try hands on instapaper text, readable & clearly, instapaper is simple to use,  clearly is great, readable requires lots of tinkering, you can apply the bookmarklet to pad or phone chrome, here is screen cut of my readable setting

this post is from my kindle fire. 看, 中文输入没问题, 我用的是谷歌拼音。1. i get my kindle fire rooted. 2. android market ia accessible. so i can side load (install) any software i like, no restrictions. 3. google pinyin is selected as my default keyboard. 3. i use go launcher ex to view all app hidden by amazon, e.g android market. i assume amazon don't like you to use it.

sometimes, i hate typing chinese as i am not that frequent, lot of hicups that interfere my thinking, or because you have to correct spelling right away word per word, no spacing btw words, not like english, you just foucus on writing, even some words you can spell that time, but you can leave it there and come back latter on and you can use spell checker. chinese is not computer friendly, that's my conclusion. one more thing, our email are all in english in company. so i am terrible in chinese typing. i feel much comfortable to type english. it's a pity as i am a chinese.

i achieved 3 goals for my kindle fire. 1. get it rooted, and android market is accessible. 2. enable 3rd party keyboard, so i can use Chinese input. 3. vpn is not working on kindle fire, but i find out a workaround, to use vpn based router. now i am satisfied with my kindle fire, portable, better resolution than ipad2, powerful and speedy. it's worth the $. 199.

Yes, but you will need a VPN enabled router.

it's true that you can set up vpn on a router, then connect your kindle fire to the router thru wifi, then you can visit facebook, youtube etc. i use tplink, model#TL-WR703N.
step#1: link TL-WR703N to LAN port of another router
step#2: ensure IP range for TL-WR703N is different from another route, i use 172.168.1.1.
step#3: pls use wireless router model (there is 3g route, Access point mode)
step#4: connect your pc or kindle fire to TL-WR703N in auto way, or dynamic IP.
step#5: ensure you pc or kindle fire connect to internet.
step#6: in one of setting (try it out yourself, i can't recall exact menu), pls select L2TP,, then enter vpn server, user name & password.
step#7: you may need to re-start your router, then you are OK to go.

attached is my mini router, i think it's great as it's powerful & in compact size.

you can use ucweb hd for kindle fire. in order to boost up browsing speed of buildin browser,pls try following, turn off page loading acceleration(So called silk), Turn off addin( flash), use optimization for mobile,not desktop. hope this help. so far i am happy with my kindle fire. the only pain in the ass is vpn is disabled, and i haven't figure out a workaround.

Story
Introduction
A Pragmatist & Optimist

I enjoy reading history, biographies, documentary, I don't like fiction things as fake things never turn on my interest.

I'm keen on reading technology columns, recently I try to build my interest in finance.

I found Steve Jobs is inspiring, I love the quote "stay foolish & stay hungry", so i can always get interested in new things & keep improving myself intellectually. But I highly prioritize my health, so I'll not sacrifice my health to achieve career success.

I try to avoid "cynical view" of society, my philosophy is to be a health doubter, but think positively. Things will get better if we have trust in ourselves & people around.

Stay Balanced & Stay Health

I enjoy delicious food, but with a focus on nutrition & calory control.

I'd like to control stress level at bay, so as to maintain a work & life balance.

I love swimming, walking & biking, so as to keep myself fit.

A Geek

I love playing digital gadgets, I have kindle 3, Ipad2, nexus one, Pentax K10D (SLR camera), a Sony DV  camcorder (as it's been ignore for some time, i can't recall the model)


Finally I hope I can meet great friends on Google +.
