You DON’T Need An F***ING Kindle
To Read Kindle eBook!

Can YOU help me get this f***ing point across.

This, I think, is my pet peeve.

People thinking that you need an f***ing, bloody Kindle.

This was Jeff Bezos’ ONE mistake. 


Look I am reading a Kindle
and I don’t have a Kindle.

That is a Web Browser. Google Chrome.

A Kindle eBook can be read on ANY device:
Apple, Android or Windows —
even in a Web browser.

Just because I didn’t buy my Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 from Amazon does not, in anyway or shape, mean that I do not buy stuff from Amazon on a frequent (and I really don’t want to claim ‘daily’) basis. So, when I saw the new Kindle Fire, at the low-ball advertised price, I was tempted. Not for me. I am a 10″ guy. But Deanna had been angling for a pad and this seemed like a good deal.

Well, the advertised price is a ‘starter’. Once you add an option or two and get a case you are at $90 — BUT that is still NOT bad, ALBEIT this is not a bona fide Android Pad. So there is NO Chrome browser. Instead there is Amazon’s Silk browser. But it was worth a try.

I pre-ordered it and Amazon to its credit had it delivered by UPS on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 — as promised. So we had one on Day 1 of availability. Neat. Actually that was also the case with our first Google Nexus 7 in July 2012. I had pre-ordered that too and it came on Day 1 — as Google had promised. 

So far so good. It is cute. Nice nice. Sharp, crisp display — as they claim. Seems fast too. Amazon Cloud Storage included.

So not a bad buy.

They are offering a 6-pack — BUY 5 get one FREE, for a total of 6. Was I tempted? Aaaahhhhh! Maybe come Black Friday (or thereabouts). Maybe I will get a DOZEN! It would be FUN to give some to deserving kids (and have ONE in the car, dedicated to GPS). SMILE.

I am GLAD. Though there are things that I do not agree with him about, in particular ‘global warming‘, and I detest his hypocrisy and blatant pimping to the almighty dollar, I don’t dislike him!

So, I really did NOT want to take him to task for making another ‘I invented the Internet‘ remark.

In Concord, on Wednesday, at his book signing, he made this statement: ‘When Bill Clinton and I got to the White House we checked the Web and found that there were only 50 Web pages‘.

There was no reaction from the audience. I was not in a position to comment.

I was a very late adopter of the Web. I was Mr. SNA and the Web was SNA’s direct enemy. I was busy making money with SNA-related initiatives.

I think I only started using the Web, intermittently at that, in 1996. To make it worse, in those days I was a rabid Mac user. Didn’t have a PC and bad mouthed Windows like there was no tomorrow. Getting a Web browser for Macs was NOT EASY. You had to buy Navigator, in a white box — for what I think was $79.99. Then there were all sorts of tweaks you had to do to get it to run properly. That wasn’t a problem. I used to be a Mac expert. Navigator for Macs also was notoriously flaky! But, I had learned, by trial and error, all the tricks. If you kept the cursor in certain places … Navigator would not hang! I kid you not. I cannot remember the exact scenarios, but I do remember that you had to make sure that the cursor was underneath (but not in) the address bar trench when you started some operation. If not, Navigator would hang.

Last night I did some quick checking. I couldn’t get a good number for 1992 and 1993. Today I found that there were 623 Web pages at the END of 1993 — but remember 1993 of the pivotal year when Mosaic, the first graphical Web browser, came online. So that would have precipitated the growth of many Web sites. Then today I found this. Not sure how accurate it is, but it says 50. Never sure whether they got it from Al or Al got it from them. But …
