    It was on Black Friday sale for $49.99 so I got this:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01J94SWWU/

    I have had the Fire 7" for some time and like it, this is a cool step up.
    Really can't afford it but I ordered and received it before I actually realized what I was doing..
    I use it as a reader and to play music with a bluetooth speaker in my garage, watch videos (much better with the 8", it makes a big difference).

    I will give the 7" to Mom - she has a Kindle 3g which was perfect for her as she can buy ebooks without wifi; however she has become unenamoured with paying $14.99 each for them and the battery is about gone.

    With the fire I will load pirated books she wants for her free, I think she's going to like that.
    Also I hope it will pique and hold her interest as she seems to be ever so slowly losing interest in things generally.

    Dollar Menu Makes a Comeback

    1$ cheeseburgers and McChickens again!

    Cheap bastards have spoken!

    If they make it back to McDoubles and small fries for $1 again, as well as $1 double cheeses at BK I'll be happy as a tornado in a trailer park.

    Finally got around to sanding and finishing this





    Hidden compartment and everything.

    Made from leftover construction scrap, it cost me about $10 in hardware to build.
    Made some Big Funny Mistakes and plowed on anyway, see if you can spot them

    the biggest mistake i can see is building in a secret compartment, then plastering a picture of said secret compartment on the interwebs
