    Or would the Kindle Touch be better? Gosh, wish I could see them in person.

    Okay, so I'm really bummed now. I was set on getting a Kindle Fire. It seemed like exactly what I am looking for. Mr BRS was even looking at them for me for Christmas. Then he stumbled across something that said Kindle doesn't support proxy servers. What does that mean? It means I couldn't use it at school. He was so sweet to be looking at them for me too.

    It's not compatible with proxy servers, so no I couldn't use the wi-fi at school because the entire system is run on a proxy server.

    Yeah, it is dumb. I looked around online and there are quite a few people who are upset about it. They said that they tried it out at home and everything worked great. But then they took it to work or school with them where it was a proxy server and couldn't get online.

    This is a review on Amazon:

    I'm normally *very* happy with Amazon products and customer support.

    Kindle Fire doesn't support proxy servers making it a brick at work. Proxy servers are a common security approach at corporations, colleges, and schools. It cannot be ignored. And I'm peeved this wasn't made clear at BestBuy, Amazon.com, or the technical specifications.

    Amazon's stance that the Fire is an "entertainment" device that has no need for http proxy support. This stance ignores several obvious user scenarios:
    - Use Kindle for software book for reference at work
    - Use Kindle for music at work
    - Use Kindle for private email at work
    - Proxy servers are common at corporations, colleges and schools

    The public stance on http proxy support gives me no comfort that it will be solved anytime soon. And why wasn't this made very clear at BestBuy, on Amazon.com, or the Kindle Fire technical specifications.

    Further, the Silk browser *frequently* failed to load websites (like ign.com), while IE on my PC (on same network) had no problems.

    I've returned my Kindle Fire to BestBuy and bought another tablet costing $200 more.

    I just looked up the new Nook Color. It has the same problem.

    You know, I Googled it and Googled it and I can't find any information on that. I don't know if it is proxy server compatible or not.

    K, so the lady at Barnes and Noble seemed to think you could use the Nook Tablet with a proxy server. I tried it out at the store to see how it did with PDF files. Not too bad, but the text was pretty small so it was hard to highlight stuff. They said that they would be coming out with a stylus soon. I had read about other reader apps that you can buy and people seem to think one in particular works better than the built-in one. But there isn't any way to know unless I got it and tried it out.

    I love my Vera Bradley hand bag, so I would go with Handbag versus Ipad.


    Thanks,
