I bought a Kindle Fire on day one... and despite its little quirks, have loved it. I got it mainly to read and watch movies on long trips (where I am away from Wi-Fi). I am leaving on a 7 day trip to the mountains this Thursday and rented a couple of movies from Amazon.
TOTAL surprise when I found out that downloading the rental to the Kindle starts the 24 hour rental period. This is absurd. I can't believe how disappointing this is. The 24 or 48 hour rental period should start once I hit play (just like iTunes and every other system). I should have 30 days to start watching it from when I rented it, regardless of where I watch it.
This is a deal breaker. Basically, I can't rent movies on this unless I'm never away from a Wi-Fi for more than 24 hours. Unbelievable. PLEASE fix this or explain how it makes sense.
