Kindle Fire Issues?

Sara, one of our awesome followers just sent me this article that I found quite interesting. Read it here at CNN.com.

To sum up the article, some people are having issues with the Kindle Fire. The placement of the power button- that it's too easy to accidentally press, the fact it has no physical volume button, that the touch is slow to respond at times and that Silk, Amazon's web browsing system, is a bit slow.

I have to say that within I guess about a month of having this device, I don't have too many problems with it. Now I miss the old slide on/off key that my Kindle 3 has, and the button can be a bit annoying when I sit my Kindle down to read and it just shuts off. But other than that, not really (and to me that's really minor). Everything else I haven't noticed issues or slowness with. To see my full review on the Kindle Fire, click here.

At least through this, Amazon is stepping up and creating an update to help some of these features. And that's what love about Amazon, the fact that they see something is wrong and their very proactive to fix the problem. One of the things that this update will include will be a better sense of privacy for individuals.

What do you think? Have you guys had any troubles with your Fire? I'd love to hear some feedback.

Hi. I found your blog through Book Blogs and now I'm a follower.

My hubby is considering an Amazon Fire, so I'd also be interested to see what the comments are about it.

You're blog is great Jenn!
And the link to the article is in the post, I figured people would want to see it for themselves. Like I said, I personally don't see too much wrong with the Fire myself. I love it and I think it would be a great gift for any reader. So I hope that post doesn't discourage you too much!
