terriko: I am a serious academic (Twlight Sparkle looking confused) (Serious Academic)
For what may be the first time in my life, I have voluntarily purchased 1st gen tech hardware in the form of the Kindle Fire. Normally I enjoy contemplating all the things I'd like to have and then... not buying them. It's almost a zen thing.

Anyhow, point being that I bought the device even though that was pretty much not in character, and I want to talk about the things I like and dislike about it, because I saw some very weird reviews that make it sound like a disaster or a new holy grail, and it is of course neither.

Short version: I like it a lot, and the flaws that seem to bother many reviewers are non-issues for me, but I do have a few places I'd like to see improvement (and I well might over the next year or so!)

Things I like, things that could be better, things I don't give a fig about, and other thoughts )

In the end, I now have a library book I can play games on, which pretty much meets most of my leisure needs. ;)
