I recently acquired a Kindle Fire tablet. It's been less than a week that I've had it, but I'm already annoyed by the amount of vendor tie-in that comes with the device. I'll be turning this tablet computer into the kind of device that I like over the next few weeks. I've started by looking over a few videos that advise on "rooting" or "jailbreaking" a Kindle Fire. For now, I'm distrustful of these and I'll be sticking to the use of official Android developer tools and a few others that seem useful.
