No, no, I meant he helped me make it. We use unicorns and baby panda bears and fuzzy yellow ducklings if we can catch them. I want cookies now.

OK, OK. I'll tell you. itbis is a new brand of biscuit the Amazon is taste testing. If you see the logo 'ITBIS' on your Fire you can click on it and Amazon will send you a sample package of the biscuits.

I've been privileged to try them and I can tell you, they are amazing. I've been able to get twice as much work done as previously and I also won the Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepsteaks.

Then you'll be happy to know that this item is back in stock! Canned Unicorn Meat

No canned Unicorn for me. I like it fresh. The horn makes a nice fireplace poker too.

That Amazon was able to fool a tech blog into thinking the Fire's prototype Vortex Manipulator is really an ambient light sensor.

I thought you were sworn to secrecy!!!

Now you've done it. Do me a favor and stay away from me, I don't need to be in the crossfire when the amazon cleaning crew shows up to get you. You spilled the beans about the component-that-must-not-be-named. Been nice knowing you even if it was just on the forums.

While I realize telling the truth about that mystery spot on the Fire puts me in mortal peril, someone has to speak up if we're to have any hope of preventing the Paradox Convergence of 2014. I've seen that future ; I don't want to go back there. If we don't stop Amazon's reckless experimentation now, then there may be no way back.

I have to cut this short, as that nice nurse Klein is here with my morning paper cup of Voices Go Bye-Bye pills ...

Hail Ming!

You were warned. Let this be a stern lesson to those who would spill Ammy's secrets. The consequences are dire!!!

P.S. Check your cake this afternoon. I think you'll find a little something to help you saw your way out. So geese. Tally ho.

Do the forums go away with the voices? You are there because they already got to you. I wonder how many others there with you have been disappeared for the duration?

Hey, wait. Does that future involved Amazon doing away with Apple? There is a lot of oppression I can live with so I never have to hear "Well, my iPad does so much more that your kindle."

Well of course it is, any idiot can see that. I thought it was so self evident that it didn't need proof! (Of course the new Kindle Fires now have the production level Vortex Manipulator installed since the prototype proved so successful.)

Can Vortex Manipulators be adapted to use 3G?

>"Does that future involved Amazon doing away with Apple?"

Apple as a business entity was totally distroyed [sic] in the First Wave of Paradoxes to come crashing down. They live on now only as a rallying cry for the Techno-Flagellants who preach that only by flogging themselves with proprietary data cables can they curry enough favor with The Great Jobs to be granted immunity from the necrotizing fasciitis carried in the saliva of the Demon Dogs which came as part of the Third Wave of Paradoxes.

>"Can Vortex Manipulators be adapted to use 3G? "

Yes, but unfortunately the data plan is only payable in a currency which has yet to be invented.

Desperate message from those fighting against a future which must not be : please send more pie.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 20, 2012 11:33:50 AM PDT
Darn it, so I have to wait until the Fifth Wave of Paradoxes and the Apple Inquisition? At least, from what I hear, the Fourth Wave of Paradoxes will include the sequels to "The Last Airbender" and "John Carter".

>"... will include the sequels to "The Last Airbender" and "John Carter". "

Unfortunately those had a short theater run-time due to the huge success of "Showgirls II : Electric Boogaloo (in 3D/Smell-O-Vision)".

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 20, 2012 11:49:40 AM PDT
I loved "Showgirls"!

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 20, 2012 12:00:44 PM PDT
That would be moving backwards, silly Rocker. Why would they use 3G when the ones on our current fires are already using 45.62G right now?

Don't go all berton on us now. We're counting on you.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 20, 2012 12:40:54 PM PDT
I must be stuck in some sort of temporal fugue between the First Wave of Paradoxi, and the Heat Death of the Universe.
