Way to Go, Kindle

So yesterday I was going on a business trip to San Jose area for just the day. An early flight out, meetings all day and a late flight back to LAX. I was super excited for this business trip... no, not because I really gave a damn about the meetings, but because I was actually going to get to use my new KINDLE!

I recently got one for my birthday and have been waiting for just the right opportunity to use it for first time ever. I even purchased stylish hard cover, as not to scratch my new treasure. The hour or so flight up was to be the maiden voyage of my new fancy techie toy. I even planned ahead - I charged it last weekend so I would be all set to go yesterday morning.

So, I board the plane, settle into my seat, get my Starbucks all situated and pull out my Kindle. The long awaited moment is finally here... and here's what I see this message when I opened the cover:

"Critical Power Error. Your Battery is Empty."


I guess I'm such a freaking moron that I forgot to turn the damn thing off after charging.


  1. Oh, geeze. Is it wrong that this really made me laugh?! I can imagine myself doing the exact same thing. Hope you manage to enjoy it sometime soon.

  2. I love my kindle! One thing that helped my battery was to keep the wireless turned off if I'm not downloading a book. It lasts forever that way for me. I hope you get to use it a lot in the future.
