So, my son Ben presented me, at my birthday a couple of weeks ago, with a certificate informing me that he had purchased a Kindle Touch for me. Thank you, Ben.
It arrived yesterday, and I am still forming impressions. However, the following sequence of events just took place:
1) I was on Karen's laptop in the kitchen, using the home wifi. Earlier this morning, I sent an email to a friend (you know who you are) discussing the Touch and asking about his new Kindle Fire.
2) Leaving the laptop on, I went into the living room with the Kindle, and was busy browsing and downloading free eBooks. Using the funky browser on the Kindle, I was able to get into my Gmail account, and tapped out a reply to my friend, as an experiment (cc: to myself). It seemed to work.
3) very soon after, I heard a 'ding' from the kitchen, announcing the arrival of an email.
4) using my cellphone (Android Galaxy S), I quickly got into my regular email and saw the item I had just sent from the Kindle and heard announced on the laptop.
5) I am writing this on our Acer netbook, which is normally signed onto my Gmail account, rather than Karen's laptop (which is normally signed into hers)..
I need to get this posted, so I can load some MP3s and other audio onto my teeny MP3 player (that also has an FM radio), that I will be taking to LA next week for Thanksgiving.
This is getting out of hand.
