OK, lets get the obvious out of the way first. Unless you are willing to break the warranty on the device, you are going to be stuck with Amazon's app store. Amazon's app store isn't too bad; it's starting to get larger apps, but still nothing from Google. Let's unpack that - no Youtube app, no Maps app, no Blogger, listen, Greader, Chrome, Gmail and so on.

Instead of waddling to the bus stop, I jogged the 23 mile round trip to my job at McDonalds, and finally, and perhaps most importantly, I found larger friends. Hand on heart, after 6 weeks of this regime, the only assessment can be "Job achieved." i think my next purchase will be a book that focuses on the aching loneliness I feel as a borderline anorexic, whose friendships are based on body mass.
