My family gave me a Kindle Fire for Christmas five years ago. I believe it was that long ago. Never had any trouble with it and I buy lots of freebies and discounted books from various sources.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

buy a real samsung tablet
download readers for kindle nook pdf etc

it will be useful for many things
not just an ordering tool for amazon or b&n

my amazon fire only reads books well and the weather ap is so so , the browser quirky,
it tries to do other things but nothing well, and nothing really useful works right
these ereaders are mainly devices to sell you stuff more ways with their ordering aps and ads

its an amazon fanatics gadget
not worth it at all

i have a kindle
i have a nook
i have a real tablet

by far the best is a real samsung tablet

you can add anything that fire or nook has to a real tablet
and you lose all the annoyances that are built in the devices meant to tie you to a seller

It's not that old, and people add comments so that's why it comes up again. Happens in all forums. So nothing is messed up.

The post before yours came on the 14th and was from someone else. And a post asking for info/opinions on something that people are buying now and in the future can have long if sporadic lifetime.

In other words, no, it's not broken in this context, and nothing to get your underwear in a bundle about.
