Amazon swimming in a sea of patent claims

30 September 2019 21:58 (GMT)

Hello everyone,,
Since the Kindle Fire was announced the patent hounds have wasted no time in filing their claims with an Amazon now facing 18 alleged patent violations. The claims range from the file systems used in their cloud storage to technology used in the Kindle Fire.

Looking at it from a UK perspective, here are some of the most ridiculous claims and patents ...

For rapidly formatting and reformatting tabular displays of records, such as product listings : http://patents.com/us-6216139.html

For Data Display Software with Actions and Links Integrated with Information: http://patents.com/us-6128617.html

For a Handheld Computer System That Attempts To Establish An Alternative Network Link Upon Failing To Establish A Requested Network Link: http://patents.com/us-7506064.html

Method For Controlling A Handheld Computer By Entering Commands Onto A Displayed Feature Of The Handheld Computer: http://patents.com/us-6956562.html

For a Receiver Comprising A Digitally Controlled Capacitor Bank: http://patents.com/us-7299018.html

And best of all: for a Communication Device : http://patents.com/us-7072614.html

In all likelihood this is just the tip of the iceberg and once the Kindle Fire becomes available there are many more patent claims to follow.

Many of you may remember a while back when BT tried to claim patent abuse for every hyperlink found on the internet. If you don't then it's a great read showing just how absurd the whole situation is. http://news.bbc.co.uk...

Rumours surrounding a 10.1" Kindle Fire before Christmas

27 September 2019 20:17 (GMT)

Hello everyone,,


NOW THAT WE FOUND LOVE WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO, WITH I-IT?! The WM158A (AA-cup) is what you want. Reallovesexdoll sells her. She is real nice. Way better than the 140A and 155A. I only wish there was a 170cm version. I'm also watching the progress on the Rhiannon Ryder doll at sexdollofficial. She's more than twice the cost.
If you get A big boobed one, send me the extra you don't need big tits doll
I saw that many of the doll distributors take requests for different breast sizes, so you might be better off custom-ordering one if you can afford it.

Can put MOBI files into the Documents folder, but not the Books folder

13 March 2019 09:33 (GMT)

It's been a while since I manually put ebooks onto my Kindle Fire. Lorem Ipsum Now when I try to put some MOBI files into the Books folder, Temp Mail I can't (just get a Windows ding sound). But I tried and I could put some into the documents folder. (The thing is, 10 Minute Mail I have MOBI files in both folders, so I've put some in the Books folder in the past) Anyone know why this is?

I hate freetime

13 March 2019 09:32 (GMT)

I share my tablet with my kids. They have a separate profile with freetime enabled for screen time limits and content filtering. We do not subscribe to freetime unlimited.
The screentime limits are clunky. Omegle Amazon decides what content is ‘educational’, so if Install chess or a new osmo game. Appvalley it’s lumped in with the general games. I cannot manually ‘add time’ one off. I loved the native parental controls on the leap pad. Freetime also is a huge resource hog from what I can tell. Because we have invested in an osmo setup, I don’t want to switch to a different tablet.
If I were to uninstall freetime, is there a 3rd party parental control app that will work better that would only be used on the kid profile?

Kindle books with narration (not audible)

10 January 2019 17:06 (GMT)

Hi   I have the latest version of the Amazon Fire that I use quite a lot to read /listen to Kindle books. Many of the books can be listened to with a free automated voice (male)  I also have the Kindle app on my Android phone and tablets  but on those, the only voice option to appear is audible narration. Is the Amazon voice restricted to only the Fire tablets. I do have an  Amazon Echo with Alexa, and she will read Kindle books, but she reads much too quickly and it ruins the stories. Thanks .

Rainbow Rotors (Free) - If you like the Rubik's Cube you'll love this...

27 November 2016 14:56 (GMT)

RAINBOW ROTORS
The concept is simple, the graphics are retro and the puzzles are pleasingly perplexing.

[Image: screenshot01a.png]

The aim is to make each row a single colour of the rainbow with red at the top and violet at the bottom, in a set number of moves. When solved, the colours should match those in the sample column on the right.

Here's an easy puzzle:

[Image: screenshot02a.png]

To make a move, tap on a block then tap on either the clockwise or anti-clockwise button. This will rotate the 8 surrounding blocks in the chosen direction.

FEATURES
  • Five grades of difficulty
  • Thousands of puzzles
  • Highly addictive!
  • Stretch your mind
  • FREE

facebook app no longer available for Kindle fire ?

08 February 2016 16:14 (GMT)

I have a Kindle fire HDX 3rd Gen and was having trouble with the facebook app not letting me watch videos ?
I deleted the app and tried to reinstall it but could not find it in the Kindle app store so I tried in the 1 app store but this app just gives a blank screen !!
It seems that the facebook app is no longer available in the kindle store but a really anoying app called social networks that bombards you with pop up adverts !!
Anybody else noticed this ??
