"I have so many Bluetooth speakers, it’s ridiculous," Amazon’s top reviewer says.
Note to self: stop checking out amazon reviews to figure out if a product is worth my time.
Amazon’s tutorial about how to enable the Amazon AppStore on Android is awesome. I love the section around the 0:40 second marker. The instructor tells the user to enable a setting that prompts the user with an alert. The instructor quickly tells users to just hit “OK”, without even making a brief mention about what the alert says.
Now if you see that the “unknown sources” box is not checked, click “unknown sources”. An “Attention” note will appear. Click “OK”. Nice Work. A green check mark has popped up in the “Unknown sources” box.
In case Android didn’t have enough security issues, just enable the this setting so that software can be installed from anywhere.
Now if you noticed that the box was already checked, that’s okay. Now we’re all together.
Yeah, thats okay that your phone was already open to the world to install software onto your phone by default and you probably didn’t know about it.
"Amazon has done what no other company apart from Apple does: have a singular voice, a singular pitch man, simple product line-up, release/shipping time table and products priced to move," wrote Om Malik.
I don’t care that you are quoting Om Malik, I care that you didn’t think twice before quoting.
Amazon doesn’t have a simple product line-up. It has an overly diverse confusing lineup. Lets take a look at the Kindle Family.

Gruber on the rumored 7” iPad:
I bet Apple could make a $199 iPad Mini and turn a profit on it — especially with a $249 version sitting next to it with double the storage. It’s that simple. If Apple thinks people would buy a smaller cheaper iPad and that they can turn a profit making them, they’ll do it. No reason to overthink it.
Keep in mind too that Amazon still only sells the Kindle Fire in the U.S., and Google is only selling the Nexus 7 in three countries — and outside the U.S.it won’t have music, magazines, or TV shows. Even if this iPad Mini doesn’t ship until October, Apple will likely beat Amazon and Google to market in much of the world.
Brilliant point about the international market availability.
