Title Trick: The Question- You need to try and ask a question that people will want to know the answer to. Another trick within this trick is to ask a question you don't even have the answer to. If they think you can give them an answer to "Why Do Men Infuriate Women?" they will click. They can't help themselves. Really your post is a very amusing anecdote of what happened on your date last night, but you created a good hook in your title.
Alright there are pluses and minus to each device and I wanted to be able to compare them side by side. Hopefully you will learn something from my research.

I think in the end it depends on what you are planning to do with the device. Are you planning to use it keep in touch with people? Avoid the Kindle Fire. Are you planning on reading books on it? Save yourself 300 bones and get a Kindle Fire. If all you really see yourself doing is reading books then get one of the cheaper Kindles LINK
