A massive disappointment
on 28 January 2013
Two years ago, I was delighted when my wife bought me a Kindle for Xmas and it was never far from my side.
This Xmas, my wife thought she was doing me a favour by presenting me with a Kindle Fire, which, had I had previous experience of it, I would not have let her.
The majority of the applications will not be used by me and I find the lack of 3G particularly annoying as I find the only benefit of the current wireless connection is to save booting up my Desktop or Laptop or being in a location which provides free wi-fi.
I also find the promotion of Amazon and their Partners very annoying when, if I wish to avail myself of the applications offeredI must pay yet the Fire is used incessently by Amazon as a marketing tool to which I personally have not given permission.
I only wish now that my wife had advised me of her intented "surprise" so that my previous enjoyment of my Kindle was preserved.
