Question about reading FR on a Kindle. There is a lot of white space on the right when reading FR on my Kindle. Is there anyway to get rid of all the white space so the screen is filled up with text?
No that never works.
don’t look at it...
THAT, was quick....and hilarious.
Spot on Laddie!
i was wandering around an apple store and noticed the
and there a new owner of the just-recently i-pad demanded
to know how to open the thing.
Joke aside, did you click “f” to go to full screen mode?
When did the Kindle acquire a web browser?
You hate whitey now?
I should add this happens when reading the list of articles. Reading the articles themselves is fine.
Ping to 8, responded to the wrong post
How are you getting it on your Kindle?
Kindle 3 has web browser.
Sell it and buy an iPad. Problem loved.

Are you logged in?
Yes, logged in.
Also try this in FR as I think the old Kindle browser can’t handle the side bar.
On the top of FR, go to Account > Manage Blocks > disable all the sidebar blocks. This should give you just the main page with nothing on the side.
Second generation does also. I read FR on it all the time at work.
My first generation kindle has a browser.
Not sure what you mean. The white space seems to be an artifact of the boxes on the right at the top. Once you scroll past those there is half the screen filled with white space.
(((ping))) for what it is worth.
I’m anti tech. We really need to get away from this digital age. How much tech can we absorb? It’s great getting away from it all. What are you doing to get away from it all? I’m done, we don’t need it anymore.
Where are you at?
I’d like to figure out how to get alerts or pings on my Droid.
OK, I was able to fix it by moving the sidebar blocks to the top. All is good now. This only works when logged in though. Thanks much. I use my Kindle Bible at church and need to look things up sometimes.
Set it to stune.
black duct tape
lol, I’ve noticed at church (the little I actually go) that the number of folks using iPads, Kindles and other tabs are increasing. Although, I wonder how many are actually playing Angry Birds.
Can you send email from it?
Trade your Kindle in on an iPad. That’s what I’m using, too.
And, if recent news articles are to be believe, the new Kindle will be $299.00 in a couple of months.
We heard the Angry Birds theme song start up in church la few weeks ago. My daughter and the boy in front of her were dying laughing. Not literally, of course.
OK I’ll display my ignorance. What’s FR? I’ll really be bummed when I find out it was something I knew all along.
BTW.....Sent from my new Nook Color.
Thanks in advance.
I got the Kindle for my birthday so I didn’t have to pay anything for it. Since then I haven’t bought a single thing to read on it. I do have over a hundred free books on it. An iPad is out of my price range at this time. The bad economy has made the business I am at lay people off and those that are left have had several wage cuts.
FR = Free Republic ie. what you are reading now.
1) Write your post on a piece of paper.
2) Mail the piece of paper to the address at the bottom of this page.
3) Jim Rob will open your letter and using thumbtacks stick your piece of paper on a cork board in his office.
4) Anyone who wants to read your post will travel to Fresno to read it in Jim Rob's office.
5) They can then respond by writing their response on another piece of paper and tacking it up on the cork board next to yours.
6) Every time we all come to his office to read Free Republic, Jim Rob can hit us up for contributions to buy more cork boards.
That low tech enough for you?
better get a grip on your life...Jesus wasn't kidding when He founded the church, and to intentionally ignore Him seems unreasonably dangerous. To each his own, but I'd suggest getting in touch with your creator.....it can do no harm and more good than you can imagine!!!
Tech is good, but many people need to dial it back.
It's getting to be a genuine rarity to run into someone in public and make eye contact with them and smile and say "Hi." More often than not, they're plugged into their iPod or texting away as they walk and grinning like a fool at some tiny screen in front of them.
I saw one girl sitting at a bus stop look up, startled, as her bus sped past her. If she hadn't been listening to her iPod, she would have noticed it and not missed it.
I almost had an accident on an escalator the other day. The woman in front of me was moving verrrry verrry slowly up the stairs and I thought she wouldn't disembark in time and I'd end up in a horrible accident falling backwards. What was she doing? Texting.
Oh, and this is CA, where drivers aren't supposed to be on handheld cell phones but this is roundly ignored. Drive at your own risk.
Mine with 3g does this as well.... Not as good as a ipad but works very well.... 188$ version has the 3G browser. Not sure of other generations of the kindle.
Did you know you can hack these things? If you have an outdoor job and have a little time for reading at lunch you might want to look into Kindle. They depend on ambient light (since they use e-ink) and that makes them very useful outside in daylight.
I'm looking forward to the total e-ink experience where you put it up like wall paper on all your walls. Then you tune in the color and texture you want. I'm going to ask for Jurassic Park Green ~ complete with images of dinosaurs grazing on trees over in the distance.
We sighted a guy doing the hand motions characteristic of playing Angry Birds.
Demonstrating can be pretty boring ~
