Yesterday, Santa Claus came and gave me what I really wanted – the $199 Kindle Fire from Amazon. The Fire has been under harsh criticism the past few weeks after its initial release  - the power button was placed in an inconvenient location, it was too easy to access one’s private material, and there was no external volume control.

In the video review below, I address some of these concerns in addition to my experience with Day 1 of the Kindle Fire.
