The kindle’s battery lasts very long up to 18 hours.

It has no camera but wifi and a microphone.

You can not take out the battery and you can apparently NOT switch it off.

I tried it – when you keep the power button (on the bottom next to the microphone) pressed – it starts blinking green – it starts blinking yellow – then reboots.

#BigBrotherAward #OrwellAwards the perfect surveillance tool.

Trust Amazon! They surely will NOT analyze your life – noooooo – after entering your Wifi password and amazon details – you can also link it to Facebook and Twitter. „Great“.

taking out the battery of some kindles requires a hair dryer?

Not even a hair dryer will help you with taking out the battery of a „Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2 (2013) WLAN“ that i got from ebay for 60€ – because it is a completely sealed case. no slits. Congratulations to Amazon and Apple for completely dissalowing any battery change in their devices. This is true freedom as in capitalism (financial dictatorship).

i think i put it into a plastic bag and in the fridge… until it passes out. then sell it again.

i dunno if it’s fun to run Debian with 1x CPU core on it but…

„If it’s connected to a network, Amazon can update my firmware remotely at any time without asking me first, possibly changing the device’s behavior in undesirable ways. They can spy on my reading (how would I know?), delete my books, etc.“

„Under the hood Amazon’s firmware updates are just glorified shell scripts in a proprietary package format that contains an embedded Amazon signature.“


ps: Yes you can take out the battery but it’s surely not meant to. and will surely void your warranty.
