hmmmm Kindle Fire, anyone got any opinions? My bro bought me a Kindle for xmas but Im not sure whether to back it and wait for the Fire next month as I think it'll be more up my street. I do read, not a lot but I usually go through stages. TBH I wish I read more especially now I get the tube. I just don't now if ill get the use out of the Kindle and for how much ill read I'm sure the Kindle Fire screen will be okay…

anyone know much about it? or planning to get one?

Kindle Fire has an illuminated colour screen like the iPad, so it won't be as "easy" (i.e more eye strain during long term reading) on the eyes as e-ink, which stimulates reading on paper.

I was given a Kindle for Christmas and absolutely love it, already transfered a whole load of books onto it. My only tip is use Calibre (instead of kindlegen) to convert any "epub" books you may acquire, into mobi format. Oh and try to avoid PDF, as they're just a mess…

just that we use one account to download apps etc.

In the music app on my iPad, when I sort by Artist it shows each artist with an album cover - is there anyway to change it so it just shows a list?

I never had issues with wifi and Apple products, the only time I did was with an Android tablet but that's another story.

Forget the network and reconnect, that usually works.

Failing that reset the network settings and try again.

I get all sorts of problems over the last few years at my work place, the above two tends to fix most problems on iOS devices.
