We’ve had two of them since right after the launch and overall I’m pleased. They get used quite a bit by everyone, and they are useful at home. For the kids it’s mostly the games, Amazon offers a good selection of free games and everyday features a ‘not free’ app as free, and those are […]Read more "Kindle Fire Update"
