It's similar but doesn't have all the apps found on the Google Play Store.

Hi,

I'm googling and trying to find the newest articles discussing the
differences between fire tablets and ipads.

What can yall tell me about the differences. Before I end this,
hopefully the question not asked is "Well, depends what you are
using it for."

Just quick questions, and feel free to unload with your general
answer, but can you practically do the same thing on a fire tablet
like what you can do on an ipad?

Download apps, surf the net, check email, things like that.

Unless the google hit was incorrect, I am seeing a $50 fire tablet
out there now.

I mean, if it can do what I just listed, I'll save $150 for
purchasing a fire tablet smile.

Someone said you can only use Amazon apps so what can you use from the Play Store?
Will Rockbox now support the reading of Audible books? I would love to have a little Sansa to slip in my pocket or purse but I would want to listen to Audible. It is the only thing preventing me from that purchase.

Re: Problems with Winrar

That isn't true.  You are evidently thinking about icons on the desktop.  She deleted the folder and files wich is not the correct way to delete programs in general.  yYou can delete portable programs that way and a very small number of others.

When somebody deleted something on one of my computers, the program had to be reinstalled in order for it to be thoroughly uninstalled.  George’s brother said it had to be done that way because it wouldn’t uninstall because it didn’t have all the parts to the program anymore.  Pam.

You may not have been looking in the correct place, but if zip files were associated with WinRAR, the chances are that there was in fact an uninstall entry.  At least in Programs and Features.  The problem you are experiencing is being caused because zip files are currently associated with WinRAR which is now missing.  If you had uninstalled the program instead of simply deleting it, the uninstall procedure would have restored the default zip file association.  After you reinstall WinRAR, type
Programs and Features
into the
"Start"
menu search field.  When you find it, press Enter.  When Programs and Features opens, look for WinRAR in the list of installed applications and then press Enter to uninstall it.

You should never just delete an application unless it is absolutely necessary because you may experience exactly these types of problems.  My suggestion would be to reinstall WinRAR and then correctly uninstall it from Programs and Features or from it's uninstall shortcut in the

"Start"

menu.  The default zip extract options should then be restored.

Am I correct with what I said?  That she didn’t delete the program, just the icon for the program?  I learned about doing that a long time ago.  I think a lot of people don’t know that.  They think they can just hit delete, and that takes care of that.  One of my husband’s friends did that on my old computer with something called the alexa tool bar, which was some kind of spam I got from somewhere.  Pam.

Hahahha, "For an inexpensive tablet for watching videos, reading
books,
listening to music, browsing the web, checking email, and using
Facebook,
Amazon's Kindle

Fire tablets are a fine deal."

That were the answers to my questions.

So, what's the voice on these tablets. Also, do I swipe and
double tap like
on an ipad? I know what's her name, alexa, will answer after
pressing the
home button, but that's different from when navigating the darn
thing right?
The home screen sounds boring too, but I'm blind, why should that
matter
right? Smile.

Thanks for the article.

Not something I've seriously investigated, but don't Fire tablets
run a
limited version of Android? In which case, wouldn't you be
better off just
buying a standard Android tablet? You can find some Android
tablets for as
little as $80 to $100.

Hi,

I'm googling and trying to find the newest articles discussing
the
differences between fire tablets and ipads.

What can yall tell me about the differences. Before I end this,
hopefully
the question not asked is "Well, depends what you are using it
for."

Just quick questions, and feel free to unload with your general
answer, but
can you practically do the same thing on a fire tablet like what
you can do
on an ipad?

Download apps, surf the net, check email, things like that.

Unless the google hit was incorrect, I am seeing a $50 fire
tablet out there
now.

I mean, if it can do what I just listed, I'll save $150 for
purchasing a
fire tablet smile.

Ivona is the voice on it. But yes, you do have to swipe and double tap, though there are a few different commands from Ipad.

Amazon made their own OS, which is a forked version of Android. I personally think that the accessibility of the Fire Tablet is amazing. It is a little low on specs, but for a $50 tablet, I think you should go for it. You can technically put the Play Store on it, though it is a little tricky. I had a friend who is on this list that helped me get the Google Play Store on my Fire. And I do not regret getting that on there, but even still, you can do all of the things that was listed in your email.
Thanks,
Zachary Morris

We sell these tablets on our site and we do put the Google Play Store
on them plus set up the accessibility. Thus far the only apps known
not to run on the Fire tablets are TalkBack and other TTS apps from
Google's Play Store. However there is a different Screen reader called
Shine which does run on the Fire Tablets.

Amazon bought Ivona a few years ago so the voices are the Ivona
voices. The US voices are Sally and Joey. They're very good voices but
don't have much of a lag if at all on the Fire tablets.

I have one and it is very good for the price. The camera is not quite as good as on a IPad. Your limited to the Amazon apps, but there are thousands to choose from.VVoice Biew is a very good screen reader. You do swipe and double tap. not sure if the gesters are the same as an IPad. Alexa is excellent.

I have Google store and Amazon loaded on my Fire.
I have the latest update for my Fire installed.
The voices are very good and I look forward in using my Fire.
Thanks!

Not something I've seriously investigated, but don't Fire tablets run a limited version of Android?  In which case, wouldn't you be better off just buying a standard Android tablet?  You can find some Android tablets for as little as $80 to $100.

Hi,

I’m googling and trying to find the newest articles discussing the differences between fire tablets and ipads.

What can yall tell me about the differences. Before I end this, hopefully the question not asked is “Well, depends what you are using it for.”

Just quick questions, and feel free to unload with your general answer, but can you practically do the same thing on a fire tablet like what you can do on an ipad?

Download apps, surf the net, check email, things like that.

Unless the google hit was incorrect, I am seeing a $50 fire tablet out there now.

I mean, if it can do what I just listed, I’ll save $150 for purchasing a fire tablet smile.

 

Respectfully,

A World Free of Charging Cables?  It's All Up To Apple
By Roger Cheng/CNET

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge features wireless charging, and successor the S8
will likely have the same capability.

The pitch has always been a simple one: Place your phone down and watch it
charge automatically, without the fuss of finding an outlet or connecting a
power cord.

The reality of wireless charging, however, has been anything but.

Differing technologies and incompatible standards have hindered broader
adoption of wireless charging. It was good enough to work in Oral-B electric
toothbrushes in the early '90s, yet most phones still lack the ability to
charge without a power cord.

But 2017 appears to be the year wireless charging gets its act together.
You're starting to see an accelerating trickle of products incorporating the
feature, from a Dell laptop unveiled at CES to automakers looking for a way
to more easily power their electric vehicles. The most obvious spark could
come from Apple, which appears ready to get off the sidelines and commit to
the feature in a big way by joining the Wireless Power Consortium. The
rumors of the iPhone 8 getting wireless charging alone are enough to get
people thinking about the feature.

"Whoever Apple picks wins," said Avi Greengart, an analyst at research firm
Global Data. "That's the catalyst that would drive enough volume."

Apple declined to comment on how the WPC will impact the next iPhone.

"Apple is an active member of many standards development organizations, as
both a leader and contributor," the company said. "Apple is joining the
Wireless Power Consortium to be able to participate and contribute ideas to
the open, collaborative development of future wireless charging standards."

An embrace of wireless charging by the iPhone maker could mean a resurgence
of interest in the feature. Last year, "things lost steam a bit," according
to IHS analyst David Green. Yes, the number of wireless charging devices
grew 40 percent year over year in 2016, but that was largely because Samsung
incorporated the feature into its Galaxy S7 and Note 7 phones.

And just because wireless charging is in a phone doesn't mean consumers are
taking advantage of it -- or even aware of the capability.

The market is expected to nearly double to 375 million devices in 2017, and
Green said he expects at least one more player to publicly embrace wireless
charging at the Mobile World Congress trade show next week.

Obvious benefits

Phone makers for years have touted wireless charging as a key feature. Nokia
famously championed it with its flagship Lumia phones, and Google and LG
incorporated it into the Nexus 4 phone.

Those companies used a technology called inductive charging -- the same as
that electric toothbrush -- which requires you to place the device on a
charging pad in a specific position.

Newer forms of wireless charging open the door to different applications.
Magnetic resonance gives you a bit more freedom, so you don't have to lay
your phone down at an exact spot. It can charge multiple devices with
different power needs. It can also charge across a few inches and through
objects, so you can mount a charging pad under a table rather than have a
specific built-in inductive charger in your furniture (which Ikea actually
offers).

That ability to charge over a short distance is an opportunity for
automakers and their electric cars. Alex Gruzen, CEO of WiTricity, which
builds chips to power magnetic resonance technology, said he's planning for
car launches in 2020 that will take advantage of the technology. He sees
phones capable of using magnetic resonance coming next year.

"Wireless charging is part of everyone's future roadmap," Gruzen said.

Meanwhile, companies like Energous are exploring sending power over radio
frequency airwaves, similar to how online connectivity gets broadcast over
Wi-Fi. In fact, Energous plans to integrate its power broadcasting
capabilities into Wi-Fi routers next year.

Beyond phones, that kind of capability would be ideal for low-power sensors
like smoke detectors or even smaller devices like hearing aids.

While the idea of charging something 15 feet away sounds great, there are
questions about how quickly you can charge over the air. Energous also needs
to get approval from the Federal Communications Commission to ensure its
system is safe.

"We are quite comfortable that we have developed tech that conforms to their
guidelines," said Energous CEO Steve Rizzone.

How did we get into this mess?

Here's where things get confusing.

Despite the range of technologies, the standards battles have largely been
fought around two incompatible versions of inductive charging.

On one side is Qi, championed by the Wireless Power Consortium. It boasts,
by far, the most wireless charging products.

On the other side is a form of inductive charging pushed by Powermat and the
AirFuel Alliance, an amalgamation of two former groups that now also
embraces magnetic resonance and radio frequency charging. (I told you this
was confusing.)

Powermat has invested in building a network of charging stations in retail
locations like Starbucks and McDonald's, but has fewer phones in the market
using its technology.

Samsung actually had a chance to provide some clarity, but opted to play
nice and incorporate both versions into its Galaxy S phones. That just led
to more confusion, with both standards crowing about being in the
high-profile devices.

"By not picking the winner, it almost prolongs the pain," Greengart said.

Talking to the two sides is like talking to a Golden State Warriors fan and
a Cleveland Cavaliers fan: You're going to get two distinct realities.

"They're not there," WPC Chairman Menno Treffers said of the competition.
"There's not much of a battle anymore."

"The adoption is so small now, there's no one to say what the standard is
going to look like," said Ron Resnick, chairman of the AirFuel Alliance.

You can see why we're still in a logjam.

Where Apple comes in

Apple could provide some clarity. Earlier this month, it confirmed it had
joined the WPC, sparking speculation that the purported iPhone 8 would
include wireless charging.

It isn't just joining for show. Treffers said that Apple is expected to make
a technical contribution to Qi and that company representatives were in
London last week making a presentation, part of a broader gathering of
members.

WPC membership doesn't guarantee that the iPhone uses Qi. Note that the
Apple Watch uses a form of inductive charging too.

But if Apple commits to Qi, Powermat CEO Elad Dubzinski said his network of
charging stations could support the standard with a mix of hardware and
software tweaks. He said he was more concerned with managing the network of
services that would flow on top of wireless charging, say, at a Starbucks.

There's also the persistent chatter that Apple is exploring wireless
charging over several feet, which is where Energous could come into play.
Rizzone has hinted at a "key strategic partner," which many have taken to
mean Apple.

Energous has given this partner a one-year exclusivity deal for a specific
product category. Given Apple's eagerness to lock up new features for
itself, the deal might signal that future iPhones could embrace radio
frequency charging.

And that ultimately could be the answer, with companies incorporating
inductive or magnetic resonance for faster charging over shorter distances,
and radio frequency to help keep your battery topped off.

No matter how things shake out, it may take Apple to light the way.

"It's a chicken-and-egg problem that can only be solved by a fruit,"
Greengart said.
