The ability to run Java based charts and streaming quotes on financial sites!

You're responding to a post from a year ago. And, it doesn't really matter what you want Java for on an Android tablet, it isn't going to happen any time soon.

That is frustrating! Will need to check on this for the newest Fire set for release later this month... I love the Kindle and have all generations but am very disappointed they didn't address this for the 1st gen Fire...

Did you read this thread? It isn't going to be any different on new models of the Fire because it is not possible to use Java on ANY Android device - Amazon has no control over that.

No, unfortunately I am one of those users who doesn't have time to read entire threads and annoys those who do by asking a question that was already, clearly been answered, mea culpa!

Fairness has nothing to do with it. No Android device (and all Fires are based on Android) can support Java. Oracle, the owner of Java, has been engaged in lawsuits with Google (the owner of Android) over the use of Java and does not permit it.

Can you play games from Yahoo on your kindle?

Java and javascript are different?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 13, 2012 10:46:28 AM PST
Yes, Java and Javascript are different. Not even related to each other, actually.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 13, 2012 11:04:37 AM PST
yes they are different

I have kindle fire he. cannot play games because it needs java machines downloaded. . is this possible?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 26, 2013 5:57:23 AM PST
If you'd bothered to read any of the posts in this discussion you'd already know it is NOT possible.

Perhaps artlvr is like many of us who never knew that there was a difference between Java and Java Script. Perhaps there is a difference between Java and Java Machines and that Kindle users COULD use Java Machines?

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 26, 2013 6:43:11 AM PST
The fact that Java and Javascript (all one word) are different is also stated several times in this discussion, so that's no excuse.

"Java Machine" is just the runtime for Java, not some other software, so not available on Android.

Bruce, those of us who have been following this thread are painfully aware that Java and JavaScript are two completely different things. That being so, for those of us with little to no knowledge of the running of computers/tablets/smart phones, know for a fact that Java and Java Machines are not completely different? I understand having that you have no patience for those people who you believe do not read the whole thread. But do have some understanding that not everyone has the knowledge that you possess.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 26, 2013 9:43:14 AM PST
You are confusing two separate statements I made here. I am being impatient with artlvr for not reading the thread, because doing so would have answered his/her question. I'm disagreeing with you that maybe artlvr didn't know the difference between Java and Javascript, because reading the thread also answers that question. That's the extent of my impatience.

I then responded to your question about Java vs. Java Machines, which I would not expect you to know, with what I thought was a simple explanation that they are the same thing. I wasn't feeling any impatience with that question, and don't think I expressed any in my answer.

If I read impatience into a post which had none, then I humbly apologize.

Posted on Jan 26, 2013 10:48:54 AM PST
No need. You were half right - but it was directed at artlvr, not your question.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 26, 2013 11:12:18 AM PST
Don't be so antisocial and keep your comments to yourself. You know darned well the question of Java and Fire began this discussion as far back as September. To make a remark like this makes me wonder if you read the posts.

Behave just a little bit. I tell people day after day the only dumb question is the one they are afraid to ask.
