When researching the differences between the New Kindle Fire, and the Kindle Fire HD, the page for the New KF mentions having double the memory than the old Kindle Fire. However, it still lists having 8GB of memory for storage and 1 GB of RAM. This is the same as the old Kindle Fire. Am I missing something?

It's double the RAM, not double the storage space. The 1st gen Kindle Fire had 512 MB of RAM, the 2nd Gen has 1 GB. To get more storage you need to upgrade to the Kindle Fire HD models, they start at 16GB and go up to 64 GB.

I curse the day "memory" stopped being synonymous with RAM and started meaning storage.

It didn't. People who misuse the term that way are as wrong as they ever were.

If you want more STORAGE, you can use a wi fi drive like the Kingston Wi Drive or the SeaGate GoFlex Satellite Drive.

Kingston Digital Wi-Drive 32 GB USB 2.0 Pocket-Sized Portable Storage with US AC Adapter (WID/32GB-A)

Seagate GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage 500 GB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive STBF500101 Black
