    Hello

    Hi Everyone.. my name is Faye, and I just registered in. Just put in my order for the Amazon Fire, which is my Christmas gift this year I am really excited. Wanted a e-reader and was going to get a basic kindle.. but the Fire offers so much more for the price.. touch screen and all. Couldn't afford the IPad, so this seems the next best thing. Problem is: I am an older person, and a bit slow to catch on with all the new technology. Can someone give me some guidance in simple terms? I don't have a router.. so I figure I will need that unless I want to sit in McDonald's or Jack In the Box all day.. Right? Can someone advise me which one to get? I have a computer with high speed internet via cable (comcast).. I prefer to buy a router outright rather to pay a monthly service fee. I posted a thread under Help.. check it out. Thanks all you Tech Heads out there

    Whatever you learn.. pass it on please. I am so tech-illiterate! Thinking about starting a group for newbies.. at least beginners to this stuff could band together. Need to get a few good friends on the site for support and help.. anyone interested?

    Our forum is still quite small, and we can all help, but when we get a tad bigger, you can also create a 'Group' ("Fire Newbies"?) by selecting the 'Community' tab/dropdown, and select Groups. Then click 'Create Group'...

    Hope you are enjoying your Fire. Don't worry about being older, older people can figure these out!
