Thanks to the Reader Who Bought the Amazon Kindle Fire 7-Inch HDX Tablet

Posted on | December 4, 2013 | 17 Comments

Somebody’s going to be happy to get this awesome 32-GB WiFi tablet for Christmas, and I reckon one of our readers must have bought it on an Amazon Cyber Monday Deals Week special, because the regular price is $269, whereas our smart shopper paid only $219.

Tablets are like the new smartphone or something. All the cool kids have one. The original idea of the Kindle was like an electronic book, but now kids use them to play video games and watch movies. Like, you can get Fast and Furious 6 as an Amazon Instant Video download for $14.99, and Jeff Bezos says the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9-inch will kick the butt of those expensive iPads — for only $379.



You can buy anything at Amazon, get great prices and free shipping for most purchases over $35 and, as long as your shopping trip begins via the links on my blog, I get a small commission at no cost to you.

Like the cool kids say, it’s awesome, dude.

    Seriously, someone needs to write up some instructions on how to do this. I know there is a time limit (15 minutes?) to buy something after I hit your link. But my computer is slow and I’m slower.

    If I put everything in my “cart” and then come here and hit your link and then go straight to my cart, do you get credit? So far, I haven’t seen any sort of statement that you are getting anything πŸ™

    An awesome Kindle requires awesome content. I’ve found this to be a step in the right direction:

    I’m waiting for a real Linux tablet. Yeah, I know Android is Linux, but I want something not joined at the hip to Google.

    In fact, my criterion is a tablet with an OS not by Microsoft, Apple, or Google. There’s been an Ubuntu Linux tablet in the works forever, or so it seems. So far no joy.

    Oh well… goes a Legos Star Wars thing and a Totoro thing…..

    I’d love if all your readers starting buying my books through your Amazon portal. It’d make us all happy! πŸ˜›

    It’s not native Linux per se, but it’s more flexible than carrier Android loads:
