Computer:
fixed touchpad issues (static induced probably, it did not work and jumped around only when not charging) by changing background noise cancellation & senstivity parameters. The hardware wasn't hopelessly broken after all.

Just got an external hard drive, since I have only 16GB (it was meant s a chromebook with cloud storage).

I believe I have a working computer now without having to send the whole thing back or attack any more mouse, keyboard, screens.

Kindle:
I wanted to use the "vocabulary builder" - not to quiz myself (gross), I just want to see a list of things I've looked up in each book. But sometimes words (from well-known books) are not in the dictionary and it is impossible to add them to the list by hand. Minor but annoying. I'm having to keep "coquelicot", "rhodomontade", and "pattened" in my head.

The reading speed estimates are very wrong. Thinks I will read a 600 page book in about 20 minutes. Yesterday I had to read for 40 minutes to reduce the "time left in book" by 2 minutes. Even if I reset it it goes back to being very wrong after some time.

Phone: still broken (for the second time). Do not recommend XPeria Z1 at all, it splinters at the slightest provocation and once it does the whole touchscreen (and therefore everything) is unusable.
