Kindle Fire Is 'Sold Out'

Kindle Fire quenched the Kindle Fire on Thursday, saying its first tablet computer is now "sold out."

Nexus 7

Google will sell a small tablet computer bearing its brand in a challenge to Amazon's Kindle Fire. The Nexus 7 is designed specifically for Google Play, the online store that sells movies, music, books, apps and other content - the things Inc. also sells for its tablet computer.

Senh: Sorry Google, you're kinda late to the party. Microsoft's Surface looks like a much more interesting device. Nexus 7 just sounds like Kindle Fire without Amazon's tweaks, which could be good I guess.

Amazon answers critics with Kindle Fire update

Kindle Fire Software Update

The New York Times reported that Amazon will roll out a Kindle Fire update "in less than two weeks." The cause for the update? Fixes for problems that have concerned many early users.

Senh: Great, Amazon's providing updates to the Kindle Firer to fix lots of issues, except for the one I care about the most: the ability to turn off one-click shopping on the device so my kids won't accidentally buy a bunch of apps and other stuff from Amazon.
