I am starting to wonder.

I do not trust any off site storage, everything that is digital is stored on removable media or external drives. So It will not be lost at a keystroke or electronic "Burp".

I sort of live my life by the "KISS" principle and it works for me.

Right now I am looking at this case. It's the only one I've seen I kind of like. It has a hand hold too.
Nice. That's the one that I had for my KF. I thought it was great. I have that one for my GTab 2 7.0 (GTab version obviously)

I have this case for the KF HD (http://www.amazon.com/Marware-Genuin...ndle+fire+case) - I had a Marware case for my v.1 KF and loved it. It has a hand strap of the cover that is very useful. The really stupid thing about it is you have to have the cover open to charge it! When the cover is closed, the ports are covered (see image 2) - NOT the case with the v.1 cover.

If it had a hand strap it would be perfect - I looked at it but opted for the case with a hand strap - I read a lot one handed and have some boisterous cats prone to jump on/off my lap - my reader must be securely anchored to my hand.

I'm not. I'm one of those people who doesn't keep every single app, book, or movie on my device though. Even the K1 had more than enough storage for me.

Not me. 16GB is plenty to hold side-loaded media consisting of a few properly encoded videos, a bunch of mp3 albums, tons of books, magazines, and comics, as well as a variety of apps.

That being said, if the KFHD was going to be my one and only tablet, then I would've chosen the 32GB model. I have found that 32GB is the minimum for me.

While my cats are not allowed in my bedroom I like the hand strap I have on my K4B Eco-flip case so I can see getting a case with one for the Kindle Fire. The case I have now is so flimsy that it sort of works as a hand hold. Once hubby gets the old Fire I may need to put a protector and silicon skin on it instead. He's brutal on devices.

I'd love to upgrade, but as a Mac user, it looks like Calibre won't be able to connect to the HD fires. Sadness....

I never connect my KF to a Computer. I just email the books to it or use Send to Kindle. If I want to sideload a book I use Dropbox. Calibre isn't a problem.

Why keep something like that from upgrading?

Android File Transfer works fine on the Mac. It isn't as elegant as native mass storage support, but it works just fine. It just requires manually sideloading the files.

And it might be possible to conjure up a little utility to dummy up a disk interface to AFT... ie. a little wedge driver that fools Calibre (or any other app for that matter) into thinking that AFT is a disk.

All in all, upgrading is worth the added inconvenience, IMO.

See? This is why I appreciate this group.

I've never emailed a book to myself, I've always used Calibre. Thanks for showing me another way!

I'm still wavering about upgrading - mostly due to waiting for an impending ipad mini announcement....

Thanks again, group!

Well the new iPod touch is $300. I'm not counting on the price of the mini to be attractive to me.

One can tweak away with the original Fire BUT the screen and sound on the kfhd are very very nice.

Blossom,

I have the Kindle FireHD and I was like you in that I had the Marware case for my Fire v1. Liked the handstrap. BUT the one thing the Amazon case has that I find to be wonderful is magnets the new FireHD uses the iPad like magnets feature to put the FireHD to sleep!

very cool!
