Link added.</title><description>&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kcookbooks-sale&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://andrys.com/kcookbooks120917only-size600.jpg&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;600&quot; height=&quot;524&quot; hspace=14 vspace=7&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  2. &lt;br /&gt;
  3. &lt;br /&gt;
  4. There are tons of specials everyday as most of you know, and you&#39;ll always see the various types linked on the Reference column at the right of this blog.&lt;br /&gt;
  5. &lt;br /&gt;
  6. But &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kcookbooks-sale&quot; target=_blank&gt;this particular&lt;/a&gt; Kindle book sale caught my eye. &amp;nbsp; One book focuses on how to best cut various vegetables, others give tips on how to get best results with instant pots and pressure cookers (I have neither yet).&lt;br /&gt;
  7. &lt;br /&gt;
  8. Since these are normally priced quite a bit higher and I need a lot of help :-), I already ordered some (I&#39;m useless in the kitchen, so this is a start) and thought that as little as I blog lately, I&#39;d add the special alert for others. &lt;br clear=left&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  9. There are about 71 books on this sale, with 20 shown on each full page.&lt;br /&gt;
  10. &lt;br /&gt;
  11. Most appear to be more-highly customer-rated titles. &amp;nbsp;So, if these interested &lt;i&gt;me&lt;/i&gt;, they&#39;ll probably be of interest to people who actually spend time in the kitchen. &amp;nbsp;Each selection has a &quot;&lt;i&gt;Look Inside&lt;/i&gt;&quot; feature, so you can see whether the layout and content is really of interest to you.&lt;br /&gt;
  12. &lt;br /&gt;

Updated for Kindle 10th Anniversary page added tonight.</title><description>&lt;center&gt;&lt;table width=95% border=1&gt;&lt;tr&gt;&lt;td align=&quot;center&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  24. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlereadersale-oct2017&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.andrys.com/kindlereader-sale-oct2017.jpg&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; height=&quot;216&quot; vspace=0 border=1&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/td&gt;&lt;/tr&gt;
  25. &lt;/table&gt;&lt;/center&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  26. &lt;br /&gt;
  27. Amazon just announced a &quot;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;limited time&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&quot; discount of $&lt;b&gt;30 off&lt;/b&gt; select Kindle E-readers. &amp;nbsp;You&#39;ll see which ones in the Comparison chart image above. &lt;br /&gt;
  28. &lt;br /&gt;
  29. If you click on the image, it&#39;ll take you to Amazon&#39;s full Comparison Chart of features for each E-reader, or you can click &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlereadersale-oct2017&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt; for that.&lt;br /&gt;
  30. &lt;br /&gt;
  31. Their &quot;Limited time&quot; deals tend to be sudden and short-term, but their e-mail wording was: &lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; $30 off select Kindle E-readers, plus more deals &lt;br /&gt;
  32. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; Celebrating 10 years of reading &#39; &lt;/blockquote&gt;The basic Kindle, normally $80, is $50 for or however long they run this. &amp;nbsp;That&#39;s probably the lowest price I&#39;ve seen on that model. &amp;nbsp;It has &lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/audible-freetrial&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon&#39;s Audible&lt;/a&gt; capability (using Bluetooth, same method for the New Oasis) but does not have built-in lighting.&lt;br /&gt;
  33. &lt;br /&gt;
  34. &amp;nbsp; It&#39;s the lightest one of this current set, weight-wise -- an important factor for many. &amp;nbsp;Its display resolution is 167ppi vs the 300ppi of the other Kindles. &amp;nbsp;The text would be a little less bold than on the other Kindles. &lt;br /&gt;
  35. &lt;br /&gt;
  36. The Paperwhite&#39;s current sale price is just $10 more than the regular price of the basic Kindle but has built-in lighting and the higher-definition display, although it has no Audible capability.&lt;br /&gt;
  37. &lt;br /&gt;
  38. &lt;br /&gt;
  39. Will get this quick blog entry off, so blog readers will be aware of the temporary $30 discount and have enough time to read the comparisons and all of the Amazon page details to see which features might be more or less important for you.  &lt;br /&gt;
  40. &lt;br /&gt;
  41. &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;UPDATE:&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; Amazon has added a &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/k10th-anniv-deals&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;Kindle 10th Anniversary Deals page&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; and appears to still be adding to it.&lt;br /&gt;
  42. &amp;nbsp; Included are better trade-in terms than usual, though not startling. &amp;nbsp;But they&#39;re featuring a possible $75 toward a new Paperwhite when trading in an older Kindle E-reader (another &quot;limited time&quot; offer), depending on the condition of your used Kindle and the way in which you prefer to receive $credits.&lt;br /&gt;
  43. &lt;br /&gt;

Waterproof, 7&quot; high-res - 300 ppi, with built-In Audible.  Updated.</title><description>&lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/allnewoasis&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://www.andrys.com/allnewoasis.jpg&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;340&quot; height=&quot;301&quot; hspace=14 vspace=7&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  58. Amazon&#39;s &quot;&lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/allnewoasis&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;All New Oasis&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&quot; (&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/oasis-2017-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;UK&lt;/a&gt;, &amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/oasis-2017-ca&quot;target=_blank&gt;Canada&lt;/a&gt;) was announced today.&lt;br /&gt;
  59. &lt;br /&gt;
  60. What&#39;s not new is that it&#39;s pricey, as it&#39;s Amazon&#39;s &lt;br /&gt;
  61. premium-featured Kindle E-reader.&lt;br /&gt;
  62. &lt;br /&gt;
  63. &lt;b&gt;New features:&lt;/b&gt; First waterproofed Kindle (IPX8 rating); twice the amount of basic storage as the other Kindles and you can choose 32 GB if you need it (for an additional $30) &quot;to hold more magazines, comics, newspapers, and audiobooks&quot;; dedicated page-turn buttons on an ultra-thin 3.4mm 7&quot; display that shows 30% more text; and, as before, adjustable front-lighting that&#39;s said to be twice as effective as the ones in other Kindle models.&lt;br /&gt;
  64. &lt;br /&gt;
  65. &lt;b&gt;How effective is the water proofing?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  66. Amazon explains that it&#39;s &quot;rated to protect against immersion in up to two meters of &lt;i&gt;fresh&lt;/i&gt; water for up to 60 minutes. &amp;nbsp;And it&#39;s built to withstand getting splashed at the beach or dropped in the bathtub, hot tub, or pool.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  67. &amp;nbsp; They give &lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/oasiswaterproofinginfo&quot; target=_blank&gt;more details&lt;/a&gt; on what to do if it gets wet; what steps to take to dry it; and how to reduce the likelihood of water damage.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  68. &lt;br /&gt;
  69. &amp;nbsp; A waterproof Kindle has been a long-requested feature, so it&#39;s likely to generate a lot of interest.&lt;br /&gt;
  70. &lt;br /&gt;
  71. As with the &lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/kindlenew2016&quot;&gt;basic Kindle&lt;/a&gt; model for 2017, this one comes with &lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/audible-freetrial&quot; target=_blank&gt;Audible&lt;/a&gt; for those who prefer to listen to their books when that&#39;s more convenient. &lt;br /&gt;
  72. &lt;br /&gt;
  73. Here&#39;s Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kcompare2017&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;comparison table&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; of its various E-readers as of October 2017. &amp;nbsp;(See &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/oasis-2017-uk#compare&quot; target=_blank&gt;UK&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/kcompare2017-ca&quot; target=_blank&gt;Canada&lt;/a&gt;.)&lt;br /&gt;
  74. &lt;br /&gt;
  75. Note that the Oasis has 12 LEDs (said to give more contrast and darker letters) + adaptive light sensor, while the others have either 0, 4, or 6 LEDs. &lt;br /&gt;
  76. &lt;br /&gt;
  77. The Kindle &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlevoyage&quot; target=_blank&gt;Voyage&lt;/a&gt; has the &quot;page press&quot; feature (less definite action), while the &lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/oasis-2017&quot; target=_blank&gt;Oasis&lt;/a&gt; has actual &lt;b&gt;page-turn buttons&lt;/b&gt;, a feature that many miss from the original Kindles (eons ago, it seems).&lt;br /&gt;
  78. &lt;br /&gt;
  79. The &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/paperwhite3&quot; target=_blank&gt;Paperwhite&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlevoyage&quot; target=_blank&gt;Voyage&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/oasis-2017&quot; target=_blank&gt;Oasis&lt;/a&gt; all have the option of free Cellular Connectivity for an additional $50 (with the Oasis), &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;BUT&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; when trying out the &#39;Customization&#39; of purchase options, I cannot choose the cellular-connectivity capability without the package now being automatically 32 GB (rather than 8, even if not needed) and then $30 more, AND the process also selects &quot;&lt;b&gt;without&lt;/b&gt; special offers&quot; (ads on the lock screen) -- an option that is valued at $20. &amp;nbsp;These all add up to the $100 difference, instead of just $50 for the cellular option.&lt;br /&gt;
  80. &lt;br /&gt;
  81. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;My guess:&lt;/b&gt; they probably prefer not downloading graphics-heavy ads over cellular-networks as data that Amazon would be paying for, so they are foregoing the &#39;special offers&#39; in this case by automatically charging the $20 to not see them, and it all gets rolled into the $100 additional cost to be able to download data while at the beach or on the bus, etc -- unless the customization limits are in error, but I don&#39;t think they are.&lt;br /&gt;
  82. &lt;br /&gt;
  83. &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;ALSO NOTE:&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; The &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazonpoweradapter&quot; target=_blank&gt;official Amazon 5W USB Power Adapter&lt;/a&gt; is NOT included with even this premium &lt;nobr&gt;E-reader.&lt;/nobr&gt; &amp;nbsp;It&#39;s been a policy for some time to not include the power adapter, since many already have them for other or earlier Amazon E-readers or Kindle Fire tablets, and so Amazon includes only the USB cable that connects to a power adapter. &amp;nbsp;Therefore, the cost when you want to add that adapter is another $20 (UK, £17).&lt;br /&gt;
  84. &lt;br /&gt;
  85. I still read on a Paperwhite3 (and still love the old thing). &amp;nbsp;Since I don&#39;t read around water, although I know many do, I&#39;m not likely to upgrade, even if reviews of the first Oasis found it easier to hold and a pleasure to use. &amp;nbsp;I also don&#39;t send for review copies, as I don&#39;t have the time these days, but I&#39;ll watch the reviews and forum discussions and bring back any interesting info I find.&lt;br /&gt;
  86. &lt;br /&gt;
  87. The premium leather standing cover and the &quot;Water-safe Fabric&quot; standing cover ($15 less than the premium cover) are shown when you get to the Customization page that&#39;s now a part of the &#39;Add to Cart&#39; process. &amp;nbsp;Inescapable :-)  &lt;br /&gt;
  88. &lt;br /&gt;
  89. &lt;b&gt;Expected delivery date&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  90. While this new Oasis is &quot;Available&quot; for pre-order now, I&#39;ve not yet seen an official delivery date, BUT on a listing I saw that includes &quot;not-for-retail&quot; (yet) models, the date given is &lt;i&gt;October 31&lt;/i&gt;. &amp;nbsp;That includes an int&#39;l page designated &quot;not for retail&quot; so I&#39;ll give the link to that when it is ready.&lt;br /&gt;
  91. &lt;br /&gt;
  92. &amp;nbsp; Will update this blog as I get more info. &amp;nbsp;Be sure to read the linked-Oasis page for details on the new software - enhanced layout and formatting features.&lt;br /&gt;

Updated 10/1/17.</title><description>&lt;br /&gt;
  108. &lt;b&gt;&lt;font size=+1&gt;Amazon is releasing &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;October 11&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;, 2017 the All-New Fire HD &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;10&quot;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; tablet, with higher resolution, speed, and Alexa voice control.&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  109. &lt;br /&gt;
  110. Also, many are not aware that the &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;latest Fire tablet models&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; (FIRE OS 5+) can be set up to use &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Google Play Store&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;. &amp;nbsp;I&#39;ll do a separate article on that soon.  &amp;nbsp;No rooting or system modifications are involved.&lt;br /&gt;
  111. &lt;br /&gt;
  112. &lt;b&gt;10/1/17 &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Update&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; - &lt;font size=1&gt;&lt;i&gt;Original article 9/26/17&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  113. &amp;nbsp; I&#39;ve found that the earlier, simple instructions to add Google Play Store and Services to Fire tablets with Fire OS 5 and above, now require somewhat different Google files, depending on which generation Fire tablet you have or will have soon. &amp;nbsp;There are also situations in which older files work better now for many, but some of the Google Play files will auto-update with time. &amp;nbsp;There are workarounds for various minor problems encountered by some, and I&#39;ll explain these, although maybe not until after a deadline I have for mid-October. &amp;nbsp;I&#39;ve updated the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwpkindles&quot; target=_blank&gt;general reference chart&lt;/a&gt; of current available Kindle eReaders and tablets internationally.&lt;br /&gt;
  114. &lt;br /&gt;
  115. &amp;nbsp; Of interest, maybe: Amazon is still showing the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firehd6-16gb&quot; target=_blank&gt;2016 Fire HD &lt;i&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;6&quot;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/i&gt; tablet&lt;/a&gt; available in the &lt;i&gt;16 GB&lt;/i&gt; version, adding &quot;&lt;i&gt;Only 1 left in stock (more on the way)&lt;/i&gt;&quot; and citing Oct 3 as a possible delivery day for the one still in stock. &amp;nbsp;I&#39;ve seen unhappiness that this pocketable and light, book-sized tablet might be ended, so this could be good news (or just a mistake).&lt;br /&gt;
  116. &lt;br /&gt;
  117. Here is 1) Amazon&#39;s current &lt;a href=&quot;https://bit.ly/firehd10compare&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;Fire tablet comparison&lt;/b&gt; table for the 3 main tablets&lt;/a&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  118. &amp;nbsp; &lt;font size=1&gt;(7&quot;, 8&quot; 10&quot; models but not the special &quot;Kids Editions&quot;) &lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  119. and 2) their &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firetablets2017&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;tablet comparison page&lt;/b&gt; for all 5&lt;/a&gt; editions.  &lt;center&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  120. &lt;table border=&quot;1&quot; hspace=&quot;31&quot; cellpadding=5 style=&quot;width: 98%;&quot;&gt;&lt;tbody&gt;

Updated 4/17/17, 11:00 pm  for current models + the new BnR USB Power Kit.</title><description>&lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/beam-n-read3&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;img align=&quot;left&quot; src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/beam-n-read-3.jpg&quot; height=&quot;99&quot; width=&quot;160&quot; /&gt;&lt;b&gt;BEAM N READ 3-Led light&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt;, made by &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/asflightware&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;ASF Lightware Solutions&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  219. &lt;br /&gt;
  220. As regular readers will remember, my personal favorite in reading lights (I&#39;ve bought too many different types) has been the &lt;i&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/beam-n-read3&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Beam N Read&lt;/a&gt; &quot;LED 3 Hands Free Travel Reading Light; for Kindle, Power Outages &amp;amp; More&quot;&lt;/i&gt; that I first wrote about in early October 2010. &amp;nbsp;I&#39;m still using the 3-led light version nightly, as it does well enough so that I almost never need the 6-led light one. &amp;nbsp;I definitely use it when walking outside at night.&lt;br /&gt;
  221. &lt;br /&gt;
  222. &amp;nbsp; I&#39;m including much of what I wrote at the time. &lt;!--, as the company who makes the Beam N Read, noting my now long-term enthusiasm, is offering a 25% discount to readers of this blog for &lt;nobr&gt;Dec. 26 -&lt;/nobr&gt; Jan. 1, 2012.  Sorry I didn&#39;t get to this earlier today.  Was caught up in getting some information together for owners of the new Kindles found under trees yesterday.--&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  223. &lt;br /&gt;
  224. &lt;b&gt;Note updating information:&lt;/b&gt; The company saw my blog article and wrote to add updated information on both lights. &amp;nbsp;The 6-LED-light link to the older model still works and, if used, the newer model is sent, along with their BNR CL1M magnifier kit which contains one lens, but the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/beam-n-read6r&quot; target=blank&gt;new 6-LED model&lt;/a&gt; ordered direct at the revised link is sent along with the two filters and delivered using PRIME shipping.&lt;br /&gt;
  225. &lt;br /&gt;
  226. &amp;nbsp; As before, I&#39;m including a couple of photos below to show light coverage on my older non-lit Kindle with &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/k3cvr-light&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;its Amazon cover, with built-in light&lt;/a&gt; (no longer available)  vs. using what became my favorite light for the various Kindles I have.&lt;br /&gt;
  227. &lt;br /&gt;
  228. This portable light is worn around the neck and has an adjustable strap. &amp;nbsp;The &lt;nobr&gt;3-LED&lt;/nobr&gt; light model is now said to last about 100 hours (based on the ANSI/NEMA FL-1 Standard: continuous runtime on high to 10% of initial brightness), and I do use it nightly for weeks before needing to change batteries.&lt;br /&gt;
  229. &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; Normal intermittent use (I can&#39;t imagine anyone running a light like this for 2 to 4 days straight) will result in actual runtime over 120 hours shining 3 LEDs, they&#39;ve found.&lt;br /&gt;
  230. &lt;br /&gt;
  231. &amp;nbsp; The 3-LED model no longer comes with batteries but ships with two blue-light blocking filters (orange and red, softening the light, helpful for partners at night too). &amp;nbsp;The company added the orange filter because many use the light to read or stitch late in the evening.  &amp;nbsp;Removing the batteries eliminated the occasional problem of battery leakage in the box and helped keep a lower retail price despite increases in manufacturing cost.&lt;br /&gt;
  232. &lt;br /&gt;
  233.  &amp;nbsp; (See the new &lt;a href=&quot;#usbpower&quot;&gt;USB Power Kit&lt;/a&gt; at the end of this blog report.)&lt;br /&gt;
  234. &lt;br /&gt;
  235. &amp;nbsp;Because it&#39;s very lightweight and flexible with a patented flip-up design, reflector, and the adjustable strap, I usually have it on when I&#39;m home. &amp;nbsp;Going downstairs at night or to a less well-lit room, or when I just can&#39;t see something well enough, I can just turn this on briefly, which is done by flipping up the hood/reflector.  I also use it to read fine print.  &lt;br /&gt;
  236. &lt;br /&gt;
  237. For reading a book or an e-book reader, you can also reverse its positioning &lt;b&gt;if you prefer (as I do) to hold the book higher than on your lap&lt;/b&gt;, and then flip the reflector down instead, so that the light angles up. &amp;nbsp;But if someone is sitting across from you, that may not be very comfortable for that person, as the Led lamps would be directed at their eyes too.&lt;br /&gt;
  238. &lt;br /&gt;
  239. &amp;nbsp;I do love that it&#39;s always available when I need extra light. &amp;nbsp;No, I&#39;m not associated with the company that makes them. &amp;nbsp;I was just tired of clipping on a light and adjusting it, as much as I love the ease of external lights like the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/mlight2&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Mighty Bright Xtraflex 2&lt;/a&gt; which has the little foam pad where the clip-on meets the top of the Kindle&#39;s bezel. &amp;nbsp;The Beam N Read is pretty good at keeping the light from reaching the other person for night reading in bed. &amp;nbsp;There are times that I would like a somewhat brighter light, and when I do (not when reading a Kindle), I&#39;ve used:&lt;br /&gt;
  240. &lt;br /&gt;
  241. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;The 6-LED version (Updated 4/17/17, evening, to link to newer version)&lt;/b&gt;&lt;!-- (not part of the holiday promo but I&#39;ll include the info for those curious about it)--&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  242. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/beam-n-read6r&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;img align=&quot;right&quot; src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/beam-n-read-6.jpg&quot; height=&quot;137&quot; hspace=&quot;10&quot; width=&quot;139&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &amp;nbsp; Their newest &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/beam-n-read6r&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;6-LED version&lt;/a&gt; is VERY bright and probably overkill for reading a Kindle 6&quot; reader, though I&#39;ve sometimes used it for situations where the light is just dim. &amp;nbsp;I tried one for other uses, and for my Kindle DX in Landscape mode. &amp;nbsp;The batteries for this last, they say, about 50 hours, vs the 100 to 120 hours of the 3-LED model.  &amp;nbsp;This 6-LED model never came with batteries included although it has a magnifier for short-session, detailed craft work. &amp;nbsp;I personally found the magnifer texture quite hard to see through and it&#39;s not a feature I&#39;d use.&lt;br /&gt;
  243. &lt;br /&gt;
  244. &amp;nbsp; I DO use both Beam N Read units for piano music though, depending on how well the room is lit.&lt;br /&gt;
  245. &lt;br /&gt;
  246. &amp;nbsp; I had bought a head lamp for a trip I took in October 2011, since we needed to go into some unlit places (Egyptian tombs!), but I don&#39;t at all like wearing something around my head just to read so I wondered if there was anything like this. &amp;nbsp;Amazon doesn&#39;t make this easy to find, but I&#39;ve found it extremely useful for any e-reader. And when out at night I&#39;m often asked what that is that I&#39;m wearing.  Having slipped in the rain recently on a rain-filled metal cover I stepped onto, I&#39;m even more apt to use this when I&#39;m out and the lighting is bad.&lt;br /&gt;
  247. &lt;br /&gt;
  248. Here are photos of the effect of two reading lights on my Kindles.&lt;br /&gt;
  249. &lt;br /&gt;
  250. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/k3built-in-lite&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;img align=&quot;left&quot; src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/mImg_1058s.jpg&quot; height=&quot;256&quot; hspace=&quot;10&quot; width=&quot;241&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt; Lit by the now-discontinued &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/k3cvr-light&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Amazon cover with built-in light&lt;/a&gt;, the upper right hand corner of my &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/k3-i&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Kindle 3&lt;/a&gt; &lt;span style=&quot;font-size: xx-small;&quot;&gt;(UK: &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/k3a-uk&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;K3&lt;/a&gt;)&lt;/span&gt; (&quot;Kindle Keyboard&quot;) is brighter than the lower-left area, of course, and the light isn&#39;t as bright as I like but it&#39;s useful if you&#39;re out and need a light for reading. &amp;nbsp;That special cover light needed no batteries, as it ran off the Kindle&#39;s own battery, and it did shut off automatically if the Kindle went into sleep mode after about 10 minutes.&lt;br /&gt;
  251. &lt;br /&gt;
  252. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/k3beamnread&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;img align=&quot;right&quot; src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/mImg_1070s.jpg&quot; height=&quot;256&quot; hspace=&quot;10&quot; width=&quot;212&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt; The second picture is of the same Kindle lit by the &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/beam-n-read3&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Beam N Read&lt;/a&gt; 3-LED light -- the lighting on my Kindle 3, in this case (no flash was used, as you can tell from a click of the image that leads to the EXIF camera data included with the larger image at PBase) is very even and brighter overall than from the one built into the Amazon cover, but one would seldom wear the Beam N Read when out, probably, though I&#39;ve definitely done it :-). &lt;br /&gt;
  253. &lt;br /&gt;
  254. Again, I hope this helps some who are looking for good lights to use with the Kindle.  &amp;nbsp;I did the various photos, as choice of a light has been one of the most asked questions on the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlecommunity&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Kindle forums&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  255. &lt;br /&gt;
  256. Here are &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/beam-n-read-comments&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;reviews and user feedback cited&lt;/a&gt; as well as a &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/beam-n-read-uses&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;page on &quot;Uses&quot;&lt;/a&gt; of this unique light, at the company&#39;s website, collected from several types of communities, including gadget and e-reader blog sites. &amp;nbsp;At the Amazon product page, the light, though not promoted by Amazon as a Kindle light, has customer reviews with a high average rating.&lt;br /&gt;
  257. &lt;br /&gt;
  258. I do use this light daily, as I don&#39;t have to worry anymore about which light fits which Kindle model and because I use it for other purposes as well, as mentioned. &lt;!-- Although I&#39;m not affiliated with the company that makes and distributes Beam N Read, my enthusiasm&#39;s been noted by ASF Lightware Solutions (website: www.readinglight.com ) and I&#39;m delighted they&#39;ve offered Kindleworld readers the special 1 week holiday pricing of $14.95 for the Dec. 26-Jan. 1 period, as they just released in mid December a new model with a more elastic neck strap that&#39;s easier to adjust and can be worn higher.--&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  259. &amp;nbsp; Remember that I like to reverse the way it&#39;s worn when I&#39;m reading in sitting position as I prefer to hold the Kindle higher than some do.&lt;br /&gt;
  260. &lt;a name=&quot;usbpower&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  261. &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;UPDATE&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; for new product offered by the company:&lt;br /&gt;
  262. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/bnr-usb-powerkit&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51fBIRxxTtL._AC_US400_FMwebp_QL65_.jpg&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;160&quot; height=&quot;160&quot; hspace=5&gt;&lt;b&gt;Beam N Read USB Power Kit&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  263.  This power kit allows plugging into USB for external power. &amp;nbsp;From the company: &quot;The kit includes a &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;6 foot&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/font&gt; Beam n Read-to-USB cable plus a &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;6 foot&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; USB Extension cable enabling one to plug in up to 12 feet away from the power source. &amp;nbsp;The cables can be plugged into the included USB/AC adapter or into a USB hub, USB car adapter, the USB port on a computer, the USB socket on your airline seat, and other devices&quot; - USB adapter/chargers, etc.  &lt;br /&gt;
  264. &lt;br /&gt;
  265. So, Beam n Read is a portable, personal light that delivers extra long battery runtime &lt;i&gt;and&lt;/i&gt;, now, the ability to use external power via USB. &amp;nbsp;As the company points out, most lights can’t plug in; some can be plugged in for recharging but have relatively short runtimes; a few can be plugged in for external power but those also have relatively short battery runtimes. &amp;nbsp;And while most older models of other brand lights can’t use USB, older model Beam n Read lights CAN use the USB Power Kit. &amp;nbsp;I&#39;m going to try one out. &lt;br /&gt;
  266. &lt;br /&gt;
  267. &amp;nbsp; &lt;!--Amazon customers can use the coupon code &quot;&lt;b&gt;KNDLWRLD&lt;/b&gt;&quot; when ordering the 3-LED light model during the next week to get the 25% discount off the MSRP of $19.95.   --&gt; While I receive many offers of products for review, I don&#39;t do actual reviews, writing only about products I&#39;ve bought and really enjoy. &amp;nbsp;In this case, I&#39;ve bought some for friends, and friends have bought them as well. &amp;nbsp;It&#39;s just an unusual, generally very-useful product.&lt;br /&gt;
  268. &lt;br /&gt;

  280. &lt;br /&gt;
  281. Just a quick flash since there is a one-day deal on some &#39;choice&#39; Kindle books that may be of more interest than the usual. &lt;br /&gt;
  282. &lt;br /&gt;
  283. I haven&#39;t been active on the blog, but when I saw this, I thought this was a good change from the usual.&lt;br /&gt;
  284. &lt;br /&gt;
  285. At the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/lastminutefolks&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;last-minute-deals page&lt;/a&gt; for &lt;b&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;today only&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;, December 27, 2016, Amazon is offering &lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;over 40 Goodreads Choice Award winners and finalists at up to 80% off&lt;/span&gt; on Kindle.&lt;br /&gt;
  286. &amp;nbsp; [URL corrected]&lt;br /&gt;
  287. When on that last-minute deals page, click on the image you see here (today only though), to browse what&#39;s available. &lt;br clear=&quot;all&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  288. &lt;br /&gt;
  289. I took the opportunity to get two books I wanted to read but not at normal pricing:&lt;br /&gt;
  290. &lt;br /&gt;

  301. I don&#39;t buy books as often as I used to, being so behind in reading, but this was definitely one of the better one-day Kindle deals.&lt;br /&gt;

UPDATES for Cyber Monday Week 11/28-29</title><description>&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fire-hd8&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;img align=&quot;left&quot; height=&quot;399&quot; hspace=&quot;14&quot; src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/firehd8a-399.jpg&quot; vspace=&quot;7&quot; width=&quot;399&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  314. &lt;b&gt;UPDATES:&lt;/b&gt;  I&#39;ve updated the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwpkindles&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;table of current Kindle device ID and links&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; for the U.S., UK., Canada and International offerings. (Nov 24, 2016).&lt;br /&gt;
  315. &lt;br /&gt;
  316. In September, Amazon released the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fire-hd8&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;newer 8&quot; Fire HD tablet&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  317. &amp;nbsp; Clicking on the image or the text link will get you the info on what this one does. &amp;nbsp;I haven&#39;t had a chance to look at forum responses to this model (I&#39;m still happy with my older 8.9&quot; HD year 2013 model), but the reviews rate this new HD 8&quot;device higher than I&#39;ve seen with previous tablets.&lt;br /&gt;
  318. &amp;nbsp; I&#39;ll be looking at this more closely later.&lt;br /&gt;
  319. &lt;br /&gt;
  320. This post was first published for Good Friday on Nov 24, 2016&lt;br /&gt;
  321. &lt;b&gt;UPDATES added here Nov 28-29 for Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/cybermondaywk&quot; target=_blank&gt;CyberMonday Week&lt;/a&gt; (General, rather than just devices).&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  322. &lt;br /&gt;
  323. They say a lot of things would go fast but to keep checking. &amp;nbsp;In the meantime, they also add this:&lt;br /&gt;
  324. &lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; Some Cyber Monday 2016 deals are in limited supply, and all will go quickly–but don&#39;t worry if you miss one, because we&#39;ll keep adding new ones as often as every five minutes throughout the day and &lt;b&gt;all week long&lt;/b&gt;.&#39;&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  325. So, these days, special sales holidays are week-long as they were last year (and probably the year before), but they have always run out of some items and their discount amounts may fluctuate.&lt;br /&gt;
  326. &lt;br /&gt;
  327. Amazon of course updated its &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazondevices&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon Devices page&lt;/a&gt; for Cyber Monday&#39;s pricing.&lt;br /&gt;
  328. Most of the &quot;Thanksgiving Holiday&quot; pricing remains since that was to be for a week anyway.&lt;br /&gt;
  329. &amp;nbsp; However, Amazon ended several device/tablet sales though they still have a couple of other ones.&lt;br /&gt;
  330. &lt;br /&gt;
  331. &lt;b&gt;UPDATED AGAIN&lt;/b&gt; Nov. 29 to confirm that the Fire HD specials on Monday were in effect through &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;CyberMonday &lt;i&gt;only&lt;/i&gt; and &lt;i&gt;NOT&lt;/i&gt; for the week&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;. &amp;nbsp;&lt;b&gt;What&#39;s described just below is NO LONGER ON SALE for the rest of CyberMonday Week&lt;/b&gt;, unfortunately.&lt;br /&gt;
  332. So, I&#39;m revising the wording for Tuesday morning.&lt;br /&gt;
  333. &lt;br /&gt;
  334. &amp;nbsp; On Thursday, I saw that the popular new &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fire-hd8&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire HD 8&quot; 2016 tablet&lt;/a&gt; was offered as part of the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/hd8-essentials&quot; target=_blank&gt;HD 8 Essentials Bundle&lt;/a&gt;. &amp;nbsp;This  bundled set was $78 with the custom cover and a screen protector. &lt;b&gt;[Regular pricing is back Tuesday Nov. 29. and the &quot;Essentials Bundle&quot; is no longer available.] &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  335. &lt;br /&gt;
  336. &amp;nbsp; The default HD8 model has 16GB of memory. &amp;nbsp;The tablet does come with a microSD slot for added storage, but I personally always feel more comfortable with the 32GB so I don&#39;t have to swap apps out or worry about how much music I can keep on the tablet or the number of movies downloaded. &amp;nbsp;The difference is about $30 between a 16GB model and a 32GB version.&lt;br /&gt;
  337. &lt;br /&gt;
  338. &amp;nbsp; With a fast processor and HD definition, it&#39;s a good deal, but more so when you have &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-us&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon Prime-US&lt;/a&gt; or &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon Prime-UK&lt;/a&gt; and its huge selection of free videos and free 2-day shipping among many other features -- and a 30-day free trial comes with the purchase, but after the 30-day period, Prime will cost about $8.25/mo on an annual basis, although &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-for-students&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime for STUDENTS - US&lt;/a&gt; or &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-for-students-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime for Students - UK&lt;/a&gt; is a much better deal.  &lt;!--Along with that Fire 8&quot; Tablet with Special Offers, 16 GB (regular price: $89.99), you&#39;d get the Amazon Cover (rp: $34.99), and Nupro Screen Protector (rp: $12.99) for $78 for all of it.--&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  339. [REMINDER: The sale on these &lt;b&gt;ended&lt;/b&gt; the end of Monday evening Nov. 28.]&lt;br /&gt;
  340. &lt;br /&gt;
  341. &amp;nbsp;The Essential bundle came (and will likely be offered again, later) with only the black cover, but when buying the Fire tablet separately, you&#39;re offered a choice of blue, magenta, or tangerine colored covers -- however, this color choice in covers would cost more when the cover is added separately.&lt;br /&gt;
  342. &lt;br /&gt;
  343. On the&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fire-hd8&quot; target=_blank&gt; HD 8 page&lt;/a&gt; (UK page &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fire-hd8-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;) for just the tablet, the colors represent the colors of a cover IF you choose to also get a cover.&lt;br /&gt;
  344. &lt;br /&gt;
  345. They had the bare bones Fire basic model for $33 Monday. &amp;nbsp;It has Only 8GB memory with probably 4GB+ used by the system files. &amp;nbsp;It does have a microSD slot -- but with only 8GB of internal memory, you&#39;d be switching out material quite a bit, back and forth.  &amp;nbsp;Good for very young kids, probably. &amp;nbsp;It&#39;s normally $50 and is back at that pricing Tuesday Nov. 29.&lt;br /&gt;
  346. &lt;br /&gt;
  347. &amp;nbsp; HOWEVER, remember that the 8&quot; HD model with better speed, display, and storage space is only $40 more.&lt;br /&gt;
  348. &lt;br /&gt;
  349. Also remember that Amazon is still adding sales items on the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazondevices&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon Devices CyberMonday&lt;/a&gt; page as well as the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/cybermondaywk&quot; target=_blank&gt;GENERAL CyberMonday Week&lt;/a&gt; page for other items. &lt;br /&gt;
  350. &lt;br /&gt;
  351. &lt;br /&gt;
  352. &lt;b&gt;EARLIER&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  353. &lt;b&gt;Amazon has very good $ale prices for this Thanksgiving holiday:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  354. &lt;b&gt;However&lt;/b&gt;, I get banners showing different sales pricing depending on the page I was on when I clicked to go to look at current Kindles.&lt;br /&gt;
  355. &lt;br /&gt;
  356. While going directly to the &quot;Buy a Kindle&quot; top menu page when I&#39;m at the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazondevices&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon Devices page&lt;/a&gt;, I get the following sales-banner-menu:&lt;br /&gt;
  357. &lt;br /&gt;
  358. &lt;b&gt;Current e-Reader banner info&lt;/b&gt;: &lt;br /&gt;

  360. &lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  361. &lt;/span&gt; When going from other pages to a Kindle page with a Kindle banner at the top, I get the below instead:&lt;br /&gt;
  362. &lt;span style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; font-weight: 700; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;Limited-time offers&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;: Kindle&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;strike style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;$99.99&lt;/strike&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; font-weight: 700; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;$69.99&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;, Kindle Paperwhite,&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;strike style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;$139.99&lt;/strike&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; font-weight: 700; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;$119.99&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;and Kindle Voyage&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;strike style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;$219.99&lt;/strike&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; font-weight: 700; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;$189.99&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  363. &lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  364. &lt;/span&gt;  That&#39;s probably because Amazon is changing its landing pages and hasn&#39;t yet caught all of the Black Friday changes, which would officially begin tomorrow but they usually start them earlier. &amp;nbsp;So, this is a heads-up that for the Black Friday Deals week, look for the first banner above, for eReaders.&lt;br /&gt;
  365. &lt;br /&gt;
  366. &lt;b&gt;Current Fire tablets banner info&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  367. &lt;span style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; font-weight: 700; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://www.amazon.com/b/ref=ods_DP_Eink_BFCM_DEALS?tag=kwab-20&amp;node=11851273011&quot; style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; color: #0066c0; text-decoration: none;&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Black Friday Deals Week&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;: Save $30 on All-New Fire HD 8 Tablets&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; font-weight: 700; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;strike style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box;&quot;&gt;$89.99&lt;/strike&gt;&amp;nbsp;$59.99&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;background-color: #ff9900; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01BRWH8G8/?tag=kwab-20&amp;ref=ods_dp_tab_gizabfprmo_pgstripe&quot; style=&quot;box-sizing: border-box; color: #c45500; cursor: pointer; font-family: Arial; font-size: 14px; outline: 0px; text-align: center;&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Learn more&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  368. &lt;br /&gt;
  369. The &quot;Learn more&quot; leads to the Fire HD 8 page that has a banner that links you to the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/hd8-essentials&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;HD 8 Essentials Bundle&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; at a very good discount for now.&lt;br /&gt;

  385. &lt;b&gt;Catching up after time away&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  386. First, as most will already know, Amazon released, in Late June, &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlenew2016&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;the new basic Kindle&lt;/a&gt; e-Reader that&#39;s even thinner and lighter&lt;br /&gt;
  387. &lt;br /&gt;
  388. &amp;nbsp; Wanted to explore some new features and updates but have to leave again and can&#39;t start that until tomorrow. &lt;br /&gt;
  389. &lt;br /&gt;
  390. &amp;nbsp; I&#39;ve finally updated the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwpkindles&quot; target=_blank&gt;Kindle chart listing&lt;/a&gt; of what&#39;s available globally, with links to specific current models. &lt;br /&gt;
  391. &lt;br /&gt;
  392. &amp;nbsp;In the meantime, here&#39;s an amazing resource today for those of us stymied by what has happened in the middle east and the ramifications globally -- a significant free offering by the New York Times today.&lt;br /&gt;
  393. &lt;br /&gt;
  394. &amp;nbsp; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fracturedlands-nytm&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-YJGPptTG-1M/V7EHMZN0TTI/AAAAAAAAijU/a5jjtavmM_8jcFnkbZ29Y48WM0m67n9NwCLcB/s1600/fractured-lands.jpg&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;FRACTURED LANDS: HOW THE ARAB WORLD CAME APART&lt;/a&gt; - an Interactive, online &quot;book&quot; in essence, which you can access and resume when you have time and interest.&lt;br /&gt;
  395. &lt;br /&gt;
  396. &amp;nbsp; The NY Times is providing FREE, for all readers, even non-subscribers, &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fracturedlands-nytm&quot; target=_blank&gt;today&#39;s ENTIRE issue&lt;/a&gt; of its interactive edition of its Sunday NY Times Magazine: &quot;FRACTURED LANDS: HOW THE ARAB WORLD CAME APART.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  397. &lt;br /&gt;
  398. &amp;nbsp; From the opening:&lt;br clear=&quot;left&quot;&gt; &lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; ... In print, it occupies an entire issue. The product of some 18 months of reporting, it tells the story of the catastrophe that has fractured the Arab world since the invasion of Iraq 13 years ago, leading to the rise of ISIS and the global refugee crisis. &lt;br /&gt;
  399. &lt;br /&gt;
  400. &amp;nbsp; The geography of this catastrophe is broad and its causes are many, but its consequences — war and uncertainty throughout the world — are familiar to us all. &amp;nbsp;Scott Anderson’s story gives the reader a visceral sense of how it all unfolded, through the eyes of six characters in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan.&lt;br /&gt;
  401. &lt;br /&gt;
  402. &amp;nbsp; Accompanying Anderson’s text are 10 portfolios by the photographer Paolo Pellegrin, drawn from his extensive travels across the region over the last 14 years, as well as a landmark virtual-reality experience that embeds the viewer with the Iraqi fighting forces during the battle to retake Falluja. &quot; &lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  403. &lt;br /&gt;

  413. &lt;center&gt;&lt;h1&gt;&lt;b&gt;So, the new Kindle Oasis is almost here.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/h1&gt;&lt;table border=1 cellpadding=7 cellspacing=0 style=&quot;width: 100%px;&quot;&gt;&lt;tbody&gt;

  416. &lt;/tbody&gt;&lt;/table&gt;&lt;/center&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  417. &lt;br /&gt;
  418. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle_oasis&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;img align=&quot;left&quot; src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/kindle_oasis.jpg&quot; height=&quot;339&quot; hspace=&quot;14&quot; vspace=&quot;7&quot; width=&quot;399&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &lt;br /&gt;

  420. will be &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle_oasis&quot; target=_blank&gt;released on April 27, 2016&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/span&gt; (&lt;b&gt;UK:&lt;/b&gt; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-oasis-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;, &amp;nbsp;&lt;b&gt;Canada:&lt;/b&gt; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-oasis-ca&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;b&gt;Int&#39;l:&lt;/b&gt; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-oasis-intl&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;)&lt;br /&gt;
  421. &lt;br /&gt;
  422. &lt;b&gt;What&#39;s new?&lt;/b&gt; (Also see &lt;a href=&quot;#upd&quot;&gt;Updated info&lt;/a&gt;.)&lt;br /&gt;
  423. For one thing, &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;physical, dedicated page turn buttons&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; are back !&lt;br /&gt;
  424. &lt;br /&gt;
  425. The nicely-sized &#39;handgrip&#39; side  is wider and thicker, while the other side of the &lt;i&gt;Oasis&lt;/i&gt; is slimmer.&lt;br /&gt;
  426. &lt;br /&gt;
  427. &amp;nbsp; HOWEVER, when you want to hold it with the other hand, you can just turn it around and the Oasis will &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#ccc0000&quot;&gt;auto-rotate&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; the page orientation to match. &lt;br /&gt;
  428. &lt;br /&gt;
  429. Amazon claims that &quot;&lt;i&gt;the tapered, ergonomic handgrip shifts the center of gravity to your palm, to rest in your hand like the spine of a book. Perfectly balanced for one-handed reading,&lt;/i&gt;&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  430. &lt;br /&gt;
  431. It&#39;s now, overall, both thinner and lighter than previous Kindles.  &lt;br /&gt;
  432. &lt;br /&gt;
  433. Almost an inch shorter, it&#39;s a bit wider to get a more secure handgrip, and when you measure the thinness against earlier models, the NON-page-turn buttons side is at least twice as thin, which is hard to believe.&lt;br /&gt;
  434. &lt;br /&gt;
  435. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle_oasis&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;Oasis&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; (UK: &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-oasis-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;, Canada: &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-oasis-ca&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;, Int&#39;l: &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-oasis-intl&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;) comes with a removable leather charging cover included, which &quot;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;boosts battery to last months&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;.&quot;  &amp;nbsp;Color options are black, merlot, or walnut. &amp;nbsp;I&#39;ve read that without the battery cover, the battery life is shorter than on the earlier, larger Kindle e-Ink readers, but most use their Kindles with a protective cover and this will give &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;battery life lasting &quot;months&quot;&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; instead of &quot;weeks&quot; as with the earlier Kindles.&lt;br /&gt;
  436. &lt;br /&gt;
  437. The product page explains that you can &quot;charge the Oasis and cover simultaneously while snapped together and plugged in. &amp;nbsp;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;When on the go, the cover will automatically recharge the device&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; ...Plus, a &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;new hibernation mode&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; minimizes power consumption when your Kindle is inactive, extending battery life to its fullest capacity.&lt;br /&gt;
  438. &lt;br /&gt;
  439. &amp;nbsp;I haven&#39;t seen an Amazon-product option that isn&#39;t in leather (some don&#39;t want to buy animal skin) but I imagine 3rd party covers will be available, although I haven&#39;t seen if they&#39;ll be able to use Amazon&#39;s battery-charging technology. &lt;br /&gt;
  440. &lt;br /&gt;
  441. &amp;nbsp;Amazon describes the cover as one that &quot;fits closely around the bezel, waking Kindle Oasis when opened and putting it to sleep when closed. &amp;nbsp;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Twelve magnets&lt;/font&gt; form a secure attachment between device and cover, while still easy to detach when the lightest possible weight is desired.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  442. &lt;br /&gt;
  443. Without the cover, the Oasis weighs 4.6 oz. vs 6.3 oz. for &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlevoyage&quot; target=_blank&gt;Voyage&lt;/a&gt; and 7.2 oz. for the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/paperwhite3&quot; target=_blank&gt;Paperwhite 3&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  444. Display resolution is the same for all three of these, at 300 dpi.&lt;br /&gt;
  445. &lt;br /&gt;
  446. The new Kindle doesn&#39;t have automatic light adjustments but it does have &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;10 LEDS&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; vs 6 in the Voyage and 4 in the Paperwhite 3. &amp;nbsp;Amazon explains that the 60% increase in lighting brings &quot;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt; enhanced page consistency&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&quot; -- a feature that some Kindle users will appreciate when even the slightest variance has bothered some in earlier versions.&lt;br /&gt;
  447. &lt;br /&gt;
  448. Storage capacity is the same at 4 GB.&lt;br /&gt;
  449. &lt;br /&gt;
  450. They promise &quot;Sharp, dark text&quot; (which I hope they apply to the HOME page as well, since their latest update to the older Kindles lightened the font colors for the Home page and therefore reduced the contrast -- I&#39;m still hoping they&#39;ll fix that). &amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;
  451. &quot;All fonts have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  452. &lt;br /&gt;
  453. The CURRENT price showing as of today (prices can change from time to time) is $289.99, and if you want &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;3G&lt;/font&gt; cellular network capability in addition to the default WiFi, that&#39;s an additional $70 (or $359.00).&lt;br /&gt;
  454. &lt;br /&gt;
  455. As with all the other Kindles, the default configuration includes &quot;Special Offers,&quot; which can be good offers or sometimes just ads on the lock screen. &amp;nbsp;To get the Oasis or any Kindle with NO Special Offers on the lock screen, it&#39;s an additional $20.&lt;br /&gt;
  456. &lt;br /&gt;
  457. &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Comparison&lt;/font&gt; of Kindle E-Readers&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  458. Here&#39;s a link to Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/compare-kindle-ereaders-2016&quot; target=_blank&gt;COMPARISON CHART of Kindle e-Readers&lt;/a&gt; (UK: &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/compare-kreaders-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;, Canada: &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/compare-kreaders-ca&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;, Int&#39;l: &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-oasis-intl&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;) as of April 14, 2016.&lt;br /&gt;
  459. &lt;br /&gt;
  460. &lt;b&gt;Who might find this premium model worth a look?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  461. While responding to a comment just now, it occurred to me that commuters who need to stand and hang onto a strap for long rides might find it easier to hold onto this Kindle with only one hand (no stretching the hand for screen taps to turn pages). It&#39;d be less likely to cramp the hand. &lt;br /&gt;
  462. &lt;br /&gt;
  463. And Tom Semple mentioned earlier that people going away (camping etc) to places with no electricity will find it useful. Then there are the few who see uneven lighting even on the Voyage and post that they&#39;re very bothered by it (while others don&#39;t notice, so it&#39;s a matter of how your eyes see).&lt;br /&gt;
  464. &lt;br /&gt;
  465. That&#39;s it for now. &amp;nbsp;Are the premium features attractive to you? &amp;nbsp;I&#39;ll be back to update this as I find out more. &lt;a name=&quot;upd&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  466. &lt;br /&gt;
  467. &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;UPDATES&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; - 4/16 and 4/17, 2016&lt;br /&gt;
  468. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/oasis-mashable&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/kindle-oasis-mashable.jpg&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;300&quot; height=&quot;200&quot; hspace=14 vspace=7&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  469. Mashable&#39;s Lance Ulanoff&lt;/a&gt; offers interesting points, not mentioned on the product page, from his conversations with Amazon.&lt;br /&gt;
  470. &lt;br /&gt;
  471. &amp;#8226; While the screen is only 3.4mm thick, the &lt;b&gt;grip side&lt;/b&gt; with page-turn buttons &lt;b&gt;houses&lt;/b&gt; &lt;i&gt;the e-reader’s CPU, storage and battery&lt;/i&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  472. &lt;br /&gt;
  473. &amp;#8226; The body is made of an &lt;i&gt;electroplated polymer&lt;/i&gt; for &lt;i&gt;added strength&lt;/i&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  474. &lt;br /&gt;
  475. &amp;#8226; The Oasis appears sharper and brighter due, Amazon explained, to a &lt;b&gt;wider white gamut&lt;/b&gt; and with &lt;b&gt;&quot;brand new&quot; lighting and screen refraction&lt;/b&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  476. &lt;br /&gt;
  477. &amp;#8226; &quot;The &lt;b&gt;lighting&lt;/b&gt; now flows in &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;through the side&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; and is &lt;b&gt;spread evenly&lt;/b&gt; over the screen by something Amazon called a &#39;&lt;i&gt;cylindrical refractive pattern&lt;/i&gt;.&#39; &amp;nbsp;What I noticed is that, even at its brightest, I &lt;b&gt;could not see the actual LEDs&lt;/b&gt;. &lt;br /&gt;
  478. &lt;br /&gt;
  479. &amp;#8226; There&#39;s very little distance between the screen and the glass surface and you can feel as if you&#39;re touching the &#39;print.&#39;&lt;br /&gt;
  480. &lt;br /&gt;
  481. &amp;#8226; Amazon explained that they chemically strengthened the glass &lt;i&gt;after&lt;/i&gt; cutting it down to size rather than before. &amp;nbsp;This helps prevent weak spots.&lt;br /&gt;
  482. &lt;br /&gt;

While getting back to the blog to update it with recent news (the new Kindle coming any day will be addressed in the next blog article), I was trying to find a couple of Amazon management pages  for my various settings, but it took forever to find some of them, so I decided to make up a table of them to make it easier for me and for some of you (see chart at left or at the top of the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindleworldextras&quot; target=_blank&gt;Kindle Edition of this blog for Kindle eReaders&lt;/a&gt;) and will add more links later on.  &lt;br /&gt;
  506. &lt;br /&gt;
  507. &lt;b&gt;E-Ink Kindle Reader 5.6.1.1 &#39;Reading Progress&#39; - where is it?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  508. This was one of the more common questions asked after the big required update on older Kindle e-Ink eReaders, including the Paperwhite 1.  &lt;br /&gt;
  509. &amp;nbsp; It turns out that this is now located under the &lt;i&gt;Aa&lt;/i&gt; fonts and screen-display icon.&lt;br /&gt;
  510. &amp;nbsp; But you can directly access it within a Kindle book by just tapping the bottom left of the page to activate it&lt;br /&gt;
  511. &lt;br /&gt;
  512. &amp;nbsp: &lt;b&gt;Aa icon features screen sometimes freezes on some devices&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  513. &amp;nbsp; Some have gotten past this by Resetting the device (which includes a normal re-start or a memory-clearing 20-second hold of the power button to reset it). The &#39;Reset Device&#39; showing on the Home/ Settings/Device Options/Menu screen used to say &#39;Reset to Factory Default,&#39; which can remove your non-Kindle books and documents, so that should be used only as a last resort.&lt;br /&gt;
  514. &lt;br /&gt;
  515. &amp;nbsp; But some have been able to get the &lt;i&gt;Aa&lt;/i&gt; features screen to stop freezing tendencies after merely tapping &lt;i&gt;Home&lt;/i&gt; and then &lt;i&gt;Sync and Check for Items&lt;/i&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  516. &lt;br /&gt;
  517. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;The general features of older e-Ink v5.6.1.1. software update&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  518. &amp;nbsp; This particular software update version is for Paperwhite 1 and older Kindles. &amp;nbsp;The newer Paperwhites and Voyage have v5.7.x.x. software with slightly different features.&lt;br /&gt;
  519. &lt;br /&gt;
  520. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; In June 2015, I made a &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwt0630&quot; target=_blank&gt;blog article that described v5.6.1.1&lt;/a&gt; update&#39;s general features newly available at that time, and users of Paperwhite 1 or older Kindle e-Ink eReaders may want to take a look at those since not much was said about those general features during the recent required update for those of us who had not installed the update when it came out in 2015.   &amp;nbsp;Amazon then delivered this update to these older non-updated Kindle.&lt;br /&gt;
  521. &lt;br /&gt;
  522.  &amp;nbsp;Those who did not, for some reason, get this update over the air should see the recent &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwt0317&quot; target=_blank&gt;blog article with info on how to manually install it&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  523. &lt;/td&gt;&lt;/tr&gt;&lt;/table&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  524. &amp;nbsp; I&#39;m adding, below, an earlier article I posted about a little-known, hugely helpful feature, written YEARS ago but still germane. &lt;br /&gt;
  525. &lt;br /&gt;
  526. This is info I thought would be useful for new Kindle owners, but I&#39;ve found that oldtime Kindle users don&#39;t tend to know it exists, and definitely students involved in the pilot programs at universities don&#39;t seem to know either, judging from some reports.&lt;br /&gt;
  527. &lt;br /&gt;
  528. &lt;img src=&quot;http://andrys.com/highlights-example.gif&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;275&quot; height=&quot;400&quot; hspace=21&gt; If you check your Menu button/Settings/Menu button (again) options, you&#39;ll see one for &quot;Enabling&quot; or &quot;Disabling Annotations Backup.&quot; &amp;nbsp;These are for the personal highlighting and notes that you can make on any regular books purchased from Amazon which are then, if you authorize it, BACKED UP to your own private, password-protected webpage at Amazon. &amp;nbsp;(PDFs on the Kindle have no annotation features.*)&lt;br /&gt;
  529. &lt;br /&gt;
  530. The &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kusrguides&quot; target=_blank&gt;Kindle User&#39;s Guide&lt;/a&gt; is the first book placed on your Kindle (by Amazon) and is also readable on the Net and  downloadable to your computer in PDF format for reading on your pc or Mac).&lt;br /&gt;
  531. &amp;nbsp; Be sure to check the parts on how to highlight and make notes (as well as everything else it can do).&lt;br /&gt;
  532. &lt;br /&gt;
  533. &amp;nbsp; But highlighting is as simple as going to the start of the highlighting and clicking on the 5-way button and using that 5-way to go to the right or down (or across a page turn) until you see where you want to end the highlight.&lt;br /&gt;
  534. &amp;nbsp; Then you press the 5-way button again.  That&#39;s it. &lt;br /&gt;
  535. &lt;br /&gt;
  536. &amp;nbsp; There can be confusion at times with the cursor as to whether you want to start a search or just see a dictionary summary definition for a word or start an annotation -- but if the highlighting doesn&#39;t work, press &quot;Back&quot; button (my favorite or most-used button) to get &lt;b&gt;back&lt;/b&gt; to where you were and start again.&lt;br /&gt;
  537. &lt;br /&gt;
  538. &lt;b&gt;SIDE-NOTE on the much-appreciated &lt;i&gt;BACK&lt;/i&gt; button&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  539. The &quot;Back&quot; button is &lt;b&gt;also&lt;/b&gt; used when you jump to another Location in the book or to a search result for the book or when you decide you want to look up a detailed definition of a word your cursor is on. &lt;br /&gt;
  540. &lt;br /&gt;
  541. &amp;nbsp; The key word is &quot;jump.&quot;  &amp;nbsp;When I Search a word or phrase in a book, to see where it occurs elsewhere in that book, the Kindle gives me 6 search results (depending on the size of the chosen font) on the first page of results and I can choose to click on any or all of them -- BUT to get BACK to where I was in the book, I then press the &quot;BACK&quot; button and I&#39;m back where I was before the Search and &#39;jump&#39; to the results page.&lt;br /&gt;
  542. &amp;nbsp; It&#39;s the same when you click on a link to another part of the book; you press &#39;BACK&#39; to return to where you were before the &#39;jump.&#39;&lt;br /&gt;
  543. &lt;br /&gt;
  544. &amp;nbsp; I read a lot of non-fiction, so I do use this feature a lot. &amp;nbsp;A big help for any Kindle user is the ability to check your previous annotations for a book, on the Kindle, where they are shown to you via the &quot;My Notes &amp; Marks&quot; option when you click the &quot;MENU&quot; button at bottom right of teh kindle.&lt;br /&gt;
  545. &lt;br /&gt;
  546. &amp;nbsp; The highlighting and notes feature is especially useful for those in &lt;i&gt;book clubs&lt;/i&gt; or for those who are taking a class that uses the book.&lt;br /&gt;
  547. &lt;br /&gt;
  548. &amp;nbsp; But what&#39;s the easiest way to print them out for use elsewhere, if you don&#39;t just bring your Kindle and go through it that way?&lt;br /&gt;
  549. &lt;br /&gt;
  550. &lt;b&gt;PRIVATE WEB KINDLE-ANNOTATIONS PAGE FOR OUR BOOKS&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  551. &amp;nbsp; Your private books-annotation webpage at Amazon. &amp;nbsp;Again, it&#39;s password-protected so only you should have access to it. &amp;nbsp;I think that&#39;s part of the agreement with Amazon too. &amp;nbsp;Each of us can get to that page by typing &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/webknotes&quot; target=_blank&gt;http://kindle.amazon.com&lt;/a&gt; or you can just bookmark it when you get there. &amp;nbsp;Be sure to click on &quot;Your_Highlights&quot; when you land on the main page.&lt;br /&gt;
  552. &lt;br /&gt;
  553. &amp;nbsp;When you put in your password, you&#39;ll be brought to your list of purchased or free books from Amazon and you can sort them by title or author. &amp;nbsp;Click on a link for one of your books, and you&#39;ll see a group of about 5 highlighting entries  and notes you made for the book (if you did). &amp;nbsp; If you made more annotations than are seen on that page, you&#39;ll see, at the top, a list of pages numbered for more of your notes, which you can click on to see the rest of your notes.&lt;br /&gt;
  554. &lt;br /&gt;
  555. &amp;nbsp; BUT an additional great feature is that you can click near the bottom left of that group of annotation results, on the link to &quot;&lt;i&gt;See all your highlights and notes on one page&lt;/i&gt;.&quot; &amp;nbsp;And that&#39;s the way I look at them.&lt;br /&gt;
  556. &lt;br /&gt;
  557. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwebnotesample&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://andrys.com/kindle_webnotes_sample-s.gif&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;224&quot; height=&quot;138&quot; hspace=10&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  558. Here&#39;s a link to an &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwebnotesample&quot; target=_blank&gt;actual web page&lt;/a&gt; showing some highlighting entries for &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwebnotesamp&quot; target=_blank&gt;a specific book&lt;/a&gt; I bought (and haven&#39;t finished yet). &amp;nbsp;The book is a fascinating take on what it&#39;s like to actually win an election and enter the White House and all that comes with that. &lt;br clear=&quot;left&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  559. &lt;hr width=80% size=1&gt;&lt;font size=1&gt;* PDF books: you can ask Amazon to convert a copy of any of these by emailing it to [you]@free.kindle.com with the word &quot;Convert&quot; in the Subject field, and they&#39;ll send for free a converted copy back to your email. &amp;nbsp;From there you can move it to your Kindle with the USB cable, putting it into the &#39;documents&#39; folder of the Kindle.&lt;br /&gt;
  560. &lt;br /&gt;
  561. The larger text, reflowed to fit into a 6&quot; screen will be easier to read, but the original layout tends to be lost when the PDF is complex. &amp;nbsp;For single column documents it&#39;s usually fine though -- plus your inline dictionary will work for these (not for actual PDFs), as will book-searches with multiple-results Kindle style, text-to-speech, and highlighting and notes. &amp;nbsp;Annotations for books purchased from non-Amazon sources are not backed up to the Amazon server nor are the annotations for those though. &lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  562. &lt;br /&gt;
  563. &lt;br /&gt;

  566. &lt;b&gt;Older e-Ink software update - Links involved, if your update hasn&#39;t been completed&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  567. &lt;br /&gt;
  568. 1. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-reader-critical-update&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;Critical Software Update&lt;/b&gt; for Kindle E-Readers&lt;/a&gt; - Amazon Help page&lt;br /&gt;
  569. 2. &lt;b&gt;Amazon Devices - Identifying yours:&lt;/b&gt; &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/ksoftwarepage&quot; target=_blank&gt;U.S.&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/ksoftware-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;UK&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  570. &lt;br /&gt;
  571. &lt;b&gt;UPDATED&lt;/b&gt; 3/19/16 to add &lt;a href=&quot;#ast&quot;&gt;footnotes for asterisks&lt;/a&gt; used in the affected-devices table.&lt;br /&gt;
  572. &lt;b&gt;UPDATED&lt;/b&gt; 3/26/16 to add &lt;a href=&quot;#devices&quot;&gt;device-photo-page links&lt;/a&gt; just above the table of affected devices.&lt;br /&gt;
  573. &lt;br /&gt;
  574. Amazon has sent personal e-mail alerts to all owners of  older Kindle e-Ink E-Readers needing a &quot;critical&quot; software update that would be automatically delivered to that older device &quot;over the air&quot; via either 3G Cellular network (for the oldest Kindles) or via WiFi.  &lt;br /&gt;
  575. &lt;br /&gt;
  576. &amp;nbsp; While they identify the e-Readers needing the updates, it may not be clear to us which device is named in the e-mail, since they mention the &quot;generation&quot; of Kindle and most of us don&#39;t tend to identify our devices that way.  &lt;br /&gt;
  577. &lt;br /&gt;
  578. &amp;nbsp; We don&#39;t always see our Amazon emails when they&#39;re mixed in with daily discount alerts or order confirmations received, among all our other email, so this article is to make sure owners are aware of the needed update.&lt;br /&gt;
  579. &lt;br /&gt;
  580. &amp;nbsp; The email I received listed the specific older devices I own: &lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; The following Kindle e-readers registered to your account require an important software update:&lt;br /&gt;
  581. &amp;nbsp; [&lt;font size=1&gt;The affected-device list is placed here -- my Kindle e-Reader 1 (2007)&#39;s odd mercury-column&lt;br /&gt;
  582. &amp;nbsp;  &amp;nbsp; selection cursor still works 9 years later (!) and is very readable.&lt;/font&gt;]&lt;br /&gt;
  583. &lt;br /&gt;
  584. &amp;nbsp; Update the e-readers listed ... to continue downloading e-books and using Kindle services. &amp;nbsp;To receive the update, follow these steps:&lt;br /&gt;
  585. &lt;br /&gt;
  586. - Plug your Kindle in to charge during the update.&lt;br /&gt;
  587. - Turn on wireless.&lt;br /&gt;
  588. - Leave your Kindle plugged in and connected to the wireless network overnight, or until the update is complete. &lt;br /&gt;
  589. &lt;br /&gt;
  590. The software update will download and install automatically, even if your device is asleep. &lt;b&gt;Your device may restart multiple times&lt;/b&gt; during the update process. &amp;nbsp;You will get a final confirmation letter on your device when the update is complete, which can be found in your Kindle Library.&lt;br /&gt;
  591. &lt;br /&gt;
  592. &amp;nbsp;If you do not update the devices&#39; software &lt;b&gt;by March 22, 2016&lt;/b&gt;, you will no longer be able to access Kindle services or get the update via connecting to a wireless network.&lt;br /&gt;
  593. &amp;nbsp; To resume access, you will need to &lt;i&gt;manually&lt;/i&gt; update the software on each of your Kindle devices. Please visit our Help page for more details on how to update manually: &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-reader-critical-update&quot; target=_blank&gt;www.amazon.com/ku2016&lt;/a&gt;. &lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  594. I did receive my updates over the air a couple of weeks after I got the notices, and it was pretty seamless if you were expecting it.  &lt;br /&gt;
  595. &lt;br /&gt;
  596. &amp;nbsp; The &quot;critical&quot; update that allows you to continue downloading your e-books and use Kindle services will not show any differences (that I could see). &amp;nbsp;But, as mentioned, you&#39;re told it&#39;s completed and, in my case, I also received a &#39;letter&#39; document letting me know it was done. &amp;nbsp;Again, if you haven&#39;t received it, you should plug in your Kindle overnight to receive it, &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;before March 22&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  597. &lt;br /&gt;
  598. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;AFTER March 22&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;, you can do this ONLY if you get the software update file and load it onto the Kindle yourself. &amp;nbsp;For ANY of this, if you have any trouble understanding what to do, &lt;br /&gt;
  599. &amp;nbsp; call Kindle Support: &lt;nobr&gt;US - 866-321-8851 &amp;nbsp;or &amp;nbsp;UK only - 0800 496 1081&lt;/nobr&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  600. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;OR&lt;/b&gt; use the &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/kcallme&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;i&gt;Contact Kindle support page&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  601. &lt;br /&gt;
  602. &lt;b&gt;For convenience, here is info for affected (and UNaffected) devices from PART of the critical-software-update page.&lt;/b&gt; &lt;a name=&quot;devices&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  603. &lt;br /&gt;
  604. &lt;p&gt;The following devices require the latest software version&lt;br /&gt;
  605. &amp;nbsp; (&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;photos of each with links to how to manually update them after March 22&lt;/font&gt; &lt;/b&gt;are at the &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/ksoftwarepage&quot; target=_blank&gt;U.S.&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/ksoftware-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;UK&lt;/a&gt; device-identifying pages:&lt;br /&gt;

  625. &lt;br /&gt;
  626. &lt;b&gt;**&lt;/b&gt; For these devices, even if your device has built-in 3G, you will need to connect to Wi-Fi to receive the latest software update.&lt;br /&gt;
  627. &lt;br /&gt;
  628. &lt;br /&gt;
  629. FAR more detail if you need it is at the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-reader-critical-update&quot; target=_blank&gt;softwareupdate help page&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  630. &amp;nbsp; Again, here&#39;s the page that helps identify your device(s): &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/ksoftwarepage&quot; target=_blank&gt;U.S.&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/ksoftware-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;UK&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  631. &lt;br /&gt;
  632. &lt;br /&gt;
  633. &lt;b&gt;Then there is a &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;SECOND update&lt;/font&gt; for many with older (but more recent) Kindle e-Readers.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  634. This second update is to get the interface to match what they&#39;ve done for the newer e-Ink e-Readers.&lt;br /&gt;
  635. &lt;br /&gt;
  636. My Paperwhite 1 stayed at software version 5.6.1.1 so far and the interface is the same. &amp;nbsp;My Paperwhite 3 got the new interface (v5.7.x.x), called the &lt;b&gt;HOME VIEW&lt;/b&gt; vs the old &#39;cover&#39; or &quot;list&quot; page styles.  &lt;br /&gt;
  637. &lt;br /&gt;
  638. &amp;nbsp; The change I liked was that instead of &quot;Cloud&quot; and &quot;Device&quot; they now use the terms &quot;All&quot; and &quot;Downloaded&quot; --and these are clearer in that the Cloud holds ALL that you own while &quot;Downloaded&quot; refers to the  copies you&#39;ve put on your device to read.&lt;br /&gt;
  639. &lt;br /&gt;
  640. &lt;b&gt;SOME are not enthralled with the new interface because it includes Recommended books&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  641. Some of us have always turned off the option to see Amazon recommendations, as we just want to see the books we bought  and prefer to go to the Amazon pages if we want recommendations.&lt;br /&gt;
  642. &amp;nbsp;Others LIKE having recommendations based on their reading habits and keep the Home View.&lt;br /&gt;
  643. &lt;br /&gt;
  644. &amp;nbsp; If you DON&#39;T want the book recommendations and some other features of &lt;i&gt;Home View&lt;/i&gt;, you can turn them off. &amp;nbsp;Here are &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindle-update-user-discussion-feb2016&quot; target=_blank&gt;tips from the Kindle forum&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  645. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Voyage/Paperwhite - new interface tips&lt;/b&gt; &lt;blockquote&gt;&amp;nbsp; The following settings tip ALSO turns off the &quot;&lt;i&gt;Recommend Content&lt;/i&gt;&quot; feature and you&#39;ll be able to get the old home page &lt;i&gt;List View&lt;/i&gt; instead.&lt;br /&gt;
  646. &lt;br /&gt;
  647. &amp;nbsp; The new, somewhat paler or lighter-contrast screen and smaller fonts will still be in effect.&lt;br /&gt;
  648. &lt;br /&gt;
  649. On the 3-dot menu icon at the top-right:&lt;br /&gt;
  650. &amp;nbsp; Go to: Settings / Device Options / Personalize Your Kindle / Advanced Options / &lt;b&gt;Home Screen View&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  651. &amp;nbsp; and Set that to Off when you&#39;d rather not use the new view.&lt;br /&gt;
  652. &lt;br /&gt;
  653. Others say to just pull down the top menu down (in some models, the 2nd one from the right) and choose &quot;List&quot; &lt;br /&gt;
  654. Some tap &quot;All Items&quot; at the top and then &quot;List View.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  655. &lt;br /&gt;
  656. Another finds that &quot;Anything new that I&#39;ve downloaded never shows up. I can find them if I do a search or if I switch to the grid.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  657. &amp;nbsp; For the grid: &lt;br /&gt;
  658. &amp;nbsp; &quot;Tap &quot;All Items&quot; and then Grid View to get -that- view.&#39;&lt;br /&gt;
  659. &lt;br /&gt;
  660. &amp;nbsp; The font sizes on collections and book lists are smaller and some have requested larger fonts.&lt;br /&gt;
  661. &amp;nbsp; Others have found the new, smaller fonts clearer though. &lt;br /&gt;
  662. &amp;nbsp; NOTE: In a thread at &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kfont-rollback&quot; target=_blank&gt;Teleread&lt;/a&gt;, I saw the following: &lt;blockquote&gt;&quot;The difference you noticed with the weight of the Helvetica font is an issue that we are aware of,” Stephany Rochon in Amazon PR e-mailed me earlier this week, “and we are correcting it before the update is rolled out broadly to customers. &quot; &lt;/blockquote&gt;Changing Portrait to Landscape is done in a different place now.&lt;br /&gt;
  663. Tap the &quot;Aa&quot; option at the top, then &quot;page&quot; and then &quot;orientation.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  664. &lt;br /&gt;
  665. When tapping on &quot;Downloaded&quot; rather than &quot;All&quot; -- you&#39;ll tend to get only titles you&#39;ve not read or samples, of course.&lt;br /&gt;
  666. If there&#39;s a book or sample that you don&#39;t want, &lt;br /&gt;
  667. &amp;nbsp; you can tap the 3-dot menu next to a book title and see &lt;br /&gt;
  668. &amp;nbsp; an option to &quot;&lt;i&gt;remove from device&lt;/i&gt;&quot; -- some have wondered how to do this on the updated Kindles.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  669. &lt;br /&gt;
  670. &lt;b&gt;TABLETS: Option to reset your 4th Generation Kindle Fire &lt;i&gt;tablet&lt;/i&gt; from Fire OS 5 to Fire OS 4&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  671. I&#39;ve had a couple of complaints from users who found themselves faced with a very sudden, new tablet interface and HATED it. &amp;nbsp;They asked what they could do about it.  &amp;nbsp;I don&#39;t have a tablet that gets the new update/upgrade, but I advised them to wait a bit to see if they might like it better after some time. &amp;nbsp;As it turns out, they did find new features that make the new Fire OS5 update worth keeping. &amp;nbsp; One is the ability to switch easily between currently running programs. &amp;nbsp;It works well.&lt;br /&gt;
  672. &lt;br /&gt;
  673. &amp;nbsp; HOWEVER, I saw, on the Kindle forum, that some have, nevertheless, wanted to return to the old &quot;Fire OS4 Version, and Amazon has made this possible, but it involves a Factory Reset and you lose personal docs and customizations made.&lt;br /&gt;
  674. &lt;br /&gt;
  675. &amp;nbsp; Here&#39;s Amazon&#39;s help page that details how to &quot;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/reset-os5-to-os4&quot; target=_blank&gt;Reset and Downgrade Your 4th Generation Fire Tablet to Fire OS 4&lt;/a&gt;.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;

  689. &lt;b&gt;A quick alert on two new Alexa-enabled &lt;i&gt;Amazon Tap&lt;/i&gt; and &lt;i&gt;Echo Dot&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  690. I read about these this morning, from a couple of email pieces, one that was probably sent to most of us.&lt;br /&gt;
  691. &lt;br /&gt;
  692. For those who didn&#39;t see them, here are the salient points quoted plus a photo of the Comparison table&#39;s Amazon Tap speaker features-detail (that are compared with other speakers on the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazontap&quot; target=_blank&gt;product page&lt;/a&gt;) that will give an idea of what it can do vs features on other popular speakers. &lt;i&gt;Voice Search&lt;/i&gt; is one.&lt;br /&gt;
  693. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazontap&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/amazon-tap.jpg&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;479&quot; height=&quot;935&quot; vspace=7&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  694. &lt;br /&gt;
  695. &lt;br /&gt;
  696. &lt;br /&gt;
  697. &lt;br /&gt;
  698. &lt;br /&gt;
  699. &lt;br /&gt;
  700. &lt;br /&gt;
  701. &lt;br /&gt;
  702. &lt;b&gt;At the left: Amazon Tap features used in a comparison table&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  703. &lt;br /&gt;
  704. &lt;br /&gt;
  705. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazontap&quot; target=_blank&gt;&quot;&lt;b&gt;Amazon Tap&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; is an &lt;b&gt;Alexa-enabled portable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speaker&lt;/b&gt; that gives you rich, full-range sound.&lt;br /&gt;
  706. &lt;br /&gt;
  707. &amp;nbsp; Just tap the microphone button and &lt;b&gt;ask for music, request the news, search for information, order a pizza, and more&lt;/b&gt; with the &lt;b&gt;Alexa Voice Service&lt;/b&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  708. &lt;br /&gt;
  709. &amp;nbsp; Amazon Tap has &lt;b&gt;dual stereo speakers with Dolby processing&lt;/b&gt; that provides crisp vocals, extended bass response, and &lt;b&gt;360° omni-directional audio&lt;/b&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  710. &lt;br /&gt;
  711. &amp;nbsp;&lt;b&gt;Small and easy to travel with&lt;/b&gt;, you can enjoy great music and Alexa wherever you are. &quot;&lt;br clear=&quot;left&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  712. &lt;br /&gt;
  713. &lt;b&gt;Echo Dot&lt;/b&gt; - Amazon&#39;s description:  &lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/echo-dot&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;Echo Dot&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; uses the same far-field voice recognition as Echo and is a convenient addition to any room of the house.&lt;br /&gt;
  714. &lt;br /&gt;
  715. &amp;nbsp;  &lt;b&gt;Directly connect Echo Dot to speakers with an audio cable or via Bluetooth&lt;/b&gt;, and &lt;br /&gt;
  716. &lt;b&gt;add voice-control to your home stereo system&lt;/b&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  717. &lt;br /&gt;
  718. &amp;nbsp;  With its &lt;b&gt;built-in speaker&lt;/b&gt;, you can place Dot in the bedroom and use it as a &lt;b&gt;smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights&lt;/b&gt;,&lt;br /&gt;
  719. &lt;br /&gt;
  720. &amp;nbsp; or use Dot in the kitchen to &lt;b&gt;easily set timers&lt;/b&gt; and &lt;b&gt;add items to your shopping list using just your voice&lt;/b&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  721. &lt;br /&gt;
  722. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/echo-dot&quot; target=_blank&gt;Echo Dot&lt;/a&gt; is available for $89.99 in &lt;b&gt;limited quantities &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;exclusively for Prime members&lt;/font&gt; through Alexa Voice Shopping&lt;/b&gt;. Limit 1 per order, 2 per customer. &amp;nbsp;To order your Echo Dot, existing Echo and Fire TV customers can just say “Alexa, order an Echo Dot.”  &#39; &lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  723. &lt;br /&gt;

  736. &lt;b&gt;Quick alert for &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;UK&lt;/font&gt; owners of the current &lt;nobr&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fire50-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire 7&quot;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/nobr&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firekids-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire for Kids&lt;/a&gt; tablets.&lt;/b&gt; (&lt;b&gt;UK&lt;/b&gt; models only)&lt;br /&gt;
  737. &lt;br /&gt;
  738. For those who may have missed Amazon&#39;s alerts in their email, &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.digitalspy.com/tech/tablets/news/a785442/amazon-uk-recalls-kindle-fire-chargers-over-health-and-safety-risk/&quot; target=_blank&gt;DigitalSpy&lt;/a&gt; and other tech sites report on the Amazon &lt;b&gt;recall of &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;chargers&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; for the two models linked above) because of an electric shock risk.&quot;&lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; The chargers could be dangerous if the adapter assembly starts to detach - an issue that can occur when the component is pulled from the wall.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  739. Amazon has assured customers that this only happens &quot;in rare cases&quot; but they&#39;re asking that anyone who purchased one of these tablets sold in the UK and Ireland since September 2015 stop using it.&lt;br /&gt;
  740. &lt;br /&gt;
  741. &amp;nbsp; They&#39;re offering a choice of an exchange for these chargers for free or an Amazon credit of £12 placed in the customer&#39;s Amazon-UK account so that the customer can purchase a third-party replacement. &lt;br /&gt;
  742. &lt;br /&gt;
  743. &amp;nbsp; Until you can get a replacement, Amazon recommends using the bundled USB cable with &lt;i&gt;another&lt;/i&gt; compatible adapter.&lt;br /&gt;
  744. &lt;br /&gt;
  745. &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/science-technology/amazon-warns-electric-shock-danger-7480351&quot; target=_blank&gt;DailyRecord&lt;/a&gt; writes: &lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; Anxious parents and Kindle Fire owners are being urged to check charger plugs with the &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;model number FABK7B&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; and contact the e-tailer’s customer services at &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazon-uk-contact-us&quot; target=_blank&gt;amazon.co.uk/contactus&lt;/a&gt; for advice and power cable replacements. &#39; &lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

  756. &lt;b&gt;Where ISN&#39;T Jeff Bezos these days and what isn&#39;t he doing?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  757. &lt;br /&gt;
  758. &lt;a href=&quot;http://money.cnn.com/2016/01/22/media/jeff-bezos-jason-rezaian/index.html&quot; target=_blank&gt;Michael Calderone&lt;/a&gt; tweeted this photo (&lt;i&gt;credit: @jehld&lt;/i&gt;) of Jeff Bezos and Jason Rezaian before JB brought them home to the U.S. on a private plane -- story at CNN.&lt;br /&gt;
  759. &lt;br /&gt;
  760. Headline: &quot;Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, the owner of the Washington Post, quietly traveled to Germany this week to personally escort Post reporter Jason Rezaian home to the United States&quot; on a private plane from Germany after Rezaian&#39;s release from an Iranian prison where he was held for a year and a half, very shortly after being interviewed in Iran by Anthony Bourdain for his CNN travel foodamentary for the3 &quot;Parts Unknown&quot; series.&lt;br /&gt;
  761. &lt;br /&gt;
  762. It was disconcerting to see Rezaian extolling the beauty of Iran over dinner, with his wife beside him and realizing it was probably dangerous and then find out he was arrested not long after that. &amp;nbsp;He has dual citizenship, and he was fairly quickly thrown into jail for &#39;spying&#39; activities which is almost surely bunk. &amp;nbsp;His release was as as part of the recent prisoner swap. &amp;nbsp;Rezaian&#39;s wife, released months earlier from jail, was scheduled to have her own trial there in a few months, but she (no surprise!) came back to the U.S. with him, though some monitors tried to stop her from joining him.&lt;br /&gt;
  763. &lt;br /&gt;
  764. I think he was mainly the Iranian government&#39;s ace in the hole - a big bargaining chip for them.&lt;br /&gt;
  765. &lt;br /&gt;
  766. Glad he got back, and I hope he doesn&#39;t go back soon.  What a nightmare.&lt;br /&gt;
  767. .&lt;br /&gt;
  768. So, we&#39;ve seen JB go from the guy who sells books in his garage to the guy who now owns The Washington Post and gets involved in international politics when not involved with rockets or drones. &lt;br /&gt;
  769. &lt;br /&gt;
  770. &lt;br /&gt;
  771. &lt;font size=1&gt;(Additional info for blog entry: &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/rezaian-statement-wp&quot; target=_blank&gt;Jason Rezian&#39;s statement&lt;/a&gt; Jan 20 after he arrived in Germany, freed finally from the unexpected ordeal in Iran.)&lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

UPDATED January 22, 2016</title><description>&lt;br /&gt;
  790. &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/kprimebooks&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/KOLL-list.jpg&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;188&quot; hspace=14 vspace=7&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &lt;b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  791. Finding the Kindle Owners&#39; Lending Library (&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;KOLL&lt;/font&gt;)&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  792. &amp;nbsp; - &lt;font size=1&gt;May 2015 but &lt;b&gt;Updated&lt;/b&gt; Jan 22, 2016,&lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  793. While looking up info for &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/primemusicpage&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime Music&lt;/a&gt; to use with the new Amazon &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazonechopage&quot; target=_blank&gt;Echo&lt;/a&gt; that I finally received, and to answer questions for friends who have received one as well, I found that the older methods for finding KOLL had changed for the later Kindle Fire tablets. &lt;br clear=&quot;left&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  794. &lt;br /&gt;
  795. Also, the &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/kollprime&quot; target=_blank&gt;Kindle Owners&#39; Lending Library&lt;/a&gt; (&lt;i&gt;KOLL&lt;/i&gt;) is no longer highlighted in the top banners when you go to the book store, and the link to it, on Kindle Fire tablets, is in the unseen menu that you need to swipe to the right, from the left edge, to see -- or you can click on the TINY menu icon at the top left to get the options, but I usually have better luck with the swiping method.&lt;br /&gt;
  796. &lt;br /&gt;
  797. So, this is a refresher for those who&#39;ve not used it for awhile (like me) and may be completely new info for recent Kindle owners because Amazon features, more visibly, (1) &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kw-ku&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;i&gt;Kindle Unlimited&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;, a ($10/month subscription that allows anyone to borrow up to 10 books at a given time instead of only Kindle device owners being able to borrow  one-only per calendar month for free), as well as (2) the &lt;a href=&quot;#kfirst&quot;&gt;Kindle First&lt;/a&gt; program and other currently highlighted features.&lt;br /&gt;
  798. &lt;br /&gt;
  799. &lt;b&gt;For details on how the Kindle Owners&#39; Lending Library wime-orks&lt;/b&gt;, see the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/KOLL-blog-articles&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;scrolling page of Kindleworld blog articles&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; on this feature. &lt;br /&gt;
  800. &lt;br /&gt;
  801. &amp;nbsp; The details found on that scrolling page will answer a lot of common questions about the program. &lt;br /&gt;
  802. &lt;br /&gt;
  803. The Kindle Owners&#39; Lending library started with only 5,000+ books and is currently at over 1,160,000 Kindle books, according to my Paperwhite 2&#39;s all-categories display for the lending library.&lt;br /&gt;
  804. &lt;br /&gt;
  805. And here, seen in a web browser, is a &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/kprimebooks&quot; target=_blank&gt;straight listing&lt;/a&gt; of over 1,188,000 &lt;i&gt;Prime-Eligible&lt;/i&gt; Kindle books, the default listing being those that Amazon is currently featuring -- and if you change the Sorting (at top right) from &quot;Featured&quot; to &quot;Avg Customer Review,&quot; you&#39;ll see which ones have a lot of 5-star ratings for whatever reasons.&lt;br /&gt;
  806. &lt;br /&gt;
  807. &amp;nbsp; The &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kw-ku&quot; target=_blank&gt;Kindle Unlimited&lt;/a&gt; program includes books that are not Prime-Eligible. &amp;nbsp;Harry Potter books are a part of the Kindle Unlimited subscription feature, but it seems that most Potter books are not designated &quot;Prime&quot;-eligible currently (Publisher did not agree to do it), so Prime members who are Kindle owners cannot borrow those to read via KOLL/Prime program, but KOLL subscribers can of course borrow them plus nine other books to read at any given time, for their $10/month.&lt;br /&gt;
  808. &lt;br /&gt;
  809. &amp;nbsp; The lending library (KOLL) started with only 5,000+ books and the number of Prime-Eligible books for borrowing for reading on Kindle devices is currently at over 1,188,000+ Kindle books. &lt;br /&gt;
  810. &lt;br /&gt;
  811. &amp;nbsp; The more-often featured &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kw-ku&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;i&gt;Kindle Unlimited&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt; program gets Amazon $10/mo from each member for the flexibility allowing almost unlimited borrowing from that set of over a million Kindle books, &lt;i&gt;available to users of ANY reading device&lt;/i&gt; (not just Kindle Owners).&lt;br /&gt;
  812. &lt;br /&gt;
  813. &amp;nbsp; On both, you can browse by categories or, &lt;i&gt;when using a Kindle e-Ink eReader or a Kindle Fire tablet&lt;/i&gt;, you can &lt;b&gt;search&lt;/b&gt; the lending library. The Kindle Fire tablets use up more room with their large color book cover graphics, and the  Search feature is very important when you&#39;re looking for a specific book or topic.&lt;br /&gt;
  814. &lt;br /&gt;
  815. &amp;nbsp; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-us&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime&lt;/a&gt; shipping members (UK &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;) who own Kindle devices can use KOLL, but it&#39;s not available on Kindle apps for other devices. &lt;br /&gt;
  816. &lt;br /&gt;
  817. &amp;nbsp; You can borrow &lt;b&gt;one Kindle book per calendar month&lt;/b&gt;,  from a choice of over 1,188,000 now, without dealing with waiting times or  due-dates. &amp;nbsp;The Big6 publishers don&#39;t tend to place their books in this library though.&lt;br /&gt;
  818. &lt;br /&gt;
  819. &amp;nbsp; I borrowed a book the other day (after returning one I had held onto for a long time), so I won&#39;t be able to borrow another one until the next calendar month, June, after I return the current loan. &lt;br /&gt;
  820. &lt;br /&gt;
  821. &lt;i&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  822. &amp;nbsp; Prime&lt;/i&gt;&#39;s Lending Library:&lt;br /&gt;
  823. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/kollhelp&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Rules for borrowing&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  824. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Note:&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;When you borrow a Prime library book,&lt;br /&gt;
  825. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; you do this from your Kindle, at the Kindle&#39;s Kindle Store&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  826. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; and not from the Amazon web pages. &lt;br /&gt;
  827. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; The BIG RED $0.00 you see on the product page for &quot;Prime&quot; cost &lt;br /&gt;
  828. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; means it&#39;s $0.00 to Borrow it, from the Kindle,&lt;br /&gt;
  829. &lt;br /&gt;
  830. &lt;br /&gt;
  831. &lt;b&gt;How to borrow from the KOLL on your Kindle&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  832. Amazon changes the navigation process somewhat as the years and models roll by. The Help page they have is not quite up to date because the navigation steps tend to differ a bit between the devices.&lt;br /&gt;
  833. &lt;br /&gt;
  834. The first images below are from Amazon, showing &lt;b&gt;generally&lt;/b&gt; (vaguely) what the process looks like on e-Ink eReaders, &lt;br /&gt;
  835. and those images are followed by some screenshots of the process on my Year 2013 Kindle Fire HDX tablet.&lt;br /&gt;
  836. &lt;br /&gt;
  837. &lt;b&gt;Getting to the Lending Library&lt;/b&gt; -- On the &lt;b&gt;Kindle e-Ink eReaders&lt;/b&gt;, Amazon seems to have changed the method a bit very recently, on the varying devices (maybe they&#39;re programmed by different Kindle teams).&lt;br /&gt;
  838. &lt;br /&gt;
  839. On my Paperwhite 2, Year 2014~, there are two ways:&lt;br /&gt;
  840. &amp;nbsp; 1. I can tap the top-right Menu and Select &quot;&lt;i&gt;Shop Kindle Store&lt;/i&gt;&quot; &lt;br /&gt;
  841. That brings up the store menu, and then I need to tap the top-right store-menu, which offers the &quot;Kindle Owners&#39; Lending Library&#39; option near the bottom.  &lt;br /&gt;
  842. &amp;nbsp; 2. I can also tqp the CART icon at the top, which also takes me to the store, where a tap on the store menu at top-right will offer me the KOLL option near the bottom.&lt;br /&gt;
  843. &lt;br /&gt;
  844. The resulting KOLL page for e-Ink readers DEFAULTS now to just show &lt;b&gt;all categories&lt;/b&gt; (pure text) &lt;i&gt;without&lt;/i&gt; requiring us to choose All Categories as some older models do &amp;nbsp;It&#39;s well organized.&lt;br /&gt;
  845. &lt;br /&gt;
  846. &amp;nbsp; Older Kindle e-Ink readers will differ somewhat in several ways, as mentioned (I no longer have one to use for tests). &amp;nbsp;The Amazon help page does still mention choosing &quot;&lt;i&gt;All Categories&lt;/i&gt;&quot; or maybe &quot;&lt;i&gt;See all categories&lt;/i&gt;&quot; before seeing the Lending Library option, but that doesn&#39;t apply to my Paperwhite2 eReader.&lt;br /&gt;
  847. &lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/00-KOLL-eInk.jpg&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; height=&quot;479&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  848. &lt;br /&gt;
  849. Here&#39;s Amazon&#39;s VIDEO-tutorial (this video doesn&#39;t run on e-Ink Kindle Blog Edition subscriptions), which uses a recent Kindle eReader model &amp;nbsp; Although the steps shown in the video don&#39;t match precisely steps needed for various eReaders, their current help page indicates that the KOLL benefits are available on any Kindle eReader.  Continue to let us know if you have problems finding KOLL on an old Kindle e-Ink Reader. &amp;nbsp;I&#39;ll look into it more.&lt;br /&gt;
  850. &lt;br /&gt;
  851. &amp;nbsp;VIDEO: (Kindle Blog Edition subscribers shouldn&#39;t try to run this. &amp;nbsp;Use a computer, tablet, or smartphone instead)&lt;center&gt;&lt;iframe height=&quot;288&quot; id=&quot;viddler-7aef1cdc&quot; mozallowfullscreen=&quot;true&quot; src=&quot;//www.viddler.com/embed/7aef1cdc/?f=1&amp;amp;autoplay=0&amp;amp;player=full&amp;amp;secret=103366756&amp;amp;loop=0&amp;amp;nologo=0&amp;amp;hd=0&amp;amp;scAccountName=acsus-prod&quot; webkitallowfullscreen=&quot;true&quot; width=&quot;437&quot;&gt; &lt;/iframe&gt; &lt;/center&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  852. That comes from the Kindle &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/borrow-fromkoll-ereaders&quot; target=_blank&gt;borrowing-help page&lt;/a&gt; -- the text steps on that page are not entirely clear, but it&#39;s helpful to read it. &amp;nbsp;It has links to areas that explain other aspects of the borrowing programs.&lt;br /&gt;
  853. &lt;br /&gt;
  854. On a &lt;b&gt;Kindle Fire tablet&lt;/b&gt;, you&#39;d click on &#39;Books&#39; in the top menu.&lt;br /&gt;
  855. Then, at your library listing, click on the &quot;Store&quot; icon at top-right corner.&lt;br /&gt;
  856. &lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/01-books-library.jpg&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; height=&quot;400&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  857. &lt;br /&gt;
  858. At the Bookstore, swipe right, from left edge, to get the options &lt;br /&gt;
  859. and choose &quot;Kindle Owners&#39; Lending Library,&quot; near the bottom of the page.&lt;br /&gt;
  860. (These are all Prime-eligible books and show as $0.00 for Kindle Unlimited users as well.)&lt;br /&gt;
  861. &lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/02-store-books.jpg&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; height=&quot;400&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  862. &lt;br /&gt;
  863. When you get the KOLL screen to browse, &lt;br /&gt;
  864. you can also search for a book or author at the top.&lt;br /&gt;
  865. I typed &#39;Amy Tan&#39; into the search field.&lt;br /&gt;
  866. &lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/03-KOLL-and-search.jpg&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;300&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  867. &lt;br /&gt;
  868. I didn&#39;t find anything by Tan in the Kindle Owners&#39; Lending Library&lt;br /&gt;
  869. and chose from results showing books with similar content.&lt;br /&gt;
  870. When deciding on one, you&#39;ll see &quot;Borrow for Free&quot; under the orange &quot;Buy for ___&quot;.&lt;br /&gt;

  872. &lt;br /&gt;
  873. When I did this, Amazon reminded me that I still had a book out from this library&lt;br /&gt;
  874. and I needed to return it first, as we get only one book per calendar month.&lt;br /&gt;
  875. &lt;center&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/05-return-before-new-loan.jpg&quot; width=&quot;600&quot; height=&quot;400&quot;&gt; &lt;/center&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

  878. &lt;br /&gt;
  879. &lt;b&gt;The Kindle First program&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  880. The &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlefirst&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;i&gt;Kindle First&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt; program, introduced by Amazon in the U.S., is  &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlefirst-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;also available in the UK&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  881. &lt;br /&gt;
  882. &amp;nbsp; For those who haven&#39;t tried it yet, in either country, Amazon offers, each month, 4 of the next month&#39;s new releases  early and from these you can select one. &amp;nbsp;They&#39;re Editors&#39; Picks, and anyone can buy one of the featured book for $.99 (or UK  £0.99). &amp;nbsp;HOWEVER if you are a &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-us&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime&lt;/a&gt; (UK prime page &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;) program member, you get that selection for FREE (capitalization courtesy of Amazon).&lt;br /&gt;

  895. &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.pbase.com/andrys/image/81190260&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/carrara-mImg_6398-kworld.jpg&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;450&quot; height=&quot;285&quot; hspace=14 vspace=7&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &lt;b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  896. A few changes in Amazon features over the last few months, not often mentioned.&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  897. &lt;br /&gt;
  898. (The photo at left of what looks like snow in winter is actually of the marble mountains of Carrara, Italy. &amp;nbsp;The &#39;snow&#39; is marble; this is where Michelangelo chose his marble for his sculptures, living there for a few months at a time -- there is marble  dust in the air of course. &amp;nbsp;I took this photo in 2006, and it&#39;s from a &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/carrara-blog&quot;&gt;photo set&lt;/a&gt; at PBase.).&lt;br /&gt;
  899. &lt;br /&gt;
  900. Amazon has emailed everyone almost daily about their favorite products being on sale, so there was no need for this blog to call attention to those each day. &amp;nbsp;But I&#39;ll list today some of the minor changes that have been occurring, for any who might be interested in those.&lt;br /&gt;
  901. &lt;br /&gt;
  902. Amazon&#39;s slowed down on hardware news, and their many books specials are sent to all regular customers directly on a daily basis. &amp;nbsp;If there is anything you&#39;d like to see covered here, let me know at &lt;i&gt;andrys [at] panix dot com&lt;/i&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  903. &lt;br /&gt;
  904. &lt;b&gt;General Tips&lt;/b&gt; - for Kindle tablet owners who are distracted by all that&#39;s available in movies and TV shows and, of course,  many of us use Amazon &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwt0613&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime Music&lt;/a&gt; quite a bit ... When I see items that I haven&#39;t known about and think they&#39;d interest others, I&#39;ll start including more generalized tips.&lt;br /&gt;
  905. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Today&#39;s:&lt;/b&gt; I came across a &quot;What tune was that?&quot; website for &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.tunefind.com&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;finding music used in movies and TV&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt;, which currently includes 581 TV shows. &amp;nbsp;I saw this in a discussion of an episode of the totally amoral &quot;How to Get Away with Murder,&quot; and -- as an example -- for Season 1 there are 15 episodes, with a total of 46 songs, and for Season 2, 9 episodes with 30 songs.&lt;br /&gt;
  906. &lt;br /&gt;
  907. &lt;b&gt;Amazon&#39;s &quot;Blue Shade&quot; feature was added to Yr 2015 Fire tablets in an update (v5.1.1)&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  908. Amazon has been slowly distributing, &quot;over the air,&quot; software &lt;b&gt;update v5.1.1&lt;/b&gt; to its Fire OS 5 (&quot;Bellini&quot;) operating system used on the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazon2015devices&quot; target=_blank&gt;current Year 2015 tablets&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  909. &lt;br /&gt;
  910. The &quot;Blue Shade&quot; mode added is an option for those who like to read at night before sleeping, because studies have indicated that  the blue light from current tablets and smartphones can affect melatonin production and therefore the quality of sleep. Amazon&#39;s e-Ink eReaders, back-lit, don&#39;t emit blue light. &amp;nbsp;For the most recent Fire tablets using OS 5, the new mode uses filters (adjustable in Settings) to limit the amount of emitted blue light from the screen, which some feel makes these devices more comfortable to read at night.  &lt;br /&gt;
  911. &lt;br /&gt;
  912. &amp;nbsp; The settings that control the color warmth and brightness level of the resulting light is fully adjustable by the user, and they&#39;ve included an “ultra low” brightness level (which would also help any partners nearby trying to sleep).&lt;br /&gt;
  913. &lt;br /&gt;
  914. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firehd8readersedition&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/firehd8reader-t.jpg&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;160&quot; height=&quot;81&quot; hspace=14 vspace=5&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &amp;nbsp; In connection with this, Amazon has featured the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firehd8readersedition&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire HD 8 Reader&#39;s Edition&lt;/a&gt;, normally priced at $149.99, but bundled with one year of the $119.80 &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/ku-freetrial&quot; target=_blank&gt;Kindle Unlimited subscription&lt;/a&gt; and with their $79.99 &quot;rustic leather case&quot; ($349.86 total if purchased separately) for $249.99.  &lt;br /&gt;
  915. &lt;br /&gt;
  916. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Other features&lt;/b&gt; in the recent &quot;OS 5.1.1 update to the Yr 2015 Fire tablets are described by &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.androidheadlines.com/2015/12/amazon-releases-update-fire-os-5-tablets.html&quot; target=_blank&gt;Androidheadlines&lt;/a&gt;: &lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; There is a new browser designed for children that users could activate on the FreeTime section, parents can choose a list of websites that would be appropriate for their children. Amazon and Common Sense Media chose over 40,000 YouTube videos dedicated for children, which they can view on the FreeTime browser. There’s also a new Activity Center for parents outside of FreeTime, which allows them to know how their kids are using the tablet and how much time have they spent on specific apps or games as well as seeing their browser history and everything they have accessed. The update should be now available now for the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firehd8&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire HD 8&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firehd-10&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire HD 10&lt;/a&gt; and other Fire tablets, although the process might take up to two weeks to complete. &#39; &lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  917. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;A fix noted in update v5.1.1&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  918. Reader Irv Fullerton had reported to Amazon some problems in the original &lt;i&gt;OS 5&lt;/i&gt; functioning. &amp;nbsp;He followed up today with the following: &lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; Amazon fixed the error within the WPS office software - which now allows a user to actually access the icons at the top of each page of an open document. &amp;nbsp;For me - this was a huge fix as it now allowed me to work with spreadsheets I have saved within the Amazon Cloud...&#39; &lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  919. &amp;nbsp; What about older tablets? Some had thought that earlier Kindle Fire tablets would get the &lt;i&gt;Blue Shade&lt;/i&gt; feature and other OS 5 additions via an update later on. &amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/135336-what-s-new-in-amazon-fire-os-5-bellini&quot; target=_blank&gt;Pocket-link&lt;/a&gt; had stated, &quot;&lt;i&gt;The Amazon Fire OS 5 Bellini will come with the latest tablets from Amazon and will be available for older tablets via an over the air update in the coming months&lt;/i&gt;&quot; -- but the development community hasn&#39;t reported seeing an indication of that yet.&lt;br /&gt;
  920. &lt;br /&gt;
  921. &amp;nbsp; The &quot;Twilight App&quot; (Android) offers a similar blue-light-filter feature, and earlier-Kindle Fire owners can download this app by using the normal android-device app-install setting that allows using apps from &quot;unknown sources&quot; and getting apps from places like 1mobile and slideme.&lt;br /&gt;
  922. &lt;br /&gt;
  923. &amp;nbsp; This alternate-apps-source method is called &quot;side loading&quot; (getting apps from a secondary apps store) and it involves no changes to the operating system, is NOT a &#39;rooting&#39; method nor a &#39;hack&#39; but a mere enabling of a setting to allow an alternate source for android apps while being careful to use only appstores that Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlecommunity&quot; target=_blank&gt;Kindle Community forum&lt;/a&gt; members have tried and recommend.&lt;br /&gt;
  924. &amp;nbsp; See this blog&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwt1123&quot; target=_blank&gt;guide for sideloading&lt;/a&gt; non-Amazon store and non-GooglePlay store apps.&lt;br /&gt;
  925. &lt;br /&gt;
  926. &amp;nbsp; I&#39;ve tried that &#39;Twilight app&#39; on my Yr 2013 Kindle Fire HDX 8.9&quot; tablet, and while it&#39;s very flexible and works well, I prefer to use the basic old, built-in &quot;Aa&quot; option setting of &quot;Sepia&quot; or &#39;White&#39; with the brightness turned down, probably because I have no trouble sleeping well after using it this way. &amp;nbsp;As most will have noticed, there&#39;s also an option to read white text against black, on all the Amazon tablets, which bed parters trying to sleep during your late-hour reading sessions will appreciate.    &lt;br /&gt;
  927. &lt;br /&gt;
  928. &lt;b&gt;Amazon Prime members can now subscribe to ShowTime, Starz, and more&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  929. &lt;a href=&quot;http://sacredheartspectrum.com/2015/12/amazon-prime-members-can-now-subscribe-to-showtime-starz/&quot; target=_blank&gt;Sacred Heart Spectrum&lt;/a&gt; alerts us to new offerings for Prime members looking to cut cable tv costs or to view series they&#39;ve missed. (In fact their HBO Prime INstant videos allow people to catch up on earlier or initial episodes of very popular series, without needing the usual cable TV add-on subscriptions.&lt;br /&gt;
  930. &amp;nbsp;For those of us cutting our cable TV use because it&#39;s so expensive, companies like Hulu have added separate subscriptions (not needing a cable TV subscription) for premium offerings like Showtime, for ~$9. &amp;nbsp;I cut my cable TV/Internet/Phone bill by $70/mo. by taking only the basic+extended cable (which includes the nation-wide news like CNN + and &quot;edutainment&quot; stations like Discovery Channel, etc.), and I cut any premium features, but I then subscribed to Showtime on Hulu for $9/mo.&lt;br /&gt;
  931. &lt;br /&gt;
  932. &amp;nbsp; Now I&#39;ll probably change over to Amazon for the Showtime because, via Amazon, that&#39;ll include my favorite video feature, &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kw-xray&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;i&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;X-Ray&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; for movies&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt; and for &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwn0408a&quot; target=_blank&gt;TV shows&lt;/a&gt;, which gives you added info, OnDemand, from Amazon&#39;s IMDB subsdiary, such as: What actors are in the current scene? (if you pause it).  &amp;nbsp;The links are to fuller descriptions of what this version of X-Ray does for each.&lt;br /&gt;
  933. &lt;br /&gt;
  934. &amp;nbsp; Amazon calls their new offering the &quot;&lt;i&gt;Streaming Partners Program&lt;/i&gt;,&quot; which includes 30 or more different streaming services which are &#39;paid&#39; features on cable TV and would be available for Amazon &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-us&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime members&lt;/a&gt; for whatever extra monthly fee. &amp;nbsp;Showtime is $8.99/mo.&lt;br /&gt;
  935. &lt;br /&gt;
  936. &amp;nbsp; The Streaming Partner subscriptions will also include a &quot;&lt;b&gt;unified voice search&lt;/b&gt;&quot; when you watch it on &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firetv-2&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire Tv&lt;/a&gt; (SO much better than pressing alpha-characters on those alphabetically-sorted keyboard forms). &amp;nbsp;Also, the Sacred Heart article reports that Amazon will be &quot;making partners&#39; newest episodes &lt;i&gt;&lt;b&gt;simultaneous&lt;/b&gt; with the broadcast&lt;/i&gt;.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  937. &lt;br /&gt;
  938. &amp;nbsp; They add that &#39;Showtime produces such acclaimed programming as &quot;&lt;i&gt;Homeland&lt;/i&gt;&quot; and &quot;&lt;i&gt;The Affair&lt;/i&gt;&quot; while Starz is the home of shows like &quot;&lt;i&gt;Outlander&lt;/i&gt;&quot; and &quot;&lt;i&gt;Flesh and Bone&lt;/i&gt;.&quot; &amp;nbsp;Viewers can watch them through Internet-enabled TVs and Blu-ray players, streaming media players, gaming consoles and mobile devices. &amp;nbsp;Amazon &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-us&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime&lt;/a&gt; keeps it all on the web and on any device with the Amazon Video app.&#39;&lt;br /&gt;
  939. &lt;br /&gt;
  940. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;SIDENOTE:&lt;/b&gt; One advantage of the Amazon &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firetv-2&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire TV&lt;/a&gt; is that you can mirror your tablet (though not the new $50 tablet) or smartphone display to the Fire TV to share the content with others more easily. &amp;nbsp;Most Android tablets and the Amazon-specific tablets, as well as recent Windows laptops come with &#39;Miracast&#39; or &quot;mirroring&quot; capability. &amp;nbsp;I Was able to mirror my Windows laptop to it, along with my Windows phone (Nokia 1020) attached to the laptop -- this allowed me to view all my phone contents &lt;i&gt;mirror&lt;/i&gt;&#39;d on the Fire TV, even though the phone, itself, has no mirroring capability, since the laptop did. &lt;br /&gt;
  941. &lt;br /&gt;
  942. &lt;b&gt;Amazon&#39;s Unlimited Photo Storage Now Shareable by Prime Subscribers&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  943. &lt;a href=&quot;http://petapixel.com/2015/11/21/amazons-unlimited-photo-storage-now-shareable-by-prime-subscribers/&quot; target=_blank&gt;PetaPixel&lt;/a&gt; reports that in addition to Prime members getting unlimited photo storage (including RAW files), this feature is now &lt;i&gt;shareable with one other adult in the household&lt;/i&gt;. &lt;br /&gt;
  944. &lt;br /&gt;
  945. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;NON&lt;/b&gt;-Prime members can get this subscription feature for $&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/clouddrivepricing&quot; target=_blank&gt;11.99/year&lt;/a&gt;, with a 3-month free trial. &lt;br /&gt;
  946. &amp;nbsp; There is NO limitation on the size or resolution of a photo file (as there are with other free-photo-storage sites) and Amazon promises not to change the file in anyway.&lt;br /&gt;
  947. &lt;br /&gt;
  948. &lt;b&gt;Amazon&#39;s Unlimited Everything Cloud-storage/backup plan&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  949. &amp;nbsp; That&#39;s for ALL files you want to have saved in the Cloud as backup -  not just photos. &amp;nbsp;This includes videos, which are usually the most space-grabbing files. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/clouddrivepricing&quot; target=_blank&gt;Normally $59.99/year&lt;/a&gt; (essentially $5/month), with a 3-month free trial.&lt;br /&gt;
  950. &lt;br /&gt;
  951. &amp;nbsp; During Black Friday week, this &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.thurrott.com/cloud/62604/get-one-year-of-unlimited-amazon-cloud-drive-storage-for-just-5&quot; target=_blank&gt;was&lt;/a&gt; offered that weekfor $5/year. &amp;nbsp;Paul Thurrott explains why he found that special a no-brainer. &amp;nbsp;Even for the normal $60/year, &quot;Unlimited&quot; file backup is still considered good for people who need or would feel more comfortable with knowing their files are accessible in case of hard drive (or worse) catastrophes.  &amp;nbsp;I haven&#39;t heard how fast or easy recovery of a file or file-set would be when needed, with Amazon&#39;s plan. But you can try that yourself with the that &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/clouddrivepricing&quot; target=_blank&gt;3-month Free trial&lt;/a&gt;. &lt;br /&gt;
  952. &lt;br /&gt;
  953. &amp;nbsp; Some sites say that if an Android tablet owner downloads the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwn0829&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon Underground app&lt;/a&gt; (free paid-apps) currently, s/he will receive an offer for a free-year of Unlimited Everything, within a day. &amp;nbsp;Unfortunately, Kindle Fire and Fire tablets have &lt;i&gt;Underground&lt;/i&gt; built in .&lt;br /&gt;
  954. &lt;br /&gt;
  955. &amp;nbsp; I do know that a friend received the following special offer yesterday based on a purchase within the last year:&lt;br /&gt;
  956. &amp;nbsp; &quot;Your purchase in the past 12 months of the &quot;Canon PowerShot SX60 HS Digital Camera - Wi-Fi Enabled...&quot; comes with a 1 FREE year of &lt;i&gt;Unlimited Everything&lt;/i&gt; cloud storage from Amazon Cloud Drive (a $59.99 value).&quot; &lt;br /&gt;
  957. &lt;br /&gt;
  958. &amp;nbsp; She was not sure how she&#39;d use it or if she would need such a thing, but it&#39;s a safety measure in case your hard drive dies, and most of us know this normally happens within 5 years. &amp;nbsp;I use another online backup service and it is really comforting to know everything I need is up there and I can recover any file (or version of a file) at any time. &amp;nbsp;While their pricing is similar, I&#39;m limited to 1 Terabyte on the Non-Amazon cloud-backup I use.  &amp;nbsp;Updated backups for the folders we choose are usually done automatically either daily or at any intervals you choose by any of these online backup sites.&lt;br /&gt;
  959. &lt;br /&gt;
  960. &lt;b&gt;AndroidHeadlines website announces &quot;Best Android App 2015&quot; and names three&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  961. #1 - the increasingly popular &quot;Periscope&quot; app (the broadcasting app that requires Compatibility &quot;with Android SDK level 19),&quot; &lt;br /&gt;

  967. You&#39;ve probably read about The Beatles (complete music) being available online and featured on Spotify (and IheartRadio) for free, the last couple of days. &amp;nbsp;Today Amazon announced that the full Beatles catalog is also available for free on Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwt0613&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime Music&lt;/a&gt; feature -- free streaming for Amazon &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-us&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime members&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  968. &lt;br /&gt;

  970. That should do for now, as we go about celebrating, holidaying, or having some good quiet time while remembering those for whom it may not be an easy time of year for all the reasons we know.&lt;br /&gt;

  976. &lt;b&gt;Just an alert to newsfeed and Kindle Blog Edition readers&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  977. &lt;br /&gt;
  978. While working on a blog article on recent minor Amazon feature changes and additions toward the end of the year, I updated two blog articles to make them usable for Year 2015 Fire Tablet users who find they need to use an app that&#39;s not in the Amazon app store and want a guide to how that is done as well as those who might need to use non-working Flash on some sites. &lt;br clear=&quot;left&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  979. &lt;br /&gt;
  980. &amp;nbsp; As a result I updated the following two articles, but blog newsfeeds (such as Feedly or NewsBlur) are not updated to show these articles as recent if they were first put online some time ago, even if they are updated from time to time after new lines of devices are released.&lt;br /&gt;

  995. &lt;b&gt;The stubborn MYTH that Kindle Fire HD tablets can use only Amazon Store apps&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;

  1000. &lt;/tbody&gt;&lt;/table&gt;&lt;/center&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1001. (Click on an image to see the larger version.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1002. &lt;br /&gt;
  1003. &lt;b&gt;Most large tech site reviewers don&#39;t know that Amazon allows installation of apps from non-Amazon sources&lt;/b&gt;, though Amazon  advises caution.&lt;br /&gt;
  1004. &amp;nbsp; (&lt;i&gt;Originally posted Nov. 23, 2012 - rev&#39;d 3/8/13, 1/3/15, and 12/22/15&lt;/i&gt;)&lt;br /&gt;
  1005. More tech-site reviewers have been discovering that Kindle Fire HD tablets (when chosen with enough storage space) are IN NO WAY limited to running only Amazon store apps. &amp;nbsp;Many will feel more comfortable staying with just the Amazon appstore, nevertheless. &lt;br /&gt;
  1006. &lt;br /&gt;
  1007. &amp;nbsp; Amazon Kindle Forum regulars often discuss how easy it is get the normal Google Play market apps &lt;b&gt;at other appstores&lt;/b&gt; when those apps are not available at Amazon and they also exchange experiences on some other app-stores&lt;br /&gt;
  1008. &lt;br /&gt;
  1009. &amp;nbsp; I always recommend, though, that people wait to get these from any sites (true for even Google Play market users as well) until they&#39;ve been up a few days and no one is having problems with malware or just new-update-instability. &amp;nbsp;Google vets their apps now but can take less time than Amazon to do that -- they have a lot more apps to deal with.&lt;br /&gt;
  1010. &lt;br /&gt;
  1011. &amp;nbsp; Kindle Fire HD comparison reviewers almost automatically say that the Amazon tablets can use only Amazon apps and therefore should not be considered except by Amazon customers -- but this kind of statement can come only from NOT taking the time to check the &lt;i&gt;normal&lt;/i&gt; Android settings.&lt;br /&gt;
  1012. &lt;br /&gt;
  1013. (&lt;b&gt;Updated 5/11/14&lt;/b&gt; to show one different settings-location for older and newer Kindle Fires.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1014. (&lt;b&gt;Updated 12/22/15&lt;/b&gt; to show the new settings-location for Yr 2015 Fire tablets.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1015. &lt;br /&gt;
  1016. &amp;nbsp; One click on one settings box is all it takes. &lt;blockquote&gt;&amp;nbsp; It&#39;s much easier than most would guess. &amp;nbsp;At the Top Row Toolbar of the Kindle Fire:&lt;br /&gt;
  1017. &lt;br /&gt;
  1018. &amp;nbsp; [For &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;EARLIER, Yr 2012&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; Kindle Fires (Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD, 1st Generation)]&lt;br /&gt;
  1019. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; Swipe down to get Settings / More / &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Device&lt;/font&gt; /  and then merely CHECK the box that says:&lt;br /&gt;
  1020. &amp;nbsp; &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Allow Installation of Applications from unknown sources&lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1021. &lt;br /&gt;
  1022. &amp;nbsp; [For &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;LATER Yr 2013-14&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; Kindle Fires (Kindle Fire HD, 2nd Generation+, and HDX line)]&lt;br /&gt;
  1023. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; Swipe down to get Settings / More / &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Applications&lt;/font&gt; /  and then merely CHECK the box that says:&lt;br /&gt;
  1024. &amp;nbsp; &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Allow Installation of Applications from unknown sources&lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1025. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; (The wording for Yr 2014 MAY Be &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Allow Installation of applications not from Appstore.&lt;/font&gt;)&lt;br /&gt;
  1026. &lt;br /&gt;
  1027. &amp;nbsp; [Updated December 22, 2015 after solution found for the Comment section in October 2015]&lt;br /&gt;
  1028. &amp;nbsp; [For &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;LATEST Yr 2015&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; Fire tablets line) ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1029. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; Swipe down to get Settings / &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Security&lt;/font&gt; / and then merely CHECK the box that says:&lt;br /&gt;
  1030. &amp;nbsp; &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Allow Installation of applications not from Appstore.&lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1031. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; although the wording might be somewhat different.&lt;br /&gt;
  1032. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; I didn&#39;t order a Year 2015 device and can&#39;t check the exact wording.&lt;br /&gt;
  1033. &lt;br /&gt;
  1034. &lt;br /&gt;
  1035. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; That&#39;s it!  Then you can go to &lt;b&gt;other app stores that are recommended&lt;/b&gt; for apps that Amazon does not have, such as 1mobile.com (now with 1.2 million Android apps), slideme.org, handango.com, m.getjar.com, and others, to find and download the app.&lt;br /&gt;
  1036. &lt;br /&gt;
  1037. &amp;nbsp; To install a downloaded app, use either &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/es-file-explorer&quot; target=_blank&gt;ES File Explorer&lt;/a&gt; or &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/easyinstaller&quot; target=_blank&gt;Easy Installer&lt;/a&gt; from Amazon&#39;s Android App store (or, &lt;i&gt;if you&#39;re not in the U.S. and aren&#39;t allowed to use Amazon&#39;s appstore&lt;/i&gt;, then from a place like the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/1mobilecom-apps&quot; target=_blank&gt;1Mobile.com site&lt;/a&gt;, using their store app on your Kindle -- it&#39;s downloadable at the right side of most 1mobile pages). &amp;nbsp;Above is a list of other app sites as well when any app is not available using the Amazon app store.&lt;br /&gt;
  1038. &lt;br /&gt;
  1039. &amp;nbsp;&lt;b&gt;Easy Installer&lt;/b&gt;&#39;s only job is to hunt down your downloaded app-install files (*.apk), so it&#39;s very useful if you can&#39;t find, on your device, an app that you know you downloaded.&lt;br /&gt;
  1040. &amp;nbsp; Be sure to access Settings the &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;first&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; time you use it, to &lt;b&gt;check&lt;/b&gt; the &#39;&lt;i&gt;Scan Hidden Directories&lt;/i&gt;&#39; box so that it can find apk files no matter where they were put. &lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1041. &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Important UPDATE&lt;/font&gt; - See &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwt1217&quot; target=_blank&gt;later version of the instructions for Google Earth + an alert&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/b&gt; to &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;NOT&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; get the Google Earth &lt;i&gt;update&lt;/i&gt; that came out mid-December and a link to get the much faster version just before that update. &amp;nbsp;(I&#39;ve not tried later versions to see if Google solved that loading problem but they likely did.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1042. &lt;br /&gt;
  1043. &lt;b&gt;Amazon&#39;s appstore should be supported though&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1044. &amp;nbsp; Of course, if Amazon carries the app, it&#39;s best to get it from Amazon because they do a strong vetting of the apps they offer and because it&#39;s the way they make revenue from tablets sold at cost. &amp;nbsp;I think it&#39;s important to support the Amazon Android app store, but I also think it&#39;s important that Amazon make more good apps available to us at a faster pace, and maybe they should have a suggestion box for the more popular requests.&lt;br /&gt;
  1045. &lt;br /&gt;
  1046. &lt;b&gt;An example of another app&lt;/b&gt; that regulars at the Amazon Kindle Forums have been getting and encouraging others to use as an alternative (sometimes with the recommendation of &quot;Forum Pros&quot; there)...&lt;br /&gt;
  1047. &lt;br /&gt;
  1048. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;How to Install a Flash Player on the Yr 2012 (and 2013-15) Kindle Fire tablets&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;:&lt;br /&gt;
  1049. &amp;nbsp; On Oct. 22, 2012, I first gave some installation steps that included the need to to tick a checkbox to enable apps from other sources (as mentioned above) and &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwt1022&quot; target=_blank&gt;listed step-by-step instructions&lt;/a&gt; for the &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Earlier&lt;/font&gt; Yr2012&lt;/b&gt; tablets on installing the Flash player function.  &amp;nbsp;This was in connection with an alternative browser (&lt;i&gt;Dolphin&lt;/i&gt;) along with the one Adobe Flash Player file that has been sure to work with Android 4.x (before v4.4) mobile systems that Adobe no longer supports for the later mobile devices -- the Kindle Fire HDs and the Google Nexus -- or is that Nexi?) &amp;nbsp;:-) &lt;br /&gt;
  1050. &lt;br /&gt;
  1051. &amp;nbsp; There is now a &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;LATER&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwv1229&quot; target=_blank&gt;article with step-by-step instructions&lt;/a&gt; for the &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Yr 2013-2015&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; tablets.&lt;br /&gt;
  1052. &amp;nbsp; It&#39;s been working reliably for me.&lt;br /&gt;
  1053. &lt;br /&gt;
  1054. &amp;nbsp; Most won&#39;t need this alternate browser (unless wanting to run flash routines for photography and music on some multimedia websites or watch network TV shows that are made available for those who missed a recent showing on TV) as I often do or who find some of the TV apps unreliable.&lt;br /&gt;
  1055. &lt;br /&gt;
  1056. &lt;a name=&quot;no-larger-text-fit-to-width&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt; &amp;nbsp;UNLIKE Youtube, which supplies HTML5 coding for videos if you don&#39;t have a working Flash player, TV networks still tend to use Flash-only for their larger videos. &amp;nbsp;They&#39;ll slowly change over, but until then, this is a good workaround, although some of their own TV-app updates have been unreliable, causing crashes -- and they have too many ads during shows. &amp;nbsp;The &quot;live&#39; features are good.&lt;br /&gt;
  1057. &lt;br /&gt;
  1058. &amp;nbsp; The TV-app versions require, though, that your cable or other hosting company is a participant for the app. &amp;nbsp;The tendency today is to force viewers into mobile-app viewing where the bandwidth needed for display size can be smaller and where they can keep stats on the many ads and the effectiveness of them. &amp;nbsp;They&#39;re probably starting to use them in some reporting of audience-share too. &amp;nbsp;They turn away &quot;Android&quot; browsers from the website versions and require the TV apps more and more.&lt;br /&gt;
  1059. &lt;br /&gt;
  1060. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;NOTE:&lt;/b&gt; &amp;nbsp;With Amazon&#39;s Kindle Fire &lt;i&gt;Silk&lt;/i&gt; web browser (no Flash player support on that), you can still reliably view the Youtube videos if you have your &quot;&lt;i&gt;Silk&lt;/i&gt;&quot; web browser menu settings for &lt;i&gt;Requested website view&lt;/i&gt; set to &quot;&lt;i&gt;Automatic&lt;/i&gt;&quot; rather than to &quot;&lt;i&gt;Desktop&lt;/i&gt;,&quot; although it takes you to the Mobile layout as a result, but youtube has enhanced that area. &amp;nbsp; (The Silk web browser Menu looks like the usual tablet menu rectangle with 3 horizontal lines, resembling an old washboard or an air conditioner.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1061. &lt;br /&gt;
  1062. &lt;b&gt;Amazon is due some high marks&lt;/b&gt; for the &quot;other-sources&quot; apps-decision (not walled as is said).&lt;br /&gt;
  1063. &lt;!--I hope that Kindle FIRE HD owners will realize that Amazon (&lt;b&gt;unlike&lt;/b&gt; Barnes &amp; Noble before B&amp;N stopped producing the HD tablet line) does allow its customers to install Android apps from OTHER (&#39;unknown&#39;) sources and that this is a BOON. &amp;nbsp;--&gt; Amazon made this decision starting with the original Kindle Fire. &amp;nbsp;Use Amazon&#39;s app store when they have the app - it&#39;s in the Cloud and gets vetting for the Kindle Fire tablet.&lt;br /&gt;
  1064. &lt;br /&gt;
  1065. &lt;br /&gt;
  1066. &lt;b&gt;[Note re other alternatives which I can write about later if there&#39;s interest]&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1067. [1.] I&#39;ve used the long-time APK-downloader by evozi group in Canada, when one is able to do that due to quotas they are under for bandwidth.&lt;br /&gt;
  1068. &lt;br /&gt;
  1069. &amp;nbsp; It&#39;s not as direct a download method as is using a store like 1mobile, and the site is filled with ads that promote ad-focused software that can be annoying and it&#39;s best to avoid clicking on those.&lt;br /&gt;
  1070. &lt;br /&gt;
  1071. &amp;nbsp; When the evozi site, which downloads from googleplay on behalf of the user, cannot fulfill requests due to quotas, they recommend the Chrome extension version. &amp;nbsp;That one requires your google password be passed through to them, and they promise that this is not stored and is only passed through. &amp;nbsp;They&#39;re a company in Canada, but that is a step of trust most may not be comfortable with. &amp;nbsp;If I feel like using them, I instead use their website version that requires having two windows open (for double-checking you&#39;re getting what you want) and doing copy and pasting. &amp;nbsp;I prefer direct downloads better and have had 2 years of good luck with 1mobile&#39;s store, with its 1.2 million apps that you can just download the way you do from Amazon&#39;s store.&lt;br /&gt;
  1072. &lt;br /&gt;
  1073. [2.] Some Google-play apps now require Google-play Services be present. &lt;br /&gt;
  1074. As an experiment, I tried steps from an article that tells us how to install Google Play Services on a Kindle WITHOUT &quot;Rooting&quot; or any Kindle software modifications. &amp;nbsp;Four files need to be added and installed in just the proper order and reboots done after each step, but enough people manage to ignore some steps and wind up with non-working google files and unable to easily get rid of Google error messages with their leftover Google files.&lt;br /&gt;
  1075. &amp;nbsp; So I don&#39;t recommend this for 98% of other customers. &amp;nbsp;Their Comments area shows too many people who didn&#39;t get good results, although there are a few others, like me, for whom this works. &amp;nbsp;I&#39;m not keen to contribute to that, as the apps that require Google-play services are few.&lt;br /&gt;
  1076. &lt;br /&gt;
  1077. &amp;nbsp; However, it works well on my Yr 2013 8.9&quot; HDX and I updated the Play Services file with the most recent one and also used a higher-DPI version than the author did. &amp;nbsp;(This is NOT a Store app -- the Google-Play store cannot be placed on a Kindle without rooting it, which I won&#39;t do since I bought the Kindle Fire for the great Amazon features). &amp;nbsp;The only downside for me is that when you load a Google app that needs those special Google support services or when you land on one of the app&#39;s main pages, you&#39;ll get a dialog message saying that some apps require Google Play Services which &quot;your device does not support.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1078. &amp;nbsp; Then it goes ahead to run the app just fine because the support files are actually present as add-ons.&lt;br /&gt;
  1079. &lt;br /&gt;
  1080. &amp;nbsp; I can write more on this if a few people are interested but I don&#39;t recommend it for most Kindle owners, whose attraction to the Amazon tablets are their many unique and unususal features along with ease of use.  &lt;br /&gt;
  1081. &lt;br /&gt;
  1082. &amp;nbsp; While there is NO rooting and there are NO Kindle software modifications involved, I did see how many people missed steps from the article and wound up with Google Play Services error messages they can&#39;t disable once they just gave up and removed what they could.&lt;br /&gt;
  1083. &amp;nbsp; Amazon would not want to support customers placing themselves in that predicament. &amp;nbsp;Most Kindle owners wanting this kind of thing should get a cheap pure-Android tablet to supplement the Fire tablets that have so many other useful features. &amp;nbsp; &lt;br /&gt;
  1084. &lt;br /&gt;
  1085. I&#39;m mentioning this on the non-Amazon apps page only so that interested readers have an idea what -is- possible without rooting but which can still be problematical for people not used to working with files and installs that have to be done in the right order.&lt;br /&gt;

Step-by-Step guide on How to Play Flash video on Flash-intensive websites. Several tips on streaming video.  Large update 1/9/15, smaller update 12/22/15</title><description>&lt;br /&gt;
  1111. &lt;img align=&quot;left&quot; height=&quot;254&quot; hspace=&quot;10&quot; src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/myoutube-quality-picklist.jpg&quot; width=&quot;388&quot; /&gt;&lt;b&gt;How to install flash to play flash videos on Kindle Fire HDX/HD and Fire tablets (released 2013-2015) for websites using Flash video but not offering the alternative HTML5 method after Adobe stopped active support of Flash on mobile devices&lt;/b&gt;  &lt;br /&gt;
  1112. &lt;br /&gt;
  1113. &amp;nbsp; As of January 2015, we had a quite reliable workaround now for the &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Year 2013-2014&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; Kindle Fire HDX and HD tablets and also for later pure Android devices. &amp;nbsp;This should also work with the &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Year 2015&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; Fire tablets. &amp;nbsp;I spent quite a bit of time testing various browser versions with various Flash player files recommended and settled on one combination that worked on all the websites I&#39;d found challenging to most in the past. &lt;br clear=&quot;left&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1114. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; * (See &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;EARLIER&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; guide &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwt1022&quot; target=_blank&gt;for Year 2012&lt;/a&gt; Kindle Fire tablets.) *&lt;br /&gt;
  1115. &lt;br /&gt;
  1116. &lt;b&gt;WORKAROUND and &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Step-by-Step GUIDE&lt;/font&gt; to play Flash video on Year 2013-2014 Kindle Fire tablets and Year 2015 Fire tablets for sites that need the Flash-player workaround&lt;/b&gt; to function as expected (show videos, do customized Flash routines).&lt;br /&gt;
  1117. &amp;nbsp; &lt;i&gt;Originally posted Dec 29, 2014 - revised Jan. 9, 2015 for clarity and Dec. 22, 2015 to add a changed setting.&lt;/i&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1118. &lt;br /&gt;
  1119. &amp;nbsp; The following files have been tested with a Yr2013 Kindle Fire HDX and are for devices that use &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;forms of Android versions 4.x and later&lt;/font&gt;.  &lt;!-- &amp;nbsp; &lt;font size=1&gt;(Since even Yr2012 Kindle Fire tablets (the 1st Generation Kindle Fire HD 7&quot; and Kindle Fire HD 8.9&quot;. models ALSO use an operating system (&quot;OS&quot;) based on Android 4.0.3 and above, these later files MIGHT work with the older Kindle Fires as well. BUT where the &lt;i&gt;older files DO work already&lt;/i&gt; for the Yr 2012 models, there&#39;s &lt;b&gt;NO&lt;/b&gt; reason to use this method that uses newer files made to solve problems on tablets with &lt;i&gt;later&lt;/i&gt; Android OS versions - they could introduce problems. &lt;/font&gt; --&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1120. &amp;nbsp; Yr2011 Kindle Fire had Adobe Flash support built in, before Adobe dropped Flash support on mobile devices.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1121. &lt;br /&gt;
  1122. &amp;nbsp; These are methods of access for those who are bent on watching Flash Video or fancy Flash routines on photography and music-playing sites, etc., which make movement-oriented viewing difficult to do with today&#39;s tablets (ever since Adobe stopped support of Flash on mobile devices 2-3 years ago).&lt;br /&gt;
  1123. &lt;br /&gt;
  1124. &lt;b&gt;Amazon&#39;s Instant Video streaming library&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1125. &amp;nbsp; Note that &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/recentprimevideo&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon Instant Video streaming&lt;/a&gt; works just fine with the Kindle Fire Silk web browser of course, and this feature offers a lot of video-viewing (40,000+ videos viewable at no added cost for Prime Shipping program members), and Amazon now has, increasingly, &quot;exclusives&quot; on popular video content and has worked on video-viewing compatibility with the larger popular websites. &amp;nbsp;I use the default Silk web browser most of the time, as a result, and use the Flash combo recommended here for video that Amazon&#39;s browser can&#39;t display yet.&lt;br /&gt;
  1126. &lt;br /&gt;
  1127. &lt;b&gt;For the later tablets released Fall 2013-2015&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1128. &amp;nbsp; Three files are needed and linked below, but FIRST do the following:&lt;br /&gt;
  1129. This combo of files works on the &lt;b&gt;Yr 2013 devices and after&lt;/b&gt;, starting with Kindle Fire HD 7 (2nd Gen), Kindle Fire HDX (1st Gen) tablets, and they should work with the Yr 2014-2015 Fire tablets (see &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwpkindles&quot; target=_blank&gt;Current models listing&lt;/a&gt;.) &amp;nbsp;I&#39;d love to get feedback on how it goes with the tablet model you&#39;re using for this.&lt;br /&gt;
  1130. &lt;br /&gt;
  1131. STEPS: &lt;blockquote&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt; Go to the &#39;Home&#39; screen.&lt;/li&gt;
  1132. &lt;li&gt; Swipe down (lightly pressing and pulling down) from the top of the screen.&lt;/li&gt;
  1133. &lt;li&gt; That gets you the top row of moreo popular options to set.&lt;/li&gt;
  1134. &lt;li&gt; Tap on &quot;More&quot; or &quot;Settings&quot; wheel (depending on the model) at the top right.&lt;/li&gt;
  1135. &lt;li&gt; Go down the &lt;i&gt;Settings&lt;/i&gt; list to &quot;Applications&quot; and tap on that.&lt;br /&gt;
  1136. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;For Year 2015 tablets&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;, Select &quot;&lt;b&gt;Security&lt;/b&gt;&quot; rather than &quot;Applications.&quot; &lt;/li&gt;
  1137. &lt;li&gt;&quot;Apps from Unknown Sources&quot; is the first option.&lt;br /&gt;
  1138. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; Turn ON &quot;Allow Installation of applications not from Appstore.&quot;&lt;/li&gt;
  1139. &lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1140. Installation files have names that end in &quot;.apk&quot; ...&lt;br /&gt;
  1141. &lt;br /&gt;
  1142. Then &lt;b&gt;download and tap to install&lt;/b&gt;, to your Yr 2013 or later tablet, the files at the following links&lt;br /&gt;
  1143. &amp;nbsp; (the first one is a popular Android tablet file manager, if you don&#39;t already have it):&lt;br /&gt;
  1144. &lt;blockquote&gt;&lt;ol&gt;&lt;li&gt; &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/es-file-explorer&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;img align=&quot;right&quot; height=&quot;115&quot; hspace=&quot;10&quot; src=&quot;http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71lC-dgk7YL._AA115_.png&quot; vspace=&quot;7&quot; width=&quot;115&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;the free file manager app, &lt;i&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/es-file-explorer&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;ES File Explorer&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/i&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  1145. &lt;br /&gt;
  1146. &amp;nbsp; [&lt;b&gt;&lt;font size=1&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;An EASIER alternative&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; file-manager app for just installing app files (*.apk files) is &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/easyinstaller&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;b&gt;Easy Installer&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt;, which does a search for install-files on your tablet and then shows them to you so that you can just choose which one to install without searching in file folders.&lt;br /&gt;
  1147. &lt;br /&gt;
  1148. &amp;nbsp;  The &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;first time&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; you use Easy Installer -- be sure to tap its top-right Menu: (3 vertically-aligned squares)&lt;br /&gt;
  1149. &amp;nbsp; Tap on &#39;Setting&#39; and &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;check&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; the &#39;&lt;i&gt;Scan Hidden Directories&lt;/i&gt;&#39; box so that it can find hidden apk files.&lt;br /&gt;
  1150. &lt;br /&gt;
  1151. &lt;b&gt;For an easier experience&lt;/b&gt; when just installing new apps downloaded from non-Amazon stores, use THIS file manager instead of ES Explorer where that is mentioned here.]&lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1152. &lt;br /&gt;
  1153. Most recommend ES Explorer, which drops files into the usual &quot;Download&quot; folder, because you can control a lot more in connection with your files if you use it regularly, but it can be more than some care to see for just an app-install job. I use the Easy Installer for app-installs and ES Explorer for other file management functions.&lt;br /&gt;
  1154. &lt;br /&gt;
  1155. &lt;/li&gt;
  1156. &lt;li&gt; Dolphin&#39;s own &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/dolphin-adobeflashapk&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;b&gt;http://dolphin.com/lab/en&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; page has  the specific Adobe Flash file offered by them. &amp;nbsp;This Adobe Flash player file was put together by &lt;i&gt;surviveland&lt;/i&gt; (to work with later Android-based tablets) at XDA forums and it&#39;s explained there (in a &lt;a href=&quot;http://forum.xda-developers.com/google-nexus-5/help/guide-how-to-play-flash-video-android-4-t2548001&quot; target=_blank&gt;long, complex thread&lt;/a&gt; most will not want to read). &lt;br /&gt;
  1157. &lt;br /&gt;
  1158. &amp;nbsp; You should install this Flash file before running the Dolphin browser file that comes next. &lt;br /&gt;
  1159. &lt;br /&gt;
  1160. &amp;nbsp; The file is named &lt;font size=1&gt;&quot;install_flash_player_ics.apk&quot;&lt;/font&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  1161. &lt;br /&gt;
  1162. &amp;nbsp; And: &lt;br clear=&quot;right&quot;&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
  1163. &lt;li&gt; Here&#39;s a link to the file for &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/dolphin-11-3-4&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;b&gt;Dolphin browser&lt;/b&gt; version 11.3.4&lt;/a&gt; for those who can&#39;t access &lt;i&gt;Google play&lt;/i&gt; directly. &amp;nbsp;The file is at 1mobile (most who read this blog will already have the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/1mobilecom-apps&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;1mobile appstore app&lt;/a&gt;, which you use in the same way you use the Amazon appstore), and you can go there ON the Kindle Fire tablet app, Search for &quot;dolphin browser&quot; and direct download it, and it&#39;ll be installed for you. &amp;nbsp;This is easier than doing it at other sites which require a manual install. &amp;nbsp;This is the same file that is at GooglePlay today, with Jetpack (which helps with Flash) built in.&lt;br /&gt;
  1164. &lt;br /&gt;
  1165. &amp;nbsp; &lt;font size=1&gt;(But, for others, here&#39;s an ALTERNATE link for those who&#39;d rather download the file from &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/dolphinbrowsers&quot; target=_blank&gt;Dolphin&#39;s own site&lt;/a&gt;, offering Dolphin for Android in an earlier version than the one at GooglePlay. &amp;nbsp;If the Dolphin site downloads a version that does not have &quot;Jetpack&quot; built in, then you would need to also download Jetpack, which is also on that page, separately, and install both files. &amp;nbsp;Dolphin also offers a beta version there.) &amp;nbsp; but 1mobile&#39;s file above is MUCH easier to get and autoinstall, and Jetpack is built into it.&lt;/font&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1166. &lt;br /&gt;
  1167. &amp;nbsp; &lt;i&gt;Google play&lt;/i&gt; says that the Dolphin version number varies with the device. v11.3.4 works on my Yr2013 Kindle Fire HDX tablet and should work on the Yr2013-2014 HD ones also.&lt;br /&gt;
  1168. &lt;br /&gt;
  1169. &amp;nbsp; &lt;font size=1&gt;(For Nexus N9 users, Dolphin told a user Dec. 23, 2014&lt;br /&gt;
  1170. &amp;nbsp; &quot;&lt;i&gt;Dolphin does not support Flash in Nexus 9 for now. &amp;nbsp;Nexus 9 is with the 64-bit processor. We are working on this issue.?&lt;/i&gt;&quot;&lt;/font&gt;  &lt;/li&gt;
  1171. &lt;/ol&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1172. &amp;nbsp; When you receive notification that the Adobe Flash Player is downloaded, run &lt;b&gt;either&lt;/b&gt; the ES File Explorer (files will be in the &quot;Download&quot; folder usually) &lt;b&gt;OR&lt;/b&gt; the Easy Installer app to find and install it. &lt;br /&gt;
  1173. &amp;nbsp; Tap the filename to install the file (in both cases). &lt;/li&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1174. &lt;br /&gt;
  1175. &lt;br /&gt;
  1176. &lt;br /&gt;
  1177. &lt;br /&gt;
  1178. &lt;br /&gt;
  1179. &lt;br /&gt;
  1180. &lt;b&gt;Dolphin HD Browser settings&lt;/b&gt; &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;IMPORTANT&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1181. &lt;blockquote&gt;When you&#39;ve launched the Dolphin browser, this 11.3.4 version&#39;s menu is the Dolphin image at top right (rather than the usual washboard rectangle). &amp;nbsp;Tap it to bring up several options. &lt;ol&gt;&lt;li&gt; Tap on &quot;&lt;b&gt;Settings&lt;/b&gt;&quot; at the bottom left of the opened menu).&lt;br /&gt;
  1182. &lt;/li&gt;
  1183. &lt;li&gt; Near the top of the list is &quot;&lt;b&gt;Dolphin Jetpack&lt;/b&gt; - it helps with Flash and is now &lt;b&gt;built-in&lt;/b&gt; and you should be sure to turn it ON, with a checkmark at the left against a green background. &lt;/li&gt;
  1184. &lt;li&gt; Go down to &quot;&lt;b&gt;Web Content&lt;/b&gt;&quot; and tap that. &lt;/li&gt;
  1185. &lt;li&gt; Then tap &quot;&lt;b&gt;Flash Player&lt;/b&gt;&quot; -- the choices are:&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt; &lt;b&gt;Always on&lt;/b&gt; &amp;nbsp;(Videos will auto-run - easiest but it&#39;ll slow down some page loads and sometimes Flash routines will cause crashes, one reason Steve Jobs hated it). &amp;nbsp;I use this one so I don&#39;t have to turn it on when needed.&lt;br /&gt;
  1186. &lt;/li&gt;
  1187. &lt;li&gt; &lt;b&gt;On Demand&lt;/b&gt; &amp;nbsp;That means you&#39;d need to do an extra tap to start it when something isn&#39;t running because you didn&#39;t want it to always run.&lt;br /&gt;
  1188. &lt;/li&gt;
  1189. &lt;li&gt;&lt;b&gt;Off&lt;/b&gt; &amp;nbsp;(I see no reason to use this option.) &lt;/li&gt;
  1190. &lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/li&gt;
  1191. &lt;li&gt;Other settings - ones I use, in case you wonder what might work:&lt;br /&gt;
  1192. &amp;nbsp; . Auto-fit Pages: ON&lt;br /&gt;
  1193. &amp;nbsp; . Default Zoom: 200% (Close up)&lt;br /&gt;
  1194. &amp;nbsp; . Open Pages in Overview: ON &lt;br /&gt;
  1195. &lt;/li&gt;
  1196. &lt;li&gt;ALSO, make sure &lt;b&gt;&lt;i&gt;Javascript&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/b&gt; setting, just below Flash, is On or Enabled.&lt;/li&gt;
  1197. &lt;/ol&gt;&lt;b&gt;Important &lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;additional Dolphin setting&lt;/span&gt;:&lt;/b&gt; (that you can change back and forth)&lt;br /&gt;
  1198. On the main settings page, &lt;b&gt;&lt;i&gt;Customization&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/b&gt; subsetting has, in FIRST spot, &quot;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;User Agent&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;.&quot;  &amp;nbsp; I tend to use &quot;&lt;b&gt;Desktop&lt;/b&gt;&quot; there because I dislike oversimplified mobile-device optimized pages, which are built for small smartphones. AND some TV broadcast sites as well as medici.tv (live and archived classical concerts) will run ONLY if they think you are on a desktop. &amp;nbsp;If they see you&#39;re an Android device :-), they will insist you get a mobile app that is difficult for Kindle tablet users to get from Google play.  &lt;br /&gt;
  1199. &amp;nbsp; Youtube may run a bit smoother if you choose &#39;Android&#39; setting instead, but I don&#39;t see much of a difference. Right now I can use &#39;Desktop&#39; setting and see the normal youtube instead of being sent to the mobile version of youtube.&lt;br /&gt;
  1200. &lt;br /&gt;
  1201. &amp;nbsp; Again, SOME TV video pages will actually not allow videos to run on &lt;b&gt;Android&lt;/b&gt; devices but will allow them to run for &quot;Desktop&quot; devices or on &lt;b&gt;iPads&lt;/b&gt;.  &amp;nbsp;This is where you can camouflage your device as a a &#39;Desktop&#39; or iPad &amp;nbsp;:-) &amp;nbsp; &lt;br /&gt;
  1202. &lt;b&gt;&amp;nbsp; Remember to change it back&lt;/b&gt; when needing to use the Android setting though.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1203. Then, after installing the app files and making sure that the Flash setting is set to run Flash either Always or On Demand, you&#39;ll be able to switch to the Dolphin HD browser app (if using Amazon&#39;s &lt;i&gt;Silk&lt;/i&gt; browser by default) when needing to see a video requiring Flash. &lt;br /&gt;
  1204. &lt;br /&gt;
  1205. &lt;b&gt;The usual DISCLAIMER&lt;/b&gt; for adding files for added functionality&lt;br /&gt;
  1206. &amp;nbsp; As with the steps for the past two years, these are files that are for requested workarounds based on various findings by Android experts at &lt;a href=&quot;http://forum.xda-developers.com/&quot; target=_blank&gt;XDA Developers Community Forums&lt;/a&gt; and would be considered when really wanting to view Flash video that is not working for you on some favorite sites with Amazon&#39;s built-in &quot;Silk&quot; web browser (which is ultra capable these days).&lt;br /&gt;
  1207. &amp;nbsp; Also, guides to add install files to get a missing function -- in this case, to allow the playing of Flash almost anywhere -- should be used mainly by those familiar with basic File Manager utilities (this applies to normal Windows, Macs, and Android file-manager utilities).&lt;br /&gt;
  1208. &lt;br /&gt;
  1209. &amp;nbsp; There are &lt;b&gt;NO&lt;/b&gt; software modifications and &lt;b&gt;NO&lt;/b&gt; risky &quot;Rooting&quot; involved. &amp;nbsp;However, no guarantee is made, of course, that they&#39;ll function ideally on your specific device on all flash-video sites, although this type of workaround for the older models has been used successfully &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwt1022#comments&quot; target=_blank&gt;for over two years now&lt;/a&gt; (see comments) and this file combo is working really well for me on the HDX on almost all Flash-video pages.&lt;br /&gt;
  1210. &amp;nbsp;The degree of success of this workaround on your specific device may depend on sufficient storage space remaining, memory (do this from a fresh power-up), and healthy hardware.&lt;br /&gt;
  1211. &lt;br /&gt;
  1212. &lt;br /&gt;
  1213. &lt;b&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;Troubleshooting&lt;/span&gt;. &amp;nbsp; Using Restarts&lt;/b&gt; - I had an HD Youtube video close on me one night in October 2012 after a few seconds. &amp;nbsp;Twice, after I&#39;d been running the browser with many tabs open.   &amp;nbsp; When quite a bit has been run on a tablet, sometimes memory gets fragmented and there&#39;s not enough to hold what&#39;s needed in &#39;contiguous&#39; mode and then an app will close.  &lt;br /&gt;
  1214. &lt;br /&gt;
  1215. &amp;nbsp;In case that might be the reason, I just powered off the device from the Home page, which will clean up the memory the same way our computers do upon power-off or restart. &amp;nbsp;After doing that, I had no problems with that same 9-minute Youtube High Definition video and played it full-screen a few times, using the Dolphin browser and the Adobe Flash Player file.&lt;br /&gt;
  1216. &lt;br /&gt;
  1217. &lt;br /&gt;
  1218. &lt;b&gt;Other app stores that are recommended when Amazon does not have a particular app&lt;/b&gt;  &amp;nbsp; Besides &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/1mobilecom-apps&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;1mobile.com&lt;/a&gt;, popular ones are androiddrawer.com, m.getjar.com, slideme.org, handango.com, and others. &amp;nbsp;As with any appstore, you can search for an app and download it to the tablet. &amp;nbsp; This is because Amazon has always allowed the option of installing appication files &quot;from unknown sources&quot; despite what you&#39;ll read on large tech sites (for reasons I don&#39;t understand, since they will spend a lot of space talking about &#39;rooting&#39; the tablets or doing &#39;modifications&#39; on them and these workarounds require none of that. &amp;nbsp;Just a checkmark on a box.&lt;br /&gt;
  1219. &lt;br /&gt;
  1220. I always recommend though that people &lt;b&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;wait a few days before getting apps from any other sites&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;, to see if anyone is having problems with malware (even at Google Play market, when Google allows access, but Google doesn&#39;t acknowledge Kindle Fire devices). &amp;nbsp;Google doesn&#39;t take as much time to vet apps as Amazon does, to test for both malware or incompatability.&lt;br /&gt;
  1221. &lt;br /&gt;
  1222. &amp;nbsp; Amazon&#39;s appstore has finally been growing fast the last year. &amp;nbsp; Of course, if Amazon carries the app, it&#39;s definitely best to get it from Amazon because &lt;b&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;Amazon does a strong vetting of the apps they offer&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt; and because it&#39;s the way they make revenue from (now the highest-quality hardware) tablets sold at closer to cost.&lt;br /&gt;
  1223. &amp;nbsp; They also keep for you a copy of each Amazon appstore app you download, in your Amazon Cloud area, which is useful when you are getting another Kindle tablet or if you just need to re-install the file.  &amp;nbsp;I think it&#39;s important to support the Amazon Android appstore, but I also think it&#39;s important that Amazon make more good and updated apps available to us at a faster pace, and maybe they should have a suggestion box for the more popular requests&lt;br /&gt;
  1224. &lt;br /&gt;
  1225. &lt;br /&gt;
  1226. &lt;b&gt;Amazon Prime Instant Video setting needing a change for tablet-viewing&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1227. &lt;b&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;NOTE&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt; - The April 26 2014 blog update added info on a setting for those &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;viewing Amazon Prime Instant Video on tablets or phones&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; and who, for some reason, don&#39;t see a Flash option on their tablet screens.&lt;br /&gt;
  1228. &lt;br /&gt;
  1229. &amp;nbsp; The &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/instantvideowebplayersetting&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;Amazon Instant Video setting for Web Player Preferences&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; if viewing on mobile devices should be &lt;b&gt;set to &quot;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Adobe Flash&lt;/font&gt;&quot;&lt;/b&gt; rather than &quot;Silverlight,: which is for desktop computers.&lt;br /&gt;
  1230. &amp;nbsp; I imagine that Kindle Fire tablets are optimized for Amazon&#39;s own Instant Video feature or vice versa.&lt;br /&gt;
  1231. &lt;br /&gt;
  1232. &lt;br /&gt;
  1233. &lt;b&gt;Another browser, &quot;Puffin&quot; can run flash video on websites - far less smooth and doesn&#39;t play Flash during evening hours&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1234. &lt;b&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.1mobile.com/puffin-web-browser-free-327398.html&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Puffin Free Browser&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/b&gt;. &amp;nbsp;However, again, Puffin&#39;s intro cautions that it&#39;s limited to daytime use. &lt;br /&gt;
  1235. &amp;nbsp; &quot;Puffin Free is the free version of Puffin family, and supports Adobe Flash during the daytime everyday (It usually starts from 8 am to 4 pm, but the duration is subject to change without prior notice).&quot;  Have left in this info because some recommend Puffin for simplicity and because it does work with Flash when the sun is shining -- and because I think this daytime allowance of Flash for the free version is so odd. &amp;nbsp;So, I&#39;ve included it for the record, although its display tends to be lower-resolution than with the other browsers. &amp;nbsp;I haven&#39;t run across the paid-app version yet.&lt;br /&gt;
  1236. &lt;br /&gt;
  1237. &lt;b&gt;Flashfox&lt;/b&gt; promises Flash support but crashes on some sites;&lt;br /&gt;
  1238. &lt;br /&gt;
  1239. &lt;br /&gt;
  1240. &lt;b&gt;Large popular video sites on which Amazon&#39;s &lt;i&gt;Silk&lt;/i&gt; web browser does work currently&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1241. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Youtube&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1242. &lt;b&gt;Amazon&#39;s own default &lt;i&gt;Silk&lt;/i&gt; browser&lt;/b&gt; currently handles Youtube well by taking you to the mobile version of that site, showing you a small version of the video selected from a search and, when you click on one, shows you a full screen version of it in decent quality w/o your needing to change (via a long-press) the Youtube video gear-wheel setting at the right-bottom of a video, to change the video quality. &amp;nbsp;Its Silk tablet browser can no longer view NBC&#39;s full episodes on the tablets though.&lt;br /&gt;
  1243. &lt;br /&gt;
  1244. &amp;nbsp; Youtube&#39;s mobile area was completely rewritten by Youtube to use HTML5 rather than Flash and in the recent past sometimes had a somewhat smaller selection of videos, but they&#39;re about the same now. &amp;nbsp;Amazon works with the HTML5 via their new experimental Flash-replacement streamer, described further below.&lt;br /&gt;
  1245. &lt;br /&gt;
  1246. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Acorn.tv&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1247. Silk CAN handle Acorn.TV (British TV shows) well in &#39;Automatic&#39; reading-view setting. &lt;br /&gt;
  1248. With the Flash file recommended here, it is more reliable. &amp;nbsp;but that file is not necessary for the &#39;mobile&#39; reading-view setting, though the &#39;automatic&#39; setting is recommended.&lt;br /&gt;
  1249. &lt;br /&gt;
  1250. &amp;nbsp; The current &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/chromebeta-jan2015&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;i&gt;Chrome Beta&lt;/i&gt; browser&lt;/a&gt; at 1mobile appstore also runs acorn.tv with the current recommended Flash file, as long as you don&#39;t click the Chrone browser menu setting for &quot;Request desktop site. &amp;nbsp;Oddly, the Dolphin combo recommended here does not run acorn.tv videos.  &lt;br /&gt;
  1251. &lt;br /&gt;
  1252. &lt;br /&gt;
  1253. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;NOTE: &lt;/b&gt; The general quality of streaming will be affected by the speed of your Internet connection. &lt;br /&gt;
  1254. &amp;nbsp; Providers of DSL home Internet access usually use a default, first-tier lower speed that&#39;s often about 1/6th the speed of cablemodem speeds, so if you love to watch Internet streamed material via WiFi network connections in your home, I do recommend cablemodem access like Comcast&#39;s.&lt;br /&gt;
  1255. &lt;a name=&quot;hbogo&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1256. &lt;br /&gt;
  1257. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Video or TV broadcast Apps already carried at Amazon&#39;s appstore:&lt;/b&gt;  &lt;br /&gt;
  1258. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/watchabc-app&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;WatchABC&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/b&gt;, which includes viewing of LIVE ABC programs rather than just after the fact, is often a boon but is now much less stable than earlier this year.  Too many ads too. &amp;nbsp;CBS app is now available at Amazon but I think full episodes require a 5-day delay before they can be shown. &amp;nbsp;Let me know if that&#39;s changed. (No time to test that as I want to get this update up.) &lt;br /&gt;
  1259. &lt;br /&gt;
  1260. &amp;nbsp; NBC&#39;s full episodes are available only on laptops or desktops currently, BUT &lt;b&gt;Dolphin&lt;/b&gt; CAN show these on your Kindle File tablet when (as explained above) you set the &quot;User Agent&quot; to Desktop. &amp;nbsp;I tend to leave it at that setting, and I just used Dolphin to semi-watch a Dateline hour on NBC.&lt;br /&gt;
  1261. &lt;br /&gt;
  1262. &amp;nbsp; Amazon&#39;s appstore also carries &lt;b&gt;PBS&lt;/b&gt;, &lt;b&gt;Smithsonian TV&lt;/b&gt; apps, and other TV apps. &amp;nbsp;If you Search the Amazon store for &quot;TV&quot; you&#39;ll also see apps for &lt;i&gt;Discovery; History; WatchESPN; RAI;&lt;/i&gt; and several others. PBS&#39;s app is fantastic. &amp;nbsp;So is Smithsonian but there are fewer full hour shows on it.&lt;br /&gt;
  1263. &lt;br /&gt;
  1264. &amp;nbsp; And then there&#39;s always &lt;b&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazon-instantvideo-help&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon Instant Video viewing&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/b&gt;, which includes &lt;i&gt;downloadable&lt;/i&gt; files for watching offline, and Amazon keeps adding exclusive material on that feature while providing optional X-Ray background info on actors in the scene you&#39;re watching.&lt;br /&gt;
  1265. &lt;br /&gt;
  1266. &amp;nbsp; Remember to be sure to use (or change) the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/instantvideowebplayersetting&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;Amazon Instant Video setting for Web Player Preferences&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; because when viewing on &lt;b&gt;tablets&lt;/b&gt;, this should be &lt;b&gt;set to &quot;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Adobe Flash&lt;/font&gt;&quot;&lt;/b&gt; rather than &quot;Silverlight, which is for desktop computers.&lt;br /&gt;
  1267. &lt;br /&gt;
  1268. &lt;b&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;NOTE: &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt; - Amazon&#39;s HDX tablets provide what has been described by major tech-site reviewers as among the fastest and smoothest experience on tablets today. &amp;nbsp;If multmedia files are your focus and you want them accessible on your device to play offline, &lt;i&gt;get a device with more storage than 16 GB&lt;/i&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1269. &lt;br /&gt;
  1270. &amp;nbsp; I didn&#39;t want to pay a few hundred dollars for a multimedia tablet (also, magazines are huge) and wind up feeling constrained, since I also have a lot of photos on mine, so I got the 64GB one and love the freedom from worrying about space, Cloud or no Cloud.&lt;br /&gt;
  1271. &amp;nbsp; I think of it as a built-in SD card space. &amp;nbsp;Still, a 32GB tablet will be enough for many users.&lt;br /&gt;
  1272. &lt;br /&gt;
  1273. When shopping different makers and models and analyzing costs, note that a certain key competing tablet will cost an additional $100 to get to each higher level of storage space - to 32 and to 64GB -  and that tablet series does not support Flash.&lt;br /&gt;
  1274. &lt;br /&gt;
  1275. &amp;nbsp; Many of us are able to view, using Amazon&#39;s own default &lt;i&gt;Silk&lt;/i&gt; web browser, some of the main Flash-playing sites, even for network TV full episodes now, as mentioned, as Kindle Team has been working on Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/sviewer&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;b&gt;Experimental Streaming Viewer&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; which works with a limited number of sites, but they are large, popular ones, and Amazon is expanding the number of websites that will be able to work with it. &lt;br /&gt;
  1276. &lt;br /&gt;
  1277. &amp;nbsp; Here&#39;s my earlier &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/esv-intro&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;introduction to the Experimental Streaming Viewer&lt;/a&gt;, with some initial tips that will help, though there may be some added web-browser setting changes needed via the browser menu for some.&lt;br /&gt;
  1278. &amp;nbsp; A &lt;b&gt;KEY&lt;/b&gt; step is to enable &quot;Accelerate page loading&quot; setting in the Silk web browser menu (it&#39;s now the default setting on the HDX tablets), which automatically turns &#39;ON&#39; the Advenced Setting of &quot;Prompt for experimental streaming viewer.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1279. &lt;br /&gt;
  1280. &lt;b&gt;Back to the Google-owned Youtube:&lt;/b&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  1281. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;A brief history&lt;/b&gt; of THAT  dilemma brought on by Adobe&#39;s dropping of Flash support and explanation for the workaround has been &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kw-adobe-flash-history&quot; target=_blank&gt;moved to its own page&lt;/a&gt; to shorten this blog entry. &lt;!--This article was so long that the RSS feed stopped working in Nov 2013.--&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1282. &lt;br /&gt;
  1283. &amp;nbsp; Amazon has been able to improve Experimental Streaming Viewer so that Youtube videos and many other websites using Flash can be viewed on the Silk web browser without any special work on the part of the use. &amp;nbsp;As mentioned earlier, Amazon uses the mobile version of youtube.. &lt;br /&gt;
  1284. &lt;br /&gt;
  1285. &amp;nbsp; When using &lt;b&gt;Silk browser&lt;/b&gt; rather than Dolphin, look at Silk browser&#39;s web menu Settings options and &lt;b&gt;check the box&lt;/b&gt; to use the experimental feature if you want the browser to try to to view Flash video on a website.&lt;br /&gt;
  1286. &lt;br /&gt;

  1317. &lt;table width=100% border=1 cellpadding=&quot;10&quot;&gt;&lt;tr&gt;&lt;td width=50% align=&quot;center&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.pbase.com/andrys/image/161947979&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/nepal-fuel-blockade-1-t.jpg&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/td&gt; &lt;td width=50%&gt;This is an example of using voice-dictation on a Facebook post:&lt;br /&gt;
  1318. &lt;br /&gt;
  1319. Click on the first screenshot to see where the microphone icon is. &amp;nbsp;The second one shows the screen during dictation, and the 3rd one shows the completed comment to Facebook.&lt;/td&gt;&lt;/tr&gt;
  1320. &lt;td align=&quot;center&quot; cellpadding=&quot;7&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.pbase.com/andrys/image/161947980&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/nepal-fuel-blockade-2-t.jpg&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/td&gt; &lt;td align=&quot;center&quot;&gt;&lt;a  href=&quot;http://www.pbase.com/andrys/image/161947981&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/nepal-fuel-blockade-3-t.jpg&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/td&gt; &lt;/tr&gt;
  1321. &lt;/table&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1322. &lt;br /&gt;
  1323. &lt;b&gt;Kindle Fire&#39;s Built-in Voice Dictation for tablets with Fire OS v3.1&lt;/b&gt; (See &lt;a href=&quot;#upd&quot;&gt;Updated entry&lt;/a&gt; at bottom.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1324. This capability is available, per &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/Kindletabletkeyboard&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon&#39;s Language and Keyboard Display help page&lt;/a&gt; on the following Amazon tablets:&lt;br /&gt;
  1325. &amp;nbsp; &lt;i&gt; &quot;For Kindle Fire HDX (3rd Generation), Fire HD (4th Generation), or Fire HDX 8.9 (4th Generation) devices, tap the microphone icon on your keyboard to use your voice to dictate text instead of typing.&quot;&lt;/i&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1326. &lt;br /&gt;
  1327. &amp;nbsp; The Fire HD 4th generation would be the ones released in Year 2014 (HD 6&quot; and HD 7&quot; that year, still current in Year 2015).&lt;br /&gt;
  1328. &amp;nbsp; For example, the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kfire-hd&quot; target=_blank&gt;lowest-cost Fire HD model&lt;/a&gt; has it, as does the Year 2014 HD 7 tablet you might have, though that one doesn&#39;t show in current tablet offerings.&lt;br /&gt;
  1329. &lt;br /&gt;
  1330. The thumbnail photos above lead to larger photos for more readability. &amp;nbsp;These screenshots are from a session using the built-in voice-dictation (or speech-to-text] feature to reply on Facebook to a post. &amp;nbsp;(I&#39;m using a post from &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/wildtiger-org-remote-area-aid&quot; target=_blank&gt;Wildtiger Org&#39;s Jack Kinross&lt;/a&gt; in connection with their Remote Area Aid for disaster relief in Nepal. &amp;nbsp;This is a photo he took of a woman carrying wood from recently cut-down trees to her home because of the now two-month-long &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/nepal-fuel-blockade&quot; target=_blank&gt;Nepal Fuel Blockade&lt;/a&gt;, which prevents receipt of fuel (for cooking and transportation) and medical supplies as well as health workers for areas of Nepal that need it). &amp;nbsp;The full photo by Jack Kinross can be viewed &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.pbase.com/andrys/image/161954312&quot; target=_blank&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1331. &amp;nbsp; Today, a report by Unicef that a &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/nepal-children-winter-2015&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;i&gt;Shortage of essential supplies threatens millions of children this winter in Nepal&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt; goes ignored while the mainstream news outlets ignore that story. &amp;nbsp;(&quot;200,000 families affected by the tremors are still living in temporary shelters, at an altitude above 1,500 metres&quot;) facing winter without fuel for food and transport and no medical supplies due to the mentioned blockade there.) &lt;br /&gt;
  1332. &lt;br /&gt;
  1333. &amp;nbsp; The first screenshot shows the voice-dictation microphone at bottom left of the keyboard; the second one shows the screen interface during the actual voice dictation with a dotted circle around the microphone and &quot;Done&quot; to be tapped once you&#39;ve finished your dictated comment. &amp;nbsp;The third one shows the comment as it appears before you press the &lt;i&gt;Enter&lt;/i&gt; key on the keyboard to submit the comment.&lt;br /&gt;
  1334. &lt;br /&gt;
  1335. According to an Amazon press release, this &quot;&lt;i&gt;Voice dictation converts your speech to text—available in all languages when online; offline support available in US English.&lt;/i&gt;.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1336. &lt;br /&gt;
  1337. &amp;nbsp; (I haven&#39;t confirmed that we can use the feature offline when using US English, since my WiFi is always on when I&#39;m working with it. &amp;nbsp;Let us know what your experience is with that.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1338. &lt;br /&gt;
  1339. &lt;b&gt;Here&#39;s a list of some frequently used voice commands&lt;br /&gt;
  1340. &amp;nbsp and some numerical items the dictation-feature understands: &lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1341. &amp;nbsp; (SOME of the may not work in the UK-English version.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1342. • “Period” – [ . ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1343. • “Comma” – [ , ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1344. • “Exclamation mark” – [ ! ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1345. • &quot;Exclamation point&quot; - [ ! ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1346. • &quot;New line&quot; &lt;br /&gt;
  1347. • &quot;New paragraph&quot; &lt;br /&gt;
  1348. • “Open bracket(s)” – [ [ ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1349. • &quot;Closed bracket(s)&quot; - [ ] ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1350. • &quot;Open parentheses&quot; - [ ( ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1351. • &quot;Closed parentheses&quot; - [ ) ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1352. • &quot;dash&quot; - [--] {&quot;The weather -- quite cold -- requires a coat.&quot;}&lt;br /&gt;
  1353. • “Nine Euros fifty” – [ 9.50 EUR ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1354. • “Half past nine” – [ 9:30 ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1355. • &quot;Eight fifty nine AM&quot; - [ 8:59 AM ]&lt;br /&gt;
  1356. • “Thirteen forty five” – [13:45]&lt;br /&gt;
  1357. • “Twelve hyphen 3&quot; - [12-3] {&quot;The Giants won 12-3.&quot;}&lt;br /&gt;
  1358. &lt;br /&gt;
  1359. If the voice-dictation IS based on Nuance&#39;s &quot;Dragon&quot; capabilities, some have said that an &quot;utterance&quot; is limited to 30 seconds, but I&#39;ve been able to talk on and on for well over a minute without a break and it continues and is very accurate. &amp;nbsp;When I stopped, it waited for me for a short while to press the &quot;Done&quot; icon, having apparently &#39;learned&#39; that I can be long-winded.  &amp;nbsp;So, this is quite good for a built-in undocumented voice-dictation feature.&lt;br /&gt;
  1360. &lt;br /&gt;
  1361. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Tips on getting voice commands and punctuation to work as expected&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1362. &amp;nbsp; Before asking for &#39;new line&#39; or &#39;new paragraph&#39; it works better if a period prefaces it (though it&#39;s not usually necessary).&lt;br /&gt;
  1363. &lt;br /&gt;
  1364. &amp;nbsp; Also, it&#39;s best to pause slightly after saying &#39;period&#39; when wanting a new line or new paragraph.&lt;br /&gt;
  1365. &lt;br /&gt;
  1366. &amp;nbsp; ON the other hand, don&#39;t wait too long to say &#39;period&#39; to end a sentence, as it will add a space before it if you pause for more than a millisecond.&lt;br /&gt;
  1367. &lt;br /&gt;
  1368. &lt;br /&gt;
  1369. If you have used the voice-dictation feature (available since November 2013 on the mentioned Kindle Fire tablets) and you find new capabilities while trying it out, let us know in the Comments area. &lt;a name=&quot;upd&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1370. &lt;br /&gt;
  1371. &lt;br /&gt;
  1372. &lt;b&gt;NOTES on a really good audio-recording app that I tried this weekend&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1373. (This one is NOT for speech to text but to get dictated material in &lt;i&gt;audio-file format&lt;/i&gt; to send to others or for record-keeping.)&lt;br /&gt;
  1374. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;UPDATE2: AFTER I made the demo recordings&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; for &#39;medium&#39; and &quot;high&quot; quality versions of the &lt;i&gt;original&lt;/i&gt; free Easy Voice Recorder app, I found out tonight that the once $4 &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/easyvoicerecorderpro&quot; target=_blank&gt;Easy Voice Recorder PRO&lt;/a&gt; is now &lt;i&gt;&quot;Actually Free&quot;&lt;/i&gt; under the new &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwn0829&quot;target=_blank&gt;Amazon Underground&lt;/a&gt; feature, which allows us to use, for free, apps that are normally paid apps at other major app stores.&lt;br /&gt;
  1375. &lt;br /&gt;
  1376. &amp;nbsp; Amazon offers these for free when the app developer is paid based on usage (which means that how often you use the app IS tracked for the developer&#39;s revenue), and apparently this developer has confidence in the app&#39;s usefulness. &amp;nbsp;I can see why.&lt;br /&gt;
  1377. &lt;br /&gt;
  1378. &lt;b&gt;The *now &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;FREE&lt;/font&gt;* Easy Voice Recorder Pro&lt;/b&gt; &amp;nbsp;(EVR Pro)&lt;br /&gt;
  1379. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/easyvoicerecorderpro&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61eW4txMZzL._AA200_.png&quot; width=&quot;200&quot; height=&quot;200&quot; hspace=7 align=&quot;left&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1380. &amp;nbsp; For the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/easyvoicerecorderpro&quot; target=_blank&gt;Easy Voice Recorder Pro app&lt;/a&gt;, I added two sound files in WAV format from the original free non-Pro app. &amp;nbsp;The first audio file is an &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/evr-mediumqwavsample&quot; target=_blank&gt;EVR Medium Quality WAV sample&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1381. &lt;br /&gt;
  1382. &amp;nbsp; The second audio file uses the &quot;high&quot; quality setting and is my &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/evr-highqwavsample&quot; target=_blank&gt;EVR High Quality WAV sample&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1383. &lt;br /&gt;
  1384. &amp;nbsp; The third file is an &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/evr-mediumq-m4a-sample&quot; target=_blank&gt;EVR Medium quality M4A sample&lt;/a&gt;. &amp;nbsp;The second audio file uses the &quot;high&quot; quality setting and is my &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/evr-highq-m4a-sample&quot; target=_blank&gt;EVR High Quality M4A sample&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1385. &lt;br /&gt;
  1386. &amp;nbsp; Since I recorded these two audio files &lt;i&gt;before&lt;/i&gt; finding that the &quot;PRO&quot; version is now free and offers stereo recording, &lt;b&gt;&lt;i&gt;my wording&lt;/i&gt; in these files should be &lt;i&gt;ignored&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/b&gt;. &lt;br /&gt;
  1387. &lt;br /&gt;
  1388. &amp;nbsp; While these &lt;i&gt;older free-version&lt;/i&gt; samples are in mono, they still give an idea of the clarity you&#39;ll hear in the Pro app files (newer version that&#39;s free only at Amazon).&lt;br /&gt;
  1389. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;Since Easy Voice Recorder Pro records and STORES, on the tablet, the considerably larger WAV format file, to keep highest quality available (while also offering compressed versions in M4A format when sending the file to others), I&#39;ve linked the medium and high quality WAV as well as the two compressed M4A files for anyone curious about the differences. &lt;br /&gt;
  1390. &lt;br /&gt;
  1391. &amp;nbsp; These should give you an idea of which might work better for you if you&#39;re interested in a voice-recorder with sound-file output for sending or sharing. &amp;nbsp;I noticed that several customer reviews mention that these apps work pretty well for singing as well :-)&lt;br /&gt;
  1392. &lt;br /&gt;
  1393. &amp;nbsp; Apologies for sounding so sleepy in them, but that&#39;s because I was! &lt;br /&gt;
  1394. &lt;br /&gt;
  1395. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;BONUS&lt;/b&gt; feature. &amp;nbsp;I saw that Easy Voice Recorder Pro allows you to Play a recording WHILE Recording on top of that, which means you are &quot;layering&quot; tracks and can do a duet with the output from the first file to make the 2nd file. &amp;nbsp;Unfortunately, it is picking up the speaker output of the first file, so the quality of the first sound-file&#39;s audio is not good. &amp;nbsp;But if you&#39;re recording music, it&#39;s a good way to practice with another part. &lt;a name=&quot;upd2&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1396. &lt;br /&gt;
  1397. &lt;br /&gt;
  1398. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;An alternate fully-featured voice-recorder app, with a great interface:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1399. Another very flexible voice recorder app: &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/hi-q-audio-recorder&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Hi-Q Audio Recorder&lt;/a&gt; also allows you to pause a recording, has several additional, interesting features, and makes files in M4A, WAV, OGG or Flac. ($4~) (&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/hi-q-audiorecorder-sample&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;m4a sample&lt;/a&gt;). &amp;nbsp;This app doesn&#39;t offer an mp3 output file because Hi-Q also offers a very very good, free mp3-recorder app, &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/hi-q-mp3-recorder&quot; target=_blank&gt;Hi-Q MP3 Recorder&lt;/a&gt;, but this free one does not have a Pause option, which is an important lack (&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/hi-q-mp3recorder-sample&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;mp3 sample&lt;/a&gt;). &amp;nbsp;The sample from from the $4~ &quot;audio&quot; app is better for sibilants while the sample from the free &quot;mp3&quot; app has better presence. The Hi-Q apps, like the Easy Voice apps, do allow you to Play one recording WHILE recording on top of that. &lt;br /&gt;
  1400. &lt;br /&gt;
  1401. &lt;br /&gt;
  1402. &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;TIP&lt;/font&gt; on making recorded notes when away from WiFi or 3G and then later  converting these sound files into text&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1403. &amp;nbsp; I was asked about how to save notes, when using Voice-Dictation (to text) during times that we don&#39;t have a WiFi or 3G connection for sending a note or email somewhere. &lt;br /&gt;
  1404. &lt;br /&gt;
  1405. &amp;nbsp; The first thing I found was that the voice-dictation-to-text offline is, for all expected purposes, useless. &amp;nbsp;Apparently the data set that is on the tablet system has to be very pared-down and therefore the app can understand VERY LITTLE of what I say when offline and not connected to the Net&#39;s large data servers with the full data sets. &amp;nbsp;What it typed for me, then, was not understandable by me. &amp;nbsp;This was not unlike some human-to-human conversations.&lt;br /&gt;
  1406. &lt;br /&gt;
  1407. &amp;nbsp; So, don&#39;t bother with trying to use Voice to Text when WiFi or 3G are not available. &amp;nbsp;The Voice Dictation feature is very accurate and capable when you have a fast WiFi connection. &amp;nbsp;I have Comcast Cable and am unable to test how it would be under slower DSL connections.&lt;br /&gt;
  1408. &lt;br /&gt;
  1409. BUT, what you can do when in a space without WiFi or 3G is to use a simple voice-recorder app like Easy Voice Recorder or Hi-Q&#39;s two apps described above, which all save automqtically to sound files on your device.&lt;br /&gt;
  1410. &lt;br /&gt;
  1411. &amp;nbsp; When you&#39;re back on WiFi, you can send the sound files you want, to your computer (via EMail, WiFi transfer, or USB) and then play the audio on the computer while using the tablet&#39;s built-in Voice Dictation-to-text to convert it to text for emails or text notes. &amp;nbsp;The conversion-to-text won&#39;t be quite as accurate as when you&#39;re actually talking to the microphone, but it&#39;s workable with more post-editing required. &amp;nbsp;Using speakers with good treble output to project sibilants will improve the accuracy of the voice-dictation conversion to text. &lt;a name=&quot;upd3&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1412. &lt;br /&gt;
  1413. &lt;br /&gt;
  1414. &lt;b&gt;Reminder for Nov 30: &lt;/b&gt;Amazon has extended the &quot;extra 30% off&quot; for PRINT books deal through the end of Nov 30 (11:59 PST) -- you can get &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;any PRINT book&lt;/font&gt; at Amazon for an extra 30% off&lt;/b&gt; -- just enter &quot;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;HOLIDAY30&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&quot; at Checkout time in the promo code field. &amp;nbsp;HOWEVER, it&#39;s restricted to a maximum $10 off.  &amp;nbsp;This was extended to 11:59pm PST Monday, Nov. 30. &amp;nbsp;See &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazon-printbooks-extra30pctoff&quot; target=_blank&gt;Amazon&#39;s &quot;terms and conditions&quot; here&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1415. &lt;br /&gt;
  1416. &amp;nbsp; Also, Amazon&#39;s aggressive-pricing continues during its &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/cybermondaywk&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;CyberMonday Week&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; that started today.&lt;br /&gt;

  1423. &lt;b&gt;Amazon Kindle and Fire Devices on special sale, Black Friday&lt;/b&gt; (See &lt;a href=&quot;#upd2&quot;&gt;Update 2&lt;/a&gt;: 30% off &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;PRINT&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; book.&lt;br /&gt;
  1424. &lt;br /&gt;
  1425. &amp;nbsp; The special pricing on the &lt;b&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/bfriday-devices&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Black Friday Amazon Devices&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/b&gt; page tends to be available until Nov 28, said to be 11:59 pm that day, tho&#39; some have later ending dates. &amp;nbsp; Some will become available again only during lightning deals for the following &quot;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/cybermondaywk&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;CyberMonday&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt; week&quot; and for as long as the items are in stock).&lt;br /&gt;
  1426. &lt;br /&gt;
  1427. &amp;nbsp; Clicking on the small-version images of Amazon&#39;s special sales page for its devices today will get you to the larger, much more readable page at Amazon.&lt;br /&gt;
  1428. &lt;br /&gt;
  1429. The special device deals today include e-Readers, tablets, as well as Fire TV box and Fire Stick.&lt;br /&gt;
  1430. &lt;br /&gt;
  1431. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/bfriday-devices&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/bfriday-devices2.jpg&quot; align=&quot;left&quot; width=&quot;499&quot; height=&quot;445&quot; hspace=16 vspace=7&gt;&lt;/a&gt;  &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Highlights&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1432. &lt;br /&gt;
  1433. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Fire TV&lt;/b&gt; devices&lt;br /&gt;
  1434. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fire-tv-stick&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire TV Stick&lt;/a&gt;, normally $39.99, is nearly 40% off at $24.99.&lt;br /&gt;
  1435. &lt;br /&gt;
  1436. &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firetv-2015&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire TV Box&lt;/a&gt; (more fully-featured), normally $99.99 is 25% off at $75.99 and that&#39;s a rare price for this.&lt;br /&gt;
  1437. &lt;br /&gt;
  1438. &amp;nbsp; Here&#39;s Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firetvcompare2015&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;Yr 2015 FireTV-comparison table&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1439. &lt;br /&gt;
  1440. &lt;br /&gt;
  1441. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Kindle e-Readers and tablets&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1442. The &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kindlebasic-touch&quot; target=_blank&gt;basic Kindle e-Ink e-Reader&lt;/a&gt; is almost 40% off at $49.99.&lt;br /&gt;
  1443. &lt;br /&gt;
  1444. You can save $15 on the new &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/fire50&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire tablet&lt;/a&gt;, which has been, Amazon says, &quot;the #1 best-selling product&quot; on Amazon.com since launch. &amp;nbsp;Normally, $50, it&#39;s $34.99 today. &lt;br clear=&quot;left&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1445. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Once more: the sometimes confusing lineup of Kindles and how to decide &lt;br /&gt;
  1446. &amp;nbsp; which ones would work best for you&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1447. &amp;nbsp; Here&#39;s a set of links that should help clarify the differences between models and allow easier comparison of features and prices:&lt;br /&gt;
  1448. &lt;br /&gt;
  1449. &amp;nbsp; • Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/tabletcompare2015&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Tablet Comparison&lt;/a&gt; table&lt;br /&gt;
  1450. &amp;nbsp; • Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/comparekindles-eink&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Comparison table for the e-Ink Kindle eReaders&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1451. &amp;nbsp; • &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kpw3pics&quot; target=_blank&gt;Paperwhite 3 vs Paperwhite 1: photos&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1452. &amp;nbsp; * &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazon2015devices&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Yr 2015 lineup: Details&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1453. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; plus a quick-text listing or table of the various models:&lt;br /&gt;
  1454. &amp;nbsp; • &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwpkindles&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Which Kindles Where?&lt;/a&gt; (Models available)&lt;br /&gt;
  1455. &lt;br /&gt;
  1456. &lt;br /&gt;
  1457. The previous blog article was on &lt;a ref=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwbf15&quot; target=_blank&gt;how the 8 days of Black Friday would work&lt;/a&gt; and the coming &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/cybermondaywk&quot; target=_blank&gt;CyberMonday Week&lt;/a&gt; starting Nov. 30 will see similar multiple sales events.&lt;br /&gt;
  1458. &lt;br /&gt;
  1459. &lt;b&gt;GENERAL&lt;/b&gt; Black Friday pages for the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-us&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;US&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-uk&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;UK&lt;/a&gt;, and &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-ca&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Canada&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a name=&quot;upd2&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1460. &lt;br /&gt;
  1461. &lt;br /&gt;
  1462. &lt;b&gt;UPDATE 2: &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Additional 30% off ANY Print Book 11/26-11/29&lt;/font&gt; (thru&#39; Sunday)&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1463. I got word of this and forgot, and it&#39;s not easily findable on the Amazon pages: &lt;blockquote&gt;&#39; Shopping Alert: Amazon Books announced it&#39;s offering shoppers an extra 30% discount on any print title beginning on Thanksgiving Day. &amp;nbsp;Shoppers must enter &quot;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;HOLIDAY30&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&quot; at checkout &lt;i&gt;between Thursday (11/26) and Sunday (11/29)&lt;/i&gt; to receive the discount. &#39;&lt;br /&gt;
  1464. &lt;br /&gt;
  1465. [Amazon adds that the Amazon Book editors recently announced their &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amznbestbooks2015&quot; target=_blank&gt;Best Books of 2015&lt;/a&gt; and that if any of you are looking for gifting options to use this 30% off on, take a look at the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/holidaygiftpicks&quot; target=_blank&gt;Editors’ Holiday Gift Picks&lt;/a&gt;.] &lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1466. I&#39;ll end this here, since Thanksgiving and other events kept me from getting this out last night.&lt;br /&gt;
  1467. &lt;br /&gt;
  1468. &amp;nbsp I&#39;m also working today on another blog article, to be completed this weekend, on how to dictate emails (voice dictation) and notes to Evernote and other apps on the Kindle HDX models. &lt;br /&gt;
  1469. &lt;br /&gt;
  1470. &amp;nbsp;  I&#39;ve tested what works and doesn&#39;t in the way of punctuation and certain formats it understands (currency and time).  This works very well for me on the 8.9&quot; HDX that I have and for a friend&#39;s 7&quot; HDX.  &lt;br /&gt;
  1471. &lt;br /&gt;
  1472. &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;UPDATED&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;, after initial posting:&lt;br /&gt;
  1473. &lt;b&gt;EDITED:&lt;/b&gt; According to Amazon help pages on Language and Keyboard options:&lt;br /&gt;
  1474. &amp;nbsp; &quot;&lt;i&gt;For Kindle Fire HDX (3rd Generation), Fire HD (4th Generation), or Fire HDX 8.9 (4th Generation) devices, tap the &lt;i&gt;microphone icon&lt;/i&gt; on your keyboard to use your voice to dictate text instead of typing.&lt;/i&gt;&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1475. &lt;br /&gt;
  1476. &amp;nbsp; This means that the current HD6 and HD7 &quot;Fire&quot; tablets do have the Voice-dictation-to-text feature.&lt;br /&gt;
  1477. &lt;br /&gt;
  1478. &lt;b&gt;One more thing&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1479. &amp;nbsp; I&#39;ll also include, in that later blog article today, an example from a very effective voice-recorder app (NOT voice-to-text but an audio file) that I bought ($3), which is clearer than others I&#39;d tried  earlier, and is even said by commenters to be very good for recording singing. &lt;br /&gt;
  1480. &lt;br /&gt;
  1481. &amp;nbsp; This is of course for Kindle tablets that use a microphone, although I saw that someone who bought earbuds with a mic attached was able to do the simple recording of voice to an audio file, which they can save and send or keep in a library.&lt;br /&gt;
  1482. &lt;br /&gt;
  1483. &lt;br /&gt;

Long listing of examples of top deals ... Paperwhite 3 vs Paperwhite 1 photos ... New Handmade store ... Martha Stewart American Made store ...Isis: Inside the Army of Terror + an online article in 3 parts, based on an interview with an ISIS spy. Updated 11/20.</title><description>&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/Isis-by-weiss&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;img align=&quot;left&quot; height=&quot;160&quot; hspace=&quot;14&quot; src=&quot;http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41D7YrVo5RL._AA160_.jpg&quot; vspace=&quot;7&quot; width=&quot;160&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1486. &lt;b&gt;WHY?&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1487. While watching the news this week, I heard CNN Contributor Michael Weiss on a panel discussing ISIS  and the Paris attacks and found his flow of details about the middle east situation more informative than the usual and looked him up to find he co-authored the New York Times bestseller &quot;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/Isis-by-weiss&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Isis: Inside the Army of Terror&lt;/a&gt;,&quot; which gets good reviews. &amp;nbsp;The one complaint I saw was that there are a lot of acronyms involved and they&#39;re hard to remember when explained only once.&lt;br /&gt;
  1488. &lt;br /&gt;
  1489. &amp;nbsp; I thought that was true also of his 3-part series online, &quot;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/confessions-isis-spy&quot; target=_blank&gt;Confessions of an Isis Spy&lt;/a&gt;,&quot; based on days of interviews with a &quot;man claiming to be a member of the so-called Islamic State’s security services&quot; who provided details on the inner workings of the group.&lt;br /&gt;
  1490. &lt;br /&gt;
  1491. &amp;nbsp; The Kindle book has the &quot;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;X-Ray&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&quot; feature enabled, which means that if you see an acronym on a page and want to remember what it represents, you can tap on &#39;X-Ray&#39; (menu option), then tap on &quot;Terms,&quot; to get a definition plus links to each time the word or acronym is mentioned, along with applicable text on those pages. &amp;nbsp;This is probably my favorite Kindle book feature when reading non-fiction.&lt;br /&gt;
  1492. &lt;br /&gt;
  1493. &amp;nbsp; It&#39;s a terrible subject, but I want to try to understand it where that&#39;s possible, and I thought others might too.&lt;br /&gt;
  1494. &lt;br /&gt;
  1495. &lt;i&gt;Yes, it&#39;s that time of the year again...&lt;/i&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1496. &lt;b&gt;8 Days of ~Black &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Friday&lt;/font&gt;~ begin Friday Jan. 20 (tomorrow)&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1497. Here are the Black Friday links again that were given earlier for the &quot;Countdown&quot; period: &lt;br /&gt;
  1498. &lt;br /&gt;
  1499. &amp;nbsp; &lt;i&gt;Black Friday pages&lt;/i&gt; for the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-us&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;US&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-uk&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;UK&lt;/a&gt;, and &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-ca&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Canada&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1500. &lt;br /&gt;
  1501. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;The sometimes confusing lineup of Kindles and how to decide &lt;br /&gt;
  1502. &amp;nbsp; which ones would work best for you&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1503. &amp;nbsp; Since some will be interested in the sales on Kindle e-Ink eReaders or Amazon&#39;s Fire tablets, here&#39;s a set of links that should help clarify the differences between models and allow easier comparison of features and prices:&lt;br /&gt;
  1504. &lt;br /&gt;
  1505. &amp;nbsp; • Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/tabletcompare2015&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Tablet Comparison&lt;/a&gt; table&lt;br /&gt;
  1506. &amp;nbsp; • Amazon&#39;s &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/comparekindles-eink&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Comparison table for the e-Ink Kindle eReaders&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1507. &amp;nbsp; • &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kpw3pics&quot; target=_blank&gt;Paperwhite 3 vs Paperwhite 1: photos&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1508. &amp;nbsp; • &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazon2015devices&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Yr 2015 lineup: Details&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1509. &amp;nbsp; • &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwpkindles&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Which Kindles Where?&lt;/a&gt; (Models available)&lt;br /&gt;
  1510. &lt;br /&gt;
  1511. &amp;nbsp IN THE MEANTIME, today (Nov 19), the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/firehd-10&quot; target=_blank&gt;Fire Tablet 10&lt;/a&gt; (10.1&quot; HD display, 16GB) is on sale &quot;for a limited time&quot; for &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#@cc0000&quot;&gt;$199.99&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; (normally $229.99).&lt;br /&gt;
  1512. &lt;br /&gt;
  1513. I&#39;ll include, at the &lt;a href=&quot;#onsale&quot;&gt;bottom&lt;/a&gt; of this blog article, Amazon&#39;s very long list of examples of specific products that will be on sale.&lt;br /&gt;
  1514. &lt;br /&gt;
  1515. &amp;nbsp; SIDE NOTE: In addition, Amazon has launched its new &lt;b&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;HANDMADE&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt; products store.&lt;br /&gt;
  1516. &amp;nbsp; • &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/handmade-at-amazon&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;i&gt;Handmade at Amazon&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1517. &amp;nbsp; • &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/marthastewart-americanmade&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;&lt;i&gt;Martha Stewart American Made&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1518. &lt;br /&gt;
  1519. &amp;nbsp; That&#39;s right.  &lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;Martha Stewart left EBay&lt;/span&gt; for Amazon, and her new store opens today. &amp;nbsp;Amazon&#39;s announcement explains that the new &lt;i&gt;Handmade&lt;/i&gt; store&lt;br /&gt;
  1520. &quot;spotlights local artisans that are personally selected by Martha Stewart and the editors of Martha Stewart Living. &amp;nbsp;On Handmade at Amazon, artisans selling in the Martha Stewart American Made store will be identified in their artisan profile page with the official Martha Stewart American Made badge. &amp;nbsp;To start, hundreds of unique handcrafted items are offered from artisans that have earned the Martha Stewart American Made distinction.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1521. &lt;br /&gt;
  1522. &lt;br /&gt;
  1523. &lt;b&gt;From Amazon&#39;s Black Friday week announcement:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;blockquote&gt;&#39;...new deals [will be] added as often as every five minutes for eight straight days&quot; at the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-us&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Black Friday page&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1524. &amp;nbsp;&quot; Customers will have access to &lt;i&gt;10 coveted Deals of the Day&lt;/i&gt; starting at midnight on Thanksgiving, and &lt;i&gt;up to 10 more on Black Friday&lt;/i&gt;. Customers can also shop limited-time Lightning Deals on thousands of sought-after products per day throughout the eight days of deals.&lt;br /&gt;
  1525. &lt;br /&gt;
  1526. Plus, &lt;b&gt;Prime members&lt;/b&gt; will &lt;b&gt;get 30-minutes early access to the majority&lt;/b&gt; of these Lightning Deals. &lt;blockquote&gt;[&lt;i&gt;This means some of the best deals could be gone before the non-Prime members get a look at them.&lt;/i&gt; &lt;br /&gt;
  1527. &lt;br /&gt;
  1528. HOWEVER, Amazon will recognize 30 day Free Trials of &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-us&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Prime&lt;/a&gt; (UK prime &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/prime-uk&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;here&lt;/a&gt;) during the 8 days of Black Friday, and there is the option to cancel the free trial after that.] &lt;/blockquote&gt;This year, Amazon &lt;b&gt;will introduce&lt;/b&gt; more than 150 hand-picked Lightning Deals on everything from electronics to kitchen gadgets &lt;b&gt;only through the Amazon Mobile Shopping App available on Android, iOS, and Fire OS&lt;/b&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;
  1529. &lt;br /&gt;
  1530. &amp;nbsp; These deals can be found on the “&lt;i&gt;App Only&lt;/i&gt; Deals” tab and will be &lt;b&gt;released daily from 3 pm PT to 11 pm PT&lt;/b&gt; starting Thanksgiving &lt;b&gt;through Wednesday, December 9&lt;/b&gt;. In addition, Prime members in 20 metro areas can use the dedicated &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/primenow&quot; target=_blank&gt;Prime Now mobile app&lt;/a&gt; to enjoy free two-hour delivery on select Deals of the Day throughout the holiday season.&lt;br /&gt;
  1531. &lt;br /&gt;
  1532. &amp;nbsp;. . . This year, [Amazon adds the feature] &amp;nbsp;“&lt;b&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;Watch A Deal&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;” which allows holiday shoppers to &lt;b&gt;pick the deals&lt;/b&gt; they’re most excited about &lt;b&gt;and receive a notification to their mobile device when the deal is live&lt;/b&gt;. With this new feature, Amazon customers can effortlessly take advantage of deals throughout the day and while on-the-go.&lt;br /&gt;
  1533. &lt;br /&gt;
  1534. Steve Shure, Vice President, Amazon Consumer Marketing [added]: “...with &lt;b&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: #cc0000;&quot;&gt;App Only Deals&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;, customers will have plenty of options when it comes to scoring great deals from Amazon.” &lt;br /&gt;
  1535. &lt;a name=&quot;onsale&quot;&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1536. Following are examples of some of the top deals that will be available at various times between November 20 and Black Friday at [&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-us&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Amazon&#39;s Black Friday page, U.S.&lt;/a&gt;].&lt;br /&gt;

  1640. &lt;br /&gt;
  1641. &lt;br /&gt;
  1642. &lt;b&gt;Some Amazon changes&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1643. &lt;br /&gt;
  1644. Amazon is &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.marketwatch.com/story/amazon-shutting-down-groupon-rival-2015-10-30&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;ending, on December 18&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/a&gt;, its &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/amazon-offers&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;i&gt;Amazon Local&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt; feature and app for locally-focused coupons. &amp;nbsp;Amazon Local was launched in 2011 with the help of Living Social. &lt;br /&gt;
  1645. &lt;br /&gt;
  1646. &amp;nbsp; According to &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.marketwatch.com/story/amazon-shutting-down-groupon-rival-2015-10-30&quot; target=_blank&gt;MarketWatch&lt;/a&gt;, ...the site and app will cease offering deals on Dec. 18, and the daily email featuring deals ceased Friday, &lt;i&gt;though deals that customers have purchased or buy through Dec. 18 will be honored after that date&lt;/i&gt;.&quot; &lt;br clear=&quot;left&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1647. &amp;nbsp; &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.businessfinancenews.com/25772-amazoncom-inc-amzn-pulls-the-plug-on-two-business-divisions/&quot; target=_blank&gt;BusinessFinanceNews&lt;/a&gt; adds: &lt;blockquote&gt;... [Amazon] also [had] bought stake in ... “LivingSocial” for $200 million. &amp;nbsp;[Living Social] ... recently cut its workforce by 20% and shifted its focus to long-term deals. &amp;nbsp;Amazon has 30% stake in the company, which was once valued [at] $1 billion. &amp;nbsp;It fell $242 million by 2014 end. &amp;nbsp;According to GeekWire, Amazon recorded a $169 million write down on the investment. &lt;br /&gt;
  1648. &lt;br /&gt;
  1649. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;&#39;&lt;i&gt;From October 30, 2015 until December 18, 2015&lt;/i&gt;, you can continue to purchase deals at Amazon Local as usual,&#39; &lt;/b&gt; Amazon announced.  &amp;nbsp;&lt;b&gt;&#39;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;All purchased vouchers will not be affected by this change and remain valid according to their terms.&lt;/font&gt;&#39;&lt;/b&gt; &lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1650. &lt;b&gt;Special Kindle Daily Deal page offering: &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;Up to 85% off&lt;/font&gt; selected Kindle books for November&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1651. &amp;nbsp; Amazon&#39;s own daily deals remain, of course, and the current &quot;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kdailydeal&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;i&gt;Kindle Daily Deal page&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&quot; is also featuring a big special for the holidays. &amp;nbsp;As seen in the article image, Amazon&#39;s offering Kindle books at &quot;up to 85% off&quot; -- this is similar to its (now removed) &quot;Big Deal&quot;).&lt;br /&gt;
  1652. &lt;br /&gt;
  1653. &lt;br /&gt;
  1654. &lt;b&gt;REGULAR Monthly Kindle books offered at between $.99 to $3.99&lt;/b&gt; [&lt;i&gt;Updated to correct amounts&lt;/i&gt;]&lt;br /&gt;
  1655. This is the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/mkbooks-1to4&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://www.andrys.com/nov2015kdeals.jpg&quot; align=&quot;right&quot; width=&quot;399&quot; height=&quot;226&quot; hspace=14 vspace=7&gt;&lt;/a&gt; ongoing &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/mkbooks-1to4&quot; target=_blank&gt;MONTHLY Kindle books deal of books offered at $.99 to $3.99&lt;/a&gt;. &amp;nbsp;The image and book links in this paragraph will take you to this particular monthly feature for &lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;November 2015&#39;s&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; Kindle books, a feature which differs from the Special Kindle Deal page offer seen above that&#39;s for November as well. &lt;br /&gt;
  1656. &lt;br /&gt;
  1657. &amp;nbsp; Amazon had a good quarter report with a big boost in sales and, possibly in connection with the premise of the &lt;a href=&quot;http://observer.com/2015/09/do-e-books-earn-more-money-at-lower-prices/&quot; target=_blank&gt;article I saw last month in Observer&lt;/a&gt;, they&#39;re offering more deals than before on Kindle books.&lt;br /&gt;
  1658. &lt;br /&gt;
  1659. &amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;Side Note: E-book pricing and sales:&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1660. &amp;nbsp; The title of the Observer article (which references a Wall Street Journal article) is &quot;&lt;i&gt;Do E-Books Earn More Money at Lower Prices?&lt;/i&gt;&quot; and it points out that while the large publishers who re-negotiated contracts that allow them to set the prices, the WSJ reports that they &quot;&lt;i&gt;reported declining e-book revenue&lt;/i&gt; in their latest reporting periods. &lt;br /&gt;
  1661. &amp;nbsp; &quot;The new business model for e-books is having a significant impact on what [the big] publishers report,&quot; said one publishing executive. &amp;nbsp;&quot;There’s no question that publishers’ net receipts have gone down.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1662. &lt;br /&gt;
  1663. &amp;nbsp; The Observer mentions that &quot;more writers are producing more books and making more money than ever before. A lot of that increase has occurred outside major publishers, though.&quot; &amp;nbsp;And they remind us of Amazon&#39;s rare look &quot;into its data around prices and e-book sales. &amp;nbsp;The Amazon Books Team posted on the Kindle Forum, writing:&quot; &lt;blockquote&gt;&quot;For every copy an e-book would sell at $14.99, it would sell 1.74 copies if priced at $9.99.&lt;br /&gt;
  1664. &lt;br /&gt;
  1665. &amp;nbsp; So, for example, if customers would buy 100,000 copies of a particular e-book at $14.99, then customers would buy 174,000 copies of that same e-book at $9.99. &amp;nbsp;Total revenue at $14.99 would be $1,499,000. &amp;nbsp;Total revenue at $9.99 is $1,738,000.&quot;&lt;/blockquote&gt;.  &lt;br /&gt;
  1666. &lt;b&gt;REMINDER -- NOVEMBER&#39;S &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;FREE&lt;/font&gt; Kindle books&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1667. &lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;November&#39;sfree Kindle books&lt;/font&gt; (contemporary or non-classics)&lt;br /&gt;
  1668. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/free-oct-2015&quot; target=_blank&gt;October 2015&lt;/a&gt; &amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/free-nov-2015&quot; target=_blank&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#cc0000&quot;&gt;November&lt;/font&gt;&lt;/b&gt; 2015&lt;/a&gt;.  &lt;br /&gt;
  1669. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; Also, all currently free non-classics sorted by:&lt;br /&gt;
  1670. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/latestfreenonclassics5&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Publication Date&lt;/a&gt; &amp;nbsp; &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/bestsellerfreenonclassics5&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Bestselling&lt;/a&gt; &lt;nobr&gt;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=&quot;http://amzn.to/highratedfreenonclassics5&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;High ratings&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/nobr&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1671. &lt;br /&gt;
  1672. A reminder: On the first 2-3 days of the month, the current month&#39;s free Kindle books listing will have many that are chapters for a book, or shorter works, and some Not-&quot;family-safe&quot; content that can creep in there when Amazon is asleep. &amp;nbsp;In that case, check the previous month&#39;s free Kindle books offerings (&quot;October&quot;), which is sorted by most-recently published first.&lt;br /&gt;
  1673. &lt;br /&gt;
  1674. &lt;br /&gt;
  1675. &lt;b&gt;BLACK FRIDAY PAGE starts up again, quietly&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1676. Black Friday (&lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-us&quot; target=_blank&gt;US&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-uk&quot; target=_blank&gt;UK&lt;/a&gt;, and &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/blackfriday-ca&quot; target=_blank&gt;Canada&lt;/a&gt;) is already back, in the form &quot;&lt;i&gt;Countdown to Black Friday&lt;/i&gt;,&quot; with some special deals daily until the usual official launch day. &amp;nbsp;In the UK and Canada, it&#39;s more subtle, but the &quot;Black Friday&quot; page shows current deals that will be changing.&lt;br /&gt;
  1677. &lt;br /&gt;
  1678. &lt;br /&gt;
  1679. &lt;b&gt;Here&#39;s a bit more on Amazon Flex&lt;/b&gt; that I meant to include earlier in the &lt;a href=&quot;http://bit.ly/kwn1002&quot; target=_blank&gt;previous article&lt;/a&gt;. &amp;nbsp;A cousin in San Francisco had a very similar positive experience to the one described below in &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.geekwire.com/2015/i-tried-amazons-new-restaurant-delivery-service-and-netflix-nights-will-never-be-the-same/&quot; target=_blank&gt;this Geekwire article&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1680. &amp;nbsp; Re the &lt;i&gt;Under-1-hr free delivery&lt;/i&gt; for Prime members from &lt;b&gt;restaurants&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
  1681. &quot;After I placed my order, I could watch my delivery rider making his way across town on a real-time map.  I received an automated text message about two minutes before he arrived.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1682. . . .&lt;br /&gt;
  1683. &quot;It wasn’t until after he left that it dawned on me the impressive feat Amazon had accomplished. It usually takes about 20 minutes for a restaurant to prepare a carryout order, and the restaurant I chose is about a 12 minute ride from my apartment — up an infamous hill. That leaves just 5 minutes of wiggle room for my order to be able to show up within 37 minutes like it did.&quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  1684. &lt;br /&gt;
  1685. &lt;br /&gt;
