Are you using wifi at McDonalds?
How many hours does a battery charge last.
1: same way you email from home. go to the log in page and have at it

2: everyone needs a server. you will automatically connect tot he correct one for your email account.

3: not necessarily. you can get wifi almost anywhere( there are even apps you can download to your Kindle or smartphone to find them locally)

4: depends on what you are using it for. I have the 1st gen Kindle Fire and if I am just reading, it lasts.. maybe 10-15 hours. if I have WiFi or am playing games regularly.. about half that.
