Y for a thousand, Alex.

I'm gonna go with "Q" for Question as in, "Did you have one?".

Oh. Wait. Q isn't in the middle. Dang.

joan, is the issue here that you have a Kindle with a physical keyboard and the letter marking the button has rubbed off?

Which Kindle do you have?

Maybe "N" for Needlessly Nasty. You know, Joan might be someone's 80-year-old great grandmother, just trying to figure out this internet thing.

I very much doubt it. In general, 80 year olds are much better at expressing themselves in complete sentences than is evident in the OP.

I like Bufo's theory as to what the question is, though.

I really hate when people jump to the ageist remarks: most 80 year olds are going to be in two camps: either they've been on computers for years now, or they are never going to touch one. An 80 year old (which isn't btw, helpless under most circumstances) that has a kindle but not forged into the computer age, is going to contact their loved one for help -- or whomever got them the kindle to begin with.

My mum is in her 70s. She's just as adept as am I on her computer. Indeed, she owned a PC years before I did.

See, I probably would have gone with the "H" missing from the Fire. (*shrug*)

We may never know.

Noooooooooo, don't say that! I NEED to know :-)

Come on, Joan! If you need help with something, you really need to tell us what your problem is.

A. Sisk,
In the United States in 2000, Alzheimer's disease (the most common form of dementia) was estimated to affect 19% of people age 75-84, and 42% age 84+.

Life expectancy of women born in the United States today is only about 81 years ( -- and was less when today's 80-year-olds were born.

Acknowledging reality isn't "ageist."

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 5, 2013 11:41:08 AM PDT
Yes, but dementia, as a general thing, makes people forget their current life. It's their early life (wherein they were drilled in grammar and sentence construction) that they retain best memory of.

But since no-one's tracking the thread, we may never get more information.
