Amazon web reader is screwed up

Usually in my chrome browse I launch read.amazon.com and I’m in my library. But no more. I’ve made sure all my browser extensions in Chrome are shut off things like AdBlock, ScriptSafe et al. but when I hit read.amazon.com I get the following:

We’re sorry.Kindle Cloud Reader is not currently available on this browser.ChromeSafariEdge or Firefox to read on web. Um I’m using Chrome. It seems they changed something that makes trying to read on the Chrome browser either on my Chromebook or my phone not work at all.

Funny enough the KIndle app on the phone works but I like it on the Chromebook.

It’s funny too that I’ve seen outages on google, Amazon et al. Recall working in one place that depended heavily on Google products and one day Google services like mail, calendar etc. just went belly up. That was fun.

A vexing Windows 7 problem might have resolution

I’ve now got three different browsers on this Win7 box. Internet Explorer (aka Exploder), Google Chrome, and Firefox.

Now in Chrome and Firefox I note CPU swamping when I’m watching any flash based site. And h.264 and Silverlight are no joy either but they don’t cause as much of an issue as Flash.

I’m seriously considering reverting Flash versions to resolve this issue. Now we’ve always been told keep your software up to date for the reasons of security. But sometimes you just have to say ‘fuck it’ and go with an older version of the software because it can’t run on a 64 bit machine.

Now if I could only figure out why I can’t login to WordPress using two factor in Firefox 38. I key in my username and password and I’m prompted for the authentication code, which I plug in and WordPress blows me back to the login screen. So I’m using Chrome to post this article.

So now I have to use three different browsers – IE to access office based stuff, Chrome to access WordPress and FIrefox for everything else.
