In the middle of July I attended a training on VMware. This was my first experiences with virtualization, so you can imagine how blown my mind was at the end of the week long training. We had both lecture and lab, which made it great. I was able to play with high end features such as Storage VMotion, DRS and others. VMware itself is quite expensive, but sometimes you can find a VMware coupon here or there.
I was trained on vSphere 5.5 and know that version 6 is currently in public beta. I'd personally like to play with version 6 just to see and play with the new features.

So I made the jump and purchased the Amazon Kindle Fire just like possibly 2.5 million others. When searching around Amazon for Kindle Fire Accessories, I ran across many mixed reviews on different products which is why I've decided to put together a post about the different Kindle Fire Accessories around. I know as a consumer it can get quite difficult to find quality accessories for our devices, which is why I stick to known brands with most of my purchases. Below are some of my thoughts on products found just after the Kindle Fire began shipping.
Kindle Fire MicroShell Folio Cover by Marware - $29.99 This is the case I ended up purchasing based on price vs features comparison. The reviews stated it was light weight and practical. Most of the cases have mixed reviews so I will look again in a few months to see where they stand at that point. I'm sure new Kindle Fire Accessories will be coming out in the coming weeks.
Kindle Fire Leather Cover by Marware - $44.99 This product, while pricey, was the highest rated cover. While it still had mixed reviews, they appeared to have decent positives. I like the fact that the cover would double as a stand which could come in handy quite often.
My wife found the Kindle Fire MicroShell Folio Cover by Marware to fit her well. It is very light weight and keeps the Kindle Fire safe with all her travels. She does not use it very much as a stand since it is used while in bed or on the couch, so the kickstand functionality is not a feature we'd look at in the future.
