Amazon Fire Phone review: Excellent for Amazon shopping and media services, but not a great smartphone
Amazon's Fire Phone is made to offer you an enhanced Amazon shopping and media experience, but the high price and AT&T exclusive smother most of the excitement for some interesting tricks.
Amazon rolled out an update for its Fire OS to most Kindle Fire tablets. The update further removes owners from the Android experience.
Amazon is aiming the Kindle Fire at mainstream consumers, and has created an out-of-box experience that is as good as anything I have seen.
Apple changed their in-app purchase policy that forced ebook vendors to close their integrated stores. Amazon is the first out of the gate with a solution that includes a store and a web browser-based ebook reading experience with the Kindle Cloud Reader.
The last paragraph of my last blog post glossed over perhaps the most important part of the change in Microsoft's data centre strategy - the fact that it's hiring a new cadre of cloud data centre engineers with internet scale experience, bringing in staff who've been at companies that were built at cloud scale from the start; from Amazon, from Google, and from Facebook.

My primary reason for carrying an ebook reader over a regular book is the convenience of carrying many titles in a small form factor and buying books for less than hardback prices. While my B&N nook has multiple connectivity support I only like and need this to help get content onto the device. After that, I want an isolated book experience where I can sit on the couch and read for an hour or two without being bothered.
Despite being given the royal thumbs-up from Oprah last week, the Amazon Kindle looks to be a technology in search of a market. After some hands-on experience, I must say that the reality is much worse than I imagined.
Amazon follows Apple with solid financial results. Sales are up 31%.
Mike Fisher and Ben Widhelm, founders of ElephantDrive, show how their mashup with Intelâ€™s Mobile SDK and Amazon S3 APIs have improved their customersâ€™ user experience by improving mobile aspects of an existing web solution.
