Quick Note: Kindle Fire Update

December 14, 2011

Today’s Quick Note is “As Kindle Fire Faces Critics, Remedies Are Promised” in the New York Times. By David Streitfeld, the article discusses Amazon’s promise to quickly update the Kindle Fire to correct some usability issues that have vexed owners. Streitfeld summarizes the key issues in this excerpt:

A few of their many complaints: there is no external volume control. The off switch is easy to hit by accident. Web pages take a long time to load. There is no privacy on the device; a spouse or child who picks it up will instantly know everything you have been doing. The touch screen is frequently hesitant and sometimes downright balky.
