The amazing Alpha Smart 3000

Been a long, long time since I praised the Alpha Smart 3000 writing tool. But I was thinking about it -- or rather thinking about writing if away from electricity for long periods of time -- and this sucker is the ticket. i haven't looked at it for several years. I turned it on. I check its battery life. 100%. Well, just sitting there. It runs for MONTHS on four AA batteries. It's limited == just writes text files, but hey, for most writing that's all that is necessary. This is the most amazing writing tool I've ever seen, despite computers and netbooks and tablets. I need to start using it again, just on principle.

What I need is a cable that hooks it up to my Fire. I have one for PC.
