tactile experience for her as time goes on. 

If you have one you would like to sell or know of where I can find one I would greatly appreciate it.


Let's Talk Kindle! / Can you put pdf files on a Kindle
« on: June 27, 2011, 01:18:09 am »
My son would like to know if he can download pdf files (books) to a kindle.  He has many of his D&D books in pdf files and was thinking about a kindle for them.  .

Kindle Accessories / How do I change the screen saver on my Kindle 3
« on: March 25, 2011, 01:14:16 am »
I have seen a lot of pictures where the screen saver on the kindles either match their skin or have something else on them.  How do I do this. 


Not Quite Kindle / Off topic ~ Anyone own a net book too?
« on: March 21, 2011, 02:58:38 pm »
I am looking at getting a netbook but don't know if its worth it.  I spend a lot of time in the car and in appointments with my mom (main caretaker of my mom who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer) and would love to have something very small and portable.  

Basic Uses : surf the web (mainly fb and forums like here)
                 online shopping (don't get to stores too often)
                 watching movies (downloaded to a thumb drive)
                 basic things in word program (keeping an online journal of life with mom)
Thanks ~ If this should go in another place please let me know.   

Kindle Accessories / How to Apply skin?
« on: March 21, 2011, 11:17:06 am »
I just got my Decal Girl skin in the mail.   Beautiful.  Now there are no directions I can find.  Best way to apply???   Want to make sure that I get this on properly


Ok  I am purchasing my first Kindle this afternoon :)  Well of course it has to have a cover since its going to be with me all the time and love the Oberon covers and really don't find them that much more than others that I have seen only much nicer.  (Oberon thread has me drooling)  I am pretty set on the Celtic Hounds Kindle 3 Cover in Wine  .  I want to get a decal skin for it too but don't know which one(s) would go with it the best.  I like change from time to time which is part of the reason I decided on the celtic hounds design because I figured I could switch out skins easier.   

I found this one as a skin but not sure.

I was going to order my Kindle from Amazon today but since I have to be sitting for several hours tomorrow while my son has some tests I thought about going to Staples tonight and just getting it there from them.  My biggest question is since I know how everyone on here loves Amazon's customer service for the Kindle will that still be the same if purchased elsewhere.  If not then I will just suck it up and order online and wait. 

Let's Talk Kindle! / Does the Kindle allow internet use?
« on: March 13, 2011, 11:52:36 pm »
My son just said he thought I would enjoy the Nook better since you can use Google, email, etc but I am not sold.  Thoughts?

Kindle Accessories / Do I need a light?
« on: March 13, 2011, 10:47:06 pm »
I am sitting here getting ready to order my very first Kindle and enjoy laying in bed to read at night.  Do I need to purchase a separate light for it to do so if I don't want to have other lights on in the bedroom?  If I do what do you recommend?  I see some that are separate and others that are attached to a cover.

Let's Talk Kindle! / Extended Warranty question
« on: February 15, 2011, 12:26:45 pm »
Did you purchase the extended warranty for your kindle 3.   Is it worth paying the $40 (almost 1/3 of actual price) for the additional year of protection.  And if for some reason you need to use that warranty and they have to replace your Kindle using it can you purchase a new warranty for the replacement?

Let's Talk Kindle! / Getting ready to buy a Kindle
« on: February 14, 2011, 10:21:54 pm »
Where is the best place to purchase my Kindle?  I really hadn't planned on buying a Kindle thinking that I wouldn't enjoy reading like that until I got a new cell phone that let me have a Kindle app on it and I absolutely love it!  Now a Kindle is a must (killing my cell phone battery) plus I also know they sync up as well.   I am looking at the Kindle 3 wifi only.  Any suggestions?  Is it best to get some sort of cover and case?  It will probably be with me constantly..and get a lot of use as I am a avid reader.  Also what about reading at night.  I love to read at night but don't often as to not disturb my hubby. 

Thanks so much!
