10/06/2011, The Kindle 3 was offered to the public at a very affordable rate. For Kindle 3 owners, you’re probably aware that in order to enjoy the $30 subsidy for your e-reader device, you’ve had to put up with rather annoying advertisements. The good news is that Amazon has caught on to that and are now offering a solution for owners of the Kindle 4.
10/05/2011, Amazon’s WhisperSync is one of Kindle’s most useful features: the ability to pick up and continue reading a book where you left off despite reading it previously on a different device is a big deal for a lot of people.

This basically out-pre-ordered (if there is […]
10/03/2011, As a consumer, I am clearly incensed to know that a particular device that I purchased has been restricted in some ways – and this is within reasonable means of course, as electronically limiting the speed in my car is understandable, but to have the Kindle Touch 3G from Amazon not run its Web browser on a 3G connection but Wi-Fi only? Don’t you think that that has proved to […]
09/30/2011, Amazon might have set the tech world ablaze with their recent tablet announcement, which is the Amazon Kindle Fire (check out our hands-on), and we have word that the company’s next tablet which is a 10.1″ model that is tipped to roll out next year will be looking towards Foxconn to manufacture it.

09/27/2011, Amazon must be very, very serious about their upcoming tablet announcement which is said to happen at tomorrow’s press conference, and here is yet another tell tale sign that would happen – the Internet giant has already arrived at points of agreement with a trio of large publishing houses in order to provide digital magazine content for their tablet – which we found out yesterday that it will be called […]

09/15/2011, As if getting a Kindle at a reduced price wasn’t good enough with Amazon’s Kindle with Special Offers, customers of the eBook reader are in for another treat. Amazon has just announced that customers will soon start receiving special offers from AmazonLocal on their Kindle screensavers when they aren’t reading (I don’t believe Amazon would make deals pop up while you were reading anyway – that would be annoying). AmazonLocal […]
