I used to think my Amazon Kindle was a SuperStar! Then the Kindle DX crashed my party, and I swore I’d never buy another Kindle — and I have not. I read Kindle books on my iPhone and on my delightful iPad. I like a bright, backlit, screen because I spend a lot of time in dark places like theatres and dank basements and editing rooms and recording bays — so the Kindle’s need for direct light in order to be read is a real problem for me — especially eyes age and the need for greater illumination grows. I still use my Kindle to occasionally browse the sale rack on Amazon, and that means I have to infrequently recharge my Kindle. The other day, when I plugged my Kindle in to the Amazon power source shown in the image below, I got a mild tingling in my fingers: My Kindle electroshocked me! My eyes rolled back into my head as I shook off the bite.
