It's an open secret that I love my Kindle, my very old 2nd generation Kindle... that's right, it came out in February, 2009.
This thing has taken a beating. Just to clarify, I don't use it to discipline my dog, or other drivers who refuse to 'stay right except to pass' on the highway... what I mean is, I've burned out 1 Macbook and 2 Macbook Pro laptops since I've had the Kindle.
It was repaired at one point, 'cause the screen went wonky, but this thing has been great. The screen is chipped, the plastic casing is cracked in several places, but it would not die.
Until last night.
Soft & hard resets did nothing, and I eventually did crack open the back and pushed a pen into the 'reset' hole inside. Yeah, technically that voids the warrantee, but I'm pretty sure that warrantee ran out four years ago.
Unfortunately, my Frankensteinian ambitions were for naught.
So, rest in peace, fair Kindle.
I promise to love your replacement as faithfully as I did you.
