Fire Talk / Is it just me or the HD6 fire?
« on: November 01, 2014, 09:37:22 pm »
Is it just me or is my Fire 6 acting up? Periodically when I go to open it I will first see my book covers or the page I am reading then it goes to a blank screen with the white line crossing at the top under the status bar. It doesn't matter if it is connected to the wifi or not. The other day I took it with me while I waited at dr office. I turned it on expecting to continue reading (wifi was off). It opened to the page then went to the black screen with the white line moving across the top. I waited and waited and gave up after ten minutes. When I came home I opened it up and there was my page waiting to be read like nothing had happened.  Sometimes I need to go to the home screen and wait while it loads and then go back into the book section. I am using this as my library so I don't have any other apps, music, movies, etc loaded just books. 

When this first began I figured it was indexing the downloaded books but now I am wondering if there is a problem or if anyone else has experienced the same thing?  Any thoughts on it? Am hoping it isn't defective.  Thanks

Other (non-Kindle) eReaders / 2013 Nexus 7 and kindle app
« on: July 30, 2013, 03:36:43 am »
So I broke down and got the new nexus 7. Have to say the screen is great but I am having questions about it already. For a fast processor it seems to be operating at the same speed as the previous generation and it is really laggy opening apps. Am wondering if I just have a lemon.  I really debated on whether or not to get it or either the Samsung Note 8 or Tab 3-8.  Now I am wondering if I should have went with one of them instead.  I love the screen and while it is smaller I have noticed that without a case it is awkward to hold and not cover up one side of the speakers or trigger the page turning on the side since there is a very small edge expect for the top or bottom. I don't like the lack of an sd card slot but I knew that when I bought it and the fact that Google thinks everything should be in the cloud. That was the real debate for me regarding the other two devices vs this one.  Overall I like this device but think I will be taking it back in to make sure it isn't just defective with the slowness of it.

Now for the kindle app:

 The kindle app is a nightmare.  It keeps locking up/freezing. Thought at first it was because of the 4.3 os but I have noticed it doing the same thing on a couple of other android devices running 4.1 and gingerbread 2.3. The device with the gingerbread 2.3 OS won't even work at all. Worked fine until the last couple of "updates" so am thinking that it has some bugs in it that Amazon hasn't fixed.

Has anyone else had problems with the kindle android app being buggy?

Interested in getting either the Amazon cover or the M-Edge Latitude jacket for the DX. Would like blue but am open to another color. 

Archives / SOLD: Both K2 and K3 Please remove
« on: February 26, 2011, 08:47:00 am »
Trying to downsize on my toys. Both the K2 and K3G have rarely been used because I got an ipad shortly after getting these. I also have a DX and the white K3 which I prefer. Can't justify 3 kindles and ipad to boot!

FS:  Kindle 2G $100 Rarely used, no issues with it, works great. Got it right before the K3 came out but not within the return window date.

Has butterfly skin on it and will come with real leather Sapphire blue M-edge Platform jacket. Works great no dings etc. No box or paperwork with it. Does have USB charger cord and plug.  

FS:  K3 3G Graphite $170
Rarely used, works great and still has 5 months left on Amazon 1 year warranty.  It will come with an M-edge capital case (purple). Will come with original box, paperwork and USB charger cord and plug. Bought it in August but ended up using the ipad and DX more. Also decided to get the white K3 and find I like it better.

 There is some fading of the arrow keys around the square button but none on any other keys. Since it isn't an issue with me, I haven't done anything about it. Other than entering my registration data, I haven't used the keyboard so can't tell you if the fading will affect the other keys or not. At any rate you would still have the warranty to exchange it.

Let's Talk Kindle! / outside of amazon Kindle buy and warranty
« on: January 28, 2010, 11:42:56 pm »
Does anyone know if you buy a kindle from say ebay etc, and it is new or unregistered, is the amazon warranty valid for the new owner. Do they go by the date you register it or the date of the original sale? Am curious as I am thinking of getting one.

Kindle Accessories / Verilux light question
« on: January 28, 2010, 05:24:24 pm »
Has anyone used the Verilux book light?

I am curious how it's light output compares to the mighty bright, kindle kandle and M-edge 2 light. I am seeing it listed for use with the DX. I am thinking of it for the K2 right now. 

Hi everyone.
I've been a kindle addict for over a year and half and loving every minute of it. My K1 and I live across the pond from Seattle in the Silverdale/Bremerton area.
I have been a rabid reader since childhood except for the past few years when I didn't have as much time. Since I received my kindle 1 in Nov of 08, my reading has been rekindled. Of course now I don't do anything else. This past year I completed a year and half of chemo for breast cancer and I can tell you having a kindle was a life saver for commuting on the ferry and treatments at the Seattle VA.

My other interests when I can fit them into my schedule include genealogy, watching my movies with my dogs (another addicting hobby) and going to Pow Wows.

Am considering getting another kindle this year. Am drawn to the DX but will wait and see if they come out with a new kindle within the next couple of months.

Didn't know about the get together event. Maybe I will hear about the next one and it will be closer.

Kindle Accessories / Anyone notice the M-edge light level difference
« on: August 15, 2009, 10:43:33 pm »
I have the new M-edge light and I like it but have a question.  Has anyone else notice if there is a difference in the two light levels? There is barely a difference in the two settings on the one I have. Am wondering if they are all like that or if mine has a problem. 

Suggestions, Comments / time used for posts
« on: August 15, 2009, 10:11:19 pm »
Okay so the times you all list when we do a post are real confusing, at least for me. I am use to both the 12 and the 24 hour clock system. I am not sure which one you are following. From 12 midnight to 12 noon, there is a zero (0) in front of the time.  0100, 0900 etc. That means it is morning (am)   For evening times if you are using the 12 hour clock, it does not have the zero (0) in front. It is 9:00pm, 4:30 pm. If you are using the 24 hour clock it would be 2100 (that is 9pm) 1630 (that is 4:30pm.  There are no : between the the hour and minutes ( 21:00, 16:30) unless you are in Europe.

12 hour time                    24 hour time            your present system
01:00 am                          0100                       01:00
09:00                               0900                       09:00
1200 noon                         1200                       12:00pm
 1:00 pm                            1300                       01:00pm
  9:00pm                             2100                       09:00pm

Don't mean to whine, just bugs me
