Kindle Fire - Full Color 7" Multi-Touch Display with Wi-Fi - More than a Tablet

Kindle Fire - Full Color 7" Multi-Touch Display with Wi-Fi - More than a Tablet
This is the next-generation Kindle Fire HD but with an updated operating system and new features, a redesigned shell (with the power and volume control buttons more readily accessible) and the power adapter included rather than as a separate $19.99 accessory. And all of this at a great price. When you consider the formerly separate cost of the adapter, you'd have spent $80 more just a couple of months ago for almost the same tablet. NOTE: This is the base model of the three models that Amazon is shipping this year: the Kindle Fire HD, the Kindle Fire HDX, and the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9". Despite what I wrote above, this model is not really the successor for the Kindle Fire HD; it's the successor for the Kindle Fire. The successor for last year's Kindle Fire HD is this year's Kindle Fire HDX.

What is Metatron’s Cube? Metatron’s cube… contains complex sacred geometries, such as the five platonic solids. Opening consciousness’s doorways can be achieved through the contemplation of these underlying symmetries. Though the form’s roots may be ancient, the Metatron’s cube still finds relevance in spiritual symbolism today. As a symbol, the Metatron’s cube, like a map, can indicate many destinations. Ultimately you will decide where in the infinite realms of consciousness this map of ancient forms will take you. via Metatron’s Cube: An Aspect of Sacred Geometry .
