With Sony and Samsung vying for the spotlight at last week's IFA show while Nokia and Motorola Mobility keep tech journalists busy on Wednesday, that leaves Amazon as the last one out the door to announce new products ahead of Apple's own event next week.
While Apple users were out enoying the summer sun in their four- and five-star hotels that they may or may not have booked through Orbitz, Zynga unveiled that its expanding its gameplay and allowing users to play with each other across different platforms. The San Franciso-based game company may or may not be planning world domination. Meanwhile, there's talk in the bushes about a new Kindle Fire hitting Amazon's virtual store shelves soon, while Brightcove works on a sweet toolkit that might turn your Apple TV into a mini living room game console. Look out, Xbox 360!
