What People Are Saying

" The Kindle Fire is a 7-inch tablet that links seamlessly with Amazon's impressive collection of digital music, video, magazine, and book services in one easy-to-use package. It boasts a great Web browser, and its curated Android app store includes most of the big must-have apps (such as Netflix, Pandora, and Hulu). The Fire has an ultra-affordable price tag, and the screen quality is exceptional for the price." - CNET " The Fire gives me the features I want at a price point that's less than half of the iPad 2. I can check my email, browse the Internet, maybe play a few games, most importantly, I can read magazines in color on a Kindle." - Gizmodo " The Fire is a marvelous device." - Chicago Sun Times " Amazon’s Kindle Fire is likely to be the first successful tablet not sold by Apple, and there are several good reasons for it: the low price of $199, the convenient, portable size of 7 inches, and a rich catalog of books, movies and music offered through Amazon’s Web-based services." - Ars Technica " There's a new mayor in Droidville. But this guy didn’t roll into town with pomp and circumstance. He strolled down Main Street and simply offered more than any other candidate, extolling a plan based on down-to-earth sensibility and affordability. Meet the Kindle Fire." - Seeking Alpha

Blast From The Past: Interactive Fiction Games Come To Kindle

The year is 1603, and you are in Elizabethan London. When you receive an invitation from an old acquaintance, you expect nothing but an entertaining evening with good food and drink. Instead, you find yourself plunged into a conspiracy of black magic involving some of the most powerful and important men in London. Will you thwart this conspiracy before it brings down the entire city? That’s up to you in “The King of Shreds and Patches,” a new interactive fiction game for Kindle. Rather, the game is new for Kindle but its concept dates back to the 1980s. “The King of Shreds and Patches” was originally available as a desktop PC game, the creation of Jimmy Maher, an expert in interactive fiction. He defines the concept of interactive fiction in more detail here, but here’s the basic definition: [Interactive fiction is] a unique form of computer-based storytelling which places the player in the role of a character in a simulated world, and which is characterized by its reliance upon text as its primary means of output and by its use of a flexible natural-language parser for input. The term originated, many years after the birth of the genre it describes, in the early 1980s with a company called Infocom. At that time, games of this sort were commonly known as “adventure games” or “text adventures,” the latter to distinguish them from the graphical brand of story-based games which were just beginning to compete with text-based titles in the marketplac

Kindle Fire Review

Kindle Fire Review 10.01.2012 | Author: James Perron | Posted in Computer Amazon caused quite a sensation in the summertime of 2011 when they revealed the upcoming release of a new 7 inch tablet with an 8 hour battery life that would run on a very customised version of Android and cost somewhat less than $200. When the final specs were exposed the interest reached fever pitch as it was very similar to the iPad 2 with a 1 GHz dual-core processor and 512 MB RAM. However , closer inspection and use of the Kindle Fire shows that far from being an iPad 2 killer, the Kindle Fire meets a very different role. The first thing you may notice when reading thru the Kindle Fire specs is the absence of some of the hardware which is commonplace even on smartphones nowadays. You will not find a camera, mike, GPS, compass or a 3G chip so what you can do with the Kindle Fire is rather restricted. Amazon has even cut off access to the Android Market-place so you can only download authorised programmes from the Kindle Store but before you balk at the concept, the Kindle Store has 16,000 apps available to download including all the most popular tools, utilities, office programs and games that you’ll find on the Android Marketplace. What Amazon has done is create a fascinating handheld tablet that leverages its vast media library to become the ultimate consumption device. The Kindle Fire isn’t designed to be a creative tablet like the Samsung Galaxy or the Apple iPad 2, it’s engineered to do one thing which is to make it as simple as practicable to access Amazon’s database of movies, television shows, ebooks, apps and music. To this end, Amazon even sells the Fire at a complete loss because it knows it’ll make up the cost in the longer term which goes some way toward explaining the awesome price.

What People Are Saying About Kindle Touch

What People Are Saying About Kindle Touch "To get a device with touch navigation and lifetime 3G and two month’s battery life for $149 is a staggering proposition." - OnlyGizmos.com "[Kindle Touch] felt instantly intuitive to use, and I’m not even someone who’s great with gadgets.I definitely think EasyReach will make it more comfortable to read in bed, which is important to me." - EW.com "The real feature to remember the Kindle Touch by is the new “X-ray” functionality that allows you to select a page and instantly have a Wikipedia page pop-up with all the info you could ever want on important words or subjects on any given page." - Gadgetsteria "X-ray is a godsend when you have put a book down for a while and forget who the players are - even if the book includes a section for cast of characters, pop-up trumps look-up every time." - Wired "The Best Part: How easy it is to do anything that has to do with a book: shopping, borrowing,research, reference, skimming, note taking. You don't have to supplement the Kindle Touch for anything book-related." - Gizmodo

Your New Kindle: What You Need to Know

Your New Kindle: What You Need to Know ARTICLE DATE : January 4, 2012 By Jamie Lendino Welcome to the digital book revolution. The latest Amazon Kindle ($79, 4.5 stars) and Kindle Touch 3G ($139, 4 stars) are Amazon's best ebook readers yet. They're also pretty easy to use. But Amazon doesn't pack a printed manual, and Amazon's Web site doesn't necessarily emphasize the simplest way to do things, either. That's where we come in. Here's what you need to know to get the most from your new Kindle—without spending a single extra cent. Join a network—any network. If you bought a Wi-Fi Kindle, go to Menu -> Settings -> Wi-Fi Networks, scan the list for your home wireless hotspot, choose it, and then enter the password. You can also do this from a public hotspot, although once you get home you'll need to add your home network later. Kindle 3G owners can get started right away using the built-in Whispernet cellular connection. If you've got a 3G Kindle, feel free skip the Wi-Fi step for now, although you may want to add your network later, as it's usually faster.

Amazon Kindles sold at amazing pace

Amazon Kindles sold at amazing pace of 1 million a week in December By Beth Jinks, Published: December 29 | Updated: Friday, December 30, 9:49 AM Dec. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Amazon.com Inc., the largest Internet retailer, said it sold “well over” 1 million Kindles a week in December, with record demand led by its Kindle Fire tablet.

Gifting of Kindle books rose 175 percent from a year earlier in the period from Nov. 25 to Christmas Day, Amazon said without providing sales data. The company introduced the Kindle Fire, which has a 7-inch display and sells for less than half the price of Apple Inc.’s least-expensive iPad, on Sept. 28 in a bid to erode Apple’s dominance. Amazon is releasing a Fire update to improve performance, make touch navigation easier and let users choose what items are displayed, after some users complained.

Kindle Fire Cut Into iPad Sales

Kindle Fire Cut Into iPad Sales, Analyst Says By John P. Mello Jr., PCWorld Jan 3, 2012 10:13 AM As many as two million fewer iPads were sold this holiday season because of Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet, according to one analyst. Selling at $199, compared to $499 for the lowest priced iPad, the Kindle Fire sold more than four million units during December alone. Overall, sales growth for the iPad during the holidays was off the mark, according to Morgan Keegan analyst Tavis McCourt. In a research note, he estimated that Apple sold 13 million iPads during the final quarter of the year, which bested its sales record for the device set in the previous quarter, 11.2 million, but fell short of McCourt's prediction of 16 million in holiday sales. Kindle Fire sales trimmed iPad sales during the holiday period by "at most" one to two million units, the analyst estimated, according to Forbes.

The Kindle 2 Home Screen

The Kindle Home screen displays a list of all of your Kindle reading materials — books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, personal documents, as well as audiobooks. It serves as a personal बूक्षेल्फ़ for all of your reading material, as well as a starting point to access other Kindle features. To display the Home screen, press the Home button on the right edge of your Kindle. By default, the Home screen lists all of the items that you have on your Kindle beginning with the recently viewed (or acquired) items. Each type of content has a slightly different description and label. You can read more about the types of content available in Chapter 3.
Kindle Books
Books are shown by title and author. Below the book title are a series of dots which give you approximation of how long the book is. Bold dots within the series indicate how far along are in the book based on the last page you viewed.
Periodicals include newspapers and magazines that can be purchased as a single issue or as subscription delivered on a regular basis. Your Home screen lists the most recent issue of each periodical you have on your Kindle. Older issues appear inside a grouping called Periodicals:
Back Issues. Selecting the grouping takes you to a screen that displays the back issues of all the periodicals you have on your Kindle. Note that Kindle automatically deletes issues that are more than seven issues old to free up space for new content. An exclamation point next to an issue indicates that it will be deleted within 48 hours.
Blogs are subscription-based and appear on the Home screen as a single entry like books. As additional blog content arrives, it is added to the item and older entries are rolled off, much like a blog works on a computer.
Audiobooks look similar to books, but they will be labeled in the Home screen as audio content. Like regular books, they have a progress indicator that shows where you are in the audiobook

Reading on Kindle 2

Kindle retains the best qualities of printed books, but adds many features that are available only through digital technologies such as word look up, changeable text size, and clippings. This chapter explains more about Kindle's reading features.
Types of Content There are many types of reading material available for your Kindle such as books, newspapers, magazines, and blogs. If you want to begin purchasing and downloading reading material, you can learn more in Chapter 5. You can also purchase audiobooks from Audible.com and even have Amazon convert and deliver personal documents to your Kindle. The different types of supported content are described below.
Thousands of books - both popular and hard-to-find - are available in the Kindle Store. Once you buy a book, it usually arrives wirelessly in under a minute. Because you can't always judge a book by its cover, you can download and read a sample of most Kindle books for free. If you like it, simply buy it from within the sample and continue reading. You can learn more about this feature in Chapter 5.
The Kindle Store offers a selection of U.S. and international newspapers. Subscriptions are delivered wirelessly to your Kindle overnight so that the latest edition can arrive on your device every morning, and every newspaper subscription starts with a free trial. If you subscribe, your favorite periodicals are delivered wirelessly wherever you go, whether you are at home or on the
road. If you are traveling outside of the US, you can still retrieve your newspapers from the Manage Your Kindle page at Amazon.com. You can learn more about this feature in Chapter 9.
The Kindle Store offers an expanding selection of magazines to meet every interest. As with newspapers, all periodical subscriptions are delivered wirelessly and start with a free trial.
The Kindle Store offers over one thousand Kindle blogs, including up-to-the-minute news feeds and topical blogs. Blog categories include business, technology, sports, politics, culture, entertainment, humor, and science. Kindle blogs are sent to you wirelessly throughout the day,
allowing you to keep current. Unlike traditional feeds, which often only provide headlines, Kindle downloads the complete feed onto the device so you can read them even when you are not wirelessly connected.
Personal Documents
In addition to purchased content, you can read your personal documents on Kindle. If you have files formatted as text, Microsoft Word, HTML, PDF, or image files like GIF or JPEG, you can e-mail the files as attachments to your Kindle e-mail address. Amazon will convert the files if necessary and send them back to your computer for free or wirelessly to your Kindle for a small fee, whichever you prefer. Currently, the conversion of PDF documents is an experimental feature. Some complex PDF files might not format correctly on your Kindle. For more information on transferring, converting, and e-mailing your personal documents, see Chapter 8.
You can download and enjoy thousands of audiobooks from Audible.com. Due to their large file size, audiobooks must be downloaded to your PC or Mac over your existing Internet connection and then transferred to Kindle over USB. Listen to audiobooks through Kindle's speakers or plug in your headphones for private listening. For more information on transferring and listening to audiobooks.
Background Music
If you like to listen to music while you use your Kindle, use your computer to transfer MP3 files to the "music" folder on your Kindle. When you select "Play MP3" from the Experimental page, each of the songs will play in the order they were added to your Kindle. Content Formatting on Kindle When you read a book on Kindle, you will find that the formatting generally follows the printed version of the book. If the book has a table of contents, it will appear in Kindle. If the book हस
chapters, a preface, an illustrated cover, and so forth, these will be displayed.
