Yes, it's good for the Fire (ES File Explorer). Sorry for the delay - I only just read your message.
This makes me happy!

I do. It is primarily the principle of the thing, but some of the mistakes made by publishers are frustrating enough that I am motivated to work around them.

I don't run into this problem often, but I certainly don't doubt you. For me, Barnes & Noble's selection and pricing has been comparable, and I buy most of my non-fiction book directly from the publisher, anyway.

B/N doesn't have NEARLY the content of AMazon. So while they might have what YOU want, amazon has much, much more -available-.

Yes, they should work fine. But, they haven't confirmed that they would all be available!
I find that scenario very unlikely.

Just got an update on the Amazon App Store this morning. It now looks like the pics in the Fire. So I believe the KF will use the same app.

Yeah, I just updated it on my Galaxy Tab, and it looks like the Kindle Fire screenshots. It looks more refined now, and I like the overall UI.

The Kindle Fire drives a sleigh pulled by reindeer and lides down peoples chimneys and eats thier cookies while leaving accessories for all the other little Kindle devices and everyone is merry singing Kindle Carols.

Can the nook color do that?

That's great. I'll finally have a device with Hulu Plus. It's ridiculous the app is for a few select devices in the Android Market.
