By problems I mean freezing up and never starting again, refusing to wake from sleep, refusing to restart after being shut down, long colorful lines where the ugly grey shelves should be, and not being able to start apps from the alternative launcher. I have not yet studied a batch of fresh KF with absolutely no books installed, but I planned to.
My stomach hurts from laughing. Thank you. This is the sterile clinical study that seems to be required since (personal experience not being valid). Come round more often.

I've asked him to try to make it available somewhere for us to purchase. He says he's overseas and can't go through Amazon because they don't allow any apps from overseas.
It would be really neat to try that out.

Powers of deduction
you are:

1. From LA
2. your Sheldoesque habit of reading every single post before you delurk
3. your "clinic"
4. your penchant for breaking things so you can fix them
5. who else can afford a "batch" of Kindle Fires so he can mess them up and fix them, Bill Gates?

Holy sh** ba**S Batman. I AM your fan. Please check in with me on FB YM or BookHaunts before you reply on the other thread. I'm uncomfortable about something.
