Could this be the start of the next Apple loyal type people?  Thats what your comment sure sounds like...even has the same wording as an Apple fanboy, and describes the products too.

I would rather Amazon be the next fanboy craze.  I could deal with them alot better than I could Apples dumbass followers, damn hipsters.

I had the nook color and loved it besides the fact that it was laggy with the CyanogenMod.  I was interested in the Fire until I found out there was no microSD slot, thus no easy way to put custom OS on it.  Then, the Nook Tablet was announced and Im sold on it.  To me Amazon dropped the ball on this with no expandable memory...Barnes and Nobel gets my money again.

Agreed. This geek is going with the better hardware. I know the Kindle Fire is still going to outsell the Nook. It is cheaper and it has a bigger name attached to it. For the people that are not geeks that just want to use it as is, it will appeal to them more because they don't understand the differences. But for me, the amount of storage and the ability to root it was a huge deal. The battery life and the reduced glare screen is also significant.

I do understand what they are tryng to do, make a device as simple as possible to appeal to the customers that can barely turn on a computer but like the idea of a tablet.  As you have stated, its not pushed towards us Geeks :)
