What does it mean when something says "active" on the Kindle? In this case it's Minesweeper. If there's a charge involved, I'd just as soon get rid of it. Thanks.

It means it's interactive - a game as opposed to a book that you just read.

"Active" simply means it's not a book. It's a program. Minesweeper has no charges. It's just a game.

It's a label identifies games and stands for active content. If you put a PDF file on your Kindle, you will see a little label to the left that says PDF. If you download a free sample, there is another label that says sample. I guess it's supposed to make it easier to identify the kind of content you have on the Kindle.
