Over the years Amazon has made quite a bit of improvements to their Prime service. While originally just a free 2-day shipping deal, Amazon added a number of additional features including streaming video, streaming music, and recently even ad-free game streaming with their Twitch Prime service.
However, what’s disappointing is that Amazon doesn’t have any sort of books and magazine service with Amazon Prime, which is strange given that Amazon started their entire business off selling books, and offers the Kindle and Fire, some of the most popular eReaders and tablets on the market today. This however, is about to change.
According to a recent [...]
Razer, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware and software, today announced the addition of the Razer BlackShark Stereo Gaming Headset.

In a low-key event in Los Angeles on June 18th, 2012, Microsoft revealed its own line of tablets dubbed “Surface”, which will be running Microsoft’s upcoming operating system, Windows 8. Despite being a couple years late to the party, Microsoft has picked a critical time to enter the tablet market as growth in PC sales have slowed down considerably while interest in tablets such as the iPad or Amazon Kindle Fire are at an all time high.
Since we’re talking about Microsoft here, there practically has to be multiple editions of this thing and surprise surprise, there is. Luckily there’s only two versions to worry about though. Pro and [...]
Tablets are now all the rage and companies left and right are releasing their own kinds to get in on the booming business. Prior to the release of the Kindle Fire, there had been many other tablets on the market such as the ASUS Transformer, the Blackberry Playbook, the now discontinued HP Touchpad, as well as the iPad 2 which we all know and love. However, there is a problem – each of these products were expensive, and the iPad 2’s exclusive iOS operating system and its huge number of apps seemed to keep coming out top.
Enter the Amazon Kindle Fire. A sleek, gorgeous, seven-inch tablet built by the largest online retailer in America. Yes, [...]
Looks like another PR win for Amazon. They’ve recently announced that they’ve sold 1 million Kindles per week for 3 STRAIGHT WEEKS. That’s pretty damn impressive I must say and I can’t say I didn’t expect it. The leader of the pack, the Kindle Fire is an amazing device. Purpose built and well executed.
Congratulations, Amazon. Bring out the champagne because you deserved this one.
If you haven’t gotten your Kindle yet, join the party! It’s the most gifted, the most wished for and the most purchased item on Amazon so you can’t go wrong!

So after I posted the video on the Blackberry Playbook vs the Amazon Kindle Fire I did a bit of browsing and I found this really sweet article off lilputing which teaches us how to install the beta version of OS 2.0.
For those who don’t know, Playbook OS v2.0 will include a lot of the features that SHOULD’VE been included upon release of the Blackberry Playbook such as a native e-mail client for starters and a whole lot more. Anyway, this update should make your Blackberry Playbook a whole lot functional. Plus, updating to OS v2.0 is pretty simple so why not?
Anyway, here’s the directions from lilputing. I’ve adapted them a bit here, but [...]
According to the New York Times, Amazon is dropping an OTA software update for its Kindle Fire tablet within the next two weeks. This new update is supposed to address issues regarding privacy and general OS sluggishness as well as other customer and press complaints.
Seems like Amazon is really working hard to make the Kindle Fire a success. Personally, I’ve had no such problems, but I always welcome a good software update. Anybody have any of the problems listed above? I wanna know! Drop a comment.
So I had both the Kindle Fire and the Blackberry Playbook sitting around so I decided to do a comparison of the two devices. Really informal comparison for information only.
