Well. I went and got my Mothers day package from my son and I was thinking it was the Office program he had meant to get me for the laptop, which would have been a bit more prudent.....for my needs......
but he spoiled me with a kindle fire and a 50 $ gift card for kindle stuff at amazon
I can play movies on it so with a couple books for it and downloading a bunch I already have in my library for kindle on amazon , I rented War Horse, the movie as I have really wanted to see it and am watching it now after I was able to thank him.
I see how one has web access too, very cool.
A nice mauve leather cover for it too.
I ordered a stylus for it since my fat fingers get in the way of the touch keyboard.. a silver one. Should go nicely together......
My son said he thought it would be much handier when I have to travel on the buses around here for so long, instead of trying to manage with my laptop to do reading and such things.
If I can get the Office program I can transfer my writing and put the docs on the kindle fire to review and maybe put notes on it? or at least review and edit later....
oh, gee the cover folds up to hold it for viewing movies.
Not sure if the reading turns 90 degrees so you can read it like that too? ( horizontally? ) Anyone know?
I sorta wish he had just given me a debit gift card so I could have gotten the food saver instead.... if he was going to do this kind of spending. ( being more practical, but this was very kind of him to do.)
I will certainly use it!
