I am a gadget freak, but I still have my 2004 car, and when I mentioned to my husband that it would be expensive to get the roof fixed (it is a convertible), he just looked at me. He is a car freak - can control himseld for 6 years or so, but then, even though we said 10, he is ready for a new car. Sorry, mine is fine until they come out with a purple hardtop convertible.
I love sitting down and reading instruction booklets (I know, they are few and far between these days), and setting up my devices. I will definately go with the lighted kindle, and if the fire has anything I want, I might bite. I am really looking for a new computer - my daughter could use this ultrabook. I have my eye on a Surface (worst name ever?) - I need something that has java, so I can connect to work. But that market is so immature, there will be something new in a few months.
