I just used the Kindle Fire to look at some pages here on my Qube, such as some of the reviews. They show up fine on the Kindle, and I can load the images and follow links.
But none of that activity appeared in the Qube's logfile. I can only assume that what I was looking at was cached data on an Amazon server.
I tried the same thing with this page on mee.nu, and Sitemeter didn't show any accesses which were recognizably from me.
I wonder how much of the web they're caching, and how often they check?
UPDATE: It isn't that simple. Moments after I made this post, I looked at it with the Kindle and it was there, including my IP.
UPDATE: OK, I'm an idiot. The reason I didn't see my own accesses in the raw access log is that the script is set up to filter them out. Sheesh.

No, not really. You can turn the page by swiping across the screen, and that's completely reliable. You can also do it by tapping on one side or the other, and if you were to double-tap, I suppose you might get two pages.
Tapping is easier, and that's what I've gotten into the habit of doing. But if you were having problems, the swipe would be more reliable.

I'd like to be able to charge it off my computer, using USB. IIRC the documentation says that's possible. They didn't include a USB cable, though. I dug into my cable drawer and found what I thought was the right one, and it didn't fit. Wrong size.
I may have to take the charger brick with me to the store next time I go and see if I can find a USB cable with the same connector on it.
