Kindle Fire: The Missing Manual--New from O'Reilly Media
Sebastopol, CA—Enter a bright new world of entertainment with Amazon's red hot tablet. Kindle Fire: The Missing Manual (O'Reilly Media, $19.99 USD) lights the way with lots of illustrations and step-by-step instructions for browsing the Web, emailing, playing games, and viewing books, movies, and magazines in blazing color.
"The Fire is deceptively powerful," says author Peter Meyers (@petermeyers). "Though it's got only a few physical buttons, underneath its sleek, simple exterior lies a machine that can do as much as a 'real' computer. It's a Kindle so, of course, you can buy and read ebooks. But because it's a multi-purpose tablet, that's just one of its many talents."
Meyers continues, "With this Missing Manual you'll learn about all the Fire's nooks and crannies. But what's more valuable, you'll find out which apps and options work best and which items are still works in progress. You'll also get real-world counsel on how to beef up the Fire's still-developing talents with third-party apps."
Kindle Fire: The Missing Manual will walk you through all of the important stuff you need to know:
- Read all about it. Find, load, and read a variety of ebooks, magazines, and newspapers.
- Go online. Browse the Web and manage email with a secure Wi-Fi connection.
- Put on a show. Watch movies and TV series, and showcase your photos and videos.
- Fill up your jukebox. Listen to your favorite music from Amazon and iTunes.
- Load up on apps. Get popular games, guides, references, and more with Amazon's Apps for Android.
- Take your briefcase. Read PDFs, Word files, Excel spreadsheets, and other docs.
