This is one of those non bead blog rants, so I apologize to all of The Hive readers expecting bead news...
I've been wanting, wanting, ok, COVETING a KINDLE ebook reader for months and months and months.
I finally manifested a comparable model that ALSO had Facebook access, email access, and HAD photo AND music files so I could have a portfolio slideshow right there at my fingertips, along with family photos, etc. THOSE were the selling points of this model, rather than the actual Kindle. I read books almost as much as I bead, but having those extras was a BONUS. Ha. Likely story.
After fighting and stressing over it for 4 days - it's going back to the store where it came from. And I HOPE they will give me a CASH REFUND (I paid cash - I want cash). I am very disappointed that after all that, the Pandigital brand does not support my email provider. And you can't do much on it without the email - that's how you import the photos and music, and of course - CHECK EMAIL.
I've spent part of today re - researching not only the Kindle, but also the Barnes & Noble Nook. Both nice, but neither have the extras of photo and music or EMAIL. So - onward - and upward. I'm now looking at upgrading and changing my prepaid phone to a fancy schmancy ADULT phone - the Samsung Fascinate. WOW. I have a friend that owns one. It's like a playground in your hand! It does EVERYTHING! FREE apps for recipes, decorating, and I bet, even beading if I look for one.
May still attempt to get that Kindle someday - although the library does still provides me with as many great books as I want - FOR FREE.
TTFN - sorry bout the rant. Next one will be bead related - I promise!
