Got a Kindle for Christmas. I can't believe this thing is so popular. It's slow. Managing books is abysmal. Why the hell can't I hide books, instead of deleting them (losing them forever)? The only thing I can say good about it is battery life.

I think if you delete a book, you can download it again without paying. But I do think it's deliberately slow because they want it to have an immensely long battery life, particularly on the models which use e-paper and have no backlight. They basically consume zero battery except when you are flipping pages.

It shows you every book in your collection, whether it's on your Kindle or not. You can hide things in groups, but that's a pain. If you delete, it deletes.

That's weird. Mine has a separation between downloaded and entire library. I wonder if it just doesn't like you.

Well, I guess it senses my hostility.

I can certainly see your kindle doing the following:

and no it's not a RickRoll.

All of Ragnar's electronic gadgets eventually become sentient and try to kill him. That's one of the reasons he keeps armor-piercing bullets around.

There's a reason I threw that iPod out the window.....

Are you sure that it wasn't throwing itself out the window due to what it was forced to hold and then listen to?

It's the new Apple iDefenestrator. It creates a smooth pane of glass with perfect bevels, and then throws itself through it.

My wife asked me why I keep a gun. I said, "Transformers." She laughed, I laughed, the toaster laughed... I shot the toaster.

I've heard that joke tons of times.  I still laugh at it each time.

I bought an axe and a crowbar a couple of days ago. Do they count as gadgets?

Nope...those are tools for the Home Handyman room.

IG - They only count as gadgets if you use them to beat the toaster.

You have not watched that Small Warriors movie. You don't use piercing bullets to kill sentient machines off. You use EMP !

If I had an EMP weapon ... well let's just say the Internet would become a much better place.

Because it wouldn't have Facebook and Twitter. I'd give Google 30 days to unfuck YouTube.

Youtube is beyond any possibility of atonement of salvation.
It is full of influencers, youtuber wannabes and helspawn maggots. And they put advertisements everywhere so you will suffer if you are not careful.
