What about the elderly?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kindle Paperwhite, 6" High Resolution Display with Next-Gen Built-in Light, Wi-Fi (Electronics)
I bought one of this for myself, and one for my husband which is old.
His hands are not like a younger person, so a Kindle with audio capability it's a must. Why on earth Amazon is not thinking about elderly? Surely money is not everything, or in their mind it is
On other versions of Kindle, it had this option, first few editions, and I was waiting for a new kindle with light that incorporate this function, in reality they discarded and all-together, and added only onto Kindle fire. Will any elderly person have the ability to handle a Kindle fire? The answer is simple no!
Initially I order the Kindle fire for him, and he was not able to hold it, so why you Amazon did this? Your ebooks are not new items, I have lots of words highlights on my ebooks I am reading, so you resale items and make plenty of money, but you are greedy, greedy, greedy!
Amazon, most of West European citizen are elderly, and it's a fact conclusion in statistic too, well known to politicians, as well as the younger population, so why don't you make an e-reader for them too, you will make lots of money don't you?
Common push it, and you will win, as you deliberately eradicated this function in favour for money to sale Kindle fire, which is useless for an elderly person anyway. Is useless to me as well, and my hands are powerful, but I am not going kill my eyes trying to look at that screen to watch a film, or play a game, I have a TV for that!
