All the reports about the KIndle Fire competing with the IPad are so much crap. It's a downright lie and Amazon should be ashamed for promoting it that way. The only way that Amazon can compete with Apple IMO is as a closed source screw the consumer's choice kind of business model. I have no doubt the Nook Color will continue to be light years ahead of the Fire. Amazon, given their use of the closed source .mobi format over epub for one thing, is going to force their customers into a box just like Apple does. I'm sure the bootloader will be locked on this thing, so goodby custom ROMs. No expandable storage? That's total BS, their way of forcing you to use their cloud storage I'm sure.
Now, give me an unlocked bootloader and CM7 running on it and we'll see, though the lack of expandable storage is a huge downside. Their gonna have to come up with a very impressive processor and RAM to make up for that!
I think comparing it the IPad is going to bite them in the ass, though. Once it's out and people buy it and see there is no comparison I guess they'll just shrug and say hey, it's still a good deal for $199! Now the Asus Transformer, there's some competition....
Sorry for the rant. I'm procrastinating.

I will get it when the bootloader is unlocked. Otherwise I'm still for the nook

I do think the time to start thinking about this is now. If the time comes when we have renewable, sustainable, abundant energy then automation will increase rapidly and work as we know it will change radically.

Omnimo theme for Rainmeter creates a fantastic touchscreen interface. Great for any desktop really. I could play for hours!

Story
Introduction
Known also as Donnie, I grew up in SC and I'm now living on Long Island.

I'm a Respiratory Therapist in a couple of community hospitals, working 5 to 6 12 hour night shifts a week.  On my breaks I'm studying for my RN degree.

I have three awesome kids who teach me something new about myself and humanity in general every day, usually several times a day.  They are the light in my life and the thorn in my side!!  They are young as well, so they are still a lot of work.

I love gadgets and computers.  I have used the powers of the internets to learn how to build and repair computers, do some basic networking and coding, and generally break things and spend hours trying to fix them.  I am an android fanboy, I have to admit.  You may see some anti-apple rants from time to time as well, though I've chilled quite a bit on all that.

Any problems were minor. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. I stayed with 3 small kids and had no problems. The breakfast was surprisingly good as well. We will definitely be booking ahead and staying here when we travel south
