  1. I’d like to know what if anything the iPad folks consume in greater quantities.

    My Fire has seen a good bit of stream through Netflix and Hulu. Amazon Instant is notably absent from that list because their pricing is just high enough, that I won’t rent/buy a video impulsively. I’ve primarily used the Fire for books, magazines and streaming radio.

    Interestingly, these are things I could have been doing for months/years with my Android phone/tablet, but generally didn’t. The Fire has done a great job of getting me to take the all important first hit.

    I don’t doubt that’s exactly what Amazon intended.

    • I’m doing the same thing. A fair amount of Netflix. Stuff that I could have done on my laptop for years but almost never have. The modest sized screen is very convenient and appears quite sharp, so I watch content during breakfast or when I just feel like vegging out.
