Fire envy

Today I’m just hanging around, being jealous of everybody who’s playing with a Kindle Fire. Sadly, while I want one, I don’t need one. Or, more correctly, I can’t justify buying one when I have an iPad.

If you got one, do you love it?

I bought my mom the Kindle Touch 3G and it was delivered yesterday. It’s pretty awesome! (Of course I had to play with it. I can’t show Mom how to use it if I don’t know how, right?) (Although it’s hands-down the most simple-to-use device I’ve ever seen in my life.) I get to keep it until Thanksgiving, when she comes to visit.

So many new gadgets just before Christmas. Anything you’ve got your eye on?

    I’m really happy with my iPad, but the Kindle Fire gives me a case of the wants! Though what I really want is a Fire sized iPad. I think.

    I’ve had my Fire for four days now and I love it. I didn’t need it, but at 1/3 the price of the iPad, it was the right choice for me. I don’t expect to use it for productivity. I basically wanted to replace my old Kindle 2, check my email, and play Angry Birds and Words with Friends. This works for me. Oh, and I kick ass on the air hockey game…
