A late post is better then no post at all right? It is Christmas day and I spent the morning with my family opening gifts with the kids; my son and his girl friend coming last night and we exchanged gifts with them then. Of course you are not here to read about my Holiday but I thought I would share that with you to know that I am just a normal guy writing a normal blog.

So did anyone else get any new cool devices or camera gear for Christmas? That’s my lead in to what I got. I received the new Kindle Paper White, this is just what I asked for and my wife never let’s me down. So I thought I would give my first impressions after sending a few of my books to the device.

I turned it on and it is just as they say a nice soft lit reading device. The pages turn really easily by just lightly touching the screen. I always like to send my books to the Kindle by using the email address that Amazon attaches to the device. I had the $69.00 device now since last Christmas and it still works well, I just wanted to upgrade to the new device. If you get one and notice some dark areas at the bottom of the screen this is due to the LED lights shinning up on the page and everyone says it is normal and will kind of fade after some use. And there is a experimental web browser on the device so that you can browse the web in black and white but it is still cool! I will report some other time as to how long the battery really lasts. I am ordering a case today from Amazon, if you order one look for the cast that is $15.00, you don’t need to buy the one for $49.00, this one will still turn off the device when you close the case.

Please comment and let me know what kind of devices you received for this Holiday season I would like to know what you might have received. Well time to go back to out Holiday family time.
