Tip #19: Website addresses that work on Kindle

Amazon's Kindle is made for reading. It's a dedicated e-reader and it does its job superbly.  On the other hand, its internet capabilities are limited, and depending on the signal strength it can be very slow.

That's okay by me. I've said many times, we have several computers and laptops - I don't need another web browser! It is nice, however, to have access once in a while, such as being on a day trip and not having any other computer access. Previously I have listed pages for email access, and others are already programmed into your Kindle's web browser. Below are a few others I have tested recently on my Kindle.

If you are reading this on a computer, you'll have to type them into your Kindle's web browser. To access that from the main page:
  click MENU > Experimental, then click Basic Web.
  That brings you to your bookmarks. Click MENU > Enter URL
  You can bookmark each one by clicking MENU > Bookmark This Page

Then type in the website addresses.

If you are reading this from a Kindle blog subscription, then just turn on your wireless and click the links!

- facebook: read your recent top news on facebook & post news at m.facebook.com
- Paypal: send money, pay for purchases, check balance at https://mobile.paypal.com
- ebay: http://m.ebay.com
- Best Buy: http://m.bestbuy.com/m/b/
- Bing: http://m.bing.com/

As I test a few more, I will add them here!
