I just bought a first generation Kindle Fire, and I know there isn't a camera, but id like to know what the thing in the top left-hand corner is, because it sure looks like a camera to me.

Vivian - It's a non-functioning ambient light sensor.

Vivian, there were some hysterically funny threads back when that Fire first came out. Hundreds and hundreds of the same, "Is this a camera?" "I see a lens!" "Where's the camera?" questions. Over and over.

People started teasing and saying, "Yeeeees. It's a SPY camera. If you put your eyeball up to it, you'll be *injected* with truth serum, and a drone will pick you up and take you to Gitmo."

Then people *believed* the first word: "Yes" and would reply to the "spy camera" posts with, "How do I turn it on?" and no, they weren't asking ironically.

well, if you keep your post here - it won't be seen. YOu will need to either do a different search of the forum or create a new thread.
