    Getting one sent tomorrow and apparently I can store things on a cloud? Luckily Nats is getting one too, so she can figure it out in no time and show me what to do. I may end up throwing it.

    Well Nats and Alan have had a field day taking the mickey (no pun) out of me... unwraps the Kindle Fire and I start by touching the on icon thingy on the pad.... it didn't come on and by which time Nats and Alan are in hysterics :/ Not for love nor money could I get that damn thing turned on. Nats has now shown me where to switch it on.... this could take a while....

    Well I couldn't get anything on it.. after Alan and Nats had hysterics about me trying to turn it on by pressing the *camera hole thing* on the front of it... I mistook it for the *on* button? So I tried randomly pressing various places on the screen to get it to come on. After they'd picked themselves up off the floor laughing.... I got it turned on via Nats showing me where it turns on. Well I never would have found it, I can hardly see the bliddy thing. Anyhoo... Tried to access Twitter, well that was a disaster all by itself (Natalie's now calling me the Tantrum Queen :/) I have since discovered I can download free books but I have to have my card details on it to get those, which I have been doing. I can't get at my emails properly and sometimes I just lose the will to live with it. I am slowly getting there but it's very painful for me. :(

    Sheesh! Well, I'd use it only as an electronic book if it were me. Sounds like you have a fancy version. The boy has a nook and it only allows downloads of ebooks and reading of them. :yes:

    Of course, he offered it to me when I had to travel for work a few months back. I took it (would have been rude not to) but couldn't figure it out! :eek: The nine year old has no problems. :sigh:

    I KNOW!!!!!! I'll send the 9 year old to you. He can be your Kindle boy. :D

    Also.... why would it have a camera on it? Yep I only wanted it for reading... Alan bought it for me. I should be grateful I know but it's not coming to the fore at the moment...............
