Apple and Amazon shouldn’t be competitors, as one is a retailer and the other a hardware manufacturer. In fact, they should be partners - with Amazon selling Apple products.
As we ramp up to Black Friday this year, I’m up to my armpits in new tablets, so much so that I’m convinced some must be having unprotected sex and making tablet babies. Of course, each tablet has its own unique advantages and disadvantages.
In research meant to highlight how the destruction of the Amazon rainforest could affect climate elsewhere, Princeton University-led researchers report that the total deforestation of the Amazon may significantly reduce rain and snowfall in the western United States, resulting in water and food shortages, and a greater risk of forest fires.
It's code-named "Cinnamon," and it has no release date or intended price however, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos likes to keep his hardware costs down. In that regard, we can expect him to enter into the fray against Apple TV at $99 and Roku at $50. I'll throw in Chromecast at $35 because, I like it better than the set-top box (STB) stuff.
The modern tablet market - created by Apple - has most recently been taken over by Google’s Android platform. However, Android is badly fragmented and the only pure player of scale seems to be Samsung, a corporation aggressively seeking an alternative.
If Google starts to get really evil its redemption will come from having given us Chromecast. This $11 piece of hardware should, unless the world is insane, kill the attached computing display for ever. Because, we should never have to lug around a laptop, or set up a room with a projector or a TV for meetings, or even have to go through the nightmare that is Hulu Plus on Tivo Premier.
Tim Lake happens to have a video surveillance system at his house. So when he saw a woman allegedly steal an Amazon package, he created a campaign to shame her.She hadn't come to borrow sugar nor to discuss some errant dog droppings. No, his video surveillance system showed ...
Amazon’s internal hardware engineering team is more sophisticated than Amazon’s line of decent but not so revolutionary tablets and e-readers would suggest.
If you count the promise of a 3 month subscription to Netflix then, maybe. The buzz on Chromecast is strong. At $11 it is pointless not to buy one or put your order in right now. Somewhere, at some cable company, an executive is falling and no one is there to hear him crash.
For years I’ve contributed for several screenwriting publications, and I’ve often been concerned about Hollywood being more concerned about the software the script was written with, instead of whether the script itself is actually any good or not. But, it's not all bad.
How many people hold seminars telling you how to be successful, and what the hell have they done to make a success out of themselves except hold seminars? In the case of Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, I definitely want to hear him talk about how he became a success (and hope some of it will rub off on me).
Of all the science-fiction tropes from late-20th-century pop-culture, perhaps none is as strong as the eternally futuristic rounded glass dome built to protect Earth’s fragile species.
It is starting to look like Apple's defense of its antitrust antics in the ebook trade is doomed even before it starts.
No one can say that Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has not done a lot with his life. He has been a philanthropist, inventor, investor, cancer survivor and author.
Although there are thousands of penny pinching price comparison sites out there, it seems online shopping is pretty big among affluent consumers who really don’t need to save at all.
Opinion Does being the Jack of all Trades and the master of none apply to Google? I fear so. Having oodles of cash has tempted Google into all manner of strange ventures but it’s pretty clear that some of its wacky ideas are way off kilter.
The French government is seriously considering a new tax on smartphones and tablets. The one percent tax would be imposed on a range of “internet compatible devices” and it could yield about 86 million euro per year.
Amazon has confirmed that its newly minted virtual currency can be used to purchase apps, games and in-app items in the corporation's curated Appstore, as well as on the Kindle Fire tablet lineup.
Worldwide tablet sales continued to surge, growing 142.4 percent in the first quarter of 2013.
Amazon's revenues slowed in the first quarter as the world's largest Internet retail struggled overseas.
