And now my phone will not connect to my wifi hub. Am I suddenly cursed?
My Kindle scared hell out of me last night, because Amazon rolled out an update. It was sitting here, turned off, and suddenly there was a busy-wait graphic on the screen and it stopped paying attention to me.
The Kindle and my tablet can both access the wifi, so that's not the problem. When the phone turns on, it connects to the wifi but fails when trying to get an IP assigned. Very strange.
Not really important, however; I don't use it for anything other than getting AccuWeather updates, and if necessary I can get that across Verizon. (I get a certain amount of digital data per month without extra charge, and this won't even come close to filling that up.)
But still very mysterious. Makes me wonder if Brickmuppet scheduled a trip to Portland or something.
Naah. Must be gremlins.

I don't have the slightest idea. It just showed up spontaneously and installed without asking my permission, and if there's some place that describes the new features I don't know what that might be.
If such a thing exists it's probably on Amazon's web site.
My Kindle Fire says its system version is "8.5.1_user_5158820", for whatever that's worth.

I reset the DHCP range and all is now good (but I asked Verizon for a new router).
