      I think I'm going to buy a kindle fire... Barnes & Nobles nook customers complain too much.

            Yes, but we're so witty and entertaining when we complain. Unlike many of the Kindle folks, who are just plain nasty.

             

            Seriously, though, be sure to read the Kindle forums too.

                If you do get a kindle, I'm sure you will find there are

                things kindle owners complain about too..

                 

                But you will probably want to stay with the B & N forums...

                I ventured over to the KindleBook forum for a couple weeks...

                and I still haven't quite recovered.  They are like a pack of wolves!

                    I think this is true of any user forums. Have you ever been on a smartphone user forum when people felt that the manufacturer "owed" them an upgraded OS and they either didn't get one or it was released later than they thought it should be? Those boards get so ridiculous that you need full body armor on just to read the posts!! Lawsuits are threatened, mods are cussed out and called names, and Facebook pages are made..........if it didn't get so hostile and scary, it would be funny!!

                     

                    If you attempt to research any electronic device before you purchase it by reading user forums, chances are you will never buy ANY device! So, my guess is that the OP should probably stay away from the forums until she actually makes a purchase and has questions regarding the use of that device...LOL

                  You could just skip the posts that don't interest you. SInce this is B&N's support forum, you shouldn't be too shocked to find problems  (real and preceived) being discussed here. I'm sure you'll find this to be true on any support forum.

                    I feel their is some validity to the OP point. A significant number of the complaint posts seem uneccessarialy nasty. Explaining what you have a concern about, expressing your frustration and how you feel things could be improved is what mature people do. Internet forums seem to have significant numbers who act like toddlers. Cheap shots at BN, other posters, inability to recognize others point of view may have merit. Self serving arguments and points of view are expressed with fanatical zeal, behavior that outside of the online world would be considered evidence of borderline personality disorders or worse is exhibited on almost a daily basis.

                      China Doll,

                       

                      I guess all I can say is seeya!

                       

                      If you aren't happy, then by all means leave and go to a kindle fire.  There are complaints with evey consumer product.  Get real!

                        I bet if we go to the kindle fire forum he is saying the same thing about kindle owners!  lol

                              Both are good devices but Kindle Fire is built for movies and music also and you can bypass security settings to download android apps without having to root or buy an extra n2a card.
