Let's Talk Kindle! / A Sad Day (for my K3 and me!)
« on: January 01, 2015, 01:27:55 pm »
I picked up my K3 (my favorite Kindle) today and it is broken. Only about 1/4 of the screen will work. I'm not sure what happened to it as I always keep it in the same place and it's in a protective case. But, somehow, the screen got broken just the same. Now I am in mourning. Lol No more K3, no more 3G, and no more Kindle games. Sigh.   :(

Fire Talk / HD 7 vs. HD 6
« on: December 05, 2014, 05:09:39 pm »
I picked up an HD 7" with the intent of giving it to my nephew for Christmas.  I played around with it a bit and found I really didn't like it.  It seemed a bit "clunky," for lack of a better term.  It seemed to hang up a bit and respond slower than I expected.  I decided to return it and I ended up buying him a previous generation HD. 

I have been intrigued with the idea of the 6" since it came out so I couldn't resist getting one when they were on sale last week.  Since logically I know they should be essentially the same tablet, I was surprised at how much I like the 6"  It seems to be a bit faster on the response and it is a really good "carry around" size.  Since I also have an HDX I really don't *need* another Fire, but I really enjoy the little thing.  :) 

I'm curious if anyone else has directly compared the two and what their thoughts might be?

Fire Talk / Best Buy Kindle Fire HD

Best Buy has the Black Friday price for the Kindle Fire HD 16g (previous model). It's $99 online. I just got one for my daughter. Just a heads up if you're looking!

Fire Talk / Mayday! :)
« on: October 20, 2013, 03:39:01 pm »
I used the Mayday feature just a few minutes ago to ask my question about the device getting warm.  I also asked about the blueish tinge around the page when in the reading app or on a white screen.  The tech advisor told me that both things were normal.  I was connected fairly quickly and he was very friendly.  He verified my account info and then answered my questions.  I wasn't sure about using the feature at first, but it was so much quicker and easier than trying to describe my problem over chat.

All in all, it was kind of neat and it may be a more useful feature than I thought at first.   :D

Has anyone else tried Mayday?

Fire Talk / Fire HDX Warm?
« on: October 19, 2013, 05:55:20 pm »
I've noticed that my new Fire gets warm to the touch at the top (near camera) when I use it. Has anyone else noticed this? I just want to make sure that's normal.

Fire Talk / Scribd

Has anyone else heard of this yet?  It's like a Netflix service for books.  I'm trying the free trial now.  You can get the app from 1mobile.

Not Quite Kindle / Gadget Bags
« on: December 10, 2012, 02:49:19 pm »
I know there have been purse and bag threads before (I have loved them all!), but I am kind of looking around for a "gadget bag" to carry all of my "toys" in--especially when we travel.  I have my Kindle PW, a Nook, my iPod Touch, my 3Ds, 3Ds games, camera, various cords and adapters, etc.  I know I am not the only crazy person around who likes to have all their stuff in one spot and easy to pick up and go.  (Am I?  Maybe I am crazier than I thought.) Does anyone have a gadget bag? a bag you have repurposed for this? Anything?  I am curious!

Fire Talk / Movie How-To Question
« on: September 16, 2012, 02:10:57 pm »
I know there is an answer for this somewhere, but someone here might have the quick answer.  How do I go about getting .mp4 movies from my computer to the Fire so that they will show up on the Fire for me to play?  (KFire HD)

ETA:  Nevermind!  I figured it out. Yay! 

Fire Talk / Shipping Date Change for Fire 7" HD
« on: September 11, 2012, 05:53:26 pm »
Has anyone else had their shipping date change on their order?  I ordered the first day, had the September 14 date, and today when I went to add a gift card to my order, I had a "we are experiencing a delay with your order" message--new delivery date, September 18.  I was just curious if this has happened to anyone else or if I am just special lol.  I am a little sad now as I was looking forward to being able to play with the new Fire this weekend.

The fabric is Black Beauty.  I have only used this bag once.  I just hate to see it sitting there looking pretty when someone could love it!  It is the larger DX size.  The K2 or K3 will fit in the front zipper pocket, leaving the larger area for carry alongs and other items.  There is lots of padding to keep your reader safe!  I am asking $38 $28, shipping included, AGC or Paypal.  Just send me a PM.  :)

Sold, thanks!!
