The Amazon Kindle: Fire. Let it burn


Issues have arisen lately about Google’s ad Words and Facebook’s website monitors. These cyber security breaches are dwarfed by the coming of the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet.

The Kindle: Fire is equipped with Amazon silk; a new proxy server for mobile devices hosted by Amazon. Amazon Silk is the greatest of security violations because the service requires direct monitoring of websites and secure servers.

Developers believe that the Kindle: Fire with its Silk browser will revolutionize the mobile browsing experience with possibly twice the speed of the current market. Many critics have flashed out against the Amazon Fire since its release last Wednesday.

  1. It’s seriously pathetic that a company will exploit unaware customers to use their browser. Several people will probably use this because, yes, it probably will be A LITTLE bit faster than other browsers (even though I highly doubt it will be very noticeable), and second, they probably think that security isn’t an issue. So for the people who either aren’t aware or just don’t care about security, this browser will look really appealing to them. However, for the computer/Internet browser savvy people who actually do know about all the security threats, Amazon Silk is just insulting…

  2. There will be an option to turn it off. I am thinking we shouldn’t burn it at the stake quite just yet, since it is not even out yet. The Kindle Fire looks like it will be the first quality tablet that everyone can get, which also means if there are any problems with Silk it will get plenty of heat.

  3. It bothers me knowing that they’ll basically be keeping tabs on everything I would do. Though, if sidewinder12s is correct about being able to turn it off, that’d be less of an issue.

    As I’m not really following the tablet market (I personally hate the things), I’m unaware of where the Kindle Fire will sit compared to others.
