    Amazon added some fuel to the Kindle and announced their entry into the tablet market with the Amazon Fire. Its biggest feature is undoubtedly the $199 price tag, positioning it well below Apple’s cheapest iPad.

    The Fire has a 7-inch IPS display (Gorilla glass and 169 pixels per inch) and only 8GB of storage. The fire has a dual core CPU, 512MB of RAM, WiFi only, and weighs a meager 14.6 ounces. Oddly, battery life wasn't addressed during the ...

    It only took four years, but Apple has finally been denied the "multitouch" trademark.

    The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board at the United States Patent and Trademark Office upheld a USTPO lawyer’s decision to deny Apple’s initial 2007 trademark application. Apple’s failed appeal means the term “Multitouch,” not the technology itself, is free for anyone to use.

    The trademark attorney pointed out ...

    Apple’s Assistant—if the reports are true—could be an enormous leap forward in voice control and the must have feature of the upcoming iPhone.
