Welcome to Feedback Loop, a weekly roundup of the most interesting discussions happening within the Engadget community. There's so much technology to talk about and so little time to enjoy it, but you have a lot of great ideas and opinions that need to be shared! Join us every Saturday as we highlight some of the most interesting discussions that happened during the past week.
This week, we discussed our favorite messaging apps, rooting Amazonian tablets, the games we're playing and whether 3D movies are coming to next-gen consoles. Head on past the break and join the conversation.
Favorite messaging apps
Facebook's recent acquisition of WhatsApp highlighted how popular and valuable (evidently) messaging applications are. Assuming your friends and family haven't made the choice for you: How do you pick which service to use? Head over to the Engadget forums and let us know how you keep in contact with the loved and loathed ones in your life.
Rooting a Kindle Fire HD
The Kindle Fire HD is quite a capable slate, and it's cheap too. Engadget reader bkowalski3000 isn't so fond of being restricted to the Amazon ecosystem however, and wants to know how to root it. Got the knowledge to help him out? Head on over to the forums and let him know what you do.
Operation Finish All The Games
Engadget's product database wizard Kris is on a mission to finish all the games. Every single one of them. In her most recent post in the Engadget forums, she gives us an update on her progress. Check it out and let us know which games you've been playing recently.
3D movie support for Xbox One and PS4?
With the abundance of 3D televisions and Blu-ray content on the market, CAThornhill is wondering why next-gen consoles don't let us watch movies in three dee. What do you think the issue is? Our forums are the perfect place to indulge in speculation as to whether we'll ever be able to watch films in the third dimension on our gaming consoles.
