Judging from Amazon's press release on Monday, the e-tailer is ramping up its plans to mimic Netflix when it comes to streaming original content. Needless to say, the endgame is to bolster its subscriber base for Amazon Prime, which already offers thousands of movies and TV shows as well as its original benefit, two-day shipping. Will it succeed? The answer to that question may be more apparent later this month. Read on to find out why!
So how was everyone's first weekend with the iPad Air? We managed to place our online order in the wee hours of Friday morning for in-store pickup later the same day, and our local Apple retail store apparently only had a handful of folks lining up to get theirs when the doors opened. Were you among the first to buy one this past weekend? If so, chime in with your thoughts on Apple's latest tablet in the comments below.
That e-tailer Amazon is working diligently on its own smartphone is hardly a secret -- it's been rumored for quite some time. But could the company partner with HTC and make the handset exclusive to subscribers of its Prime service?
It's Oscar season in Hollywood, and IMDb is celebrating with an update to its existing iOS app with a special section dedicated to the festivities, as well as an easier way for Amazon Prime members to enjoy their favorite films.
So, the 2012 Presidential elections are officially over, and regardless of who you voted for, it's time for America to get back to the business at hand. And what better way to do that than with a budget-priced Windows Phone 8 device? If the iPhone still hasn't lured you with its siren song, Nokia and AT&T are hoping to pull you in Microsoft's direction with some rock-bottom pricing on its latest generation of smartphones.
The iPhone 5 isn't the only gadget ready to face anxious consumers this morning, as Amazon's new seven-inch Kindle Fire HD is in stock and ready to ship along with the refreshed Kindle Fire and the basic $69 model.
It's a funny thing when a competitor's app is at the top of most iPad users' wish lists. For Amazon Prime members like myself, Instant Video's lack of compatibility with Apple was a glaring omission that threatened the future of many memberships, and clearly Amazon was aware of this. Luckily, the recently released Amazon Instant Video feels right at home on the iPad, with a smooth-scrolling interface that spotlights "featured" videos in an array of categories.
