The Kindle Fire is pathetic! Even if I was on welfare, I wouldn't want one. I don't give a crap about how cheap it is. They can keep that ad infested, Android abomination for themselves.
The competition is scared shitless! How many Kindle Fires has Amazon sold again? Oh, that's right, virtually nobody besides Apple has the balls to actually release any sales figures.
The competition is cheap crap, and they also have no balls. I also believe that they are being misleading and targeting their propaganda towards ignorant individuals when they're trying to hype that their display has a few more pixels. What would you rather have, 200 ounces of silver, or 100 ounces of gold? A dummy would of course choose 200 ounces of silver. A greater number doesn't always mean that something is better, and it's certainly not indicative of quality.
I'm about to get hit by that freaking frankenstorm, and thank goodness for my iPad! If the power goes out, which is not unlikely, then the iPad is actually the device that I have in my house that will last the longest without electricity. If the power does goes out, you might not be seeing me online here for a while. I guess that I'll put it in airplane mode, lower the screen brightness slightly and play some of the hundreds of games that I have to kill the time, if I'm stuck here with no electricity. I couldn't even buy any flashlights, everywhere is sold out! All of my iOS devices are currently charged to the max, in preparation for that killer hurricane.
In conclusion, screw the Kindle Fire!
