New Reading Devices and Technology Wars

I have had a Kindle now for about 2 years. Really like it, Now thinking of upgrading to  the new Fire.  Does any one have one? I am interested in the color aspect of it and also love the ability of having one account that I can tap into.

With technology one has to decided whether to stay up with it or stay in the past. Recently I started getting the daily Reuters  paper on my Kindle. Reading up on all the technology wars and the new inventions, got me thinking it is time to upgrade. The cost will go down as more Power tech Wars happens.

This War between Samsung and Apple is getting to out of hands. I do not want to get either one. The  fear I have is that the courts will decided that one company will not be able to service  a device. I do not know how most people feel but, It seems to me the there just could be other developers learning things at the same time. This is a world of Smart and Tech Savvy people. Now I fear Apple will start going after more developers just trying to corner the market. In the USA we have a  monopoly law. I think Apple is trying to became a Monopoly in the Tech World. I am one that is against this.

One last word of thought.....I do not see the TV makers doing this and there are a lot of them that are the same.

ReadingTime Magazine on Kindle

Time magazine has been delivered to my Kindle for a year now. It first wasn't sure I would like it. However I have really enjoyed reading it. Getting the magazine on my Kindle has turn out to be a joy. It arrives one week prior to the release date. I read it every Sunday. That's the day it arrives.

Have been thinking of getting a couple more. Just figuring out which one I would like to read is the hardest. Now I know there is a new kindle called Fire. Just not sure about getting that one yet. Heard it has a monthly fee. My Kindle do not have one and I can decided on what I want to pay for. Not ready to have another monthly bill add to my life.

Now with the Time magazine, they give a web page to go to for more info on certain articles. I like that part of the program. Really do not miss the photos. They still show the cover and some of the photos. Although it would be nice to see it in Color, I do not mind the B&W form.

Do you read magazine on line? Which ones? What magazine are you interested in?
